Name: Quinlan (8 1/2 months)
Location: Newton, MA
I am a huge Beatles fan, and for some odd reason the only nursery themes I could come up for my son with were Lennon-McCartney songs! Strawberry Fields Forever, Octopus's Garden, Rocky Raccoon, etc. But we ultimately settled on Yellow Submarine, combined with aquatic/underwater elements.
We wanted the theme and color palette to be bright and cheerful, to provide Quinlan with a visually stimulating environment. Just about everything on the walls - from the Beatles figurines to the sea creature decals on the wall above the changing table (lots of faces) - was carefully selected to foster his visual and social development. And we've brought in many personal and handmade items, including underwater photos by Quinlan's "grammy," and a blue and yellow blanket that I knit. Most importantly, our "client" absolutely loves it!
