A Green Polka Dot Nursery for a Happy Baby Room October 02 2009

It's a unique touch that brings the warmth and coziness we crave in our baby rooms.  You can create texture with more earth-friendly materials such as a natural grass woven floor mat which would bring a more earthy, modern feel to the nursery. The 4 piece polka dot baby bedding set (currently on sale for $129), valence, lamp, and wall hangings can all be found at Baby's 'R Us. See our other inspiring ideas for a themed nursery.
