Pretty Aqua Baby Rooms - a Modern Take on Traditional Blue June 05 2013

We couldn't help but notice a trend in aqua baby rooms. Bright and cheery, aqua can serve as a neutral color as it can handle many accent colors. See some gorgeous aqua nurseries we have found below.

What a success! The frilly crib skirt with the vintage birds on the crib bumper are darling and were sewed by her mother-in-law. Her husband painted the tree mural peeking out in the corner of the photo. We love the texture of her bubble gum pink colored rug from Pottery Barn Kids. Note the shade of aqua paint on the walls is on the green side of aqua which lends itself to a minty-fresh look. Yummy!

Bright and bold, we love the two-toned turquoise walls that show off a deep aqua on the bottom half and a lighter shade of aqua paint of the top half to better reflect the light in the room. We are also fans of the giraffe lamp with a bold yellow lampshade.

Aqua and white polka dots, zig zaps, and fun alphabet wallpaper bring the "wow" to this nursery. This nursery, shown in vintage style, can easily be made to look more modern with modern furniture and other modern baby room decor elements.

See Cate Create designed her son Sawyer's nursery in teal and orange with a woodsy theme featuring owls, squirrels, and deer. She made the mobile herself by cutting out leaves and stringing them together like garland. She hand-stamped the nursery pillows, framed the animal silhouettes, and made the owl pillow out of a towel and scrap fabric - a great DIY nursery!
