That pretty much describes the words that came out of our mouths when we saw this fabulous modern orange and aqua nursery designed by a Massachusetts mom. Who can resist being pulled into this cheerful room? Baby may never want to come out! Mom tells us, "I didn't do a particular theme. I just wanted to focus on the color scheme of  turquoise/blue and orange. That's why I loved the owl tree decal - because the owls were blue and orange." We're so honored to be a part of this mom's fabulous nursery and so glad she was willing to share her decorating secrets. She tells weeDECOR, "The room was already painted and ready to go a year ago when we moved in. It's a minty green. We purchased the crib 5 years ago (Nurseryworks) as it was originally my daughter's. The bureau came from IKEA. I made the two hanging owl pictures out of heavy paper stock and framed them. We purchased the bedding at Target (Bacati Mod Sports baby bedding) because it contained my color scheme. The accent rug was from Target as well as the orange lamp. The curtains were purchased at Walmart.com. I decided to incorporate both colored window panels on the large window." She further explains, "I love how the crib is the focal point in the center of the room.The tree on the wall block contains pictures of my husband, daughter, a 3D picture of the baby and me. Those trees were the centerpieces at my shower (some blue, some orange). The hostess of the shower used the colors of the nursery as the shower theme and wanted to tie in my tree wall decal with real trees as centerpieces. I ordered the paper lanterns to add more pops of color through lunabazaar.com (about $2 each). Overall, it was pretty inexpensive to decorate." So modern, so classy, and so cost savvy - we love it! Thanks, mom, for sending in your photos. They make us smile! For more ideas on how to decorate with wall decals, see our other customer photos.

Unique Decorating Idea - Japanese Lantern Themed Nursery September 23 2009

[caption id="attachment_770" align="aligncenter" width="435" caption="Japanese Lanterns for a Unique Themed Nursery"]Japanese Lanterns for a Unique Themed Nursery[/caption] We love unique decorating ideas, particularly when it comes to our kids' rooms.  If you are not into the extremely popular safari themed nursery or the princess themed nursery, consider decorating with Japanese lanterns.  We love the playfulness paper lanterns can bring to a baby's room and your neighbor is not likely to have a Japanese lantern themed nursery. The round bubbles of the paper lanterns add softness just right for a nursery or kid's room.  Yet, they have a structure that helps the room look pulled together for those modern, clean lines we love.  Hang them from the ceiling or the wall to create a wall mobile.  And, shop around as they come in many great colors.  We found these at Nursery Decor Land for $12.95 each.  They come in the perfect colors for decorating a girl's room such as pale pink, white, orange, and grass green. Consider decorating with other polka-dot decor items such as baby bedding, nursery rugs, and curtains.  A Japanese lantern themed nursery is sure to bring a smile to you and your little one.  Just be sure to keep them away from little fingers. And the cat. See our other unique baby room theme recommendations for more inspiring design ideas.
