Cribspiration: Radiant Orchid

We are so inspired by Radiant Orchid, the bright shade of purple named Pantone’s color of the year for 2014. Here is some inspiration for mixing and matching sweet and modern styles for your baby girl’s nursery. Start with a neutral wall (we love the striped one below!) and add in accents of pastels and gold with pops of this bright purple.

Cribspiration: Sophisticated Safari

We love the idea of a sophisticated, yet sassy safari-themed nursery. Blending bold patterns and lots of texture with neutral grey & beige, soft pinks, and pops of red, gives a bold twist on a classic nursery theme. Here’s the inspiration(links below):

crib / rocking chair / sofa / storage bin / storage shelves/

curtains / zebra art / rug / plush zebra

Cribspiration: Pop of Color

Today’s cribspiration comes from paper pom poms. At Baby Aspen, we use paper pom poms for nearly every celebration and shower to enhance the theme and bring a pop of color to our conference party room. Paper pom poms are a great way to add a pop of color to a nursery too! Making them is a cheap and easy DIY project that makes a big impact. You can re-purpose your party decorations from shower decor to nursery decor. They are also a great way to add a color statement to a gender-neutral room once the baby is born.

Here are the step-by-step instructions from Martha Stewart:
