You've probably done some traveling - even if it's not across the country or across the globe - you've ventured out of your hometown and have fond memories of certain trips. Or maybe a certain town captured your heart. It might even just be taking pride in your own city or state.
A fun way to personalize a nursery is to include artwork, prints, or photos from your travels that hold special memories.
I know I've mentioned it on the blog before, but I love New York. I love the quick pace, the high energy, the sights, the sounds - everything. I don't get up there nearly enough.
Look at all of the fun colors you could pull from this print...
I took both of these photos at the Atlantis about 5 years ago - both of these would be a nice addition to a nursery with the right frame.
Can you tell I like to think outside the box? I love the way the green netting pops against the sand and the lifeguard stand and how it's hanging effortlessly.
And the pop of pink and green in the tropical flowers below would be so pretty in a little girls room.
I'm thinking color palettes and using a piece of art or a photo to create a color palette, but also making the room personal.
I lucked out this weekend and got this national park poster calendar for $7.00 at Barnes & Noble on clearance. How about some emerald green in a little boys room?
Or some pink and purple in a girls room...
The other great thing about travel posters or photos is that hopefully they have some longevity in a youngster's room.
What are your thoughts on adding this type of element into a nursery?
