Designing a nursery is not something I've been asked to do often, although I love the idea of creating a space that welcomes a new little person into the world. For my own children, I went the traditional pink and blue route because there weren't many other choices at that time. Nowadays, there are many new color combinations, as well as crib and furniture styles making the design options for nurseries endless. 

It was such a fun surprise to receive a set of wooden blocks from the company Uncle Goose. They make traditional old-school style alphabet blocks with a modern twist.


I started playing around with them because they have cool patterns on one side.


And fun fonts and icons on the others.


Then I starting thinking about designing a baby's bedroom around the colors in the blocks because as it turns out, army green, orange and black are great together!

Here's the nursery I came up with…
