The pictures above don't show the personal touches we've made since Graham arrived. We added gifts and sentimental items, including a Tiffany & Co. silver rattle, picture frames and a honey colored train Graham affectionately calls his "choochoo." I had also planned to add a horizontal stripe to the wall (or possibly even white letters with a touching quote) hitting slightly above all of the furniture, but haven't found the time -- note to Mamas to finish as much as possible before your baby arrives!
I love the honey colored basket, train and vintage children's books as a warm contrast to the blue, green and white. I was worried that there might be too many elephants and wanted to avoid creating a Pottery Barn Kids replica, but I think the accents are different enough to pull the room together. I hope to have shown that you can select mass-produced staples, and add your own personal touches to create a distinct nursery that's still warm and inviting.
