    Pattern-Packed Room

    What's a baby to do when a traditional sugar-and-spice nursery, with pretty ruffles and little bows, just doesn't cut it? Boldly deck the space in hot pink, orange, and red, of course! A bright room like this accomplishes two purposes: It will be visually stimulating for the infant, and it will easily transition into a "big girl" room in a few years. All Mom will have to do is switch out the crib for a bed.

    Dots and Swirls

    Mixing patterns like these big dots, small dots, lots and lots of swirls is an easy way to make a style statement. Keep all the pillows, upholstered seats, and window treatments in the same color palette and unite with a common theme: dots of all sizes, here.

    Custom Furniture Details

    Creating your own custom furniture to match a room is fairly simple. Here, an orange border on each drawer and painted dots on top of the dresser match the room without being too matchy-matchy. The same principle was applied to the vintage mirror.

    Patterns and Prints, Oh My!

    Adding to the bold theme of this room, the chair-rocker was upholstered in a bold dot fabric that coordinates with the others in the room. Adding a touch of whimsy is an adorable floor lamp in the bold orange and white scheme.
