Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Hudson's Bright and Bold Nursery

Hudson's Bright Nursery

Photographer Ariel Renae designed a bright and bold nursery space for her baby boy, Hudson, who is three weeks old in these sweet photos. Ariel opted for a vibrant color palette of turquoise, orange, and yellow to bring in the fun and playfulness, but mixed in several neutrals (white, tan, gray) to add an element of calm and peace to the space. In looking for decor for the room, Ariel had a hard time finding what she wanted. So of course the DIY route was the perfect solution. She designed all of the wall prints, and the bedding was handmade by a family friend with fabric Ariel found at a local hobby store. Using the DIY approach, she saved on costs, but also created a space that fit her vision. We also couldn't resist sharing some of these adorable newborn and family shots! See all of the photos in the full gallery.
