I have been participating in the Mood Board Monday party for awhile now and I really think some of the rest of you have got to get on this train with us!
This party only happens once a month or so, but it lets you be super fun and creative.  At our last party - one of the inspiration pieces was from West Elm and they really dug all of the great ideas that came out of our little party!  They are hosting the party this month with Sarah @ Pewter + Sage and there are two $50 gift cards up for grabs!  As our inspiration pieces we are using items from West Elm's new collaboration with Patch NYC.

We could choose from the following three groups - either the whole collection or mix and match.



Well they are all fantastic - but as I was looking at each collection and trying to get inspired the turtle print just jumped out at me as something playful and super modern for a nursery.  So here is my Mood Board for this time around - a playful hip nursery! Seriously - those prints are PERFECT for a nursery! And I love the wall color they had with them - so that stays! 





Now West Elm doesn't do any "kids or nursery" furniture (which I think they should look into) so I went around to some of my other frugal haunts to see what I could come up with to complete the set.  I wanted to go with a dark ebony crib and dresser/changing table set to ground the room.  The set I chose has a distinct curve to them that I think plays off the curves in the prints.  I tried to continue that theme with the rest of the items I picked out in the room.  The bedding has intricate cut out circles. The rug has the same curvy lines and great gray color that is in the prints.  And then the final icing on the cake is the fantastic cut out drum chandi - it is perfect! 

Here is a list of all the items I chose so you can track them down if you have fallen in love with them! Starting from the top right we have

Patch NYC Prints - Dove, Turtle, and Butterfly from West Elm - $29.00
Monaco Window Valance from Babies R Us - $19.99 
Twill Cordless Roman Shade from Target - $89.98
Monaco 4 piece Crib Bedding Set from Babies R Us - $144.49
Storkcraft Aspen Combo 3 Drawer Dresser from Walmart - $217.54
Storkcraft Aspen Convertible Crib from Walmart - $294.54
Monaco 3 Piece Storage Bin Set from Babies R Us - $36.99
Large Wicker Hamper from Walmart - $29.98
Lullaby Glider Rocker from Target - $499.99
Gray/Ivory Contemporary Rug from Walmart - $145.00
Metal Web Chandelier from Overstock.com - $65.99

So that is my set!  Which item would you or did you choose and where would you use it?  And for the love of everything good and decent - get your rears over to Sarah's and link up your own Mood Board!

I used the same prints and also did a nursery! I don't think that's too much of a coincidence, though, because like you said, the prints are perfect for a nursery. My mood board ended up being very girly and glamorous with purples, pinks, greens, yellows, and whites. I really like yours, too!

Love it! I really like that rug you found, the pattern is so classic. I love the yellow/gray combination too. It's contemporary without being too "old" for an infant.

Hey, Jess! So glad you joined in again...and thanks for promoting MBM:) This nursery is so cool! I've had nursery on the brain for a bit now, since we're just starting on ours (20 weeks along with our first)...this is giving me some great ideas. I love your subtle theme of curves and circles. I've had my eye on a rug like that for awhile...What? They have it at Walmart?! Sweet! Great color palette - makes the room not feel too babyish, which is right up my alley. Awesome job!

A very sophisticated looking nursery with that unexpected color palette. The crib is such a strong and beautiful piece - and from Walmart?! Wow. The lamp looks amazing and timeless.

So cute! I can't believe that rug is from Walmart. What an awesome find. I honestly thought it was Pottery Barn at first. Nice work!

Great rug. Walmart, wow. The light fixture is cool. I like the black to ground the airyness of the yellow and gray.
