This photo shows the room as the previous owners had it (purple was a theme throughout the house):
This shows the room as it existed for the first year and half that we lived here (sad, I know):
The nursery was really a labor of love. I worked on it for several months - staying up late every night sewing the window shades, bedskirt, pillows, changing pad covers, boppy covers, diaper caddy liner, ottoman (pouf), and bunting (flag decorations), making the memo board, framed butterfly art, painting the bookcase, and surfing the web for the finishing touches. As much as I tried to work with the neutral off-white backdrop, I just knew I wouldn't be happy with it... so, my husband was kind enough to humor a pregnant lady and paint the room a pretty aqua color. I'm so glad he did!
At the time I did this room, I hadn't seen many (or perhaps any) nurseries done in this color scheme - but, it seems to be a popular color combo these days - and I always enjoy seeing how other people have worked with these great colors. Some lovely examples:

One of my close friends also decorated her little girl's room with orange and aqua - I can't wait to see it (and blog about it)!
