Nursery Design: Argyle and Houndstooth and Bears Oh MY!

Nursery #1 by Skårtshop Design is DONE! And I have pictures to prove it!

For a memory refresh This was the design sketch I did:

 and this is how Emmet's  room turned out:

Lesson learned here is that you don't have to be afraid of mixing patterns as long as you stick to a simple and soothing color palette.  The rug was the biggest struggle.  Even now Mommy isn't 100% convinced.  Luckily at this point she's got too much other stuff going on to fight me on it : )

Enjoy the rest of the pictures, thanks to Emmet for helping model some of the room features!
