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!

  3. Public school teachers in the province continued to show their reservations against the policies of the Punjab government also. The demands of these teachers remained the same as no action to alleviate the matter was taken by the government.
