The inspiration for our cute baby bunny nursery theme is the homemade crib quilt that you see in the picture. We said from the very start when we learned that we were expecting that we didn't want a traditional pink or blue pastel nursery but we really didn't have any ideas as to how to get around it since most of the baby bedding sets that we liked had a color scheme based on one or the other.

We still hadn't made a decision when I was in the last few months of my pregnancy and people were asking what color the baby's room was.

I finally got the inspiration I needed when one of the gifts I received at my baby shower was a bunny baby quilt with a pattern of baby blue, yellow and green bunnies appliqued on the top with a blue and green border. I knew that I had to find a way to put it on display and that I needed neutral wall paint and bedding.

I felt that the crib quilt would look really cool used as a wall hanging so that all the details would be visible rather than folding it to lie on the rails of the bed.

Choosing a Color Combination for Our Cute Baby Bunny Nursery

Once I made the decision to use the baby quilt as wall décor I had to figure out which neutral would work best as a background. Since the bunny appliques are so colorful we decided to paint the nursery walls a soft, dove gray with a white chair rail and crown molding.

We then painted polka dots in varying sizes on the walls in a dark brown color that matches the dark wood of the baby's crib and white ones to reflect the color that we painted the wooden molding.

DIY Wooden Wall Letters

The baby's wall letters that spell our daughter's name are hung with dark brown ribbons that are similar in color to the polka dots that we painted on the nursery wall.

Finding the Perfect Bunny Crib Bedding Set

There were no bunny baby bedding sets that worked with our plans so we got a set that had a touch of lime green to pick up the green from the bunny quilt.

Bunny Baby Mobile

We found a crib mobile with bunny rabbits in colors that closely duplicated the appliques on the crib quilt.

All in all, I think that we were successful in our goal to create a room worthy of the hours of work that went into making the baby quilt. We feel that holding out until we knew exactly what we wanted helped us to decorate the cute bunny baby nursery that you see in the picture. If there is one bit of advice that I would share with Unique Baby Gear Ideas it would be not to settle and to find a way to decorate the room so that you will be happy with the way it looks and enjoy spending time there.
