Dr. Seuss Inspired Travel Themed Nursery

Everyone loves “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss, and for photographer Kristine Neely, it was the perfect inspiration for the nursery of her little one on the way. From the book came the essential design elements, like the vibrant and airy colors, themes of possibility, dreaming and succeeding, and images of travel and adventure. Kristine wanted the space to inspire her little girl to dream. Pinterest helped her get her thoughts and ideas organized, and you can check out the board here: http://pinterest.com/kristineneeley/oh-virginia-the-places-you-ll-go-the-nursery/.
