Minimal touches of sage and butter yellow turn this nursery into a calming space

This room oozes serenity and calm for both parent and child. Outside of painting the walls in a muted sage and yellow, the two focal points -- a canopy and a painted rug -- make this room stand out from your average nursery. The canopy is a dreamy little number that can be used first as a crib or playpen cover and later as a canopy for a twin bed. In praise of painted rugs: They offer a smooth surface for wheeling around toy vehicles, they never bunch up and trip tiny feet, they stay right where you put them and they're a breeze to wash. Best of all, you can create them in glorious splashes of color.
