Nursery Design Reveal!

The pressure to make this nursery something spectacular has been intense- mostly of my own doing, but also because it’s been such a long time coming and I want it to be beyond perfect! While I was long debating the bold versus serene vibe, I knew in my heart that I wanted something soothing but also with a modern edge. So I decided to really mix both traditional items with modern ones- buffalo plaid, scenic wallpaper, lucite, brass and streamlined furniture.  I am loving it, and I think when I’m trapped inside all winter with a newborn it will be such a peaceful place to relax with the baby.  And I know there are lots of people who will think this is impractical or not “bold” enough for the baby- but it’s basically where he will sleep and feed. The rest of my house in so black and white I think he’ll develop just fine. :) So here it is!

Nursery Inspiration: Serene or Bold?

So now that I am halfway through my pregnancy and beginning to feel the little lad move around I have to get down to designing my nursery. And it turns out, this project is my kryptonite.  I have two schemes going- one more bold and one serene. And I CAN. NOT. DECIDE.  Since it was so difficult for me to get pregnant, who knows if I will get to do another nursery again? And since it was such a long, highly anticipated journey I feel so much pressure to make it AMAZING. So it’s got me a little freaked out and incredibly indecisive. But let’s face it- this kid’s room will be redone a few times in his choldhood, so if I go more babyish and soothing for the nursery, I could always make it more bold when he’s 3 or so….right?? :)

So I gathered up a bunch of boy nurseries in both varieties to compare and contrast. Let’s start with the serene and soothing:

Simple, bright and lovely.

This nursery by Christine Dovey  is the definition of serene- I’ve posted about it before I love it so much.

Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed– it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

A killer gold leg trestle desk. So awesome.


There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!
