Although baby boy hasn’t arrived yet I am so excited to share his nursery reveal. This nursery was truly a labor of love, I spent weeks planning for it and picking everything out then hubby spent weeks putting it together. I know the nursery doesn’t get used much in the early days but to be honest I find myself going in there even now just for some peace and quite and it’s literally become my favorite room in the house.
So with the nursery I didn’t have a specific theme in mind, I just knew I wanted a room that I would enjoy spending my time in and that would also be suitable for a baby boy. Aesthetics are important to me but having it be practical and functional were just as important. So after finding out I was pregnant I would be browsing Instagram & Pinterest for hours to draw inspiration from and it got so overwhelming especially for someone so indecisive like me lol! But I kind of always knew I wanted to stick to a neutral theme with some pops of color so I did just that!
One thing I did know for sure was that i wanted a feature wall and that it would be wallpaper instead of paint. i wanted the wall to be colorful and playful yet subtle at the same time. I searched forever but couldn’t make up my mind then one day I came across this wallpaper on someone else’s Instagram page and instantly knew it was the one! The wallpaper I got is from Annet Weelink Designs and she specializes in beautiful handmade prints. I loved the jungle theme and the palm trees. (Not sure If if it counts as something ‘subtle’ lol but I love that it has a lot of white in it and the colors are tonal which really helps). I also knew I wanted clean touches of wood to mimic the rest of our house and thats where the furniture comes in.
His crib and change table are from BuyBuy Baby from a brand called Baby Letto, I came across the crib last year before even getting pregnant and since then I had my eye on this specific style. It also comes in different colors which is great if you aren’t into white and wood. The one I have is linked here.
I really loved canopies as a kid and so I knew i had to have one in the nursery too. I think it’s a great touch and adds a lot of coziness and warmth to the room especially since we opted for shutters vs curtains. The canopy is from Etsy from a store called Babo Tipi.
The Tassel chandelier is my most prized possession. For weeks I was obsessing over this chandelier because I didn’t want any other light fixture for the room but that. I found some online but they were all very expensive so I decided I should just make one myself. I wanted to add a DIY personal touch to the room anyways, something mommy can be proud of and so this would be the perfect project and it kept me busy so it was a win win. P.S I also ended up making the rainbow piece as well:)
I originally wanted a really comfortable glider/rocker but anything I found was pretty bulky and I couldn’t make it work in the small space I was working with so I went for a smaller manual rocker (purchased on Marketplace second hand). Hopefully its comfortable enough for me to use for nursing, time will tell!
Finally I knew I had to add a rug in to tie everything together and so I went with something textured and light in color to keep the space open and bright. The rug is from RUGS USA.
