A Project For

Baby T


Due September 13th, 2012


Charlotte, NC


After designing my daughter's nursery, I knew I wanted to create an equally fun and eclectic space for our son. Like before, this was a labor of love...From picking out the design elements to installing a stone wall! It's a mix of DIY and store bought. A little kingdom for our little prince :)

Design Inspiration

The theme in my head was all over the place, but I definitely had a vision. It included exploration, animals, study, royalty, travel, and plenty of whimsy. With a masculine touch. Make sense?

Decorating Style

Colorful, pattern, texture, lots of little details!

The airstone wall is a PROJECT, so just be ready to tackle it. It's easy, but time consuming.

If you don't like matchy-match crib bedding, create your own!I bought different kinds of sheets, pillows, a throw, and made the crib skirt.

Don't be afraid to mix pattern, colors, textures. Experiment even if it seems crazy! Be bold.

Add personal touches - family memorabilia, photos from travel, etc. This will make it even more special.



  1. 1

    Ohmigosh I LOVE this! I love the stone wall treatment, and the gray. I love that you have color, but it’s subtle and not too “babyish”. This is a stunning room!

  2. 2

    Love this nursery .. Where is the London telephone booth frame from?

  3. 3

    Love this room & I just happened to stumble across it right as I am decorating my son’s big boy room which is somewhat jungle/travel themed. Wish I had a Garden Ridge near me because I love those burlap animals and do you remember where you got the stuffed elephant in the crib? Beautiful work!

  4. 4

    Love that rocking sheep! Where is it from?

  5. 5

    this room is really eclectic and cool. love the stone wall– makes the room so interesting!

    The lamb rocker was listed under the project details — it was from the Pottery Barn Outlet.

  7. 7
  8. 8

    It’s also from World Market – but it was the last one I saw in store! Maybe online?

  9. 9

    The elephant in the crib was a handmade gift from a friend – otherwise I would link :( It’s super cute! The burlap animals were SUCH a good find – and only $20. Amazing!

  10. 10

    Yep! Not sure if they ever sold it in the real PB stores?

  12. 12

    What color AirStone did you use?

  13. 13

    how did you hang things from the stone wall?

  14. 14
