Blue, white and citrine yellow nursery for baby Matthew, due April 28

Design Inspiration

My maiden name is Byrd, so I tend to incorporate bird motifs in lots of my rooms. I found a beautiful bird fabric from Romo and started from there, incorporating other shades of blue, gray, white and citrine yellow.

Decorating Style

Transitional with lots of pops of color--I am a sucker for patterned pillows and accents! I wanted the nursery to be more unisex than boyish, but mostly wanted it to be comfortable, clean and colorful.

Project Details

Crib--hand me down from Duc Duc; Chest--local purchase; Day Bed--West Elm; Sheepskin Rug--Ikea; Fabrics--Kelly Werstler, ROMO and Kravet; Crib Bedding--Serena & Lily; Moroccan Pouf--Tazi Designs; Glider--Local purchase; Deer mobile--Etsy; Bird Art over crib--Anthropologie; Ikea frames

Favorite Items

The bunny painting, done for me by my mother; a pair of cowboy boots I wore for my first Halloween; and the handmade deer mobile from Etsy--my husband is a hunter so this is a nod to his hobby!


Start small--find a piece of artwork, textile or something else that inspires you and work from there. I started with 3 fabrics and built the rest around that. That helped me to not get overwhelmed with the amount of decisions that needed to be made to create a cohesive room!

    It won’t be long now until your baby boy enjoys his lovely room. The blue walls are great, and I love your mother’s painting of the oversized bunny. How appriopriate to have that motif in his room since his birthday will always be close to Easter. In the latest post for, I used a rabbit theme, but for a girl.  Had to do that. My birthday was last week and my nickname has always been Bunny.

    Love Charleston, too.

    Hi! What a beautiful room! Would you mind sharing the paint color you used? I’ve been trying to find a muted blue that still looks fresh, and I love the one you chose.

    The blue paint is Benjamin Moore Beach Glass–I love it and it would be appropriate in just about any room. I also loved Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray, which is a similar, soft gray-blue.

    Funny about all the bunnies–they just sort of started accumulating and I just found out 2011 is the year of the rabbit on the Chinese calendar!

    Very clean and crisp-looking room. I adore those art frames on the wall by the crib. And oh, your daybed looks really cozy and comfortable.

    Beautiful bird prints!  I’ve tried locating them on Anthropologie, but unfortunately, they are no longer there for purchase.
