When we found out we were having our second boy, I embraced the blues and grays and greens I was hesitant to use the first time. Somewhere along the way I noticed that all the accessories were animal or map related (or both in some instances!). 

Design Inspiration

My starting point was two rugs: Dash and Albert's Seaboard Stripe and Serena and Lily's Navy Deco rug.  I went with Deco rug, and brought in the Seaboard Stripe in the fabrics,from D&A's sister company.

I love the oversized blue pom trim that I added, and the no sew crib skirt that I made with my husband's help.  But Bennett loves the origami spheres - they sway with the fan, and are mesmerizing to him!

    Thanks so much!! The shelves are from Pottery Barn Kids, but I bought them a few years ago when I did our first nursery…

    Pottery Barn Kids – also a holdover from our first nursery so not sure if they are still available, although I have seen them on Ebay fairly recently. I just changed the shade this time :)

    I’m curious to know the color and maker of your gray paint. Thank you! Absolutely adorable nursery!
