I knew I wanted a modern nursery for my little boy. The room had recently been painted grey, so we kept it that way. The crib and dresser were easy to decide on. I had tons of nursery prints in my Etsy favorites and other decorating ideas on my Pinterest boards. I was stuck on bedding for a long time. I spent so much time searching the web for something that would match the grey walls and curtains, and really couldn't find anything I loved. My mom offered to sew the bedding. It was a long process, but I spent tons of quality time with my mom and grandma, and learned how to sew too! My other labor of love was the tshirt latch hook rug. I put many hours of work into my rug and I'm so proud to have finished it for my little man. The chair is a thrift store find that matched the room perfectly and added the softness it needed. I just love how everything turned out.
The inspiration came from the main fabric of the room, the 2D Zoo animal fabric. From there, the coordinating fabrics were picked and the artwork was customized to match the colors.

The custom bedding set is my favorite part of the room. Every fabric item in Braxton's room is homemade by my mom or I. I love that no other baby in the world will have a nursery like his.
