Collin’s Nursery

  • Cjko

    Congratulations. Very cute nursery. I was thinking of doing a birthday pillow for my little girl but had never seen one. Cute.

  • Tara

    Wow, this really is beautiful and Collin is a lucky boy who will love it

  • Recreate

    This is so nice! I think that big world map is very cool. Wish you added more bright colors, though.

  • Amy

    I love the crisp feeling it has. I think more color would have ruined the feeling . But your talking to a person who has white furniture and a white rug. With 2 little boys and a dog. That’s how much I love white.

    Love the freshness and crispness of this room. Alot of time people go one step too far in decorating baby rooms because its hard to stop when it comes to cuteness. It ends up alittle ciaotic for the eye. But less is always more. I can picture this room just as fresh in real life as in the picture(and that is just not always the case). Yet every inch of the room has a finished look. The colors are great together…don’t always have to have vibrant colors to make the room vibrant with colors:). What a cute boys room. Love that you didn’t do the “norm” or the safe thing here…payed off!

    Can you tell me how you hung the map?

  • suki_b

    I would love to know how you hung the map too. It’s beautiful!

  • Chrissy

    I absolutely LOVE the curtains & plan to do the same thing in my son’s room (due in June). I’ve looked online everywhere & can not find where to purchase them. Did you follow a pattern or find a tutorial online? Any help wouldd be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Chrissy……i bought white curtains and black fabric from ikea. I cut the black fabric in strips and sewed onto curtains. I am a beginner sewer but it wasn’t too hard…just took some time measuring, . pressing, and pinning. I found a couple of bloggers who have spray painted stripes on curtains that looked pretty good. I was going to try spray paint if my method hadn’t worked out. Good luck.

    P.s. The stripes are 6 inches apart.

    The map is from ikea and it comes with a frame that you stretch the canvas around… also comes with the hardware to hang on the wall.

    Hi Rachel,
    First of all- congratulations! Collin is such a lucky boy. Secondly- yours is the first nursery I’ve ever felt compelled to comment on. When I saw that map I thought to myself “that would be great for an adopted child to help understand his journey.” And then I read your bio and thought- that’s so thoughtful and creative. Kudos to you for making an original (not so cookie cutter) nursery. My favorite elements are the homemade curtains (I may have to copy that) and the Eames rocker. BTW I hope you don’t mind I pinned a photo on Pinterest for more people to swoon

  • Chrissy

    Thanks so much for your reply! Unfortunately Ikea does not ship the curtains and there isn’t one ANYWHERE near here. I found black curtains at Walmart that are excellent quality and I plan to add cream stripes to them. Thanks go all your help!

  • Rachel

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment Kristin. I would love to follow you on pinterest…can you send me a link to your boards?

    Hi Rachel,
    I came across your outstanding nursery on Pinterest and immediately fell in love with it. I quickly started looking for each item to replicate this look for my sons nursery. I was able to find all execpt that pastel navajo rug on World Market. Do you know if they discontinued? If so, do you know where I could possibly find a similiar one?
    Thank you so much!

  • Rachel


    Hi Marlene,

    I have had a lot of people ask me about the rug. I have tried tracking it down with no luck. Here are some other rugs that wold give you a similar look.

    i like this one…it would add some color in the room…..

    probably the most similar to mine is this one….

    this one is similar too

    this one would be amazing. you would have to try and find it though….and expensive.

    good luck!
