  • Debbie Raley

    I simply love those curtains! I want to make some just like it for my living room!

  • Alissa Raley

    I love everything about his room! Its so inviting, I would love to play/sleep in there! Your eye for design is something to envy! ;)

  • RLT

    Love the paint color, do you know what the name is?

  • apenrose



    The color is City Storm by Valspar.

  • Barb

    Beautiful…. looks professionally done.

  • Katie Gonzalez

    Love love the room! So neat for a boy. I am curious as to how you came up with his name? I listen to a band name Copeland, does it have anything to do with them? :) His name is very unique, I love it.

  • Lisa Ratzlaff

    The room is inviting, a unique combination of old and new. Gives a feeling that Copeland is surrounded by a type of love that is passed from generation to generation, just like the family items featured in the room. Lucky Copeland–I get the feeling he has amazing parents…and amazing grandparents too!

    Great job! I love the color and I love that this is a room that the baby can grow into without having to change too much.

  • Ashley

    This is one of the best nurseries I have seen on Project Nursery in a long time! I absolutely love it! It is so creative and perfect for a little boy. I love the chalkboard paint behind the crib, and the frames on it are too cute! We live in an apartment, and can’t paint, but if we could I totally would have done something similar. There isn’t one thing I don’t like. Great job!

    Katie Gonzalez,

    Hi Katie,

    Yes, actually. My husband and I are both musicians, and we love the band “Copeland”. We’d also heard it as a name for a boy years ago, and my husband really liked it. Thank you!

  • apenrose

    Thank you for your kind comments! We loved putting his room together! It was sort of like an art project for me, so I appreciate the great feedback!

  • Jaime

    I love this room!!!! Can you tell me about the rug? I’ve been looking for a chevron rug for a while.

  • Ashley@marriedlane


    I’m also interested In the rug – love the chevron!

  • Tiffany

    I love the rug too! I ordered a similar one from Urban Outfitters- but it was a rougher material (semi-jute I think?), and had a funky smell! Would love to know where this is from?

  • apenrose

    Jaime, Ashley, Tiffany:

    I ordered the rug here:

    The only complaint I have with it is that it is not as soft as I would like. The positive thing about that, though, is that it is hardy. He can play all over it and it doesn’t show any wear. A softer rug might show wear faster.

  • Jessica

    Love this! Would you mind telling me where the balls are from over the crib? Also, my husband is a DJ and I would love to replicate that picture with the headphones. What camera did you use? Is it just black and white? Thanks!

  • Carol

    Love the chalkboard wall :) Also love the idea of mixing new with vintage…I had the same idea :) Nicely done, great colors!!

  • Ashley

    Love the room! I just painted my son’s room a similair color (though I think I like this one more) and built the book shelf ledges using’s $10 ledges tutorial

  • apenrose


    Hi Jessica!

    I made the yarn balls using this tutorial:

    And the picture was just a poster my husband had that we framed – it’s not a picture of my little boy, although I will probably re-create it with him as the subject at some point!

  • Annetta Hindman

  • Erin Austin

    How did you hang the yarn/string balls? Did you use yarn or a kind of string?

  • Geri

    I have done the same. It is also more tan and black rather than black and white.
