A Project For



Due late April 2013


Chelsea, Michigan


Nursery for our little boy Henrik who's due in April.

Design Inspiration

All over the place!  I was scouting ideas for a long time to get inspiration.

Decorating Style

We were aiming for less babyish and more sophisticated while still obviously being a baby's room.

Project Details

Painted both of the dressers starting with stain block primer

Favorite Items

The plush giraffe and the Katie Daisy art are some of my favorites.  I loved the idea of incorporating Michigan (where we live) and New York (where my parents live) in art for the room.


I think picking a solid color that pulls things together and looks sophisticated really gives it a more polished look.  In our case that was the navy but I think you have plenty of options.


  1. 1

    I love it. It’s definitely a room he can grow into and be proud of. Good job!
