A Project For
This is the beginning stages of my gray chevrons stripe nursery for my baby Henry. I love the look of the chevron stripe, but the chevron also reflects my grandfather who owned a Chevron Oil Gas Station starting in the 1950s. I have the old chevron toy trucks that were given as promotions years ago surrounding the Henry letters I have hanging. I plan to add more personal touches with pictures soon. The pegboard with the clothes hanging is a pegboard that was given to my mother when I was born. My mom said that she always displayed my favorite clothes on that pegboard so now I display my favorite clothes of Henry's on the pegboard. It's another way to enjoy his clothes since I love dressing him so much too!
I wanted something classic and comfortable. I wanted the nursery to reflect a baby boy, yet be original and not some cookie-cutter I'll go buy all the accessories around the crib sheets nursery. I didn't want a "theme" that many have. I wanted something that could grow with Henry.
I like classic looks with a twist of interest. I like to mix patterns against neutral backdrops or use bright pops of color.
I found the chevron rug from Urban Outfitters. I found the ottoman, the lamp, and all the storage containers at Home Goods and TJ Maxx. The glider was bought at Haverty's. The side table was an old sewing table my mother had and we spray painted it gray. The light fixture was bought at Lowes. The chevron crib sheets were bought at Pottery Barn Kids. I ordered the dog prints with chevron backgrounds and chevron print changing pad cover from Etsy. The chevron pattern laundry container was given to me by a close family friend and was found at Burlington. My sister made the mobile handing over the chair using different ribbons and patterns that she cut in circle shapes and dog shapes. We installed the laminate flooring from Lowes and the paint was Valspar MOUNTAIN PASS from Lowes.
I think the light fixture gives the room a unique interest point (and when Henry was a tiny baby, he loved seeing how the light danced when I turned down the dimmer). Of course, I love anything with the chevron stripe, but the different pattern on the ottoman and storage containers make the room even more visually interesting. I love how the gray paint looks in the early morning hours especially. My sister's homemade mobile is close to my heart also.
