We live in a small house just outside of Washington, DC. Since our space for the nursery is small, we had to make use of every nook and cranny! We wanted a room that was masculine yet not too "babyish". We went for warm, neutral colors and used a blue/green and brick red as the accent colors. It is a blend of contemporary and traditional. This is our favorite room in the house!

Design Inspiration

I found a carpet I liked (through Flor) and everything else sort of fell into place.  

Decorating Style

contemporary, traditional

Project Details

Furniture was purchased from Walmart and JC Penney.  Carpet from Flor.  Rocking chair/recliner from Lazy Boy.  

Favorite Items

The rocking chair is so comfortable, but my favorite items are the hanging initials that I made as well as the mobile that I made to hang over the baby's bed.  


Keep looking at other nurseries and rooms until you find something that sparks your interest and then go from there!

    My husband was looking over my shoulder as I went through this room, and he quipped, why couldn’t you make my study like that :)  He loves it, and I love it as well. Good choice of pieces here, and it’s very very lovely!

    This room looks like something that Henry could grow into well into his teenage years.  I love the mobile that you made… very chaotic but still very eye-catching.
