A modern nursery that my son can grow into.

Design Inspiration

I always knew I didn't want a "baby" theme for my son's nursery so when I came across the artwork, I instantly fell in love with it. It is handwoven from recycled newspapers and painted canvases. The colors and scale were perfect and everything just fell into place after that. 

Decorating Style

I like mixing different styles.  I like my spaces to be functional.  I think window treatments can make a room.

I love polka dot rug.  It makes the room come alive! 


Make sure your space doesn't just look great but it is functional too.   Don't be afraid to use color!  Select pieces that your baby can grow into.

    I’m doing the same color scheme for my son’s nursery. I love how yours turned out! Where did you get the table lamp?

    As I commented on FB, so cute it makes my knees itch! I have actually been worried about having a boy, lol, for fear the decorating options are too drab & uninspiring! Not anymore- this is fab and really shows how creative you can still be, even w/a boy theme (sans the ribbons & frills I so love! :). Candy

    This room is AMAZING! Even my Fiance said, “That is cool!” and what man gets excited about a nursery?

    It’s so fun and modern and I agree with not favoring “baby” type spaces. And the rug is to DIE for.

    Where did you get the little elephant on the dresser and the curtains?

    Hi Kelly,

    The elephant was a gift from a good friend that found my wedding pattern fabric and had the elephant made. I know that she used someone on Etsy.

    I am looking at purchasing the same furniture you did from the Young America collection. What color combination is yours? (color of paint/wood). Did you custom select the colors or pick a preselected color that they offered?

    I am a big fan of turquoise! That artwork above the crib looks really interesting. What’s it made of? I can’t quite figure it out.
