I already have two daughters and when I found out I was having a son I knew I wanted a nursery that was theme-less yet masculine and that would flow with the rest of our home. I was fortunate enough to find a couple of wonderful artists who helped me by creating a bed crown (that I now want our room!) and the bedding. I knew I wanted Navy and green, then it was just a matter of finding the right pieces to fit it all together.
I started with the green damask fabric and the navy and white furniture. I had seen bed crowns before and knew I wanted one, so that was the starting point.
I wanted something simple yet bold.
I was able to use a mix of custom pieces and more budget friendly items. Some of the custom pieces are: The bedding and changing pad cover were made by Polka Tot Designs (www.polkatotdesigns.com). The bed crown was made by Classic Cottage (www.classiccottage.net). The silhouette prints were made by Nella Designs ( www.nelladesigns.bigcartel.com) The navy furniture and "open All Night" clock is from Land of Nod. The drapery and valances and hardware as well as the frames for the prints are from Target. I actually won the "Wacky Barn" print in one of the weekly PN giveaways that was created by Fern Tree Studio (http://www.etsy.com/shop/FerntreeStudio)
Since the bedding and bed crown are what initially started off the design I am partial to them. However, I love the family silhouette prints. I also really like the baby shoes hanging under the 1, 2 Buckle My Shoe print over the changing table.
Start with a color, piece of fabric or piece of art and build around it. After that it took a few months of finding just the right pieces as I layered the room together.
