I had such a fun time designing my son's nursery through out my pregnancy. It came out exactly how I imagined it would

Design Inspiration

When I found out I was having a boy I knew I wanted to do something different than the average boy nursery.

Decorating Style

I love unique decorating. Anything victorian or antique really captures my attention.

Project Details

I was set on a chandelier whether it was a boy or girl. It was difficult to find one that wasn't too girly. I came across this faux chandelier from Urban Outfitters http://pinterest.com/pin/146226319121236417/ 

it was perfect for what I wanted and not as costly as other chandeliers!

My favortite DIY project was painting the stripes and polka-dots on the letters!

I bought an older changing table off of craigslist, the middle shelf was all stained so I just covered it with damask fabric and it was good as new and really added to the room. 

I also took an old basket and spray painted it and took damask pattern and light blue ribbon and glued it on the basket. Such a cute and easy way to make some storage to go with your theme and cheaper !

Favorite Items

It would have to be his chandelier.


The good thing about this damask design is it's versatile! I paired it with polka dots and stripes to make it more masculine and of course the baby blue. Making this look fit for a girl would be so easy and so much fun!

    Black, white and blue is not a color combination you see all the time. And damask pattern for a boy isn’t quite common, too. So kudos for thinking out of the box and coming up with a lovely room.
