A Project For
For me, the nursery was something that I spent a great deal of time planning in my mind. I had saved ideas for years and once we found out we were pregnant, it was one of the things I was most excited to start. We knew we had definite ideas for a boy or girl nursery and since we are having a little boy, the nursery has been decorated in a way which we felt said "boy".
It's been hard for us to describe the nursery under a specific theme. We really felt that the nursery was a collection of things we loved, things that represented us, and things that we hoped the baby would enjoy now...or eventually :) We stuck to a neutral/calming colour palette and included rustic elements.
There are a lot of elements to the nursery that we created or made ourselves, which may be why it took us so long to put together. We love how the nursery has turned out. It may not be the typical nursery, but for us its perfect and we love it.
We chose to focus on texture as well. Metals, woods, soft fabrics were all used to add interest to the space.
We share all of the details on our blog here.
Elements that we had collected over time, magazine and online inspiration, and truly our own personal style.
Truly a blend of traditional mixed with contemporary elements. I love fresh, clean looks without a lot of clutter. Spaces that truly speak for themselves.
We DIY'd as much as we could :)

My favorite items in the room have to be the vintage letters spelling out the baby's initials above the crib and the shelves my husband made. They add a perfect rustic feel and I love that we made them ourselves.
