A Project For



2 months




I wanted to do something suitable for a little boy without being too "babyish". I thought a vintage railroad theme would be PERFECT because it can transition well into a toddler room. Besides, what little boy doesn't love trains?!? 

Design Inspiration

I saw a design board for a vintage railroad themed nursery and I thought it was SO cute! I took the idea and ran with it making it my own, of course. I didn't want to overdue the railroad theme, so I tried to incorporate little bits here and there through the artwork, prints, color scheme, and the dresser. 

Decorating Style

I love mixing old with new.

Project Details

1.   Crib- venetian crib in distressed white (

My favorite item is the custom bedding and crib. It turned out beautiful! I also love the chevron dresser- so unique!

    Thank you! As a first time mommy I didn’t even know where to start in designing a baby’s room (ESP a baby BOY), but I love the way it turned out! I appreciate all the remarks.

    On the river rock looking part – is that the really soft light grey quilt you’re talking of? I’ve looked over premier prints and don’t see that fabric, but would be interested to know what it is and where I can find it! GORGEOUS room…love it all!
