Age

Description

Owen's nursery is a mix of vintage and modern pieces. We incorporated as many meaningful items into the space as possible.  His father and I had a great time putting together the room.  (I did the planning, he did the work! ha) Not really,  Momma helped as much as she could too. Many DIY projects were completed to add a special touch to the space, including converting an IKEA chair into a rocker/glider, DIY shelves, embroidered artwork, DIY curtains, and a few other projects. 

Design Inspiration

Blogs such as Holly Mathis Interiors, Jones Design Company, and Honey and Fitz.  

Decorating Style

Vintage, modern with a touch of rustic elements

Advice

Go with what you love and make it a personal space. You spend so much time in the nursery you really want to love it. Also I was reluctant about adding a twin bed to the nursery but am so glad we did. It not only gives us an extra bed for company, but it also serves as a great place for Mom or Dad to relax while the other is rocking the baby.

    You did a great job on Owens room and he is so adorable. I love the fabric that you used on the curtains and the crib bedding. It looks like linen! It also has that RHB look. This is a room that can grow with him and I really like the vintage items.
    Mimi did a great job on the curtains and bedding! Good luck with your bouncing baby boy!

    Kelly,

    Thank you so much Kelly! It was so fun to do. I wish I could give you a source for the map, but it was actually given to my husband by his Grandmother who has passed away. So no help there, but we think it was an old map from a classroom possibly. Maybe a search for that will come up with something? Good luck!!

    Tara,

    I wish I could tell you for sure, but ours was given to us by my hubby’s Grandmother. We think it is an old map from a school. Sorry, can’t help you more!
