Design Reveal: Mason’s Blue Oasis



I just love today’s featured nursery. It’s high style on a smart budget! Tacoma, Washington mother Adrienne wanted to achieve the look and feel of a Serena & Lily designed nursery but was determined to do it for less. By tackling a few DIY projects with the help from her mother and her keen eye for stylish finds, the finished nursery is beautiful, fresh and a family affair. Two month-old Mason will be enjoying his fabulous blue walls, splashes of orange and touches of modern for many years to come. Here are all the details on Mason’s Blue Oasis.

What was your inspiration for the room?
We knew we were having a boy, but didn’t want to go with typical boy colors or any specific theme. I loved the modern elements of the Binth alphabet poster and the great orange color. Serena & Lily’s ‘Ben’ collection was also a great inspiration, but out of our price range



What best describes your decorating style?
I like to stick to neutral then add in some eclectic, antique or even modern elements. Before this room, I always stuck to neutrals and more soothing colors so this was an adventure for me!



Please share with us choice of paint colors, furniture, art, DIY tips, etc.
My mom recovered the rocker she used with my little brother and repainted it. The pillow and stool are covered in Heather Ross seahorse fabric from etsy shop Fabric Worm.

The vinyl decals are also from etsy. They were great because you can customize which color you wanted the birds and the bird cages. Rug is Dwell Studio from Target .

Amy Coe Westport crib from Babies R Us. My mom also sewed the curtains in front of the closet and the valance (I added the orange ribbon with iron-on transfer cause I can’t sew … yet).

Expedit bookcase from Ikea

Ikea Hemnes changing table without the changing topper. The topper didn’t fit in the room so we’re going to make this work for now. We added the basket on the side with those 3M hooks that don’t leave behind residue.

Binth alphabet poster.

DwellStudio from Target “Circles & Rings” crib set.

Paint: Benjamin Moore “Blue Spa”

What is your favorite item(s) in the room?
Besides baby Mason? =) I love the rug; it’s probably my favorite. And I adore the silhouette of my husband Matt, taken when he was two. But I also totally love the seahorse fabric on the foot stool and pillow. Tough choice …

Is there anything else you would like PN readers to know?
This nursery wouldn’t be what it is without my mom! She did all the painting, recovered and painted the rocker, sewed the curtains, and contributed the rocking horse, wagon and so much else. So glad to have her!

I am so inspired by your room! I too looove Serena & Lily rooms but they are too expensive for me. It is so amazing that you really kept the "feel" of the original room. How did you go about translating their Ben room into yours? I love the Wren collection and the Natasha collection and I am trying to recreate it in my daughter's room.
