In the Nursery with Ashlee Nichols

We are excited to share this beauty with you today. You are going to love little Brexton’s nursery, and you are going to love his mama Ashlee Nichols, of Little Lovelies. We may be a little biased because so many items from The Project Nursery Shop can be spotted in this nursery, including those Bright Eyed, Bushy Tailed Signs, which—wow, look so great in this nursery, but we think you are going to love everything about this space. We are falling hard for the black and white + natural (think wood, plants and leather) color palette. Thank you, Ashlee, for taking time out of your busy new life as a mom of three and sharing this lovely space with us!

Where did you pull inspiration for your nursery design?
We planned for a gender surprise at birth, but ended up finding out we were having a boy early in the third trimester. The inspiration came from a gender neutral theme, but with masculine touches with the leather and wood once we learned he was a boy!

What part of the design process did you enjoy the most?
All of it! It was my first time designing a boy’s nursery, so I had so much fun adding the neutral but masculine touches that created the space.

What is your favorite part or detail in your nursery?
I think most people’s first reaction is the buffalo plaid wall, but I really love the nursing rocker in the corner with the Project Nursery prints and faux fiddle leaf fig. It’s my favorite little corner.

What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project?
Screenshot or take images from nurseries that you love and create an image board (on pinterest or your phone). Then take pieces from each thing that you love while making it your own. I also love to add in meaningful things like the wooden rainbow puzzle (Brexton is our rainbow baby after a loss), and initials like the leather pillow. It’s the little touches that make a room feel special!
