A Golden Themed Nursery, Golden Retriever that Is

Today, I want to share the story behind one of my favorite projects—my son Noah’s Golden Retriever themed nursery, inspired by our beloved dog, Sadie. As a mom to two lively toddlers, I understand the art of balancing aesthetics with practicality for growing kiddos. Noah’s nursery became a labor of love, centered around a theme dear to our family’s heart.

When designing my own nursery, the inspiration really began with Sadie, our furry sidekick, who quickly became our first “baby” right after we said “I do.” Growing up with Goldens, my husband and I already had a soft spot for the breed, but Sadie took that love to a whole new level.

When it came time to dream up Noah’s nursery, a chance scroll on social media led me to this adorable Golden Retriever wallpaper that felt like it was made just for us. So, I took a detour and decided to base the whole nursery around our girl, Sadie.

Like all my designs, I started with a mood board. The Golden Retriever wallpaper quickly became the heart of the room, setting a playful yet timeless vibe. From there, I layered in all the cute “Golden” details.

The trickiest part? Designing a room based on my deep love for Sadie but not knowing if Noah would feel the same way about her. Well, turns out, I had nothing to worry about. When Noah came into the world, their bond blossomed, and now, they’re inseparable. Seeing that special connection between them warms my mama heart.

Designing a nursery isn’t just about making things look pretty; it’s about creating a story that feels right for your family. For us, it’s the tale of a Golden Retriever who stole our hearts, inspiring a room filled with love. Noah’s nursery is proof that when design meets emotion, something magical happens. I feel incredibly blessed to have crafted a space where my son and his furry friend can make memories that’ll last a lifetime.
