I chose to do surf theme/nautical because we have a house in cape cod and I want to take my son there and want him to like the water.
Rory’s nursery was actually a therapeutic experience for me to work on while my life seemed to be in complete disarray. My husband, in the midst of COVID, left his job for reasons that we knew needed to happen. It was the best choice for our family. However, of course, in the middle of a pandemic looked and felt a little crazy. Working on my son’s nursery as a creative outlet in our home while we literally couldn’t leave was a sweet and early bond from the womb to Rory as I dreamed up a space to bring him home to. The world felt crazy, our life felt crazy, but Rory’s room felt just right. Being pregnant through a pandemic was incredibly hard and, at times, isolating if I wasn’t careful. Rory’s room, as I assembled it and thought through every detail, felt sweet and reminded me of the important things in life.
As far as the design, I wanted something completely different than my other son’s room, which was an all white space with shiplap and Melissa & Doug safari animals. So I went for a deep blue with gold accents! The blue used for this accent wall is Inkwell by SW and Alabaster everywhere else. We have these colors throughout our home as bathroom vanities and doors. I love subtle pops of color in an all white home, so a blue door here or a dark blue vanity there is the perfect dose for me. The puppy prints are actually the starting inspiration for the entire room! I found them on Etsy and fell in love. They were as beautiful in person as I hoped they would be. I chose “dalmatian print” touches for the rug and the changing table to further the puppy theme. The Babyletto navy changing table matched the Inkwell wall perfectly, and then the neon sign over it was the final touch that made the room feel unique and entirely different than his brother’s. I intentionally chose to do a big bean bag rather than another rocker so that our toddler could be part of bedtime for his little brother. So far, it’s been exactly what we had hoped it would be. And, because it was Pottery Barn Teen, it actually is a great size for mom and dad. We have no trouble getting up and down with Rory in our arms. It’s very comfortable and I think I will be telling all moms to get a massive bean bag for late night feedings rather than a rocker from now on!
A little modern, a little classic- Rory’s puppy nursery turned out perfectly in my book. I hope you guys love it, too!

We wanted to create a space for our baby boy that was welcome and also a great place for us to hang out too. We wanted a very neutral palette so if we decide to have another child no matter what gender we can have the same design and style.
I am so excited to present our Modern Bear Woodland Nursery! This project is very special as it is for our second baby, this time a boy! I knew I wanted to use a deep dark navy blue, hunter green, gray and a touch of leather and wood. The jumping off point was definitely the large bear print and the idea of creating a warm cocoon like feeling to cuddle our newborn. I knew incorporating a large scale tree art print was also a must because being surrounded by nature is so grounding. The furniture has a modern flare which creates a bit of an edge and will be easy to use and live with for a long while. I also chose a crib that could transition into a toddler bed and a dresser with regular size drawers to accommodate a growing wardrobe. Plants and minimal toys were also used on purpose to create a clean, fresh and calm environment. When creating a nursery that will easily transition to a toddler and big kid room remember to pick furniture that grows, a rocker that can remain in the room or easily fit with your other furniture, storage and multiple lighting options. Art and colour is also a fun way to incorporate personality to set the mood and have some fun. I hope you enjoy the tour!
I absolutely love animals and could not resist stuffing my son’s nursery full of them, but did not want the space to feel too babyish as I hope my son can grow into it. I love how it turned out, and hope he enjoys it just as much as I do.
I created this sports inspired nursery for my son, due at the end of February.

This nursery was designed after spending hours and hours looking for nursery decorating ideas on Pinterest. I love the navy and lime green color combination.
This woodland toddler room was designed for my son when we found out he was going to be a big brother. I knew that I wanted to recreate a metallic wood wall I had seen on Pinterest and I loved the idea of a teepee! Navy and orange look great together and served as the main colors for the room.

Nautical Baby Showers are such a fun theme to work with. From the fun themed props to the color scheme, we love how it all came together. All of the paper decor was handcrafted and custom made for this event. Our favorite: The diaper cake, we love these custom orders and they make such a great impact on the table. We’d love to know what you think!
This room was designed for a little boy to update his nursery to his “big boy” room. The bead board wainscotting, convertible toddler bed and dresser were existing. My client wanted a “celestial” theme that was not too “themey”. This drove the design in that most (although not all) of the elements of the design were suggestive of the celestial theme, rather than literal. This is how I prefer to approach children’s room design because it allows the room the grow with the child. Who wants to completely redecorate every couple of years?!
I wanted my baby shower to be loads of fun for all my girlfriends, so that meant tonnes of fun games and delicious cocktails (and virgin punch for me)! I am a lover of all things 1950’s vintage, so the babyshower was retro themed to compliment my style.
An attic space was converted into a bedroom to create a cozy nursery for a baby boy & baby girl.
Raegan’s nursery is a girly mixture of pink, grey, and navy with lots of patterns of chevron and polka dots.
I would probably describe Blake’s nursery as Tribal Glam. A mix of wild animals, patterns, bold colors and of course a touch of gold.

We created this aqua, yellow and navy nursery to be a calm, happy space for our sweet baby boy! My husband and I both poured our hearts into this little room, and I’m so happy with how it turned out! My husband installed crown molding and painted furniture, and I sewed/crafted various things (curtains, mobile, changing pad cover, lampshade, etc.) and picked out meaningful art pieces to go in the room. It’s a nursery built with lots of love!
Oh, and we did it on a very small budget! :)
In searching for inspiration for Kaiven’s room, I found that most boy nurseries felt like an extension of the mom – Just another room for her – I wanted this space nursery to be for him and not for me. I also wanted the space to be able to grow with him.
We wanted a personalized and meaningful theme for our little boy’s nursery.
