Modern Industrial Baby Boy Nursery

I really wanted to create a bright space for my baby boy, accented with masculine industrial and slightly rustic touches. Starting with a whitewashed wood wall, I was easily able to bring in subtle shades of blue and turquoise that contrasted beautifully with the mixed metals in the space.
I particularly like how this room turned out because it’s not overly “babyish” – it’s a space that will easily grow with my son. All we will have to do is swap out some of the artwork and the crib and he will have a stylish big boy room!
I think this space will appeal to many different design styles – rustic, farmhouse, industrial, contemporary and transitional – as it has all of these elements rolled into one cohesive space. It’s honestly my favorite room in the house!
