Description

A traditional, peaceful nursery for our first baby  boy.

Design Inspiration

While celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary in Rome, Italy, my husband and I found out that I was pregnant! We wanted a traditional nursery for our baby boy, with a few travel inspired touches. I was born and raised in Florida so our color scheme was nautically inspired. We used creams, golds and blues to create a peaceful retreat for Roman and us. 

Decorating Style

Neutral, Glamorous, Traditional.

Project Details

The biggest project we tackled ourselves was the picture frame molding and chair rail (and by "we" I mean my husband).

It was pretty time consuming but it is one of my favorite features in the room and definitely helps to give it that high end traditional feel we wanted.

The crib and the rocker were our biggest splurges in the room.

Advice

Stay away from buying sets of things (matching curtains, bedding, rugs). Create your own original look by collecting things from all over. Shop at stores for adult decor. Hardly anything in our nursery is from a "baby" store.

    Very nice, but looks like the room of a grown up, not all that stimulating or fun for a baby.

    This is a beautiful nursery. I really like that you chose a sophisticated color palette and the gallery wall is just stunning.

    I cannot remember the name of the lamp I purchased. :( I do remember that the brand was Allen and Roth but I don’t see the same one online. I bought mine in my local store so I hope they have one at yours! Good luck!

    where did you get your gold “r”?? diaper pail? woven basket? any gold picture frames?

    I am doing a similar color scheme and am struggling with gold accessories. what size frames did you go with?

    I have been looking at that Nurseryworks Empire Rocker as well. Can you tell me if the color is cream or more beige? I have seen different pictures online and I swear every one of them looks like a different shade. What would you say the true color is? And would it go well next to a white crib?

    Where are your ring pulls from? I’m looking for something exactly like that on a Hemnes dresser. Thanks!

    I love the picture frame moulding! I am trying to achieve the same look in my bedroom where did you purchase your moulding? What color white is the room? It is very warm and soothing!!

    I adore this nursery. How did you go about finding pieces of etsy? It’s always a time-consuming process, weeding through the artwork. Any tips you have would be great!

    the nursery is beautiful. i’m looking for a dresser and absolutely love yours. where did you get it?

    I love that dresser and found it at Ikea but not in the same wash. Did you repaint it yourself? If so, how?

    Is that the Hemnes dresser from Ikea? What finish is that? Maybe they don’t have that finish as an option anymore :( It’s so beautiful.

    Yes the Hemnes dresser and stain no longer a available in Canada. Might be in the U.S. so I will find an equivalent here.
