Alexander’s Nursery


This room was once our den converted into a guest room. It was dark and cozy with red walls. It will still once in a while need to serve as a guest room, but it is now the nursery for our baby boy :) The problem with a den is that is has no closet, hence two dressers. It is still missing crown molding, but not sure if we can actually make it happen before the arrival :)

Design Inspiration

I browsed through so many different nurseries online and fell in love with yellow & grey combination. I then found the cutest bedding set with giraffes, which I adore, and that's how it all started... I later added a touch of orange to give it a little more color.

Decorating Style

It's a mix of traditional and contemporary.

Take your time to find the things you love and don't get many things just because they will match with the room. It's a big project and if you want it to be perfect it will take time... But will feel so good at the end!

I like the uniform wooden furniture. But the cutest in this room are those giraffe heads in a frame above the crib.

Do you happen to have the name of the color on the walls available?
