Around the World with Charles


This nursery was designed for my youngest son, Charles.  I wanted a clean, contemporary nursery but with a 'wow' feature!

Design Inspiration

My inspiration was a beautiful room designed by Samantha Pynn....but also a onesie that my eldest son had when he was a baby. 

I also included some travel/around the world elements.

Decorating Style

Modern, Contemporary, Simple

Project Details

I painted the feature wall when I was 35 weeks pregnant (with a 10pd, 10oz baby!), not the easiest thing to do...escpecially the bottom stripes!

Favorite Items

I do love my egg chair, but I also love the soldier skittles which are just gorgeous.

I love the stripes on the wall, too. And that Noah's Ark wooden toy on the table is very cute!

Well done! One of the most beautiful rooms I've seen so far! Loved the combination of colors on the wall and the egg chair gave it such a modern/ cozy touch! Great job! :)
