Asher’s Natural Explorer Nursery


I had no real plan for this nursery when I started out beyond liking gray and orange.  The first item I purchased was the cow rug and the rest of the room kind of evolved from there.

Many items in the room were repurposed.  For example, the dresser and chest were my mom's when she was a little girl, just repainted with new hardware. Likewise, the suitcases were already in the guest room. I had actually just moved them out of the way when we were positioning the crib and they ended up staying there.

We had originally planned built in bookcases but as my due date neared and my nesting reached critical levels, we opted for the plumbing pipe shelving for the sake of speed.  Once installed though, I couldn't be happier with the choice.

    Just saw this. We built the shelving ourselves using plumbing pipe and some boards.

  5. […] Asher’s Natural Explorer Nursery by hymal09 Naomi, of Little Crown Interiors, says, “This nursery has a great juxtaposition of warm and cool tones. The gray walls and black accents have a cooler feel, while the wood tones, hide rug and pops of orange warm up the space so it feels balanced.” […]
