Baby Boy Nursery Argyle


Argyle print in orange, blues and grays. Small space, lots of character! Books and sock monkeys make up much of the decor.

Design Inspiration

This space was inspired by an argyle print. I was wanting to veer away from the popular baby blue and brown. I chose all the decor in the room based off the colors in the print. It was challenging to match the colors but totally worth it!

Decorating Style

Traditional with a few whimsical details.

Project Details

The hardest part of decorating the nursery was painting the argyle print on the wall. It required a ton of math and a TON of time. The book shelf/lean above the dresser is a $10 chair rail cut to the desired length. Just about everything in the room was handmade. I wanted my baby's nursery to be one of a kind!

Favorite Items

I love the pinwheel mobile. I found scrapbook paper that matched the argyle fabric and made the mobile myself with button brads and fishing line. I also love all the books. Cooper has HUNDREDS of books so it was very important to have a shelf to display a few of my favorites. We did not have the room for a rocking chair so I chose to add a child size leather chair for a reading corner when he gets older.


Find a fabric you love and design your room around that. I also would suggest not filling your nursery up with unneccsary furniture, especially if you have limited space like I did.

I can't believe that argyle print is hand painted! It looks amazingly perfect.

I hope you uploaded photos of how the room looks like overall. I can't seem to get the entire picture from these pictures of the details. Anyway, Cooper looks absolutely darling!
