Baby Brox’s Classic Nursery


I wanted to create the perfect retreat for Brox that made him feel cozy and loved. Our home is a 1940's tudor with a very classic style and I wanted to tie his room into the rest of our home and create something that could grow with him.

Design Inspiration

I started out with the "you are my sunshine" wall art and just started building a collection of things I loved. I tied the pieces together with a gray pallete with strong masculine patterns like houndstooth. I loved hunting for great pieces like the cross stich wall art, vintage picture frame and refurbished dresser that doubles as a changing table.

Decorating Style

I find pieces that reach out to me and have a special meaning and find ways to connect the dots and create a cohesive look. My style is very classic and traditional.

Project Details

Favorite Items

I have so many favorite items! The "you are my sunshine" wall art is so special because my mom used to sing it to me as a little girl. The bedskirt, sheet, curtains and changing pad cover have special meaning because they were made by my grandmother.  I also really like the fun funky welcome to Texas lampshade that adds a bit of pop to the room.


I think that the key to a great nursery is filling it with special pieces that make you smile and will one day have special meaning to your baby. Everything does not have to match!

    thank you so much for the compliments!

    the paint color is sherman williams tinted blue. I wanted a very light shade of bluish gray without being over the top baby boy blue.

    the frame and cross stitch hoop are hung with two nails. I just hung the hoop right below the frame so it looks like one cohesive piece.

    the dog pillow is from home goods. we have a yellow lab named clyde so I loved that the pillow had a lab on it!

    I love all the tiny details you used to make the room truly unique and special! How did you hang the cross stitch hoop from the frame above the crib?

    I bought the containers from the container store and bought the chalkboard labels on etsy.

    Where did you get the containers/ bins in the shelf?

    I really like the subtle colors. The room looks very relaxing and very easy on the eyes. That chalkboard adds some charm, too.

    I ordered it on etsy for baby shower decoration for my best friend and ended up using it on Brox’s crib. They cost $15 and she will do custom orders.
