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.
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.
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.

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!
