Baby Hoots’ Nursery


With a last name Hoots, I couldn't resist an owl themed nursery. Although I'm not usually crazy about themes, I'm pleased with how it turned out!

Design Inspiration

I first found the owl prints on etsy and built the room around them.  I knew I wanted to stay away from pastels and I was drawn to the bright prints.  I went with gray walls, white furniture, and pops of color.

Decorating Style

Wish I had one!

Project Details

A friend painted the wall murals.  My mom made the valence and the book sling.  Changing table and shelves from IKEA.  Bedding is from Skip Hop, Mod Dot collection.  Lamp is from Home Goods.

Favorite Items

A tie between the tree mural and the book sling.


Stay away from baby stores when decorating and if you choose to do a theme, resist the urge to buy everything you find relating to the theme.  Owls are everywhere and it would be easy to over do it.

Did your mom freehand the tree mural? It is exactly what I am looking for, but I can't draw a straight line, so I have to either find a premade stencil or decal.
