Baby Kennedy’s Nursery


Ecclectic vintage inspired nursery

Design Inspiration

I did not want a theme whatsoever, and I did not want it to be too babyish!  I knew that I wanted bright cheerful colors and something that he will grow into... not out of.  I wanted to include an assortement of our childhood memories as well.  We wanted his room to be stimulating and fun!

Decorating Style

Ecclectic, vintage, mix and match

Project Details

I like to get the whole family involved in the decorating process.  My daughter painted the print above the bookshelf.  We found the bookshelf on craigslist and painted it emergency red.  The rocking chair was Grandmothers and was recovered.  I recovered the foot stool from velvet to burlap!  Just have fun.  This is one of the only times that you can really go all out!  I had a lot of fun and did not really have a guideline.  It was all about making the environment happy!


Favorite Items

It is hard to name just one!  I like it all!  I love the t.shirt shag rug.  The red bookshelf/toy chest.   I love that we all pitched in and made this room a special place for our baby boy!


I just let my imagination and creativity get the best of me.  Go wild.  The brighter the better!   Remember that they will only be in the "baby" stage for a very short time.  A room that they can grow into and with is important.  Look on craigslist, make decorations, check out etsy!

I like the little details you added, especially those little "speak no evil, see no evil and hear no evil" monkeys. I also like the shadowboxes, although I'd encourage you to put more whimsical items inside, aside from books and frames.
