Baby Louie’s Classic Nursery


A classic styled nursery that is comfortable and simple.

Design Inspiration

I saw a picture of a nursery once with the polka dot walls and knew I wanted to use them in this nursery. But I still wanted the nursery to feel "boyish" so we came up with this soft blue/gray color for the walls.

Decorating Style

Traditional, classic, with some clean lines to keep things simple.

Favorite Items

So hard to choose what my favorite item is! I love the bedding, the soft colors of it and the simple embroidered elephant design, so classic and timeless!


Finding the paint color was very important for this room... I wanted a "grown up" blue because of the playful polka dots. This is a color I would use in other parts of our home!

    Were the pokadots in a white paint? They almost look like they could be metallic.

    I believe I ordered it on Etsy. It was just one single circle… I actually ended up cutting out about 6 paper templates so that I could measure and place them in the correct spots. Then I took the stencil and laid it over the paper circle template, took the paper off and used a stencil roller to roll over the stencil. It took 2 of us, probably 2 days to do all of it. One person measured and placed the circle templates, one person went over the stencil and painted. It was a great “nesting” project for me in the 2nd trimester ;)

    You did a great job on the polka dots. Where did you get the stencil from? I love how calm and soothing the nursery looks.
