Baby O’s Nursery


A nursery for our first born--a baby boy expected in late May!

Design Inspiration

I wanted the room to have a very calm and restful feel.  I set out to achieve that by keeping the colors neutral and the furniture simple.

Decorating Style


Project Details

Wall color--Manchester Tan by Benjamin Moore

Crib--Jenny Lind from Million Dollar Baby

Glider and Ottoman--Nava style from Best Chair

Chest of drawers--antique chest from a flea market

Draperies--panels from Pottery Barn

Rug--seagrass basketweave with sage binding from

Bookcase--re-purposed an old wooden bookcase by painting it cream and replacing the back panel with tongue and groove paneling painted blue

Favorite Items

I love the bedding.  I had it custom made by a seamstress after picking out fabrics....tried to keep the fabrics pretty neutral so that the bumper pads (at least) could be used in a girl's nursery some day.  We'll have to change the bed skirt for a little girl--something a little more pink and frilly!


Mix and match.  Don't buy a bedroom suite where every piece matches.  You'll have a much more interesting room if you buy a bed in one color/finish, a changing table in another, etc.

HI there! Can you tell me what type of fabric you used on the bedding? The bumper looks like a linen or cotton. I'd also love to know the names of the fabrics and/or manufacturer if you have it, thanks!

Nice.Clean/ Unfussy. Handsome. Perfect from going from baby to young boy.

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments!  To answer the question about the drapes--I believe they are the Peyton or Cameron style from Pottery Barn.

I like the way you put this room together. Nothing too baby-ish, and nothing too boyish. And I like that the pieces and the decor are mix-and-match, and nothing too uniform. In effect, your neutral room doesn't look too stiff at the same time.

Do you recall which drapes you purchased from PB?  Love the nursery!
