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!

    You can never go wrong with neutral and muted colors. You also didn’t go overboard with decorations, so everything looks so peaceful and uncluttered.

    I agree!  Very soothing and calm.  Love that the crib and dresser are different colors.
