A nursery for our first born--a baby boy expected in late May!
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.
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 www.naturalarearugs.com
Bookcase--re-purposed an old wooden bookcase by painting it cream and replacing the back panel with tongue and groove paneling painted blue
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.
