Benjamin’s Nursery Tour


Our project is a little boys nursery for our lovely son Ben. We wanted something that would work well with the rest of our interior, and something that would grow with Ben for the first few years.  The entire project can be read about on our blog The A&B Stories

Design Inspiration

Our house is basically filled with various shades of grey, and so we wanted to use that as our inspiration since we love it so much. We chose this soft blue/grey and it worked beautifully. We wanted white, modern furniture that could be used down the road in other rooms, so that when he's older he can redo his room as he chooses (with Mom's help of course, ha ha). And we didn't want any sort of obvious theme of course.

Decorating Style

We lean towards modern classic furniture, and neutral, airy walls.

Favorite Items

We LOVE the crib, and the prints both above the bed and dresser.


I think it's really important to see past the baby phase and realize that your little one won't be little for very long. I can picture Benjamin playing in this room, rolling around on the carpet, for years to come.

Love this nursery. It is simple, beautiful, perfection. :) I was also wondering where you got the frames for the posters above the crib? Thanks, Erika

We LOVE your room - and have used it as the inspiration for our baby room! LOVE the Vintage Posters website and just ordered 3 similar for our soon-to-be-born son's room. I have a question - where did you get the frames for them? I am looking to do the same... any help much appreciated! Thank you!
