Bennett’s Room


A comfortable, happy nursery for our first child!

Design Inspiration

I didn't want a traditional boy's nursery with the walls being blue and the bedding being the main focal point. I knew I wanted the walls a good neutral because there were too many other pops of colors I wanted to add! I first found the prints above the crib and went from there! I opted for non-matching furniture - including the teal dresser! (A $20 flea market find!!) The other items around the room were collected throughout the pregnancy over time. It's filled with some flea market finds, a handful of  items from Etsy, and some random finds for our sweet baby boy. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

Decorating Style

I like more modern things, and always prefer it to feel comfortable. I feel like that was achieved in the nursery. It's not too fussy, and has all the necessities - while looking great! This room will easily transition with him as he gets older, which is a plus!

Project Details

Teal dresser - $20 flea market score! Prints above crib - Etsy Shop: Sycamore Street Press Mini Bunting - Etsy Shop: A Fete Beckons White long book shelves - built by hubby! Moose rocker - IKEA White square bookcase - IKEA Sheet - Etsy Shop: Sweet Bobbins Rocking Chair - gift (not sure from where) Curtains - Made by a friend, fabric found various places online

Favorite Items

The dresser, the prints above the crib, and the red rocking moose... :)


This room is filled with lots of things that I fell in love with that came together to create the perfect space! Because of that, I am so pleased with the outcome and love going in there each day!  Find items you love -it doesn't all have to be matchy-matchy!
