Bryce’s Rustic Meets Modern Monochrome Nursery


When I found out I was having a baby boy, I'll be honest and say that I felt a little sense of panic when I thought about decorating a nursery. Before my daughter was born, I felt like I had a clear vision of the type of nursery I wanted for her, and had so much fun bringing that vision to life. But a boy's room felt so foreign to me; I've grown up with all sisters and boy things were just not on my radar!

When it came time to really start putting the room together, I actually started finding my inspiration through Instagram. I'd found some Mama-owned shops that I'd been following for a while because I loved the beautiful and unique products they created. I started paying attention to their items that were more 'boyish' and began to see a pattern with the things I liked - they were mostly monochrome - black, white, gray, and natural wood tones, and had a whimsical edge to them. When I think of boys, I think of the outdoors, and starting pulling together items that featured mountains, camping, and various woodland creatures. I also needed the room to fit with the style of the rest of our home, which has a modern farmhouse vibe, and thought the wood planked wall would tie it all together.

For several months I continued to find more and more fantastic small businesses through Instagram and built a collection of my favorite finds. I loved that the items were unique and that I was helping another Mama somewhere in the world (so many of them are in Australia - I think there must be something in the water there that sparks incredible creativity among the ladies who live there!) I wasn't sure how or if it would all come together, but once I really began decorating the room, I felt like it did and I'm so happy with the result.

Hi SueAnn! Thank you so much for your sweet compliment! That is the Happy Campers Playset from Trae Designs. She makes the cutest things - I also used her little cactus playset for my son’s first birthday decor! You can find them at

LOVE this nursery! I looked through the links and I’m not sure if I’m missing it or I’m blind LOL, but where did you get the little wooden set that has the 2 people, teepees, and bear from? Those are too cute!
