Caleb’s Calming Nursery


A calming, yet fun room out-of-the-box of traditional baby boy themes.

Design Inspiration

We are raising our boys bilingually so I decided to incorporate the Spanish alphabet and numbers. The colors were based around the fabrics. Many of the ideas came from Pinterest.

Decorating Style

Simple, contemporary

Project Details

We had many DIY projects in this room. I painted a dresser, nightstand and bookcase that we already owned and my mom made the bedskirt, pennants, floor pillow, throw pillow and changer cover. You can read more of the details at Resources: Fabric: Heather Bailey Garden District Spanish Alphabet Cards: Children Inspire Design (etsy) Name & scripture vinyl: Just Wright Vinyl Decor (etsy)

Favorite Items

It's so hard to decide. I love the alphabet cards and my cozy corner with the rocker.


Start early so you don't feel rushed into buying things. That way you can pick up cute items as you see them. I also carried around swatches of the fabric and paint colors with me, so if I saw something I could see if it would match (or coordinate).

Lovely nursery you have here. I like the simplicity, the practicality, and the fact that you didn't go overboard with the details. I see a lot of unused space -- both on the floor and on the wall -- and I think it's really nice you didn't have the urge to fill it with more decorative elements.

I couldn't agree more with everything you said, Neytiri! This room is simple, practical and overly done.
