We wanted Carter's nursery to be a classic nursery befitting a little gentleman. The focal point of the nursery is the striped wall. I wanted the stripes to vary in size and color to create more visual interest and to stand out from your average stripes. I chose to stay with cool calming colors that complemented each other and fit the overall feel of the room. We had a mix of accessories for our little gent, from travel inspired pictures to vintage sports balls and of course we had to tie in some nautical pieces with our home being in San Diego. A lot of the items in the nursery were DIYed or customized by us. My favorite item might be the shelf that we made out of rope, galvanized pipes and painted wood. Another fun touch were the handprinted knobs on his dresser that looked like baseballs. We also changed out the standard closet in his room so it would have display shelves but still offer storage options. I feel like the room is perfect for our little guy but still keeps with the overall feel of our house.
