Carter’s Owl Nursery


This is my son's nursery. We did not want to have a typical "boy" room. We wanted to create a room with calm and relaxing colors.

Design Inspiration

The Pottery Barn bedding was the inspiration. We designed the paint colors ans theme after we found that.

Decorating Style

Modern, clean, and bright.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the wooden owl in the corner of the room. It lights up to make a night light.


Pick the furniture and bedding first. Choose paint colors and accessories after that. Also, do not be afraid to design outside of the box. It would have been very easy to make a blue boys room or sports theme. We wanted to be different and love every inch of it!

    Hi Emily, so I instantly fell in love with everything in the baby room. I’m currently 6months pregnant and getting my registrys done and I know you said the bedding was from pottery barn which I have found and added but the comforter that’s on the edge of the crib I can’t find and I absolutely need it to complete the look. Not sure where else I can find it..

    Can the “Carter” word art be found elsewhere other than Etsy? Like maybe JoAnn’s or Michael’s?
