Carter’s Peaceful Haven


Decorating Carter's nursery was a very exciting time for me.  I love to decorate and this project was so dear to my heart.  I wanted his nursery to be a place that could transition very easily.  I didn't want anything overly trendy or "babyish".  Yet, I wanted it to be a room that he would love as much as I do. It does have some newer trendier things but I also incorporated some refurbished and traditional items.

Design Inspiration

There were several things that inspired me but the first thing that I fell in love with was his bedding. I loved that it was trendy but classic at the same time. I also found a picture of the board and batten on pinterest and knew that it would add the touch that I really wanted.  It made the room just really come together.

Decorating Style

I would have to say that my style really varies depending on the room.  I like rooms that will be in style for years to come.  I don't like overly trendy things.  So, I guess I am more traditional with an eclectic twist.

Project Details

Monogram- Made by my sister

Table- Repurposed from guest bedroom

Favorite Items

I love the Monogram that my sister made.  I also love the dresser and bedding.  Everything just came together so perfectly. I also think my husband did a great job painting the stripes on the wall for me.


I would say allow yourself the time to find what you are really searching for and don't be afraid to experiment

@Carla- I can't remember the photo size. The frames are the large ones from Ikea and we had to size the print to them.
