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

    I love this nursery! It is elegant and simple at the same time. I have a quick question. For the stripes how many inches apart did you do them?

    I absolutely love this! Can I ask what Etsy shop you got the decal from and also do you know those paint colors/store you got the paint. I want my nursery wall to look exactly like this!;). It’s so perfect!

    Wow! This is from far the most beautiful nursery I’ve ever seen ! I’m wishing to have a little baby boy, and I will most likely make his bedroom very similar to your Carter Michael’s one :)

    I love this room setup! I was wondering if the changing table storage unit is Kallax from Ikea? I really want that type of changing table/storage! Thanks ahead :)

    My sister made the monogram. However, you can purchase them on etsy too. I actually found the elephant at Marshall’s.

    What was the distance you used for the bottom where the white wood is? What etsy shop did you use for the frames?

    Thanks a bunch

    I really love the look of this room. I read that your stripes were 11 inches. How tall were your walls? Also what colors did you use for the decal?

    @Kristen I purchased the bedding from Carousel Designs. I actually am selling the bumper that if you are interested in purchasing it. Sadly, my little guy has outgrown his crib and we are are on baby #2.

    @shannon- My walls were 8 feet high and the monogram is black and white. My sister made the monogram for me.

  35. 35

    Denise, I’m so sorry but I don’t remember the distance and we have since sold the house or I would measure for you. I purchased the large frames from Ikea and the smaller ones from Target.

  36. 36

    I just saw your question. The curtains were made for me by someone on etsy. I can’t find the contact now though.

    @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.
