Description

Although we live in Upstate New York, my husband is from San Diego and I wanted to pay homage to his hometown and a beloved activity of his: surfing. I didn't want to go overboard with the theme and be too beachy or nautical, since I want this room to grow with my baby boy. The result was "classy coastal". There are some beachy elements and some nautical elements. I love to play around with patterns and textures so you can see that throughout this room. The first two things I chose that inspired the whole nursery were the Serena and Lily wallpaper, and the surf car print from Minted. I hope you love looking at these photos even half as much as I loved creating it!

    Hello!! I absolutely love this nursery! It’s really funny bc my husband and I are NY transplants living In Carlsbad, CA! Anyways I am having my first, a boy, in May and am hoping to try to recreate a version of the dresser. I saw you used an ikea dresser…was there a specific changing pad you bought that fit the IKEA dresser? Thanks so much!

    Jessica, Samantha, and Gina I’m so sorry I am just now seeing these and responding!

    Jessica- small world! My in laws live in Carlsbad and we were just there for 2.5 weeks escaping the winter ;). We bought an organic changing pad from Pottery Barn Kids and it fits great! I think the dresser will fit any standard changing pad.

    Samantha- thanks! It’s “agreeable gray” from Sherwin WIlliams, but I had them do 75% of the color because I wanted it slightly lighter.

    Gina- I used a mix of a couple different Annie Sloan paints until I found the perfect mix. It was a lot of trial and error and if you look close you can probably see the imperfections because I had to recreate the perfect balance of colors two or three times and definitely didn’t get it spot on.

    Ok thanks Emily! The graphite is a black and the Napoleon blue is a bright blue, is that correct? Thank you so much for helping me! This is my first baby and I’m really excited!

    Hi Emily – thanks so much for the tip on the Annie Sloane chalk paint. I love my dresser!! Another quick question – where did you get the blue plant pot?

    Is the sign from House of Belongings a wood sign or a print? I cannot find it on their sight ? could you also tell me what size it is and the color of ink, and color of frame. If House of Belongs no longer makes this i will reach out to an etsy seller.
    Thanks!

    This nursery is adorable and I feel so inspired! A few questions for you…how large is the scripture sign above the crib and is the font navy or black? DId you get it framed by House of Belongings? Also, all the printed pictures around the room…where did you find them? What about the throw pillows and palm? THank you!! Love it all!

    Love the wallpaper! Which shade of blue did you use from Serena & Lily – denim or french blue?

    I, too, am wondering what color you used for the Serena and lily wallpaper. Online, the denim and French blue both look so similar. This is exactly what I had in my head for what I was wanting to go for in our nursery.
