Conor’s Room


Conor's room is a whimsical, bright, gender neutral space for our son to sleep and play.  By avoiding a strictly "baby" theme, the space is just as appropriate now for our toddler as it was when he was a baby.

Design Inspiration

The room was inspired by several handmade items found on Etsy and created by family.

Decorating Style

fun, bright, colorful, playful, classic

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the wall book shelf from Land of Nod.  Every night Conor picks out his favorite stories at bedtime from that rack.


If incorporating brightly colored bedding and accessories, opt for an understated, light neutral wall color that won't overwhelm the room. Choose pieces YOU love, in addition to ones your little one will like.  You will spend lots and lots of time in this space with them, so it should be a place you enjoy, too!

I really appreciate that you put all the vendor information up. I really wish everyone would do that so that it makes shopping easy for the others. I have been looking for a book shelf for my daugther and yours is perfect!

Simple, clean and pretty room. I think the bird dreamcatcher is really cute and whimsical. And the collages above the crib look quite interesting, too.

I love the reds and blues. They really pop against the neutral walls. Nice job!
