Cooper’s Transitional Nursery


My son is currently 17 months old and he is 100% all boy.  He is so curious and wants to know how everything works and he wants to touch and explore everything so it was time to make some changes to his room to keep him busy, safe and most important and place to have fun.

Design Inspiration

The design inspiration for the changes made to the room would be my son.  It's sorta funny but he had a terrible cold so I broke out the humidifier that happened to project colorful stars on the ceiling and he went absolutely nuts.  At the same time I decided to get rid of the bumper on the crib.  I originally put it on the crib once he started rolling over and crawling because he'd literally wake up every night with his hands and legs stuck in the crib.  Now that he's walking and climbing I didn't want to give him an extra boost to help him climb out of the crib.  While I was at it I decided even though the print hanging next to the crib was very secure I thought if anyone could figure out how to take it off it would be him.  This left the wall very empty and that's when I decided something needed to be on the wall.  I decided to add some stenciled stars and just used a stamp and randomly stamped them on with just a lighter shade of gray.  I also decided to paint a chalkboard frame so I could write different messages on it.  Now I was on a roll and decided to move the chaise lounge back in my bedroom and make the area more of a place Cooper could really play and ordered the teepee from Land of Nod.  It's a huge hit, he crawls in and out of it all morning long!  I also made over my toy box from when I was a little girl and added it to his space because he's got a lot more toys now.

Decorating Style

Eclectic, sentimental and fun.

Favorite Items

Currently the teepee, the solar system mobile and the stars, because they are the items that makes my son the happiest.


My advice is to not worry what's on trend and decorate with what you love and make changes as your son/daughter become older and incorporate things that make them happy and smile!  It's a baby's room so have fun!
