Ellis’ Nursery


Baby boy nursery in orange, gray and blue with subtle travel theme.

Design Inspiration

Travel. Both my husband and I love to travel and hope that our son does as well. I didn't want to go with an obvious theme with cars and trains, but wanted something more subtle. There is a kids map on the wall, an illustration puzzle of kids from around the world, the union jack and various other travel inspired items.

Decorating Style

modern eclectic.

Project Details

All the linens, crib sheet and skirt, changing table cover, pillow, and table cloth and pouf were made by my mother-in-law. I chose all the fabrics and she created them! The crib is Babyletto's Hudson , it was a cheaper alternative to the oeuf sparrow crib. The chair is by little castle, and purchased from buy buy baby. The changing table is from pottery barn kids- Kendall collection. The toy box was custom made by my dad. The stars and circles garland above the crib was made by polkadotshop on Etsy. The bins under the changing table and map picture are from Land of Nod. The rug is from Room and Board.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the union jack pillow and table cloth. My husband and I met in London, so it is only fitting that our son's nursery has a little nod to the UK :) I like this pattern because it has a more modern feel to it than the traditional union jack colors.


Think outside of the box, if you can't find what you are looking for at the stores figure out how to make what you want...find someone who knows how to sew or knit or woodwork. I had the pillow and table cloth made out of bed sheets that I found, I had the toy bin custom made and the pouf was hand knit.

That kids map on the wall and illustration puzzle of kids from around the world look really interesting. Wish you had close-up shots of those.

I like its simplicity. I wonder what the other side of the room (the one opposite the crib) looks like though.

hi florence- the opposite wall is wall to wall closets with mirrored doors, so nothing exciting :)
