Henrik’s Nursery


Nursery for our little boy Henrik who's due in April.

Design Inspiration

All over the place!  I was scouting ideas for a long time to get inspiration.

Decorating Style

We were aiming for less babyish and more sophisticated while still obviously being a baby's room.

Project Details

Painted both of the dressers starting with stain block primer

Husband built the book ledges

Giraffe Bust from Restoration Hardware:

Jenny Lind crib:

Rug from Overstock:

Underappreciated Animal cards from KickStarter:

Most other art from Katie Daisy:

Plush Giraffe, Melissa and Doug:

Favorite Items

The plush giraffe and the Katie Daisy art are some of my favorites.  I loved the idea of incorporating Michigan (where we live) and New York (where my parents live) in art for the room.


I think picking a solid color that pulls things together and looks sophisticated really gives it a more polished look.  In our case that was the navy but I think you have plenty of options.

Love how you mixed and matched colors and prints or patterns. It makes the room look so dynamic and "lived in."

I love it. It's definitely a room he can grow into and be proud of. Good job!
