Hudson’s Nursery


We wanted something contemporary, and not too baby-ish, lol. It started with the wallpaper, and grew from there. We have incorporated old and new into this room and I love the way it feels.

Design Inspiration

The wallpaper was probably my inspiration.  I liked the mod feeling of it, and loved the colours.  We weren't sure whether we were having a boy or a girl at that point and I felt it was fairly gender neutral.

Decorating Style

I don't think I have a decorating style, I just try to put things in my space that I truly love; if you love everything in the room, you will love the room as a whole too. 

Project Details

There are a few DIY projects in this room:

1) painted the blue dresser - we decided to paint this a similar colour to the "keep calm and carry on" poster to tie things together.

2) sanded/stained/painted the change table.  This was a piece we used to have in our old apartment as a kitchen island. We finished it to compliment the crib.

3)I repurposed an old bed skirt (from a queen sized bed) for the crib bed skirt.

4) the boxes under the change table are bankers boxes that I covered in faux alligator vinyl. 

5)the curtains are from ikea and sewed the orange ribbon on top to tie it into the wallpaper.

Favorite Items

the wallpaper; the light; the glider (Rena by bestchairs) and the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster.

    Hi Hazel06: Your humor worked too :)  I’ve showed this nursery to a cousin of mine who is due in June and she loved it!

    Wow, those lights could have fooled me.  They don’t look anything like plastic in the picture!  Thanks for answering and thanks for sharing this room :)

    Love your white frames by the changing table. They’d look lovely if you get really nice prints that would attract your baby’ attention while he gets his diapers changed.

    Thanks Ysczabel!  That was the idea, I laughed when I found the poster, I think it gives a bit of humour to the room… I’m sure there will be times when it will come in handy :)

    Cool nursery. And you’re right. It’s not baby-ish. Your “Keep Calm and Carry On” is not “baby-appropriate,” but I think it’s appropriate for whoever us changing the diapers. =)

    Thanks, I love it too! It is the Rena glider by Best Chairs, from their storytime series.  It is in pumice and trimmed in nougat.

    Love the glider! Where is it from?

    Thanks!  It’s plastic,  the base is from an ikea light that is very similar, though I liked this shade better, so we used it instead.  We found it at a little boutique in Ottawa, but I’ve seen them in a few home stores.

    Nice modern nursery. And hey, your light looks really interesting. What’s it made of? Paper?
