Hudson’s Nursery


I created this nursery for my son Hudson, due in July 2013.

Design Inspiration

I wanted the nursery to have a modern farm theme and be something that he could grow into as he gets older.

Decorating Style

I like fresh patterns and mixing different textures.  I like minimal clutter and functional spaces!  I piece things together bit by bit and adjust as I go along - I don't like things to look too "matchy matchy", so I look for items from all different sources and mix them together.

Favorite Items

I love the cardboard cow head!  I think it will give Hudson something fun to look at while he lies in bed.

I also like the knit pouffe.  It will up the comfort level during night time feeds and I think when Hudson gets older he will love playing on it.


Just take your time!  Start decorating the nursery early to allow the style of the room to develop.  The more time you spend in the nursery the better idea you'll have as to how to make the space functional.

If you decide to go with a theme, think of ways that you can achieve the look without going out and buying pre-packaged baby room products.  It will save you money and give you a more classy looking nursery!

That cardboard bull's head is adorable. With something that cute, who needs the real thing, right?

I love the fact that it is very neat and basic. A no-fuss space that's still very lovely.
