Lennon’s “simply blue” nursery


{baby boy nursery}

After recently moving into our house, Lennon’s nursery was the room I wanted to get painted and decorated after finishing up our living room.   Of our family of 5, he spends the most time actually in his bedroom.

I wanted something that wasn’t too ‘babyish.’  Something that was simple and not too cluttered.  Colors that would still work even when he’s in his teens.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration was the area rug and piggy bank that I already had.  The area rug was originally in our basement.  Plain and simple...I wanted to reuse it so I didn't have to sell it on craigslist.

Decorating Style

practical, modern, clean

Favorite Items

My favorite item is probably the bookshelves.  It's amazing what a raingutter can achieve.


Reuse as much as you can.  Instead of buying new picture frames, paint them yourself!

I really love that this room looks just the basic, with pops of interesting details here and there.
