Baby boy nursery inspired by the color mint and puppies.

Design Inspiration

We have two miniature Australian Shepherds that we love to bits and pieces.  So I wanted to bring our love of dogs in to the baby's nursery and we hope that our baby will learn to love and appreciate dogs and animals of all kinds.

I found these beautiful watercolor prints of Australian Shepherds from Etsy and I knew I wanted the color mint as the primary color for the nursery, so I designed everything around those two components.

Decorating Style

I typically love the French cottage, almost shabby chic style.  However, since I am expecting a little boy, I couldn't indulge in my love for ruffles, lace, and florals.  So I went the opposite route and did a more modern nursery.  But I did infuse a bit of "shabby chic" by repurposing a dresser I bought off Craigslist and used that as the changing pad table and dresser, which I painted in Annie Sloan's chalk paint.
