Nathan’s Blue & Gray Nursery


A clean and crisp boy nursery.

Design Inspiration

I had seen a lot of nurseries with board and batten and I loved the look and knew I had to have it. My husband and I are very into playing and watching sports but it didn't seem right to do a sports theme.  It felt like I was requiring my unborn son to also be into sports so I began looking at different non-themed boy crib bedding. I found the perfect set at Restoration Hardware Baby & Child.  Their Cloud Blue Quilted Bumper was beautiful and it was exactly the smooth look I was searching for.  From there everything else just fell into place.

Decorating Style

My decorating style in general is contemporary, classic and clean.

Favorite Items

I love how the decal above the crib looks.  It was the item that seemed to pull the whole nursery together.  I also love my glider/recliner.  I went back and forth on whether or not to get one and I am so happy I did.  I feel like I live in it these days.
