Old World Boy Nursery


Old world, vintage, royal room for a boy

Design Inspiration

Awhile back I had seen a article in a magazine on Jennifer Lopez's nursery. It was old world, vintagey, & classic all rolled up into 1 and I fell in LOVE!!!! Then I was at a boutique and saw this custom bedding for a girl (i was having a boy) that had leopard in it and again I fell in LOVE! SO I went to a fabric store and brought pictures and this is what I came up with. Who says boys can't have leopard??

Decorating Style

I am eclectic and old world with a twist of funky!!!

    How did you do the stenciling on the wall “Once Upon a Time There was a Prince”. I really think it is beautiful can you tell me what you used?

    Aw~ The nursery is adorable and I love the blue/brown combination! And the CRIB!? It’s SO beautiful!!

    PS Do you mind sharing the name and brand of the blue colour you painted the walls? I love it!

    A room fit for a little king! You got a really lovely crib. This is the first old-world nursery I have seen, and I think it’s splendid!

    Thank you so much for your sweet words!!! The saftey pin I randomly found at home boutique store that has actually closed now :( It was called Mud Pie in Chandler, AZ.

    Oh my, this is one wonderful room.  Regal and elegant with a very grown up feel to it.  I love the mix of brown and blue.  My favorite item has to be that bedding and that big safety pin (where’d you get that???)
