Rustic Alaska Inspired Nursery


This is our son's Haines's Alaska-Inspired Nursery. Complete with details that highlight the great state as well as a few DIY touches that my husband and I worked on to help realize our vision of a cozy cottage in the mountains.

Design Inspiration

We went with a masculine rustic theme with this nursery. After living in Alaska for 4 years, we fell in love with the people and the beautiful state. I think it would be safe to say that my husband is and always will be "obsessed" with Alaska. The day we moved was a sad sad day for him, so I thought a rustic Alaska-Inspired nursery for his baby boy would go over well to say the least.

Decorating Style

I would describe my decorating style as "sophisticated whimsy". When it comes to kids spaces, I like to think outside the box and work with accent items that I would use to decorate in the rest of my home, then add touch of whimsical baby/kid friendly accents throughout. This helps keep a cohesive look without the room becoming too overwhelming.

Project Details

Wood Wall - DIY

Antlers - From husband's stash

Metal Letters - DIY (My husband cut using a water jet)

Leather Wingback Rocker - Husband and I DIY

Favorite Items

The Wood Wall - I new I wanted a wood treatment, however, I wanted something different and the stripes made for a unique display.


If you have a theme in mind for a baby/kids space, don't be afraid to add accent pieces that are "adult" for lack of a better word. It will make for easier tradition down the road and it will give the space a sophisticated feel.
