A modern rustic outdoor inspired nursery with a reclaimed wood wall and woodland wall mural.  I wanted the room to be soothing and fun but still be something that he could grow with over time.

Design Inspiration

My husband and I both love the outdoors and finding adventures.  I tried to bring the outdoors in for our little, looking to our local wildlife for inspiration. I hope the room inspires him to want to be outside and explore as he grows up.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is a mixture of modern and rustic.  I like to keep major parts of the room, paint and large furniture neutral, and then add lots of texture and fun accessories.  I like to layer things and mix different elements of wood, metal, and softer items.

Project Details

White Feather Garland: DIY

Mural: DIY

Minnow Bucket/ Lantern: Antique/belonged to Grandfather

Favorite Items

The wood wall and mural are my favorites, but I also love the ceiling light.  I think lighting is often overlooked and it can make such a big impact on the feel of a room.


I think that you should only decorate with things you love.  Especially in a nursery, you will be spending lots of time rocking, feeding and playing with your little one and want to enjoy and feel relaxed in this space.  I think it's great to try to incorporate everyday items into the decor.  Things like books and toys can be decorative and functional.

    Could you tell me where you purchased both of the picture frames on the collage wall? I love this nursery and I’m doing something similar for our son. I am interested in the frame with the fish print and the animal tracks prints. Thank you!

    Hi! I love this room. Could you tell me details on the pendant light? What finish is it and what is the size of the cage?

    Did you sand the wood to make it somewhat smooth or are you worried about splinters once he’s older and touching the wall? Looks great!

    Thank you! I designed and hand painted the mural. I just used various shades of grey craft paints for the mural and the wall color is silver birch by Behr. :)
