This project is very special to me, because it's for my babies!  We were pleasantly surprised to find out we were expecting TWIN boys.  I couldn't wait to get started!

Design Inspiration

I either wanted to do a boho baby or a classic baby vibe for their nursery.  I decided that classic was the way to go.  They are going to want a hand in their rooms when they're older and won't want it to be baby.  They are only babies once!

Decorating Style

Updated traditional.  I like clean lines and pieces, fabrics and a feel that is classic.  I don't like to be too trendy and have to change key pieces too often.

Project Details

  • I did the Harper bedding collection in navy from pb kids; can't go wrong. I didn't want to get the Harper quilt because it is $100.00 and they wont even use it!  I bought white quilts online for $40.00 each instead and had their monograms put on them.
  • The dresser in their room was in my closet and has to be from the 80's.  I painted it Valspar corduroy black (it's actually a navy), added new knobs and I just love it!
  • The chandelier is from Lowes and was $80.00 .  I spray painted it white, bought the shades from Lowes as well and added navy grow grain ribbon with a hot glue gun.
  • The curtains are from pb kids as well.  I did two panels on each side to make them fuller.
  • Of course, a ton of accessories are from HomeGoods; what would I do without? ;)


Favorite Items

I love the vintage Babar prints I found at the Paris flea market.  I also love the stripes.


If you are trying to conquer stripes....

  • Have someone who is meticulous tape off the room
  • Paint over the tape with your base coat (this will prevent bleeding), then go back and paint the colored stripe once the base coat has dried

    Is Illusion the Sherwin WIliams color? I had a hard time finding it on the SW site. Thank you!

    She may have meant Aleutian SW 6241…try that as a starting point, it looks very similar.

    Hi! this room is fabulous! I am getting ready to paint stripes in my son’s room. Could you please tell me roughly how wide your stripes are? They are perfect! Thanks so much!

    Hi! I am wanting to redo some dressers for my boys like the one you have, but when I visited Lowe’s it looks like the valspar corduroy black is really more of a charcoal color. Did you go over it with a royal blue or navy gloss?
