Traditional and Classic Baby Boy Nursery


I was going for a very classic, traditional, and french-looking nursery for our first sweet baby boy. I wanted to use things that were meaningful in his room for personalized touches.

Design Inspiration

I was inspired by the Father of the Bride 2 Nursery and also the Art for Kids French furniture line look.

Decorating Style

Traditional and Classic. Timeless.

Project Details

I used Sherwin Williams Silver Strand for the walls and ceiling. The bedding fabric is a silk supioni called "Marais Stripe" in Ciel by Kravet. The bed crown was purchased from Horchow. The dresser/changing table was an antique that we had painted and glazed. The mirror and round hanging frame belonged to my sweet grandmother and were hanging in her house when my mom was a little girl. They were both originally a brassy gold color, but we had them painted and glazed in an ivory cream to match the rest of the room. The clothing rack was in my nursery when I was a little girl. The four framed Beatrix Potter prints were purchased from and were chosen because I used to love Peter Rabbit growing up! The large stuffed giraffe is one of my favorite touches, and we purchased it from Melissa and Doug on The crystal chandalier just adds the final touch to the room and we had it put on a dimmer to get a dreamy look.

Favorite Items

Probably the mirror which belonged to my grandmother. If she were still around, she would be so excited that we were using it in this room!


Try to find special things that you already have. And forget about having a "theme." Just fill the room with things that have special meaning to you and that you love and cherish, and you will love the finished result.

This is the most beautiful baby nursery I have ever seen!

More beautiful than the nursery featured in Father of the Bride 2. Really.
