For the longest time I had been mentally designing a baby girl's nursery: vintage style, built around Franklin & Ben's Mason furniture, with pale sage walls, lots of shabby chic wall art, antique mirrors and such. I was a bit demotivated when I had to shift my focus, but with a bit of effort I managed to pull it off.
I kept the crib and dresser and again started building around it. Although I wanted to stay away from the standard blue room for a boy, in the end it seemed that a dark blue was the perfect color to complement the white wainscoating already in the room. I added yellow as an accent color. It was easy to choose the travel theme as I was a world traveler until I met my husband and settled down, and this is what I wish for my son - the opportunity to discover the world.
Paint: Behr, blue - Royal Breeze, yellow - Summer Harvest
Window blinds: Levolor, in snow white, custom-sized
Wall decal: Purchased on Etsy from Shannon and Beth
Crib and dresser: Mason Nursery Collection by Jennifer Delonge for Franklin & Ben
Glider and ottoman: Braxton Glider and Swivel Chair, pewter soft suede with navy blue piping, from Frank’s Furniture in Lawndale
Rug: Citrine Striped Madison Square Rug, 5’ x 7’6”, from Rosenberry Rooms
Vintage-looking boxes/suitcases: Purchased from an antique store in Ojai, CA. However I have later found them at The World Market for much cheaper.
Wall art: Animals, cartoon characters, purchase in Ojai from Kristy van Trease
I don't necessarily have a favorite item, but there is one combination I enjoy looking at: the wall decal and the mobile hanging over the crib.
