Tucker’s Little Man’s Nursery


This project is beyond special to me, not only because I designed it, but because I am the gestational carrier for this little guy.  His mom and dad did an amazing job implementing my design concept and we all can't wait til August when he arrives.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this room came from Tucker's daddy's love of golf and a few memorable pieces he had and wanted to incorporate into the space. The parents also really wanted the striped walls. You can read more about this all on my site here.

Decorating Style

As a designer I tend to lean on the more modern side, but I am able to pull just about anything together based on my clients wants.  This nursery is definitely more traditional.

Favorite Items

Being his gestational carrier my favorite item would have to be the California silhouette print because it has the city marked where I'll deliver him so he'll always remember me and where he was born.  The designer in me would have to say I love how the "Little putter boy" print over the crib turned out.  It was a poster that his daddy (my cousin) has had and we had it re-framed.


Don't be afraid of the striped walls, they are time consuming to paint, but they make such a statement.  Just remember to balance out the rest of your patterns in the space so that they don't compete with the stripes.  Keep other patterns small in scale and introduce some solids as well.

Stripes never disappoint! Love that you used so many affordable sources too.
