Our little boy's nursery was fun. We wanted to do something that was cozy and soothing. I think that the paint color helps the room achieve that. The antiques and bedding make the room masculine, but very comfortable.
We wanted to do a little boy's room that wasn't babyish. We looked at so many pictures of nurseries but kept coming back to the pictures in Restoration Hardware Kids. This was our take on what we liked. I think that we had 1940's exploration in the back of our minds the whole time we were looking for pieces that might fit. It was an era where impossible things became possible with hard work and determination. We thought that was a perfect mindset for our little guy.
I think we are pretty traditional. We like antiques a lot and we are always searching for pieces that have character.
Restoration Hardware Kids and Baby: The bedding, changing pad, the hanging behind the crib, the stuffed elephant, the 'T' on the shelf
Target: The metal orb, the pulley, the tray on the changing table
Home Goods: The two spotlight lamps
Pottery Barn Outlet: The lamp beside the drop cloth hanging with the quote
McCarty Pottery: the fox
A lot of the antiques came from various stores in Florence, AL
I love the little antique desk. It fits in the nook of the dormer perfectly.
Buy what you love. It will all work together.
