Twists on a Classic


A classic nursery with attention to unique details combines to create a crisp room fit for a sweet baby boy. The paper airplane wall decal zips across the room to create a sense of whimsy. The white furniture sharply contrasts with the deep hues of the hardwood floors creating a crisp clean feeling. The funky sillhouettes take a playful approach to the family heritage and it's all tied together with a mint green rug with white polka dots.

Design Inspiration

I didn't want a theme. I wanted it to feel crisp, clean, with hints of whimsy. They are only babies for such a short time, I really wanted to take advantage of the "sweet baby" inspired room. I knew I wanted all white furniture and I knew I wanted it to feel calm yet playful for a really unique yet classic space.

Decorating Style

Ecclectic. I never "buy the room" I collect pieces and then find ways to fit them all together.

Project Details

Paint color: Light Silver Sage

Favorite Items

I love the airplane decal and the family sillhouettes.


Don't get caught up on a theme. Keep all the furniture one color and add interest by having unusual drawer pulls and colorful objects on display.

Soooo calm and peaceful. You can get custom fabric letter blocks on Etsy that would be great for Max's room.

Hi! Thank you! I found the wallprint at Z Gallerie.  And the tubs I found at TJ Maxx. They had the same ones at pottery barn kids but they were overpriced. Happy decorating!
