Tyler’s nursery


We just moved into our new house and found out we were expecting about a year later.  We had renovated the whole house and were so excited to redo a bedroom into a nursery!  For our son we wanted a modern yet playful design that didn't scream "baby!" so it could grow with him as he grew and we wouldn't have to update it right away.  Every time I sit in his nursery to feed him I feel happy and fulfilled.  It's exactly as I could have imagined.

Design Inspiration

We got our inspiration from different websites and blogs, including Project Nursery.  Also, from design shows and magazines.  Pretty much from all over!

Decorating Style

I would say I'm contemporary.  I like traditional with hits of modernism.

Project Details

All of the nursery furniture is from a local store on LI.  It's Stanley Young America.  The glider is the Monte Luca glider and ottoman.  Bedding is Dwell Studio.  All the other items were gifts from friends and family after the baby was born.  Bubble Clock is from Garnet Hill.  We had the walls and ceiling painted.  The back wall is a chalkboard paint for when Tyler is older and wants to use is imagination.  Light fixture is from Shades of Light.  Curtains are custom.  Tyler letters are from Etsy-BooBahBlue and the alphabet wall is another Etsy find- aworkinprogressgifts.


Favorite Items

Favorite items are the alphabet wall and the curtains and shades.  I love the ball fringe!  So playful!  Also, love the light fixture which was a second choice.  The first fixture we installed was too large for the room.  It was a happy accident that we brought this one in and I'm so glad we did!
