Hey again! I’ve included so many angles and detail shots of this room because there are countless details to talk about and I didn’t want you to miss a thing! This mama wanted a special room for her baby boy to come home to but was struggling with the traditional boys room themes. She was so drawn to all of the pretty details in girls rooms, but she was having a BOY! And here’s the thing - your child’s room can be whatever you want it to be. There are no style rules here. So I set out to design a boys nursery with delicate details his mommy would love, but would be fitting enough for a boy. And it turned out beautifully. These parents were over the moon happy with how their baby boy’s room turned out and this to me is what it’s all about.
Not all boys rooms have to be themed with trucks and superhero’s. We started off with the typical blue color palette, since I knew I would be adding some extra touches “just for mom”. This blue color anchored the room as a boys room. I honestly love the fact that we didn’t think twice about going a completely different route for this space. If you are lucky enough to know a talented artist, keep them close because there is nothing like hand painted art to personalize any space. I’ve used this artist for years in my projects because I simply love his work that much. This landscape mural is a complete work of art and it sets the tone in this space. It’s pure perfection and so special! Another detail in this shot that’s unique is the mongolian lamb ottoman that I honestly wished I was taking home with me. This piece can for sure be used in another room in their home if/when they decide it’s time to swap it out for something else. I can just imagine it in the bathroom at the vanity…secretly smiling right now.
A few deets about the photos above - Mirrors in general help to brighten and open any space, so that is something that I always recommend. I love how this mirror (top left) reflects the beautiful details on the other wall. We made sure to securely mount this one into the studs on the wall so that it wouldn’t budge when their little one starts to make moves crawling - and eventually walking which is a journey in itself, so we don’t need any additional stress factors! Extra seating is also one of those tips high on my priority list for any room because…guests! The creamy champagne-gold fabric and tufting on this piece, I mean…it looks and feels so luxe! So… YES, YES, YES! Next up is this stunner in the middle - If you’ve logged into your Pinterest account anytime in the last decade you’ve probably noticed that crib canopies and draping have been so popular and for me, so often requested that I can’t even count how many times I’ve designed them. This fabric that we used has the most beautiful shades of blue, grey and brown in a watercolor pattern that is stunning framing the sides of the crib. An important safety note… This is an item that when baby starts standing in the crib, crawling and walking, needs to be removed for safety purposes. It can always be re-hung at a much later date when you have full confidence that your baby won’t be tempted to pull at the fabric. And last (far right) - just another pretty angle!
I can’t end this feature without talking about the centerpiece in the room. The crib! This beauty is from AFK Furniture and is called the ‘Cherubini’. I had the cherubs and most of the flower appliques that it comes with on the two end panels removed (because…BOY!) and instead, we added two king crowns for this special little man. You can see a detail of this in the slideshow at the top.
By far, one of my most memorable projects. There really is an endless vault of ideas that I have floating around in my head for future projects. The best part is that every single project is unique, different, new, fun and the thought of parents bringing their newborn home to the space that I’ve helped prepare for them and that they get to enjoy and love for years to come is so amazing for me. Reach out here when you’re ready to get started and work with me on your very own unique space!
