This little room oozes classic appeal and preppy tradition, with great beginnings for your sweet little boy’s nursery. Subtle color, classic finishes, and pretty fabrics: Pieces that will grow with him for years to come, that will make future transitions quite effortless. It simply feels like a sweet little man’s room, with touches of the time-withstanding antique brass, and beautiful pops of color to inspire a lifetime of imagination, and amongst other things, great taste…Something that really should be at the top of every parent-to-be’s list, after all.
1. the glider: with simple lines and flattering fabric, this chair will be with him for years to come: from your all nighters of rocking that sweet baby boy, to bedtime stories well into the elementary years, middle school, and beyond. I also added this brass reading light (from target): a distinguishing touch.
2. The paint: is a mixture of light tones in grey and blue. When placed on the wall in thick stripes, these colors would truly bring the entire room together with subtle but detailed differences in their color.
4. This crib is probably one of my favorites, with refined lines and a classic shape in a wonderful, almost unexpected material.
5. This nightstand would make the perfect spot beside the glider, to hold knickknacks, books, and everything in between. To grow with him, of course, for years to come.
6. The dresser for this room just feels right. I topped this classic, and contrastingly dark finish off, with these brass pulls from lee valley for a more detailed look. For a touch of shimmer in refined, timeless beauty. Of course it can go from a changing table well into the teen years.
7. This mirror with clean lines would offer a nice contrast when placed above the dresser.
8. The rug offers a soft hue of green for the floor in the room, and a soft space for little bellies to roll and knees to crawl.
9. The fabric for the bedding is one of my absolute faves, and you could use it in about twenty different variations. I think topped off with a surprising, navy blue piping, would truly tie in the accent pillow…a preppy addition I just couldn’t resist adding. Regardless of which combination, (and remember, the same fabrics can be used to tie in a handsome roman shade) the chenille fabric offers a soft resting place for a sweet baby boy. The slightly unexpected combinations of polka dot and seersucker offer a fresh alternative for a baby boy.
If you’ve had a little boy, how did you choose to do his nursery? It’s interesting to me, to see who prefers soft, and who likes it bold. What approach do you like for your own sons’ nurseries?
