I am so, so happy to share our son’s nursery with you all today! It has been my favorite design project ever. As soon as I started, I knew I wanted to create something neutral and airy. If I could sum up in a few words the feeling I wanted this nursery to have, it would be clean + tranquil. The past few months that I’ve spent working on this space, have been the most incredible for me. The chance to set up another area in our home where I’d bring my 3rd baby was a little surreal. Sometimes it still doesn’t feel entirely real that he’s here in my arms, but I’m so incredibly thankful for these moments we have in his room, just the two of us.
Anyway, I spent so much time working with all of these incredible brands to bring my vision to life and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. All of the sources are noted directly at the bottom of this page. The best thing to do is note which items you’re interested in on a postie so you can alleviate a lot of back and forth scrolling. If you have any additional room questions I didn’t cover in the post, I am happy to answer in the comments. But let’s get back to the decor for now …
I had fallen in love with these birth posters a few years ago and couldn’t wait to put one in my next nursery. I’m so obsessed with how it turned out. I remember weeks before he was born, I would sit on their website and imagine what his birth stats would be. What day? What time? How big? I literally ordered it during our hospital stay and the day it arrived, I cried happy tears. Needless to say, I think this will be a badge of honor hanging in his room for years to come.
I had a big and bulky rocker with matching ottoman for the boys and although it looked plush and pretty, it was SO uncomfortable. I ended up nursing them in every other room, other than their nurseries. This time around, I did a lot of research and found that the Sleepy-time Rocker from Nursery Works not only was one of the most aesthetically pleasing pieces around, but was also the comfiest. I’m happy to report that it’s 100%. I’d rather feed Cason in this chair then anywhere else in our home and I’m planning on moving it into our main living area when we’re done with it in the nursery. Luckily it’s better looking than half my living room furniture, so it will be more than welcome in the space.
It was important to me to have a space he could grow into and I wanted to be very conscientious with the toys we brought in considering with our other two, we literally have every toy under the sun. I wanted the items to be from small shops knowing they’d be thoughtful and hand-made. Heirloom quality that could stand the beating of 3 boys and a teething toddler when the time came. Two of my favorites, the wood horse and the pull along duck are from a European Children’s Toy brand, Happy Go Ducky. I pretty much love all of the wooden toys they have on their site and the quality is top-notch. My Hudson gave them a run for their money before Case arrived and I’m happy to report, they’re still as good as new.
We’re lucky in the fact that both of our kids’ rooms have pretty large closets with enough room to store their full-sized dressers inside. I went with a double dresser from DaVinci for Cason’s, with plenty of room for storage both now and later. I like being able to store all of his extra diapers, wipes, and swaddles in the spare drawers after fitting his pants, shorts and pajamas toward the top. The drawers seem extra deep to me, so there’s room to spare. The bins at the top I use to store all those extra nursery items that seem to kind of just float around. We actually built the dresser into the closet so we didn’t have to remove the doors.
