Hello, I’m back! Well, sort of. 😉 We shall see how much I’m able to actually blog in the next couple months as I adjust to caring for two little ones. It’s so busy, but so good.
Today I’m sharing photos of our baby boy’s nursery! I’m thrilled with how it turned out.
Previously, this room was a rarely-used second guest room. It was the only bedroom in the house we hadn’t yet painted, and it needed that and more! Not only did we paint all the walls and the trim, we also ripped out the carpet (it reeked) and replaced it with new carpet. So much better and so much brighter.
My vision for this room was pretty much anything but your typical boy nursery. I wanted something more modern, less boy-ish, and something that could grow with him and potentially be used for multiple children too down the road. Enter: white walls, with black and gold accents.
I didn’t want all of the walls to be white, however. I created an accent wall by painting an abstract black and gold pattern on it – a grounding visual centerpiece for the room without being overwhelming as it’s still very minimalist.
After painting and carpet the rest of the room came together quickly. The furniture was easy to figure out – some new, some handed down from his big sister – and my husband designed handles for the dresser/changing table for it to look like a toolbox. Like father, like son. 🙂
Overall I’m thrilled with how it turned out. Light, airy, and happy. Perfect for our sweet little guy!
