The day after we got home from the hospital, I spent the whole morning in our new baby boy’s nursery! We put the bedding in his crib, added books and bookends to the desk, picked an accent color and brought ‘boy’ into the neutral room! I’m currently working on the wall space above his crib and desk but even though his room isn’t complete, I’m so excited to show it off! And even more excited to fill all of the picture frames with the new photos from our session with
Robin Kimberly Photography (<– Check her out; she’s amazing!)
Welcome to Mario’s Nursery
One of my favorite things about this room is that the furniture doesn’t all match. I knew early on in my pregnancy that I wanted white furniture in the nursery so Brian refinished 2 older pieces we had and they turned out perfect!
Nursery Tip: Using different style furniture, colors and woods throughout a room gives the room more depth and texture.
This is the first nursery I’ve done that has a desk in it but I love it and can already envision Mario coloring and reading his books in that space.
And yes, I’m fully prepared for the crayon markings that are to come on the white wood! No, I don’t care; it will give this space character ; )
Nursery Tip: Choose an accent color and add pieces around the room in that color.
In Mario’s room, I chose orange as an accent color. I found an orange throw, a candle, an orange monkey, this little plate, a towel hook with orange in it and other little touches to complete his room!
Mario’s bedding is from PBKids and was originally part of Roman’s nursery (3 years ago). I love it! It’s from Pottery Barn Kids and I’ve always been happy with the quality of their items! This set must have been popular too because PBKids kept it in their Baby Boy Collection and have added more items since (such as a monkey rug shown in 1st photo, wall decals and other accessories)!
