Our Style

My Son’s Perfectly Untrendy Nursery

It took me eight and a half months to grow a baby inside of me and nearly half that to finish the nursery. #welcometomotherhood I guess. But Gabriel’s room is finally done and I’m so happy with it!

We had a tight budget, so “wisely and creatively” became the designing motto. We used Craigslist and hand-me-downs for a majority of the pieces but where we needed it, we purchased new. Wayfair, in particular, had a great selection of stylish pieces at budget prices.

The inspiration for the room started with one of my father’s early oil-paintings. (He was an artist in his youth). I wanted Gabriel’s room to feel warm and cozy yet vibrant and engaging… just like my father’s painting. We had the cozy thing down before we ever started. (Did you see that room? It’s tiny!) The vibrant and engaging part came about organically. I didn’t reference any trend reports or color forecasts. I just went with my gut and pieced together items that were within our means and I loved instinctually.

Looking at it now, fully complete, I can see that it’s sort of a mash-up and not particularly “on trend”. But that’s exactly what I love about it. You can’t confuse it with any other space. It’s one of a kind and we’re going to have so much fun living, playing and growing in it with Gabriel!

    Lovely! My favorite thing to do in that room is sit in the rocking chair and read books to Gabriel….or rock and sing to him.

    I love your rocking chair! I see them from time to time at antique stores and always admire.
