When we found out it was a boy I took the nursery as a project to pour all my excitement and anticipation into! I wanted it to be a soothing room. I considered the idea of a playful room, but as a fanatic of all things old and rustic, I just couldn’t stray away from my vintage style.
I began the enormous task of designing our first baby’s room with none other than an inspiration board of ideas and a color palette. There were a few pieces I just knew I had to have such as the jute chandelier, the wall paper and and a serene sheep mobile. Everything else built upon these elements throughout my research.
One of the main things I wanted to accomplish was a room that would “grow” with baby, and I believe that I accomplished that (minus the crib of course).
I also wanted magical and dreamy touches, that’s why I decided to incorporate a quote from a Disney song on the wooden sign my husband built. I also “carved” Peter Pan out of paper alongside whimsical wording in the pages of a vintage book.
I left the room with a lot of space for Ezra to one day pick and choose things and toys he might want to add, so the room will truly be his own creation.
