A Preppy Twist: A Little Boy's Nursery

This mommy-to-be and I were instant friends. 
I just love when that happens. 

We had a great first meeting, and subsequent planning, to get going on her baby boy's nursery. 
First on the list: re-paint the walls that obviously belonged to a little girl during the previous homeownership. 

We decided on a soft blue-gray for the walls.

I love the result, and loved working to get things just right. 
Baby Boy will be here in a few short weeks! 


This is one of my favorite cribs. I have had other clients use it too, and I always think its just as handsome as the last time. 

The feel would be soft but preppy, with a bit of a nautical touch via the navy accents and a sweet porthole mirror. 

We also blended a few styles - a la' the Moroccan rug, glam floor lamp, modern glider - which is right up my alley. 

Check out the pics I snapped while installing: 

I love this little gallery wall, and the simple pieces that we chose to reflect the couple's life and interests. The mid-century navy dresser is a super fabo find! 

The shades of blues and grays are so fun for the little guy. Our light turned out great, and gives a nice glow overhead.  I am nuts about the dog art piece too! 

Excited to meet the little one soon! 


  1. I LOVE what you have done here -- so cute, but subtle and not cheesy!
