A Preppy Twist: A Little Boy’s Nursery

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! 
BEFORE: 
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!
