Our sweet boy’s nursery is done! Aside from a few switches my design plan came to life and I couldn’t be happier. He’s been here for four weeks and after living in the space I can say it’s better than I had even hoped. A calm, serene, neutral space perfect to grow into.
I like my home to feel cohesive and the best way to achieve this is with a color palette. Each room has a similar vibe by keeping the aesthetic and colors/finishes similar. The nursery was no different, so I opted for whites, greige, wood tones and lots of textures for a clean, simple, minimalistic neutral space.
The space before really was a blank slate. We added floor to ceiling board & batten using 1/4″ thick 3″ MDF and added a 4″ trim piece for the top and bottom in place of baseboards. The rest of the room we used our favorite white throughout our home, Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. We also fully customized the closet. More to come on this project in its own post soon.
I gave this IKEA TARVA dresser a makeover by adding 1/4″ lattice molding to the drawers. Spray painted knobs from Hobby Lobby in Rustoleum Metallic Champagne Bronze.
The best way to use all neutrals is to add in texture. I have a lot of white in this space but using texture and variation gives the space dimension. Like the wool rug, curtains, wood dresser – then added warmth with texture and softness with the brass accents.
I love this wood name sign from The Polymath Mom. I painted it the same color as the wall Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter then used very small nails to hang it. We hung the sign from the loops to give it a 3D look popping off the wall and I LOVE it!
I’ll be sure to add to this post once I share the full closet makeover reveal. I’m loving how this charming and super functional space turned out!
