Today I thought I'd share some nursery inspiration and see if y'all have any suggestions for me! I had such a hard time coming up with a plan for our baby boy's nursery. Maybe I'm still a little intimidated about being a boy mom? I'm not into the overly boy-ish themes or bright colors so I decided to stick to something somewhat neutral and calming for Rowan's room.
After looking through what seemed like a billion shades of grey paint, I finally narrowed it down. Whew! Our top contenders are Benjamin Moore Grey Owl and Wickham Grey. It really helped that I was able to get some swatches of the bedding and rocker that I like before committing to anything.

I think I want the room to be a cute mixture of old and new details, hence the antique dresser mixed with the modern zinc letter. I love the Pottery Barn rocker so we are trying to go low budget on other items to make up for that!
|Zinc Letter. Braided Basket. Elephant Rocker. Tiered Basket.|
Elephant Print (with changes to coloring). Crib. Star Crib Sheet.
Quilted Bedding. Wingback Rocker.
I'm also loving some of Oh Hello Dear's adorable watercolor elephant prints for the nursery. Though I want to make sure the room doesn't get too theme-y with elephants everywhere you look.
And of course I can't go without a few DIY details for Rowan's nursery! My to-do list includes:
- Wool Felted Star Mobile (Not sure if I can pull this off but I'm going to try, stay tuned!)
- Curtains (White with pom pom trim? Blue? Patterned? AH!)
- Crib skirt
- Fabric bunting (If I can figure out where I'd want to put it)
- Throw pillow for on rocker
There isn't a lot of pattern in this nursery plan so I'm hoping I can find something that will jump out at me for an accent pillow or rug. What do y'all think?!
Mamas- what are some of your must haves for the nursery?! The dresser will double as the changing table so I'll definitely be picking up some drawer organizers for that!
