Neutral Baby Boy Nursery Inspiration

Hi friends!! I hope you all had a fun Fourth of July! It's been a whirlwind two weeks between traveling and a crazy busy day job, so I'm excited to finally carve out a little time for this space... even if it is well past my bed time as I write this!

I've had lots of requests for some nursery inspiration and summer maternity favorites, so that's what I've got on deck for you this week!

As you guys know, I thought for sure this little babe was a girl so it was quite a shock to hear baby number two is a boy! I really hadn't thought much about how I'd design another boy's nursery, but I knew we'd be keeping all of the furniture from Rowan's room regardless of the gender.

You can see Rowan's original nursery in our old house here!

So this time around my starting point was the furniture and this sweet wood sign that reminds me so much of Rowan (the quote is from Winnie the Pooh- you may remember our little Christopher Robin last Halloween!) and I thought it was perfect for a boy's room! I fully expect a house full of boys to be quite the adventure... in a good way!
The next thing I found, which I highly recommend looking for if you're kind of in the dark on nursery color schemes or design, is a fabric swatch in this precious French grey buffalo check print from Carousel Designs. I saw it in Elise's sweet nursery here and knew I wanted to use it in either Rowan's big boy room or the new nursery.

So what's staying in the room? 

The dresser, crib (my grandma got this for Rowan and I will always cherish it so much), and our favorite rocker. I'll probably keep the bookshelves as well.

What am I adding? 

All of the details! It'll get a new paint job taking the walls from light grey to white, a rug with some color, a new nightstand, a mirror, pom trim curtains, and the sweetest Petit Pehr mobile. I'm also going to rearrange the furniture in the room to switch it up a bit.

I know the design seems a little grown up but I promise I'll find an art print (maybe this one?) and other little decor pieces like wooden toys and add to his already growing stuffed animal collection!

We're so excited for this little guy (whose name I think we may have finally decided on... yay!) and I'm just hoping we can get this space ready for him in time!! The biggest hurdle will be getting Rowan's big boy room ready to go before we can do anything... will share some inspiration for that room soon.

So what do you guys think? How should I incorporate some art prints?!

    A big wood sign with a saying was the first thing I found and fell in love with for Finn's nursery too! Love it so much.

  4. This is literally exactly what I would do for a boy! Love everything about it and can't wait to see it come to life!
