Aiden's Nursery {room tour}

I'm so excited to finally be sharing Aiden's nursery with you! This room was a team effort by my husband and I and we had so much fun dreaming of having our baby boy grow up in this room. We wanted to incorporate some of the old treasures from our house like the little red lantern, the rocking horse I had as a little girl and the telescope that Drew's Dad used as a kid, but we also wanted to add some modern touches as well. We didn't want anything to be too themed so we used patterns and textures and kept it simple with neutral wall colors.

Since Drew and I love the outdoors and hope Aiden will too we decided to add some woodland creatures to the room as well to add some pops of color. All the art work was done by my very talented sister in law!

The dresser and changing table belonged to Drew's Dad. Drew stripped the paint and stained them and we added new handles. I love how they turned out and am proud of my husband for persevering when I was ready to kick these pieces to the curb. This room was definitely a labor of love and we are thrilled with how it turned out!

Oh my goodness. I love it! I'm at such a standstill with Pep's nursery, it's driving me crazy. I just keep telling myself that it doesn't need to be totally finished by the time he's born. Also, that mobile is to die for!!!

I love that you incorporated some older treasures and some modern stuff. AND that you didn't get super "theme-y" with the d├ęcor. He'll be able to grow into that room very well.

Anne said...

Oh my gosh, Allison! SO cute. Where to even begin? The rug is so fabulous, the dark blue accent wall is amazing, I love the eclectic mix of artwork and the prints/patterns on all the fabrics, and the special touches of the re-used furniture and the lantern/telescope/etc. are adorable and even better for being meaningful. I would spend all day in here with Aiden - I bet you do :)

I always thought I wanted a little girl for clothes + nursery decorating, but it turns out little boys are actually the best - further evidence here!
