Nadia Shows Us Her Nursery...

I LOVE looking at nurseries. Even though I don't have any babies of my own, it's always nice to see how people decorate a NURSERY. I've never done it, but one thing I know is that nurseries are NOT what they used to be! I remember when women would choose a PINK room for a girl & a BLUE room for a boy - it was that simple. Nowadays, nursery decor has come a long way!

Moms-to-be are thinking OUT OF THE BOX for their newborn babies - they're deciding on unique color schemes, less Disney & more original artwork instead.

I've been blessed that my ABC customized kids print has been chosen as part of decor for so many kids rooms. In fact I'm definitely seeing A LOT more creativity when it comes to children's rooms & it's always nice to know that the children themselves may pick up on that.





In this post, I'm highlighting a little BOY'S nursery. It's by Nadia of House 36 blog and as you can see...... it's not your typical BLUE room. 




























So, what do you think? Do you prefer creativity in a kids room over the same ol' same ol??




A great book that I'd recommend for inspiration is Rooms For Kids by Susanna Salk & Kelly Wearstler. AND...Thank you Nadia!!

Absolutely! She did a fantastic job and I am LOVING the chevron walls! Great color scheme with the gray/yellow :) For a baby's room, that is quite an impressive closet. It's bigger than what I have right now! Kudos to her!

Totally jealous! Its so darned cute I would never want to leave it. Definitely got some inspiration ideas for my daughter's room, but it will possibly take YEARS to put it all together as I have to do a lot of second hand shopping. But, having a vision is great. She is already a toddler, but she can appreciate something like this for years to come I think!

This is a beautiful nursery...but, as I can see in Nadia´s blog, it is for a boy not for a girl. Anyway, thank you for sharing ! :)

I absolutely adore this colour palette! SAVED for my future nursery inspiration.

Tanya @ Dans le Townhouse said...

Love this nursery. I am on such a grey and yellow kick these days. I blogged about the colour combo twice (TWICE) in the last few days and tonight I finished up a predominantly yellow painting I hope will look nice in my grey bathroom. Mmmm. Yellow and grey.

Cate said...

Such a beautiful space, why would anyone want the same old when they could be creating spaces like this? Just lovely.

Freckles Chick said...

BEST Nursery post I have been in a LONG time...the Chevron wall is FANTASTIC!!!!! Seriously making me want to do that in my little girls room, I just dont think I am willing to put in all that time to paint over it when we move. GREAT JOB and thanks for posting this little piece of inspiration....I just ordered the LOVE print for my little girls room :)

Lily said...

The room is gorgeous. I love the colors...definitely does not look like the typical nursery !!

Thanks all for the kind comments and of course special thanks to Jen for featuring my baby's nursery. It was truly a labor of love and we are so happy with the results. I'm enjoying all the time spend there (and believe me that's a lot of time!)

Shalini said...

What a great nursery...love the mix of colors and patterns.

Maggie ☮ said...

I absolutely adore the creativity in the children's rooms instead of the boring ol blue room with the toy train and simple and expected play toy. I really love the subtle hints of Safari theme in there as well :)

Katia Bonfadini said...

Jen, I´d definitelly pick creativity over that same traditional look. This room is fabulous and I love its colors!!!!

Claire said...

Beautiful nursery! Just curious--what size is the bed you have in the room? We're trying to come up with a good layout for our nursery/guest room and I'm wondering if this might work.

Claire said...

And especially love the chevron wall!

Mapiurka said...

Love colors and the zig-zag wall!!
