I still can’t believe how BLESSED I am to be Boone’s mama, and to now get to share his adorable nursery with y’all!! It feels like just yesterday we found out I was pregnant and we were in the midst of this verrrrry long and time-consuming home build, but here we are!! His nursery was such a fun room to build and design because I knew we’d be spending a lot of time in here over the years. I kept the decor clean, simple and a bit rustic and love having a beautiful space that he can add his own personality to as he grows and develops. Welcome to BOONE’S ROOM!!
I’ve never been a fan of carpeted floors, because if something spills/stains it, it’s game-over. Plus I like switching up my decor and colors and didn’t want to commit to one carpet for a long period of time, so I decided to use this dreamy, rustic flooring from Hallmark Floors (in the color “Malibu” from the Alta Vista Collection) with an area rug that I can trade-out as needed. The wood floors are the perfect color to give warmth to the room, while being dark enough to hide dirt and light enough not to show dust and hair. We used this through-out our entire home and we could not be happier with it.
Cue Piper, the O.G. baby, thinking she needs her own room/blog post…
I found this Relic Batten crib in Fossil from Milk Street Baby and knew it was perfect for our boy’s nursery furniture. Once he’s ready to make the big boy bed switch (I’m fine, it’s fine, not crying at ALL) we will be able to transition his crib into the same sort of bed that Leni has in her room!! It’s amazing quality and was the exact look we were going for. It looks so cool and rustic playing off Boone’s accent wall and the Alabaster paint from Sherwin Williams (in the color “Agreeable Grey“) on his other walls!
Like I said with Leni’s room, I didn’t want a lot of window treatments throughout the house because natural light is LIFE when you can’t actually be outside, but some rooms obviously needed them for privacy or darkness (nap, please, Boone?!) so Benchmark Shutters offered sleek roller shades that you barely notice until you close them. They’re also amazing because they have an automatic rod to open and close them, so there aren’t dangerous, unseemly chords hanging everywhere. Besides, who would want to cover these GORGEOUS Pella Windows up?! They’re Energy-Star rated and I can’t recommend them enough as they give off the perfect light for his room. When it’s warm out, (looking for you, North Carolina spring and summer!!) we’ll switch on his fan (a 52″ Monte Carlo Prairie II in the color Aged Pewter) from Circa Lighting!! Speaking of rustic, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fan. It looks like a windmill that you’d see on a farm and is the perfect addition to his room decor, plus if I turn it on the lowest speed, it’s basically a giant mobile that Boone watches until he falls asleep.
All of Boone’s furniture came from Milk Street Baby, including his changing table/dresser situation. We love it for the same reason we love his crib from them–they’re classic, well-made pieces that will grow WITH him! He has a closet across the room (shout-out to California Closets for making ALL of my organized-closet-dreams come true!) but right now he’s just a nugget and his everyday stuff goes in this dresser. I also snagged a changing pad/scale and I’m obsessedddddd because it has a built-in scale to see how chunky Boone is, it blends with the room and is super easy to wipe down. I also threw in a (faux) fiddle fig tree in my favorite basket in the corner.
Boone’s the coolest baby boy I know (not at all biased, obviously) and this reclaimed wood accent wall from Montana Ghostwood is something I felt set his room apart in the BEST way. I wanted the look of rustic, reclaimed wood but I didn’t want to commit to the price of the real-deal material/installation so I found these wall decals for half the price that are reclaimed wood boards, but they stick right onto the wall! It was SO easy to install and they look awesome and come in various shades. We used the color, “Silver City” and painted the wall behind the boards “Tricorn Black” by Sherwin Williams, so that we wouldn’t see any wall color through the small gaps in the wood. I also added his name in these galvanized letters to complete the wall. We plan to use the same stick-on reclaimed wood upstairs in Tim’s office, in about 10-15 years when we eventually have spare time again.
In addition to all the cool stuff above, I linked a few of my favorite adorable baby items and necessities below, too!
I also get asked alllll the time about my favorite gear for babies/Boone, and wanted to link these for mamas and littles on the go!!
