Press: Jackson’s Nursery Reveal

Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.

Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.

A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.

    Beautiful! What color did you use on the walls?

    1. Caitlin

      By Farrow & Ball called Cornworth White. One of my favorites! Definitely use two coats though.

    I love this nursery! I have a few of the same pieces and have been on the hunt for a dresser my little guy can grow into… where did you find this one? Thanks! SL

      Hi Stephanie, the dresser is from Land of Nod. It’s amazing! Love that they sell changing trays to go on top. I highly recommend it!

      Ginny – It’s by Farrow & Ball called Cornworth White. One of my favorites! Definitely use two coats though.

    Can I ask where you got the floating shelves? These are perfect. I did a similar nursery for my little one (baby girl–now 19 months)–grey walls, all white furniture, S&L bedding with pale pink accents.

    This post was just what I needed!! Not sure if you’ll be seeing any responses/questions from this anymore but I would love to know (and this is so small and random) where that little owl on the chair came from!!
