A Boy and His Room: An Introduction and Nursery Tour

A Boy and His Room - An Introduction and Nursery Tour

Cassie - TIR

Hello The Inspired Room Readers! Cassie here! I am so excited to catch up with you all! You may have noticed I have been absent these last few months. As many of you may know, we were expecting our second little over the summer, and he (and his spunky sister) have been taking up most of my time. I am beyond thrilled to introduce you to our newest family member: Ashland Rion.

I am just smitten with this tiny man.

A few months ago, I showed you around our daughters new “big” girl room.  We moved her into a bigger room so we could keep the nursery in our smallest bedroom and we wouldn’t have to change a whole bunch, mostly just the decor and a few touch-ups here and there.

We kept the crib, dresser, rocker, and even the rug we had in the room when it belonged to Evie. I would have loved to get around to painting the crib and dresser something different, but as it turns out, painting furniture while pregnant and during the hottest summers in Seattle history was just not something I wanted to do. So white they stayed.

My husband is one of those men that cares greatly about how we decorate and what our home looks like, so I wanted to give him a little say in how we decided to decorate Ash’s nursery. And while I would have probably done a woodland/vintage/rustic nursery, he wanted robots.

Robots, it would seem, are actually quite hard to decorate around. Most of what I found was either way to “cutesy” or rather creepy. I ended up doing more of an “outer space-meets-robots” sort of theme.

Although there are a few more projects I want to finish up (like painting the crib!), I love having a place that feels special and mostly complete where I can do those late night feedings and spend cuddle time with our newest family member.

Until next time!

  1. Congratulations to your family! Ash is beautiful (or handsome, if his daddy prefers)! We have 2 boys and 2 girls, and there is so much to love and laugh about with each “flavor” of baby. I think you did a great job making a cool robot nursery. May you all enjoy many happy days playing there with your little man!

  2. How adorable! I love the woodland theme too, but I think you’ve done a great job with this space! I think if my husband said “robots” I would have gone completely blank, but this turned out great! I’m sure your newest little treasure will love it as he grows :) (although to some degree I think cute nurseries are for the adults anyway…) Thanks for the update Cassie!

    Should discuss the Big Boy rooms too and I do not mean man caves, etc. But my hubby has a big study/library that he goes into and does not come out for hours. It is full of past since retirement and now has things from his present (docent work, etc.). I would hate to be in their during the Big Earthquake with all its pictures and wall art. My study/library is much more sedate and streamlined… oh the glories of not sharing bathrooms or study/library in our city home!!! Goodbye kids’ room- hello home work rooms.

    • Ms. Maggie the Elder says:

      PS does the planets have Pluto? I am leaving the Pluto up in the revamped Hubby study/library. Not going to change everything; I also have a globe from the 1970s…

  4. What an adorable space! Thanks so much for sharing. I love, love, love the quilt! Your newest little one will enjoy such a fun room.


  5. Congratulations! I love everything about this room, and Ashlands porcupine onesie :) What color did you use for his room? It’s gorgeous!

  6. Love the idea of incorporating the robots into a space theme. Very cute!

  7. Congrats! We have a boy due in the first week of December and still have a bit more to set up for the nursery. I love the way you have set everything up with the clean, modern look.

    Hi Cassie! I’m having a boy soon too and would like to know if you have a tutorial on your cute triangle boy quilt?

  9. I love the quilt that you made!!! I am in no way crafty nor can I see to make anything! Any chance you’d be willing to make me that same quilt for my boys?! I’d ovlbcioualy pay for materials as well as your time and shipping!
