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!

5 Modern Non-Themed Baby Nursery Room Designs

Today I thought I would answer a frequently asked question. I not only get this question from readers, but many of my young mama friends designing baby nurseries! Inquiring readers want ideas for modern baby nurseries that are sweet, but aren’t too themed or juvenile and would grow with the child.

So today I thought I would gather up some inspiration rooms for those of you new mamas (and grandmas!) working on baby nurseries! These are exactly the kinds of rooms I’d design if I was having more babies (wahhhh! no more for me until we have grandbabies, but I LOVE babies so I would have babies forever if I could keep up with more haha).

To create a one-of a kind room, you don’t need to shop at the traditional baby shops either! Babies don’t need themed nursery sets (unless you want them) to have a memorable room, you can create a space for a baby that reflects styles you love.

These rooms are great examples of adorable designs for baby that don’t scream the usual nursery themes.  They would be beautiful in any home and your baby will be able to grow with the design elements of the room long after the crib is put away.

I think if you add whimsical or fun details like pom pom trim, soft touchable rugs, adorable wallpaper, striking light fixtures and fun curtains in whatever colors you love and some great baby items like rockers for mama and plush toys for baby, you’ll have just the right elements for a perfect baby nursery.

And while we are on a baby theme (and since I personally know many mamas with babies entering the world right now!) our own adorably pregnant friend Cassie will be here Wednesday to share a simple DIY baby gift you can create for a special baby!
