Inspiration for Decorating your Baby Boy NurseryBaby Name Blocks

When we moved into our new apartment, I didn’t know if Baby Brooks would be a boy or girl, so much like Reese’s initial nursery, I started by creating a grey and white room filled with all grey and white decor. I choose all white nursery furniture: the Bloom Alba Mini Crib from Giggle, the 3-Shelf Cameron bookcase from Pottery Barn Kids, the Skylar Dresser Changing Table from Pottery Barn Kids, the Claiborne White Floor Lamp from Kenroy Home, the grey Ubbi diaper pail, and lastly we recycled Reese’s grey rocking chair {similar here}. We also put a twin sized bed in the room complete with grey and white polka dot bedding with matching pillows.

Once Baby Brooks arrived, I accessorized to really make the room his own! I started by ordering custom grey and white chevron totes {with his name embroidered} at Pottery Barn Kids to organize his baby blankets, towels and burp pads. Then for the nursery artwork, I wanted something very sweet and simple, so I fell in love with three prints by Creative Thursday. I had them framed with beautiful white frames by the company Framed and Matted.

Some other adorable baby nursery decorating ideas included decorating the top of his bookshelf with an array of plush blue and white stuffed animals; my favorites being ones from Jelly CatBla Bla Kids, and Pottery Barn Kids. On the next shelf I arranged his collection of blue and white piggy banks, my favorite: the Little Prince. Lastly, for bed time snuggles, I sandwiched some of our favorite books between white Jonathan Adler Dachshund Bookends.

  1. i notice in both your nurserys you have also put a twin bed in the room- what is your reasoning behind this? is this the bed they will transition to or is this for you or the baby nurse?

    1. Hey Kelly, I had a twin bed in our first baby’s room for the baby nurse we had the first two months. Then for my son we just had the extra bed since we didn’t have a nurse, which was nice for lounging or middle of night feeds. Eventually when my daughter was ready for a big girl bed we moved it out!
