ORC || Week 1: A Global Gents Nursery

1:07 AM

I'm beyond excited to start my first ORC guest participant journey! This challenge is perfect timing as I'm having a baby boy this August and the nursery needs to be done! A HUGE thank you to Linda at Calling it Home for hosting the One Room Challenge and making this opportunity possible for guest participants like me;) 
For the first week, I'm keeping it simple  and starting off with my inspiration - all the eye candy is from the lovely Judy Aldridge at Atlantis Home
I love everything that Judy does and her style has heavily influenced me to go bold in my little man's nursery. Check out her entry in this picture. I love the mix the persian rug with the african masks, bold artwork and leather chairs.
I can't get over her killer style! Right?!! Her ability to mix patterns, colors and styles is what leaves me drooling. 

When designing a space, I don't source a ton of images, designers or styles but with this room I knew I wanted to go with something bold and different. I want the room to read masculine, curated, well traveled and eclectic. So I knew I would need to channel Judy- because she does it all so well! 
Here is the nursery room before picture- a nice blank canvas;) I plan to keep the walls a neutral color and bring in lots of color and design in the fabrics, furniture and artwork. 

My mood board is slowly coming together and next week I'll layout how I plan to tackle this 6 week project. Lots of fun details to come! So check back next Thursday for updates and sources!!

Meanwhile, make sure to check out the featured designers and other guest participants HERE 

As always, Thank you, thank you to the One Room Challenge and my lovely sponsors below- without whom this room would not be fabulous! While some of the pieces in the room are sponsored all thoughts & opinions are my own.
