ORC WEEK 6 || REVEAL WEEK- Little Boy Blue's Nursery

6:41 AM

Ahhhh It's Reveal Week!! Thank you to the One Room Challenge for hosting this fun 6 week adventure. It's been a whirlwind these past few weeks and I'm thrilled to show you brothers global nursery.
Let's get the tour started!

The theme for the nursery: a global little gents room came together naturally. It also has a "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" vibe. The blue is obvious but I started realizing that while I have lots of new pieces the room is filled with vintage finds and borrowed treasures. The borrowed pieces- books, toys & clothing that were mine or my husbands from when we were children. I love the story that each pieces tells!

The view when you open the door. I thought getting this shot in front of the windows was going to do me in! It was beyond hard for this novice photog;)

I love how the ceiling paint brings an extra element to the room! Thanks to Color Consultant, Thomas Mach, for suggesting this vibrant Farrow & Ball color. He answered every question we had about what sheen to order, what brushes to use, how to prime the ceiling & the list goes. He is so helpful and knowledgable. Want to know more about the process and Farrow & Ball paint? I talk about all that in Week 4 of the challenge HERE or you reach out to Thomas.
The oriental Rug set the tone for the colors of the room. I found it about 2 years ago in Dallas and have been trying to find a spot for it ever since! It has so many vibrant colors and was a perfect fit as I wanted the nursery room to be colorful.

A huge thank you to Lamps Plus for this lovely nursery seating area! The chair and drapes I already had and are a vintage chinoiserie Ralph Lauren pattern. I love how the ottoman and sea grass side table work with the brass reading lamp and blue chair.

I can't wait to cozy up with brother in this comfy spot! This tufted ottoman and reading light make it the perfect spot to read books and lounge with baby boy.

I loved treasure hunting for this room! The vintage toys really make the room come alive and bring out the colors of all the other furniture pieces.

Each time I design a space I always check in with my friend Bianca - she knows me! She knows my style and I love bouncing ideas around with her.  Designing this room pregnant was tough. I felt like my brain was at half capacity and I struggled to make decisions. I'm so thankful for her help and for all the times she talked me off the design ledge ha ha!!

Thanks to Bianca, who suggested these walnut stained shelves from Target! They were the perfect depth to be able to display books and vintage toys. Some of the books were my husbands and mine from when we were children. I repurposed this antique coal bin for toy storage. 

I wanted a touch of green in the room and thanks to the Sparrow Studio for creating these hanging wall plant baskets! The hand woven baskets are the perfect home for these little succulents.

My favorite view in the room thanks to this repurposed antique chinese buffet- now changing table & vintage artwork. This was our only DIY project- thank goodness. My husband added 7 inch legs to the piece to make it tall enough to be a changing table. It was formerly the TV stand;)

The artwork on the bottom right was painted by my dad when he was 10! All the other pieces in this shot are vintage (minus the baskets) The large yellow toy basket is from Target's opal house collection. The wall baskets and set of 5 nesting baskets are from The Sparrow Studio.

The placement for each piece in the room was a struggle. The artwork anchored the crib (a framed vintage poster- with Lamps Plus Picture Light) and figuring out the best spot for it took lots of furniture moving.

I tried every option possible! I moved the crib to several different positions but ultimately loved it here best. I talked a ton about this in my Insta stories and got the most amazing feedback. Thank goodness for crowd sourcing;)

Check out the play gym from Lovevery Baby. It has one year of play all in one spot.

This metal crib was a last minute addition as we had a crib but, after moving cross country in September, the parts were misplaced. So it worked out well that I found this brass beauty on Amazon! The stunning diaper bag, on the right, is made of hand woven Dhaka fabric by women in Nepal. Find it HERE 

How handsome are these pillows from Boho Luxe Home? The tie dye shibori print pillow in front matches our powder bathroom wallpaper and the navy velvet pillow has a stunning trim and tassel.

My favorite part of the 6 week challenge was the styling. This antique mirror was the perfect pair with the wood shelf my father made years ago. The little shoes on the shelf were my husbands when he was an infant.

How fabulous is that brass electrical cover?? Liberty Hardware made the  little details in this room come to life. The grey basket, from target, will be great blanket storage and currently also holds my Heritage Plaid Solly Baby Wrap- the softest wrap I've ever felt!

The vintage peg rack holds brothers new digs from Janie & Jack- find the collared onesie HERE and the striped onesie HERE, as well a bonnet that my husband wore when he was babe. I can't wait to see brother in his new little outfits. 

Added bonus- the view in the mirror of the vintage pagoda chandelier and blue ceiling!

I'm always surprised at how all the little details come together! We stained the shelf to work with he other dark wood pieces in the room. How fun is that little sail boat!?

Can you believe this is where we started out??!! It's been a complete transformation. I can't wait to do another room;) Thank you for following me on this crazy journey!! Don't miss the source list below!

      You have created such a wonderful fresh space for your son with your classic streetflea signature style. I can’t stress enough how wonderful it is to follow a blogger, decorator, home curator and vintage ombudsman such as yourself. It’s so boring to watch as blog after blog and insta decor account after account meld into one big trend. Thank so much for inspiring everyone to color outside the lines, to connect with their space and say this is me �� excited to follow you on more decorating journeys your Swedish based cheerleader/Julia @wifinpoofvintage
