Bright + White Nursery Design Board
Hello and happy Monday! I wanted to share with you all a fun little design board I put together for my son's nursery. I'm so excited to finally have a plan put together and I can't wait to show you my ideas! I had been going back and forth about how I wanted to style his room, and before I knew what we were having, I knew I wanted a soft and neutral nursery. Then we found out "it's a boy!" and my plans of soft and neutral were kind of pushed to the side. Suddenly I wanted to add pops of color and make it more fun for him, something he could grow into. So I went back to the drawing board to design a space for him that still provides the neutral look I love, while offering playful pops of color that I know will stimulate his imagination!
So the main inspiration behind the whole nursery is actually the gallery of car pictures. I loved the bright colors on the white frames and these cars were perfect for a little boy's nursery, and I would even argue could be used in his room as he gets older! Win-win! So once I found a color palette I liked in these pictures, it all just came together from there. Since the rest of my house is pretty neutral, I knew that I wanted the nursery walls to be neutral as well so it still flowed with the rest of the house. For paint, I was thinking of doing Classic Gray from Benjamin Moore. Our entire interior is BM paint, so it's safe to say I am a big fan and it was a no brainer when deciding which paint brand I would choose for the nursery! For the furniture I wanted to stay neutral with the exception of the dresser. I am not a fan of things being too "matchy-matchy" so I knew I did not want a white dresser. Instead, I chose this bold navy blue campaign style dresser and I think it is the perfect addition to the space. It's something he can use once he is older (the changing pad topper is removable too!) and adds a masculine touch to the space. To add pops of color, I found a fun print rug that incorporates the same colors in the gallery wall, as well as pops of color in the table lamp, framed print above the crib, the mobile, books that will be displayed on floating shelves, navy curtains to tie in the dresser, and a fun addition with the oversized giraffe! And to complete the look: a fun geometric shaped chandelier.
So what do you think? I hope you love it as much as I do and stick around for the full nursery reveal later this summer! If you're interested in any of the items pictured, I have provided sources below for you (items from Target are affiliate links).
