Oh Boy!

You are probably wondering when I am going to be done with this room by room interior design idea, right? Well my plan is to go room by room and show you ideas (whether they are over the top=expensive- or just simple=affordable.) Hopefully you can take something from each of these post and I won't bore you with it in the process.
Now onto today's post....

Do you remember the movie Father Of The Bride II? 

It is a classic in my book. My husband and I sat down one night and started flipping through the channels and we landed on this movie. We had seen it a hundred times before but it is one of those movies you can watch over and over again and laugh at every time. When it came to the nursery scene I just loved it. I thought the room was great for either a boy or girl and the light yellow/neutral tones were calming.

If you haven't guessed yet-- the room today is a babies nursery. But not just any baby room, I am specifically talking about boy rooms.

This post is for moms-to-be who haven't settled on a design for there baby-to-be.

The design of the beautiful modern nursery above was inspired by the Alphabet crib bedding by Dwell and created by the homeowners. The walls were painted in soft shades of blue - Cumberland Fog, Little Dipper and Silver Strand. My favorite element in the room is the wall mural. It was created on the computer, projected on the wall and then hand painted. The white & espresso crib and dresser are by Babi Italia Scandi style. The chocolate brown rocker and ottoman are by Wendy Bellissimo. 
Do you recognize these names?Trista and Ryan Sutter - yep, the couple from the Bachelorette reality TV show . They  worked with Green Nest to help them create an eco-friendly nursery for their baby boy. They selected no VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint, carpet, furniture and bedding. The large vertical striped wall with baby blue horizontal accent is really striking.
This darling beach inspired nursery for twin boys (if you can see the beds next to each other on the left hand side) was designed by Little Crown Interiors out of Southern California. Custom Serena & Lily bedding was created for the two white cribs. The chocolate brown double-width rocking chair by Little Castle Furniture is perfect for a mom with multiples! It also coordinates nicely with the custom drapes and changing table by Newport Cottages.This collection of colorful sand shovels and starfish pillow is perfectly beachy, but not over the top.
 I love to pull inspiration from Pottery Barn Kids, and usually I choose bolder or brighter colors for my boys rooms but this sheep nursery was just too sweet to pass up. It's a wonderful neutral color scheme that would work for either gender. I particularly like the PBK Larkin Fixed Gate Sleigh Crib that was inspired by the beautifully carved beds of French royalty. The whimsical Camilla Goldleaf Chandelier adds another natural element and warm light to the room. The appliqued Sweet Lambie Nursery Bedding is not only cute, it's made of organic cotton. Love that.

Hopefully these ideas will inspire you if you are in the process of decorating a baby boy's room. Stay tuned for next weeks inspiration room: baby girls....
