Baby Of The World Nursery

by Gillian

I have some exciting news to share…I’m going to be an aunt to a baby boy who will be arriving around Halloween. I am super excited to meet him but also excited because my brother and sister-in-law have asked me to design the nursery. For those of you who do not know my sister-in-law is from Shanghai, where my brother met her, and they both love to travel so we’ve come up with a theme “Baby of The World” for the nursery.  Here’s a peak at the style board I’ve come up with:

I found these adorable crib sheets that were the inspiration for the color scheme.

The walls are being painted Benjamin Moore Breath of Fresh Air 806, and I found a great light blue and cream chevron rug that is going to work perfectly. I am going to hack an Ikea Expedit bookcase and turn it into a storage bench underneath the window for all the toys, as well as transforming an Ikea Malm dresser into a campaign style changing table. Above the crib we’re going to install a huge map of the world similar to this one so my nephew can dream of his future travels around the globe.

I’ll be posting updates on my DIY projects and of course the reveal when we’re through!
