Elegant Boy’s Travel Themed Nursery

May 5, 2021

When you first take a look at these photos, I highly doubt they would scream “Travel Themed Nursery” — and that was intentional! When I was deciding what I wanted to do for Gavin’s room, I knew I wanted it to be similar to Landon’s nursery in terms of colors and decor, but different enough that it could be his own.

I first selected the furniture and designed the rest of the room around it. With both the furniture and the walls being a soft grey, I knew I needed to add in some color — enter the curtains! I toyed with the idea of doing something custom, but the cost was out of budget and I was so excited when I found these at IKEA! If I told you the full story about finding and getting these just right, you probably wouldn’t believe me, so let’s just say it was quite the adventure. I had a professional tailor add on a blackout liner from Amazon and my mom and sewed the pleats in the top.

My favorite part of the whole room, however, has to be the watercolor alphabet that I had commissioned from a fantastic artist, The Prints and the Pea, on Etsy! I’ve worked with Mollie several times over the years and her work is always phenomenal. I couldn’t find anything like what I was picturing, so I reached out to her on a whim. Let’s just say this exceeded every expectation! Pictures of pictures don’t always come out the best, so trust me when I say this is even more beautiful in person!

If I was being totally honest, I would say this is just a gender-neutral nursery with no real theme; I did tie in a few travel items — globes, planes, and clouds — throughout the space to give it a bit of personality, but overall I just enjoy the subtleness of the space as it will easily transition from nursery to big boy room faster than I can imagine. So cheers to soaking up all the baby cuddles for as long as possible!
