The Girl’s Room Becomes the Nursery

For the first time since 1928 Beechwood will be home to a baby. So, as my due date nears (just a little over a month at this point!) all the pieces have come together to turn the old “girl’s” guest room into a nursery for our sweet boy.

We started with an orange, grey and white color palette and everything else evolved from there.


An Ikea storage unit fills one wall and is full of all sorts of goodies. Some vintage globes and a sailboat sit atop and the shelves are filled with books, stuffed animals, and some airplane models.


The baby & gender announcement card made on one of the library cards from our wedding sits on a shelf. The bear that Christian’s Mom hand knit sits behind it.


The wall along the closet has a vintage dresser refinished by Christian, our changing pad with a Land of Nod polka dot cover, and some awesome baby animal photos from The Animal Print Shop.


A baby zebra, lamb, monkey, and lion hang above the dresser.


Crib view! The Olivia Mod crib was a gift from Nicole’s parents and the herringbone rug is from Urban Outfitters. The artwork is from Etsy and the Ferndale DIY fair.


The rocker is a vintage reproduction, the heart pillow is from Etsy, the knit pouf from CB2, the cloud lamp from Land of Nod, and the side table and curtains from Target.


The wooden Michigan cut out hangs above the crib and is from Etsy.


The globe mobile is one of my favorite pieces in the room!


We’re very happy with the room and can hardly wait for its occupant to arrive!

Many of the items in the nursery were purchased for us at our various baby showers by family and friends and we can’t thank you enough for helping the room come together!

  2. Do you mind me asking where you got that stunning globe mobile?! I’ve been looking for something similar for a long time!!

    Hi Christian!

    Would you mind telling me what shade of gray you used to paint the credenza in your baby’s room? Also curious about whether you stripped the wood before painting?

    I’m about to undertake a similar project for a nursery here in NYC and would love some pointers!

    Thanks so much, and what a BEAUTIFUL home you have.

    Lovely room. I especially love the dresser/buffet. It’s a very mellow color palette and not too over the top. Great job.

    We live in a tudor style home and I have been looking for restoration ideas from other homeowners. Your Michigan artwork caught my eye, because we happen to live in Michigan. We actually live in Royal Oak not to far from Beverly Hills. It’s so awesome to see someone else who loves their tudor home as much as we do. 🙂
