I am SO very excited to finally share Porter’s baby boy nursery with you all! I had most of it done before he was born but was still waiting on some more pieces to arrive and to add some finishing touches. Thankfully I got everything done the first week he was home with the help of Ryan & his mom. When we designed this house we always knew this room would be the nursery, it’s actually where I first told Ryan I was pregnant when it was under construction! I wanted the space to be calming and fit for a baby, but still sophisticated and timeless. I am so happy with how it turned out and will share more bits about the design in today’s post. Also- I will be sharing Porter’s newborn photos next week!

I wanted the overall feel of the room to be light and airy and envisioned a very faint blue/gray on the walls. We ended up going with Benjamin Moore ‘Fanfare’ and I love how subtle it is. I added pops of navy in the window treatments, ottoman, bookshelf and mirror to add some contrast to the room.
When you first walk in the room there is a navy bookshelf filled with so many special items- I love that it’s the first thing you see! We have his letter board from the hospital, a few stuffed animals, a book collection, some baby shoes and a toy basket.
This dresser & topper is by Stella Baby & Child- I love the distressed white finish. We opted for the Keekaroo changing pad because it’s easy to wipe down and you don’t have to worry about washing a cover. On top of the dresser we also have a basket that organizes his diapers, lotion, brushes and creams. Above the dresser we added more navy accents with the round mirror and wall shelf. The silver cup is actually a keepsake from when Ryan was a baby.
I found these zebra and giraffe art prints on Pottery Barn kids and was pleasantly surprised to find out they were painted by an artist local to Charlotte, Kristin Dills! I think the bowties are adorable and underneath we added an elephant rocker and knit basket full of stuffed animals.
Porter’s nursery was so fun to design and is the first “finished” room in our house. He is still sleeping in our room in the bassinet, but I’m excited to transition him to his crib and spend more time with him in this space!
