adam’s nursery

it’s been a long time coming, but i’m finally sharing photos of adam’s nursery! i have no good excuse for why it’s taken so long for me to share this because the room has remained pretty much the same since he was born. as he’s grown, i’ve rearranged things to make the space more appropriate for his level of development, and added a few things here and there, most notably after christmas and his birthday in january, yikes! we originally had a big mid-century style shelf against one wall, but once he was actively reaching for things above his head, i decided that it might be wise to build a shelf up high so he wouldn’t be able pull something down on top of himself. and as he’s grown, i’ve also started to imagine it as more of a play area with little carts full of toys and a tiny wooden kitchen all safely within his reach.

as far as a theme, there really isn’t one. i had originally wanted to go with jungle animals and an aqua blue/mustard yellow color scheme with pops of red here and there. but as i started collecting things, i quickly realized that it would be almost impossible for me to maintain any sort of theme or color story. as soon as i let go of whatever preconceived notion i had about how i wanted the room to look, it just sorta fell together as i picked up the things i liked. in the end, i’d say it has bright and colorful, eclectic, slightly european vibe to it. if we’re going to put a label on it, haha.

above: adam’s beloved hape play kitchen, a classic red radio flyer push bike, lots of fisher price classics, babylit books, and plenty of other bright and colorful delights.

the vintage emmaljunga pram. we don’t use it nearly as often as i thought we would, but i am still so pleased that i found one! that cloub b gentle giraffe, on the other hand, was a lifesaver when adam was an infant!

the print above us is by marrimeko from a few seasons ago.

prints from fine little day and petit collage elephant mobile.

aqua blue velvet glider, the tassel pillow is now out of stock, mini boheme lion pillow, and lucy owl courtesy of hazel village.

the crib is part of the babyletto skip set, and the crib mattress is from naturepedics. the blanket is by blabla from a few seasons back.

i love this p’kolino elephant wall easel! sadly, it has been discontinued.

the babyletto skip dresser. the changing station on top is removable.


  1. I am totally obsessed with the super sweet vintage vibes from this nursery. So much cred to your talents. How cool is that huge roll of paper though?! My one year old would LOVE that. Thank you for the ideas! Have a lovely Easter weekend Erin!

  2. I don’t know how people keep a theme!! I also started with animals and orange/green/blue but it’s impossible to keep out yellow, red, robots, dinosaurs, etc etc etc! And, for a kid, I figure “fun” and “inspiring” are the best themes anyways. Thanks for sharing your little dude’s space!
