Classic not cutsie

Those are the words that my co-worker described when talking about how she wanted the nursery for her little boy to look. 

When I asked her what she liked she said: "brown & blue, stripes, damask, and dark furniture- more classic than modern.  I want it less baby looking and more baby, toddler, little boy- something he can grow into."

So off to work I went and this is what I came up with



pharmacy lamp, chair, ABC LOVE print Made by Girl, drapes, lamps, striped baskets, rug, gold pouf, crib, bear, dresser and bookcase are both craigslist finds.

I think this is a space that both Mom and Baby would be happy with for the long run.  Let's hope she likes it!

I love it! I agree that classic baby rooms are much better; I can't stand rooms that are overly baby-fied!

Looking back, a nursery is a special time but so short lived. I love grown up looking baby rooms. All the cutsie cannot out live good classic lines. Love your design. Babies love mobiles and music....so you may want to add that....for what it is worth!

I think a lot of folks are starting to go this route. I love it! Those golden yellow curtains are just divine. Is that Dwell fabric?

Beyond great, not cute at all but welcoming! This is definitely the way people are going with many nurseries these days! Love the drapery fabric with the lamps and the patterned rug. Janell
