Baird’s Cream and Brown Striped Neutral Baby Nursery

When Maggie started preparing for the birth of her little boy, she knew right away that we wanted the nursery to be different. “Our decorating style in general is eclectic and mismatched so it was our goal from the beginning to make the nursery feel warm and inviting and not too baby. We also knew that we wanted it to be gender neutral. We want our kiddos close together and I can’t justify redecorating each time we have a baby.” She decided to go with a gender neutral color scheme for Baird, with lots of coral red, blue, green, white, and of course splashes of other color.

“My best advice to any expectant parent who is trying to decorate their nursery is to not be too matchy matchy. Look for things that inspire you and that you think are beautiful and put them in the room.Mixing and matching is what gives a room character.” The crib is a Jenny Lind that Maggie purchased off of craigslist for $40. It was originally stained mahogany and she painted it a pretty shade of coral. “The bedding was all made by my wonderful mother and mother-in-law. I picked out all of the fabrics and found a pattern at hobby lobby.”

The changing table is an antique dresser which was from her in-laws. She thought about painting it but decided that the original color wood added character and warmth to the room. The pillows on the couch were also made with the fabric from the bedding.

“The rocker is one of my favorite pieces in the room because it was my granddads’. It was originally green, yellow and brown and it was dated. It was in my mom’s room growing up. We had it recovered in the blue and white striped fabric and I just love the way it turned out. I love that my mom had it in her room growing up. My grandparents were so special to me so knowing that it was a piece of their life and their history is special.”

The window treatments are paint drop cloths from Lowes. “I used a stencil to give it a little detail and used the coral paint again. All of the artwork in the room are things that I printed offline. We absolutely love the way the room came together and for the past 16 months Baird has seemed to love it as well.”

“Repurpose, repurpose, repurpose. So many of the things in our nursery are repurposed. When you repurpose you can save a lot of money. We bought the crib off of craigslist, we used the couch that was previously in our sunroom, the rocker was from my grandparents, the changing table from my in-laws… you get the picture. Use things that you have a love and heck when you need something, go buy something you love.”
