Baby Boy Nursery Inspiration

From pretty much the moment I found out I was pregnant, I started pinning away ideas for the nursery for both genders. I will disclose that we know a baby's sex already. We just aren't sharing it publicly on social media quite yet but will be very soon. So, stay tuned!

For Baby Boy, I loved the idea of a slightly zoo-themed nursery. This was really inspired by the giant Melissa and Doug giraffe. I think it is just so fun! Here is my inspiration board for Baby Boy W's nursery.
 I love white furniture and wanted a gender-neutral crib. My favorites are here and here and for a dresser with a changing table topper, I just love this one. It is mature enough that a little boy could grow into it and use it for years to come without being too cutesy or feminine.

I think the Charleston glider from Pottery Barn Kids is just gorgeous. It is way too expensive though so I know in reality, I will purchase something more reasonable since this is something that will only be used for two years or so. I love the idea of using a fabric pouf as an ottoman to add a touch of color. Our nursery is carpeted so I am not planning to purchase a rug but would still like to add a little fun color - I think the pouf is just the thing and they are far less expensive than an ottoman and take up far less space. 

The crib bedding I love is the Nash collection from Pottery Barn Kids. I believe this is new. I love the colors but the crib sheet is my favorite. Here is a closer look via the PBKids website. 
Isn't it adorable? I'm obsessed with Pottery Barn bedding. Our duvet and quilt set is from PB and it has held up beautifully and still makes me smile daily. 

For art, I just fell in love with these zoo animal watercolor prints from Etsy. Etsy has the best baby decor finds. I am happening upon items I love on a daily basis. 

Many of these items will be just inspiration because I want the nursery to be beautiful but also practical and having Pottery Barn create your whole nursery is NOT practical because Baby is not old enough to care where his furniture came from! 

Before I narrowed my choices down, here are a couple photos linked to my Pinterest of boy nurseries that I love. 
So, what do you think - is Baby W a little boy who will be sleeping in a room similar to this or a little lady? 


  1. so precious and classic. I love that Noah bedding! can't wait to see what you've planned if it's a baby girl.

  2. I thought this was you saying it was a boy, and I thought, did I miss the announcement?! haha

    I also love the idea for a pop of color on the ottoman. Very cute!

  3. These unique baskets are made to order and are simply beautiful. They can be ordered from the comfort of your home and delivered to wherever you want them to go.

  4. Extremely intriguing online journal. A lot of web journals I see nowadays don't generally give anything that I'm keen on, however I'm most definitely inspired by this one. Recently felt that I would post and let you know. baby ear protection
