Jackson's Gray Striped Nursery with Orange Accents

Here it is!  Our little guy's room - ready and waiting for him to show up any day now!

We hope he loves it just as much as we do....his daddy and I sure had fun getting it ready for him.  Before we even knew we were having a boy, I'd looked at a ton of great sites for nursery inspiration and had ideas picked out for either a boy's or girl's room [isn't it crazy in a way, to think of how minimal our own nurseries likely were "back in the day" and how overboard we want to go for our precious babies on the way now?!  Times have changed!  Anyway, this nursery, featured on Project Nursery was a big inspiration and a starting place for the route I wanted to go!  I added a lot of fun pieces, custom built-ins and pops of color and made it my own!  The hubs and I have spent a lot of hours in there over the past 9 months [some of it working on the room, obviously, but most of it just sitting in there staring at every thing in amazement thinking "OUR baby boy will sleep in this crib....soon!" or "OUR baby boy will be rocked to sleep in this rocker a thousand times over"]. I'll never forgot when we got the rocker/glider home and my sweet husband asked me to come in there and sit on his lap so he could rock both of his babes!  Before I get all crazy emotional and sentimental [I'm 9 months preggo - this happens easily!], I'll leave you with this fun quote and some not-at-all-professional photos of our mini's room!  Enjoy! :)

Note:  I've received a handful of emails asking for various details / specs from the photos I posted previously of his room, and since I'll be a tad bit preoccupied in the weeks to come, I thought I'd go ahead and post all the info below now in case I'm slowwww to respond to emails! :)
 






 













**ROOM DETAILS** 
CribBratt Decor "Dick" Crib [great name for a crib, eh?!]  
Dresser - Ikea "Hemnes" 8-drawer dresser in white (note - it's an off white)
Console Table with Baskets & Orange Storage Boxes - Ikea "Hemnes" sofa table in white with these handwoven baskets and these orange storage boxes.
Frames above changing table/dresser -  CB2's gallery frames
Elephant and giraffe orange prints - custom, from A Vintage Poster [I highly recommend this store!]
Abacus - found here, also from CB2 [probably my very favorite thing in the room....until the mini arrives that is!].
Orange elephant piggy bank - Urban Outfitters
Hamper - Seagrass Hamper from Target
Curtains - Ikea - hubby's going to have to help w/ this one.  The tag on the curtains is way high up there and I'm far to big to be climbing on anything!  Ha!
Teal bucket with receiving blankets in it - Target!
White Side Table - Target
Orange Throw - Ikea Ritva Throw
Labrador Pillow  - Serena & Lily Buddy Pillow  - in hindsight, I regret buying this as the labrador on the pillow doesn't really go with the room and it was a splurge at $88.

**PAINT DETAILS**
BEDROOM----
White Stripe:  custom, mixed in Benjamin Moore Aura Collection [and by custom I mean that I found a white I liked from one of our 27 trips to Home Depot or Lowes and didn't keep the name of it, so I had the paint matched at Benjamin Moore]  

Gray Stripe:  Gray Owl, Benjamin Moore Aura Collection


Stripe Width:  12.5" [I found several great articles online about "how to paint the perfect striped walls"].  Cason taped off everything and his painters painted.  We love the final look.


CLOSET---- (slightly darker gray than in the room)
Coventry Gray, Benjamin Moore Aura Collection

Oh my goodness, it's fabulous! I absolutely love what you've done with his nursery. The colors, the decor, the striped walls - everything! I am mega jealous of the amazing closet you have!

We are also doing a Bratt Decor crib and the Ikea hemnes dresses in our little girl's nursery. I'm glad to see the white shades work together so well!

Can you tell me where you found the boxes/organizers you used inside the dresser drawers? They look like they fit well and I'd like to find something similar.

It looks amazing!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

So I totally missed this post. O.M.G. This nursery is BEAUTIFUL!! Total nursery envy over here. Your stripes look gorgeous and so professional?? Did you do them? We did vertical stripes and half of them look wavy if you look close enough. Oh well. The babes doesn't seem to mind. :)

Bravo!! I absolutely adore this! You did an amazing job. I know this seems crazy, but where did you find those great drawer organizers? I have a changing table with a deep top drawer and have been looking for some forever!
