Designing a space for a baby boy has been so much fun! I love creating spaces for kids, and after having two little ladies with a love for all things pink, it's nice to switch things up a little.

When I first started planning baby boy's room, I turned to Pinterest and Instagram to get inspired. Here are a few nurseries I gravitated towards.

What I love about these spaces is that they are neutral, there isn’t a set theme (i.e. rocket ships, dinosaurs etc.) and they are all spaces that baby can grow into. Keeping that in mind, I was inspired to create our baby boy's nursery. The theme for this room... think varsity, meets monochrome, meets mini man cave. My husband has a love for sports and cars, and until we know what our little guy is interested in, I decided to focus on his dad’s interests when it came to the artwork and some of the accessories - I also love the whole vintage sport/ varsity vibe!

Where we're at! 

Currently the furniture has been ordered and the wall treatments have been completed - this was done by Kane Contracting - and it will be painted next week. Although I'd like to think I'm going to try a different white, I'll most likely stick with the tried and true, Oxford White by Benjamin Moore.
We rolled out the rug today and I'm SO happy with it! I was struggling to find a rug for the nursery, because the rug that I originally fell in love with had navy stripes, which didn't work in this space. It took me a while to find something that I loved just as much. 

The light fixture (similar) that you see in the space is what we originally had in our guest room. I didn't love it then, but now that the nursery is coming together I think it might just work for baby boy! The one in my mood board is so dreamy, but it's a bit too big. If you have a larger space, please snag it and send me photos, so I can swoon over it.

Lastly, the gallery wall. I haven't settled on frames just yet but I started mapping them out on the wall using painters tape. I'll share more on this feature once I have it figured out! 
Although there is still tons to do, and lots of little accessories to shop for, I'm really happy with how this room is coming together. I hope this post inspires you if you're looking to change anything up in your child's space. What's great about this design, is that I truly think it can work for any age.
