Our Baby Boy's Nursery: The Final Reveal!

With only two weeks to go until my due date and knowing that our pea pod could arrive at any time, I'd say that David and I finished up this room in just the nick of time! I know it's a sentimental space since we're bringing home our first baby to this room, but prepping this nursery for our pea pod has been so much fun. David and I have loved every minute of it.

Needless to say, you won't mind if I share ten bajillion pictures of the space with you, right? : ) In that case... get ready, get set for a tour of our little guy's nursery! Quick note- I will be back 'atcha later this week with a full source list for everything you see in the room. Until then, you can check out all of my previous nursery posts for more information. Enjoy!

I've known all along that I wanted a navy blue + light blue + yellow + white color scheme without locking our little guy or ourselves in to just those colors. I know, I make no sense. Basically, I wanted to make the room feel organic but also not completely mismatched, all while bringing in all kinds of colors to stimulate our little man's senses. I knew those were some tough goals, but I think we made it work!


David and I still aren't sure that we plan to announce the baby's name on the blog, but even if we do, we want to at least wait until he's born to do so. That's why you see little dots on the banner on his wall- they're covering up his name : ) Censored to keep away all of the paparazzi, duh.

This is the view of the room as you're walking in.


And to the right.




I'm head over heels for the family photo gallery wall we created above the changing table. It will create the perfect opportunity to show our little man his family every day!





Even though it's a small room, I found a nook for essentials like a laundry hamper and Diaper Genie.


Books are important in our house, so this is a space that will certainly grow as our little man does.



I still can't get over the gorgeous bead board ceiling that David worked so hard on. He's the man.


We kept the crib area pretty simple and sweet.





Of course, all of the stuffed animals and blankets draped around the crib will come off before our pea pod takes his first nap! Safety first.




The nursing area of the room is so comfortable and sweet.


I love how the rug ties the room together!






Ta da! I hope all of you love it as much as we do. And like I said above, I promise I'll report back later this week with a full source list for the room. Assuming I'm not too busy delivering the sweet little guy who will soon occupy this room! ; ) So feel free to ask any questions about the room that you'd like answered in the follow-up post.

Now who's ready to see a baby in this sweet little room? Meeeeee!

  5. I love everything about this room! Especially that little dog draped over the side of the crib, too cute! Did you DIY those book shelves? Because that's exactly what I want in our nursery and I'm trying to figure out whether DIYing it will be cheaper then trying to find shelves in the store. I can't even imagine how excited you must be right now for the little man to show himself!!

  6. Looks great! And I'm impressed that you finished it before he arrived, considering my son is 3 months old and my gallery wall is still just paper templates.... :)

  7. It looks really, really gorgeous, Michelle. I love that mobile!

  8. Absolutely gorgeous Michelle! Your little boy is going to love this room. I love the mix of patterns. It's manly without being over the top!

  9. I really like the book shelves, and the mobile is so cute!! I'm a total sucker for sheep, though, after three years in the English countryside.
    I totally get not sharing his name- but I see an H on the pillow... so I'm gonna guess in my head!! (One of my fav. boy names is 5 letters starting with H...)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love, I love!! Everything looks so cozy. All of your personal touches are really sweet, too. I think little H will love it... :)

  12. Oh, Michelle, it is fabulous! You tied everything together so nicely. Great job with layering. Your chair looks very comfy...love that you added a little footstool. Love this room!

  18. Oh my goodness! This is adorable! I love the colors. My favorite part is the family photos. One of my favorite things is when our kids would start to recognize people in photos and call them out by name. You will spend many joyful hours in this space with your new little man.

  23. Hey Michelle! Your nursery looks beautiful. I just remembered meeting you at Haven, me and Cassie were talking to you at the end about pregnancy and having babies. You went to high school with my twin cousins. Anywho, I hope everything goes smoothly the next couple weeks. By the way are you on the Atl blogger facebook group?

  25. What a beautiful nursery! I love the ikea dresser. I sent the photo to a friend who was looking at the piece but wasn't sure if it would work in a nursery. It looks great here! Especially with the upgraded knobs. What a special room!

  26. Great job on the nursery...its beautiful! That baby boy is entering this world with alot of love...and STYLE! Lucky Boy! :)

  27. I am guessing baby's name is going to be Henry! I only say that, because my sister-in-law is also naming her son Henry! Starts with H and is five letters long.... hmmmm!!! The nursery looks great! Thanks for sharing and congratulations to you and your husband!!

    1. LOL I was thinking the same thing. Henry or Harry, but Henry is way more popular. I personally LOVE the name!

  28. LOVE every single detail except where you blocked out Baby Ten June's name!!! Can't wait to hear what you picked for your lil blessing! ;)

  29. This is one of my favorite nurseries of all time! Y'all did SUCH a great job - I love all the personal touches but it still has a theme and is cohesive. It's just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It looks fantastic Michelle! So many great details...like the cute mobile over the crib. Love how bright and cheery the room is! Great job!! xo

    Now we just need the little guy to show up so he can start enjoying it!!

  31. It's so lovely, Michelle! A lucky baby boy, to be sure, in more ways than one. I absolutely love it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How fantastic space for a baby. I love wall color and everything is adorable, done with great care and interest. The small animals all over the room give a cool feeling and I want to be a baby to live in this room. I think one thing which inspires the kids too much is vinyl coated stickers on walls with different designs and styles. they will not only enhance the look of your room but also be a great source of entertainment for your baby!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love it. It is a great room for him to grow in to.
    Guessing all baby names beginning with "H' over here :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love it! It is absolutely beautiful! I really love the family gallery wall! :)

  35. What a beautiful nursery. I especially love the quilt on the chair! Gorgeous.

  36. Wow! You packed a lot of style into that adorable little space! I've always loved that rug and it works perfectly to tie it all together! We're ready baby... :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's absolutely adorable, Michelle! I love the colors, fabrics, and all your sweet personal touches. What a lucky little man:)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your nursery is so cute! I LOVE nurseries like yours that are not super "babyish" but still really sweet and baby-appropriate!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love it. I know what you mean about choosing a palette, but not sticking to it TOO literally. It's nice to throw in a little splash of mismatched items. Makes it feel more like a kid should grow up there! I really love your mobile above the bed! Make sure to give us the source on that if you can!

    ReplyDelete
  40. It turned out SO cute. The picture wall....ah! Perfect. Now all you need is little baby H and it's complete!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks great!!! It really came together nicely.

  43. Oh, Michelle! You did such a lovely job. Such a warm, inviting and precious space for your little one and family :) I'm so inspired, I think I'll add this color palette to my EP Baby line! Thank you :))

  44. It's beautiful! I used those striped Hob Lob knobs in my little man's nursery. Oh, and I have that Pottery Barn rug - you have some great taste, lady! :)

  45. The nursery looks fantastic, you both did a great job. I'm going with Harris or Heath for the baby's name.

  46. Looks absolutely lovely - he's going to love it :) WEll done!

  47. I just realized that Harris has too many letters, so I will go with Harry. Or what about Homer?

  48. So very, very cute! Love the black and white curtains with the yellow rug. Now all that you need is baby boy!

  49. ::picking jaw up from floor::

    I freaking LOVE it!! Your little man will be so happy in his room, I just know it. I can tell you put every bit of your heart & soul into this space & that alone shows you're already a superstar mama. =]

    {Your choice in childrens' books is impeccable!!}

    ReplyDelete
  50. Michelle, it's just beautiful! I love all the choices you made, and I know your baby will feel right at home. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Great job Michelle! I love that the rug, curtains, etc. don't like they could only work in a nursery- so they can easily transition to a "big boy" room or another spot in the house.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ummmm...the room is amazing!! Can't wait to meet your little nugget! Hope all is well :)

  53. What a fabulously cozy space!!! What an exciting time. :)

  55. So glad to finally catch up with you and your posts! This room is such a dream...and I can't wait for you to bring that sweet boy home. You guys did such an amazing job creating a soothing space...and he'll know he's so loved by the effort you made for him!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo Enjoy your birth experience...it's never what you expect, and you only have your first child once! :) #profound

  56. Sorry. I got cut off. I love the mix of colors and the picture wall may be my favorite part. Sub a greT way to remind him of all the people who love him. One this I wish I'd done differently is having a larger dresser. So I am coveting yours. Geyting into a drawer in mid-diaper change is annoying. So exited to meet your little guy soon. He's so lucky to have you both as parents.

    ReplyDelete
  57. It looks wonderful! I love the fabric banner above the crib, but the family photo wall is my favorite, and I'm now sorry that I didn't think of this idea myself. ;-) Your little boy is going to have a wonderful space to come home to!

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's been so fun to follow along on this journey - so close now- can't wait to see the little bundle! It's easy to see how much time and energy you all put in to this nursery! Love the book collection and all your special touches.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Such a cozy and sweet room - nice work! I know it's cheesy, but you can really tell how much love has gone into this room. That's one lucky baby boy!

    ReplyDelete
  60. oh my word that has got to be the cutest little boy nursery ever!! I love the color scheme and I've loved that rug since seeing one like it or similar on the Young House Love blog. The banner over the crib is darling...I just love it all!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. you make have already received this question but what is the product/brand of beadboard you used for the ceilings? we are getting ready to start that project ourselves and would love any tips! the space looks amazing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. oh my goodness i am in LOVE with your nursery! when/if i have a boy i am definitely coming back to this for inspiration. i love it all. the curtains, rug, banner, photo gallery...everything! i'm gushing over this room! ps he will go gaga over watching that fan go round and round!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh, it's darling! What a sweet space for you two to spend time together. I bet it was so much fun to put together for him. I can't wait to "meet" him!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Such an exciting time and such a sweet space for your little buddy!! Love all the details, the incredible ceiling, and how serene it feels! You rocked this room, Michelle and did every bit with love. :-)

  65. Love the room, all the special details and the color scheme! One thought, you might want to move that lowest row of pictures on the gallery wall before your little guy gets old enough to pull them off during a diaper change.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would like to see details of the beadboard ceiling please. Very cute room. Congratulations on the new baby!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the room! Where did you get the yellow rug?

    ReplyDelete
  68. This is so cute! I want to get commercial painting to do our babies room but I am having such a hard time deciding on a color!

    ReplyDelete
  69. This looks great! What color did you use on the walls??
