sullivan’s nursery design

I’m a little behind on my blogging because I gave birth to our beautiful baby boy, Sullivan Finch Sloane, on March 13th!  And I’ve been dying to share his nursery that I worked so hard to design and get ready for him.  It was important the space feel tranquil, but still be fun and inviting, so I used a lot of neutrals to balance out the bits of color.

There are several personal touches throughout the room.  I framed my favorite maternity photo. The embroidered constellations are my sign, my husband’s sign and Sullivan’s sign, all made by my mother. The “rules to always be a gentleman” poster was a gift I gave to my husband for our future baby.  And the cardboard animal heads were purchased in my husband’s hometown and then we lovingly put them all together.

Some of my favorite elements in the room are his wooden toys, especially the camera, the antique arrows and sailboat mobile.  I guess I had a bit of adventurer’s theme going on in my head when I picked out all the details.  When he realizes it’s his room, I think he’s going to like it!  And I can’t thank my friend, Odalys Mendez, enough for taking these gorgeous photos for me!

    Your nursery is gorgeous. I went with a similar theme for my son who was born last August. I was wondering if you would mind telling me where you got your wooden camera, globe bank and patchwork dresser from?

    So beautiful! I have a question about the embroidered pieces. On what type of material were they stitched?

    So happy I happened upon your gorgeous nursery as I'm looking to create the same soothing vibe that you so perfect did! Would you mind sharing where you got the larger glider/chair? I love the crisp lines of it compared to the more rolled armed ones I've been finding. Thanks!:)
