Baby Boy’s Nursery Reveal

Leslie Bruce

Secretly, I was desperate for our second baby to be a boy; so much so that during one of our earliest ultrasounds I asked the doctor if he could “see a wiener.” (Seriously, ask my husband…who was absolutely mortified.) Not only did I want to experience the sweet cuddles of my own little Mama’s Boy, I also sort of loved the idea of designing a baby boy nursery.

 

My daughter happens to be the girliest girl imaginable, so I’ve been able to get my fill of pink and frills. When she was born, I went crazy: her room was bright pink with Alice in Wonderland murals covering the walls. Looking back, it’s clear to see that the surge in estrogen was taking over my body. Hindsight has also given me the luxury of knowing just how quickly babies become toddlers who eventually become preschoolers. Tallulah outgrew her room so quickly that I wanted Baby Boy’s room to be a space he could grow in to.

 

Shortly after an ultrasound confirmed that it was a baby boy (and my SCH had cleared), I asked my friend Jesse DeSanti of Jette Creative to help me start brainstorming a sweet space for out little man that didn’t feel overly “baby.”

I wanted to keep our daybed in the room, because it’s always nice to have an extra place for company (or for us!), so it was important for us that she found a way to work it into the aesthetic. And since I already had a changing table and glider from when Tallulah was little, I wanted to try and incorporate (the less stuff I had to buy, the better).

Jesse had the genius idea to cover the changer with a wallpaper to soften its stark white finish and allow it to feel different from when Tallulah had it.

Besides accessories, the only big ticket item we purchased was the crib…and if you follow me on Insta-Stories, you know how that went down! (Watch the highlights under the “Baby” icon.) Jesse and I couldn’t decide on a traditional theme—there are equal parts sailboats and safari—so we decided to just call it “Exploration” and hope no one would notice that it really was just a hodgepodge.

Thanks for checking it out! More pics and credits below!

    What a beautiful space! Where is that mobile from? And the stuffed rhino – where is that from? Did you frame the animal print photos yourself? If so, where are the frames from? (I basically want to copy everything you did). Thanks, mama!

    Needed to create you a very little word so as to give many thanks yet again for these wonderful opinions you have documented on this page. This is certainly open-handed of you to make easily just what a number of us might have marketed for an ebook to help make some profit on their own, chiefly since you might have done it in case you desired. Those basics in addition served like the easy way to fully grasp that someone else have a similar interest similar to my personal own to know a great deal more regarding this problem. I’m certain there are some more enjoyable periods ahead for individuals who scan through your website.

    I and my friends were reviewing the excellent tricks located on your site then suddenly came up with a terrible feeling I had not thanked the site owner for those strategies. Most of the young boys had been thrilled to study all of them and already have absolutely been taking advantage of them. Appreciate your simply being considerably kind and for considering certain notable areas millions of individuals are really desperate to know about. Our sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier.
