boy nursery, gingham daybed

Somehow Andrew is two-years old and I have yet to share his nursery with you all.  You have seen a few sneak peeks here and here, but I haven’t done a true room reveal until today.

We found out in my first trimester that Andrew was a boy.  Since I went so ‘traditional boy’ with Knox’s nursery, I decided to do a more gender neutral nursery the second time around.  My thought process was that if we decide to have another child (we have always wanted three), I wouldn’t have to redesign the entire nursery if we have a girl oneday.  Instead of doing grey, which seems to be the most popular choice, I opted for a pale green color scheme.

The first item I ordered was the buffalo check daybed and the rest of the space was designed around that.  If you look back on old post shot in his room (like this one), you will noticed the walls were painted instead of wallpapered.  My original thought was that wall paper might be too much with the check bed, but when the room was painted (the day I went into labor), I hated it.  The color wasn’t right and the whole room just felt off.  I immediately knew the walls needed something more.  I found this wallpaper from Farrow and Ball and fell in love!  As soon as it went up, the rest of the room felt complete.

I love how much Andrew loves his room and his bed.  It is so fun to see them grow into their space.  He will wonder in on his own, pick out a book and sit in his rocking chair (last seen in Knox’s nursery) and flip through the pages.  It is the cutest!  As you can see from the pictures, Andrew sleeps with ‘Blue Blankey’.  Blue Blankey goes everywhere with us and it is the only thing he wants in his bed.  If I leave the pillow or stuffed animals in there, he immediately throws them out when I put him down.  It’s so funny to me how early kids get a mind of their own.

Our home is only a three-bedroom house which means we don’t have a proper guest room.  Both the boys have extra sleeping options in their room so when my parents or their cousins are in town we can house as many people as possible.  Andrew’s room has this day bed that also has a trundle underneath and Knox’s room has a trundle under his twin, as well.  After living in New York for four years, we have mastered the art of making the most out of space and sleeping arrangements. 😉
