WHY I LOVE THIS ROOM: TEN TAKEAWAYS (#4)

Hey, friends! I've come across another room that captivated me, and even though there are no babies in my near future, I keep coming back to this precious baby boy's nursery created by This American House. The color scheme has to be one of my favorites--blue and white--and there are so many details to take in. Shall we?


I followed the account not too long ago on Instagram, and one day last week, This American House shared this room. I loved it so much, I shared it, too. I've lost count of how many times I've revisited their page just to stare at this pretty space, and I had to discuss the details with you.


ONE

That light fixture! Such a pretty and unlikely choice for nursery lighting. But you have to admit, it adds a bit of wow to the room and doesn't seem at all out of place. The room may not always be a nursery, and the chandelier will transition well into a study, home office, or library.

TWO

The simple window treatments add the right touch of pattern and color. Buffalo check and gingham is a fan favorite and a personal favorite. I also like repeating the fabric on other things in the room like the small bed pillow. See some fun ways to use gingham here.

THREE

Look at that natural light flooding in the window. So pretty!

FOUR

The similar framed prints on each side of the window bring a design element that I'm always drawn to: symmetry. It's pleasing to the eye. The color tone in the art and the white mats tie in perfectly with the rest of the room.

FIVE

And did you notice the lamp? It's blue and white. I'm telling you, that combination looks great in any room and with any decor. The size of the lamp is good for a nursery, and probably gives off just enough light when it's bed time.

SIX

Surprisingly, the antique chest looks like it was made for a baby boy's room. I love that the designer left it in the the original finish. So many people are painting vintage furniture these days. I do like it painted, but the dark wood is charming.

SEVEN

I wish I could see what's inside the little storage basket next to the rocking chair. I would use it for diapers, burping cloths, toys, books, and the list goes on. The dipped bottom is a sweet touch. Makes it look like it was made for the room.

EIGHT

The simplicity of the baby bed is next on my list. It's beautiful and handsome all at the same time. It doesn't need any other decoration. It speaks for itself.

NINE

The next detail to notice is the stuffed animal. His colors blend right in with the tones of the room.  You can't go wrong with a giraffe. He'll be so fun as the baby boy gets older.

TEN

The last styling element on my list of details to notice is the rug. Chosen correctly a rug is like the icing on a cake. I would say this one is perfect. The colors complement the room, the pattern is not overwhelming, and it ties the entire space together.


Did I miss anything? Did you love it as much as I do?

Here are the other posts with details to notice in case you missed them:





Until next time!
