Silas' Nursery Tour

"People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one."
-Leo J. Burke

I have been collecting nursery ideas for years (most recently on Baby B's Room Pinterest board). Although I considered several different options, I decided to go in the direction of bold and graphic, rather than a traditional baby theme. I fell in love with the feather fabric for the window valance first and built the room around that color scheme (dark teal, coral, citron, and gray) with a loose adventure vibe (feathers, arrows, mountains, etc.).

Rob took on the big projects like replacing the carpet with wooden laminate flooring and painting the walls dark gray. In the meantime, I focused on creating custom artwork for the walls, and my mom helped us with many of the sewing projects. We love the result and couldn’t wait to bring Baby B home to his new room!!

  1. Hello from Germany :) I was looking for ideas to decorate my son's room. His name is Silas and that's how I came to your blog! I really love your ideas.Very lovingly ..Silas is a very rare name here in Germany, did you know? I'm 50% American and 50% German so I knew this name before. I will definitely come back to your blog more often :) Have to say "Hi" from "big" Silas in Germany ( he's born in 2007 ) to "little" Silas over there :)
