Mood Board: Ashley’s (Boy) Nursery

I am beyond obsessed with one of my latest mood boards, so I’m skipping ahead a bit to share it! Ashley had contacted me back in March to see if I’d be wiling to help her out with a nursery for her newest addition. Of course, I was elated and welcomed the opportunity. Nurseries definitely have a sweet spot in my heart, for a few reasons. A-Babies are adorable, and their rooms are too. And B- the very first space I ever shared on the blogosphere was Zoey’s nursery, and I like to think that design is responsible for really getting my name out there. Aka – Pinterest loves Zoey’s nursery.

Back to Ashley’s space. I love this nursery. Like, lurve it. I want it. So bad, that I want a new baby JUST so I can copy it. (kidding mom, I haven’t completely lost it just yet)

Here’s what Ashely had to say about her hopes for this new space:

“The purpose of the room is something that can grow as they do. Also, we’d like the room to be a place that is comfortable and functional, since we plan to be spending a lot of time in there. i think i really want a twin bed or daybed to be in there for long nights as well.

I don’t have a specific color scheme in mind. I tend to gravitate towards rooms with a neutral base and pops of color (hot pink being a fav) & i am always a sucker for black and white accents. I want it to be a fun room without being overly themey. i am literally in love with your oldest daughter’s big girl room, so i’d love something with a feel similar to that. if it is a boy that is where i am really stumped. You’ll notice that my pinterest board is heavy on the girl stuff and super light on the boy stuff just because i tend to not like any of the boy rooms that are out there. (UPDATE: we later found out Ashley was in fact, having a boy)

I have a gold mirror that has just been sitting unused for months now, so if it worked in the room then it would be available as well as two white ikea expedit shelves. Neither have to be in the room.We are basically starting from scratch. I do loooooove the “for like ever” poster and have been looking for an excuse to buy myself one…i also love the chalkboard in the entry and our room has a similar opening.

If it matters, my dad is a contractor so i have a handyman at my disposal. I’d love to get an area rug to cover (at least a portion) of the crappy carpet. i think i want to remove the closet doors in the room and add a closet organizer with curtains where the doors would be.”

Here’s what I came up with!

Note: As some of you may have noticed, I did not include links to the products within the mood board. Unfortunately, I’ve made the choice, based on several reasons, to no longer provide them here on the blog. As much as I’d love to, providing links a second time is extremely time consuming. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean you won’t have access to sources! I create Pinterest boards specific to each and every mood board that I create. You can simply hop on over and scroll to find any product you may be interested in! Here’s the direct link to Ashley’s Nursery!

Update: We’re taking a quick leave from mood boards and will NOT be accepting new clients for the time being. I’m currently booked through August, so we plan to reopen shop (or at least give an update) around that time. Thanks for your patience!

    This has nothing to do with the mood board today. I was wondering how you keep your rugs so clean with young kids? Do ya’ll take your shoes off at the door or do you use a special cleaner that keeps them fresh? I’ve noticed how clean your living room rug looks, especially, and it’s a light yellow.

      Haha, well the rugs definitely have their fair share of smaller stains. We don’t have a no shoes rule, but they typically come off anyway. I swear by our Rug Doctor spot cleaner though. I use it on all of our rugs throughout the house and it does not disappoint, even a red drink spill on our yellow rug in the living room! Hope that helps!

    Very cute! I love the vintage letter cards. I’ve been trying to think of some type of art to do with letters for our playroom. What would be a good way to use these cards? Frame them, stick them right on the wall?! I’d love to hear how you were thinking those could be used in the nursery!

      This specific set of cards is fairly small, so I recommended that they be framed. A larger set could definitely go right on the wall or strung up, maybe like a banner of some sort? Hope that helps!
