Baby Boy Nursery Before and After

About six months ago Chelsey Bell enlisted my help with her baby boy’s nursery. I love doing nursery’s so of course I was delighted to help. And an added bonus is that her baby boy is named Jett! How could I resist?
The room we were designing used to be her little girl’s room. While there was nothing too terribly wrong with it she wanted a room with much more pizzaz and excitement! 
Don’t you love before pictures? 
She sent me this picture from Boston Home as her inspiration for the room. 
We really wanted to incorporate that lime green mixed with blues. After seeing her inspiration picture this is the board I came up with. 
I used this fabric to bring in all the colors that we wanted. 
This pillow also worked perfectly with the color scheme. 
I love planet mobiles. This one is what we picked for the room. 
Everything came together wonderfully. Chelsey is a photographer so she was able to take pictures of the room.  I think it turned out just as I imagined! 
You can see more pictures on her blog here.

    I love the use of the Walmart crib and changing table. I'm always sharing with clients how affordable and yet stunning their cribs are. Who would have ever thought? Love the zoo fabric, definitely ties in the entire room! Great job as usual Kirsten!

    It really turned out beautifully, Kirsten! One of my very favorite nurseries! I'm going to email the link to my sister because she loves lime and navy and just had a baby. Thanks!

    So so beautiful. LOVING that he matches his room. And that, "When he wakes. . he will move mountains." is perfect.

    I am in LOVE with these colors and all the special details. I am a big fan of baby rooms that are light-hearted and fun without having an overly "baby" vibe. This room is perfect!

    Such a cute little boys room! Can you please tell me where the rocker is from?

  22. Sara @ Russet Street Reno Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 1:06 am #

    I love that room!

  23. Scott and Chelsey Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 3:49 am #

    Thanks again sooooo much!!! I'm enjoying his room so much! The mobile is my favorite thing and I wish you could tell how big and amazing it is in pics. Makes the whole room for me!
    The paint color I just went to Kwall and had them match the crib bumper color…
    The little rocker I just bought on Overstock and use it a lot for photography, but it works for his room for now!

  32. Scott and Chelsey Wednesday, June 6, 2012 at 10:20 pm #

    The fabric for the striped curtains was bought at Calico Corners.
