My Room: Jack

Silver Spring, MD

Jack's nursery feels so fresh and is an prime example of how using a theme with restraint can give it personality while still leaving plenty of room to grow. Joannah (due with Jack 1/24!) shares: We started with a 9x11 sized room that we never knew what to do with. With a life lived on or near water, we knew we wanted a sailing themed nursery for our baby boy, but also wanted something more modern.

Our parents provided the inspiration of two brass anchor hooks and a talented member of our family painted the walls and the rest came together from Ikea (crib, dresser, rattan basket), Etsy.com (inital prints, nautical thermometer, whale decal), Target (all frames) and our imaginations.

With family being a strong influence in our lives, we infused framed prints of our family members on the water in to the room to add a sense of nostalgia to counter the modern feel of the room.

Thanks Joannah!
