Nursery Tour: Guthrie's Retro Stripes

Jana created a real little boy's room for Guthrie with striped walls, vintage finds, and a warm green palette.

The initial inspiration for the room was the metal "Dream" sign above. Jana loves modern designer nursery furniture, but instead hunted around for furniture like Million Dollar Baby via Walmart with similar contemporary lines on a smaller budget.

The rugs and window treatments come from Ikea. Jana is currently on the lookout for the right FLOR tiles to replace them eventually. Jana shortened the Ikea panels and stenciled multi-colored G's (for Guthrie). With true DIY spirit, Jana told us she forgot to put plastic down underneath the panels, and now she has permanent G's on her living room carpet. The patchwork bedding is from Pottery Barn.

Jana loves the way the stripes turned out, but she warns us that it's not a project for those lacking patience. Her husband Tony is the one who carefully taped off everything. We have to say- these stripes look perfect.

Without being too themey, Jana created a boyish room with a lot of charm, without spending a bundle, all while having a "blast." Great job!
