Barrett’s Nursery Reveal

Last week, I showed you the awesome chair that my sister, Dania, reupholstered for her son. As promised, today I’m back with a look at my nephew, Barrett’s, adorable nursery– chair and all. I won’t keep you in suspense.

Isn’t it cute? I like to tease Dania that she never decorates with color (she prefers neutrals), but this is one room where I think she did such a great job of bringing in some fun colors along with the neutral creams and browns she loves. The navy and pops of red are perfect, and the whole room has a subtle nautical feel to it that I just love for a little boy.

This little stool is one of my favorite things and I had to get a close up of it. It used to live in my grandma’s house and Dania and I definitely took that saying to heart.
