A few months ago I shared my nursery inspiration board and now that Will has arrived it’s time to share the finished room! Since outdoor activities are a certain part of Will’s future, I stuck to my original plan of incorporating woodsy elements in a way that both my husband and I would love. Neutral base colors offset by lots of bright accents around the room helped achieve the calm yet whimsical feel we were going for.
I updated an old bookcase with white paint to hold Will’s toys and many children’s books. Additional toys are stashed in a brightly colored plastic container to prevent the pooch from chewing on them. A fluffy flokati rug softens up the heavy furniture and adds cushion to the hardwood floors for playing.
My favorite part about the room are the many accent pieces that were handmade by family, friends or myself, such as these deer blankets and pillows. Using silhouettes paired with glossy white pieces, like the antler mount or owl lamp, make the outdoorsy elements feel more modern than hunting lodge.

This is absolutely adorable! So modern and perfect for your sweet baby 🙂
The nursery is perfect for your little guy… it will easily transition from infancy through childhood. 🙂
just the validation i needed that flokati rugs DO look pretty cool! the nursery looks absolutely perfect — high five!
Your nursery is AMAZING! I love everything about it. This belongs in a magazine 🙂
So adorable Katie. What great ideas, and so much creative talent you (and your fam and friends!) have used to put this together!
want to copy that pillow, I know how to make a pillow but the question is where to find that buck head.
@Isadora – I found a picture of a deer online that I liked the silhouette of and then used Photoshop to create the template and size it. If you don’t have access to Photoshop you could trace the shape and then use a photocopier to blow it up to the size you want. Good luck!
Does your mom make pillows to sell?
I want this orange pillow and the blanket!!!! Please email me information!!!!!!!!!
Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to place am order
@Amber – glad you like them! I don’t sell the pillows as that was just custom made by my mom. The blanket was made by a friend though and she sells her blankets on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FleeFlyFlown.
Oh no!! I came across the photo of your pillow and blanket on Pinterest and LOVE them so much I wanted to theme my new nursery around them! But now reading the pillow was hand made by your MOM?! Nooooo…now what do I do? 🙂 #brokenhearted
