Nursery Painted in Pastels Is Surprisingly Perfect for a Baby Boy

Let me be the first to tell you that pastels are most definitely not reserved for girls! The wall color in this nursery done for baby Jude will testify as much. It's such an inviting space and you'll love to see how it all came together after being gutted down to the literal bare bones.

The Oeuf crib was a splurge, but almost everything else in this room was sourced on a budget. I love the tall shelving unit that helps solve a space and storage problem, and the way the baskets are staggered adds a creative element to the whole thing. 

The dresser was a thrift store treasure, given some paint and spruced up with new knobs. What a great find!

Hanging planters spray-painted white makes for great stuffed animal baskets!

This little book nook is fantastic -- I think the corner shelving looks really smart and I love all the small personal touches.  

This fabulous trunk was made by a family member and given as a wedding gift. They turned it into a window seat by adding a simple cushion. Delightful!

Are you on board with a bold (yet calming) wall color like this? I think it works so well with the rest of the room furnishings and am especially pleased with the way it all came together. A job well done!
