{i decorate} baby hank's nursery reveal.

here it is!
baby hank's nursery reveal.

the moment we found out we were having a boy, i had a vision of what his room would look like.
full of pattern, colour, texture... modern furniture with a little vintage peppered throughout.

baby hank's room has a playful mix of rockets, elephants and all things boy.
many of the elements of his room are handmade or diy'd with love.
his giant frames will be host to large photos of his newborn session.
i'll be adding a few more little details once he arrives. i'd love to find the perfect cozy rug for his floor and add this quirky pillow for his corner chair.
it's an incredible transformation from hazel's sweet girly nursery seen here.

a few of my favourite things are...
a handmade paper mobile
handmade personalized art from scrap fabric and charley harper flash cards
a hand stitched wood felt elephant made during my sleepless nights
jumbo poms added to his drapes
a jonathan adler knock off elephant lamp found at home sense
his name. after my husband's great grandfather.
... the list goes on...

Looove it, Sarah! So, so many awesome details, I can't even pick my favourite. The pillows, the colour palette, the mobile, the H!

Oh Hank is a lucky boy. Of course, I am partial to his name too.
I love everything about this room. What a ton of work you've done!

Jocelyn said...

It is absolutely perfect! I don't think I knew a room could be calm and bright and cheery at the same time. I agree with the others that the handmade details make the room. Great job!

Love how Hank's nursery turned out! So fresh and fun! I've been wanting that Lack shelf from IKEA for I don't know how long. I thought they had discontinued it. Did you get it recently?

Where did you find that fabric for his window bench cushion? Amazing room!

Ezra, Kian & Eden said...

That room is ridiculously perfect!
I bet you're pacing the floors waiting to have sweet little Hank in your arms to show it all off to him. :)

Lulu said...

Such a perfect collections of items and impeccable taste! Love the way it all turned out. I'm so jealous that you have access to Ikea. The closest one to me is 6 hours away... oh well.

Megan said...

I absolutely adore your nursery! Beautiful job!!

Emma said...

An absolutely gorgeous nursery, you have done a beautiful job!! I love the cushion with the retro print of children playing, and it would go perfectly with some of the items in the nursery I am preparing for my little one. Did you make it? If so, so you know what fabric it is? Big thanks!

Sarah surely I can't be the first one to ask if you have a tutorial on how to make the bench cover? I see from here and the one in your girls room that you used a camping cushion. It's my new mission to get this Lack shelf and make a window seat in my kids playroom! I don't know how to sew but hoping this cushion would be easy! I know with 3 kiddos you have nothing else to do beside whip up a tutorial right? lol. Just found your blog this am and I've spent over half an hour browsing the lovely photos! That little Hank is so stinking cute!
