  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought black and white would be so cute for a child's room, but it was executed so perfectly! Love those curtains!

  8. Im almost speechless! Love the muted yet warmth of the color scheme. I think I want to paint my den that color! Love the mirror and so developmentally wonderful in the placement! Curtains just rock! And I love how you extended the window not just with a wider curtain rod but using the pictures! And I love how uncluttered it seems yet full of personality and sentiment! Love the insertions of yellow and the graphicness of the stripes and circles and letters and the whimsy of the clouds! Ok so I was more speech filled then I thought! Just love it! :o)

  50. What a beautiful room! Even though I usually don't like chevrons, they look great on your curtains! I tried to figure out by looking at the pictures if you made these things yourself or if they were from a store - couldn't manage! But once I read your "Thoughts about..." post, I'm in awe at what you did with the room - must have taken you FOREVER to finish it!

  52. I am in LOVE with Owen's room! You did such an amazing job designing his space. I loved reading through how your ideas for his room evolved as you created each piece of his room. I always start off with one idea for a space and then watching the original design evolve as each piece of the room starts to come together. I featured his room over on my blog's Nursery Tuesday this week and I would love it if you stopped by sometime jroxdesigns.wordpress.com/

  58. I love Owen's nursery!!! I am still doing mine and trying to be patient while my boyfriend paints it but I can't wait to accessorize and such. My color scheme is similar to yours with white walls,navy,yellow, and gray being the accent colors. You just gave me a great idea on where to put my mirror in the nursery.

  89. I have been searching for nursery ideas for a few weeks and this is my absolute favorite. I didn't see anywhere in the comments where the curtains are from. I have been searching fabrics for days in hopes of finding it but have had no luck. Would you be able to me know?

    Thanks for blogging about the room!!
