Real Room Tour: Racing Inspired Modern Nursery

One last nursery tour in 2010 and we’re going out with a bang.  You’re going to love this one.  You haven’t seen a boy’s nursery like this yet.  Usually if you hear “racing inspired nursery,” you’re going to see a hideous themed space with a race car border running around the room and black and white checkered curtains.  Let me assure you, that is FAR from the case here.

Jess was inspired by the racing poster on the left, and you can see the inspiration in the colors, the “racing” stripes on the wall and the black leather chair.  Past that, this is a clean and modern space for a little boy to grow into.

If you can believe it, Jess had only 6 weeks to prepare for her adopted son Ben, and the room must have come together like clockwork because it turned out perfectly!

The crib and dresser are the DwellStudio for Target Silver Lake Crib and 4 Drawer Dresser in Walnut and White.  The mobile is a Manhattan Toy Infant Stim-Mobile.  I love the mobile because it’s designed for baby to see from their position laying in the crib, and it also happens to match the color scheme of the room!

The poster makes a dramatic statement as a big piece of artwork.  Don’t be afraid to use large scale pieces.  They can be a wonderful focal point.

The reading corner is cozy and practical with a lot of light and books within reach.  It is made personal with prized family photos, and that chair looks so comfortable.

The changing area is topped off with this custom monogrammed artwork made especially for Ben.

All the details are so well coordinated and create a welcoming and cozy room for Jess’s new addition.

Don’t you love that little trio of stuffed animals on the bookshelf!

Congratulations Jess and Ben!  This is a beautiful nursery that I’m sure will be inspirational to many. Thank you so much for sharing it.  Have a very Happy New Year!
