Sometimes it’s hard to think past the newborn stage when planning a nursery, but if you simultaneously design a space that works for newborn, infant, toddler, and preschooler, you’re really going to get the most for your money and efforts.
Today’s nursery tour is a great example of a space that can be adapted to suit any age. This incredibly warm modern nursery from Amanda of AJ Cooper is transitioning from nursery to little boy’s room as we speak and as Cooper grows.
If only the Storytime rocker were still available in orange! I love how the orange goes with the warm wood dresser, and that wood side table is a nice study piece in a room with an active little boy. He’s not going to break that thing.
The original design inspiration for the room came from the Caden Lane Blue Twiggy fabric that is part of the crib bedding. As you can see, the wall mural is an adaptation of that design. I love when they go around a corner like that. The crib is the Loom Crib from nurseryworks and it looks incredible in this nursery.
Cooper’s great-grandfather made the airplanes that hang over the crib by hand so these are custom one-of-a-kind pieces that I’m sure will be treasured for generations. He also painted the planes in the artwork below. He is one talented gentleman.
Cooper’s father seems to have inherited some of that creative talent and made the adorable toy box below.
Thank you Amanda for sharing this gorgeous, sophisticated and personal space. It’s well on its way to becoming a full-fledged big boy room, thanks to a design that’s bright and fun, but not babyish. You can see more about this nursery in Amanda’s post and be sure to keep up with her blog as she continues to post changes to this room as well as other stunning design projects.
