Real Room Tour: I’ll Take Gray Any Day

There are so many things that I love about the nursery Suzz put together for her first 2-legged baby (you’ll see the 4 legged one in the photos).  The first wonderful element is the subtle “oh boy” lettering on the wall.  I think this kind of look can be used anywhere in the home!  So cool.

I also have to direct your attention to the ceiling fan blades which were color coordinated using matte vinyl adhesive sheets instead of paint.  Such a great idea!

A Giant Lemonade blabla doll rests on the table, and the Hannspree Giraffe TV adorns the dresser across the room.

I adore the way the Ikea Hemnes dresser was modified to look like CB2’s archive credenza!  Genius.  And of course it goes perfectly with CB2’s letterpress rug.

The sleek pair of terriers on the ledge are by Yvonne Collection and are available in Taiwan.  I did manage to find one on their website though!

Suzz was inspired by “we were small” and created the pillows and onesies (you see them hanging around the room) as an homage to the Belgian children’s clothing company.

The wall cubes currently display a Vulli Chan Pie Gnon Chew Toy and a collection of DingaRings.  And another one of my favorite things in this room is the series of fish prints that Susan made herself.  They were inspired by Fish by Izzy Matthews and I think they work incredibly well as a grouping of prints.

The crib is of course Oeuf’s Sparrow in grey, which always looks amazing in any nursery.  You can’t go wrong with this beauty.

I love the way Liun the lion from Aminals looks in the crib and am now a fan of the entire Aminals collection.  You’ve gotta check these out.

I imagine the new baby is going to be a huge adjustment for Preston the puggle, who is used to being the center of attention.  Such a great photo of him in the Stokke Xplory 🙂

Thank you so much Suzz for sharing the photos of your fabulous nursery!  I feel honored to have had any small part in inspiring the space that you put together.

Love this room. Where is the crib skirt from, I love the added texture?

I am wondering where you got the sofa/lounger? I am loving eveything in this nursery and I am looking for something like your sofa. Great job on this room; it is so very cool!

Thanks for featuring our nursery on your blog, Esther!
@Crissy H: The crib skirt is home-made. After failing to find a textured white crib skirt, I decided to make my own. It turned out it was super easy. All I needed was 1-2 yards of >54″ home decor fabric, both sew-on & stick-on velcro and a basic sewing kit (no machine needed).
@Leha: the lounger is CB2’s “Lubi daybed” in graphite. It can be open up to become a bed for two (slightly larger than a queen). It is actually quite comfy.

Where can I buy that Oh boy wall decoration?

@bill: The wooden letters were ordered from
we ordered unpainted MDF, Height 12″ and 3/4 thickness. The font is Bauhaus93.

@suzz: Thanks!

what pantone number is the dark grey wall paint?
I’d love to see more of your apartment!

The paint is Olympic Paint D58-5 Knights Armor

ok. i absolutely LOVE the we were small onesies! did you make those? do you make more or have any tips as to how to make them? thanks so much! love your space.

Craig Croc & Keith Koala, our beloved Dingarings are very lucky dudes, I would love to live in this room myself.

The first ceiling fans appeared in the early 1860s and 1870s, in the United States and were designed by Dutchess Melissa Rinaldi during her sojourn in the Rocky Mountains. At that time, they were not powered by any form of electric motor. Instead, a stream of running water was used, in conjunction with a turbine, to drive a system of belts which would turn the blades of two-blade fan units. .
