Real Room Tour: Kailee Wright’s Nursery for Houston

Stylish super-mom Kailee Wright recently shared the photos of her son Houston’s nursery. It’s a huge space that also serves as a family playroom. She designed the room with help from Annalisa, of Oilo Studio, and every corner is styled to perfection.

Houston's Nursery by Kailee Wright overview

I love how she used a patterned rug to set the color scheme and ground the space.

The furnishings (dresser, storage and crib) are affordably Ikea, and the play table and chair set adds tons of style.

The crib bedding and changing pad cover are of course from Oilo Studio.

There are tons of tee pee style play tents out there but Kailee chose a lovely one from tnees.

I have to say, this nursery is the ultimate 2015 modern nursery. I’m sure it will be the backdrop for many happy Wright family memories. Thanks for sharing the photos with us Kailee!

I’ve had Born on Monday open on my desktop for weeks, but I’ll stop hogging this cuteness all to myself.

If you’ve got room for it, a play tent can become a fun and cozy feature in any child’s room or play space.

Oeuf’s Toy Store is a great storage piece that keeps playthings accessible.

The front facing bookshelves are a signature feature in a SISSY + MARLEY room, and as usual, I’m tempted to order every title they’ve selected.

I think these display shelves are my favorite accessory in the room and of course, they’re styled to perfection.

Knits from Oeuf and Lucky Boy Sunday are cute and cozy on the bed.

Top it off with a cute text print and some blue boyish toys and you’re really ready to roll.

Another inspirational job. Thanks for sharing, Chelsea! Now when are you coming down to Florida? I’ve got a beautiful blank space begging for your expert eye!

Shape-O Toy

We’ve rounded up our favorite shape sorters in the past, but somehow I missed the fact that you can still purchase the one I had as a kid over 35 years ago. If we still had it, it’d be as functional today as it ever was because these things last forever!

Tupperware Shape-O

The Shape-O Toy can be purchased online from Tupperware. This is a perfect gift for the child with nostalgic parents. $29

Oeuf River Twin Bed

We’re in the process of building a house and as its completion date gets closer I’m getting so anxious to move in, not just to enjoy our own space, but I really want our stuff back! It’s been in storage for months now and I’m longing to be around all my familiar things again. Some of my favorite items that I’m missing are my children’s bedroom furniture. My little one’s Oeuf Sparrow bedroom furniture is some of my most favorite. Though if I were in the market for a bed for him today, I’d have to consider the River Twin Bed ($740).

River twin bed from Oeuf

I love any furniture pieces that can do double duty (or more!) and with a trundle ($300) and the built-in bench, this is a really practical and beautiful piece.

It coordinates with any other Oeuf furniture pieces for easy mixing and matching of whatever furniture combination you need.
