Irish hunt-inspired nursery

I’ve designed my fair share of nurseries over the last couple years and my favorites have always been those where the clients let me bring in the unexpected (remember the longhorn I mounted above the crib in this nursery?).  For me, the best baby and kid spaces are those that aren’t too serious – or too baby-ish, for that matter, so when I saw the Irish hunt-inspired nursery that blogger Laurel-Dawn of Abode Love designed for her baby boy, my jaw hit the floor!  From the custom wallpaper Laurel-Dawn designed, had printed on fabric and then adhered to the walls with liquid starch to the iron canopy crib, nature-inspired artwork, blue-painted ceiling and that fabulous baker’s rack for extra storage, every last detail is well thought out and absolutely adorable!  Mommy even painted a four-leaf clover print that is also available for sale through her blog.  I love that she eschewed tradition and didn’t include a changing table, either.  The result is perfect for a baby boy to grow into a little boy in!

I am a firm believer that any space can benefit from a gallery wall, even a nursery and I love the mix of framed cards, paintings, a set of antlers and mirror Laurel-Dawn used in this one:

The baker’s rack is an unexpected, but fabulous alternative for additional storage:

Love the dresser wall’s forest green accent color, instead of wallpaper:
