Peter Pan Inspired Nursery Reveal

It's always fun when best friend's have babies, because it means I get to help with their nursery design, among other fun things :)

As you know, my friend Ashley had baby Caleb last fall and I was able to go visit her in September to dote on the new little man. When I was there, we also put some finishing touches on his nursery. I loved the concept and inspiration for Caleb's nursery, because it was unlike any theme I'd ever done before. A Peter Pan inspired nursery happened right before our very eyes and I love every square inch. It's simple, adventurous, boy-friendly, playful and sweet.

Ashley's Grandma painted this amazing clock tower from Peter to put over the crib. Having original and sentimental artwork in the nursery is so special. Here's what Ashley had to say about this painting:

"The most special piece in the room is the painting my grandmother did for caleb-- she painted her version of Thomas Kinkade's painting and added some extras in, like Bella (our pup) flying off to Neverland and we painted in the time Caleb was born on the clock hands. Love this so much!"

We started with out big design elements first. After seeing the painting for above the crib, we chose a soothing shade of creamy blue for the walls and this Lulu & Georgia rug that actually looks like water (this was the first thing Ashley bought for the room and it was love at first sight for both of us!) Next we picked out the adorable Caitlin Wilson Textile anchor pillow, Ashley found the Peter Pan watercolors from Billy & Scarlet, and an awesome floor lamp. Then Ashley filled in with fun details like the world map dresser knobs, cute stuffed animals (and of course the crocodile is in the mix!) and some great fishy bedding from Land of Nod.  We spray painted the numbers gold and paired them with a fun sailboat and the sweetest pair of baby Sperry's. This was the first thing Ash bought for Caleb while we were on our trip in Chicago.  It's always the little details that really pull the room together! But, of course, the cutest little detail is baby Caleb himself. 

Here's a long overdue tour of Caleb's nursery (sources are below!)

Go visit Ashley's blog for more of her commentary on the nursery.

Isn't it precious?! I love the Peter Pan idea, and love even more that we didn't go over-the-top in the decor, but rather were simply inspired by Peter Pan and other nautical pieces played into it. Overly theme-driven spaces can be too much, so Caleb's nursery had just the right dose of Peter Pan {in my opinion!}

What do you think of the space?!
Happy Monday!
