Baby Boy: Bird Theme Nursery Design & Decorating Ideas

Inspired by posts on baby boy nursery designs and gender neutral nursery designs, this gorgeous nursery was designed by a Simplified Bee reader for her baby boy. The new mother with nesting instincts wanted to incorporate birds into the room’s decor and did so without over doing it.

Here is a peek into the nursery from the door. The room’s calming neutral palette of beige, brown and white is accented with pops of baby boy blue. A cozy roll arm swivel glidder and ottoman by baby&child Restoration Hardware in toast with white pipping is the perfect form and function. The chair’s “b” letter pillow in chocolate and indigo from Serena & Lily is fun way to personalized the room.

The whimsical tree and bird mural was handpainted by the homeowners in an interior latex paint, called flax by Restoration Hardware (over Kelly Moore’s 230 Graystone). As a guide, they used an overhead projector to project a sketch of the image on the wall. And who says little boy rooms can’t have chandeliers? I love the Bronze Ella Chandelier by Pottery Barn Kids that was selected to hang off center. The rich bronze matches the window treatment hardware, also by Pottery Barn Kids. Cotton sailcloth panels {Pottery Barn Kids again} frame the window and pull in more icy blue accent color. And the fabulous black mid-century modern chair with white leather cushion was once in the home of the baby’s great-grandmother.

More modern elements. DwellStudio’s Dot Brown crib bedding reminiscent of pop-art designs and modern geometric motifs of the mid-20th century is a wonderful contrast to the antique white crib.

This vintage dresser was a great flea market find! The new mom had a new coat of fresh paint applied, added clear glass knobs and positioned a changing pad in white to transform the dresser into a highly functional changing table. The bird renderings and branch leaf lamp with blue shade from Pottery Barn Kids adds touches of color.

Another vintage dresser passed down from a proud grandmother is darling painted white with new glass knobs to match the changing table. The round mirror is a nice addition and reflects the light in the room beautifully.

On the dresser sits chatty garden birds, a patient frog prince and a matching Pottery Barn Kids branch leaf lamp. The new mom also incorporated a crystal wreath that echos the round mirror and dresser’s glass knobs.

This room was also photographed beautifully by one of my favorite local photographers, Jennifer Jacobson. Do you remember this post about her?

    Hi Alison, the rocking horse was from Pottery Barn Kids.

    This nursery is by far one of my very favorites that I've seen. I also bought the initial pillow from Serena & Lily for my little boy's nursery. He is due in 5 weeks! I love the little rocking horse too! Where is that from?

    The homeowner found the bird prints online, but couldn't remember the site.

    What a great room! I love it because it can totally grow with the little boy who lives there. From babies to teens it would totally work.

    What a lovely nursery! I don't have kids, but your nursery posts may just be my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the little sentimental details like the chair from great grandmother and the vintage dresser from grandma. It all came together beautifully!
