Ean’s Nursery: Modern Sophistication for a Baby Boy

Pin It

Just because babies are tiny and cute doesn’t mean that your nursery has to be childish. Ean’s parents created a space for the newest member of their family that matched their home’s modern style.

Child’s Name: Ean

Child’s Age: 10 months

Location: Springfield, MO

What was your inspiration for the room?

I would have to say our biggest inspiration for the room was color. We knew we wanted a nursery that was vibrant and fun for our little guy. We spent lots of time looking online and in stores for inspiration then created a room that we are happy with.

Describe your decorating style.

Vintage meets modern.

Details About the Room:

Paint: Sherwin Williams Parakeet & Smokehouse. My husband and I created our own stencils for the circles.

Crib, Bookshelf, Changing Table and Armoire: Purchased from Wood You Furniture. We chose to purchase unfinished furniture because we loved the quality and the price! My husband and family friend (Dean Anderson) finished all of the pieces and we couldn’t be happier with them.

Chair: Storytime Swivel Glider from Babynews.

Bedding: Green Elephant 4 Piece Baby Crib Bedding Set by Carters

Curtains: Handmade by my mother-in-law. My husband and I found the fabric at a local discount fabric store. My mother in law is extremely talented with a sewing machine and wanted to make something for her first grandchild’s room.

Lanterns: From an online store, Asian Ideas. This website has a wide variety of shapes and colors and are inexpensive. I love using these instead of a mobile, less expensive and more aesthetically pleasing.

Green Storage Bins, Lamp and Receiving Blankets: Target.

Uglydoll: www.uglydolls.com

Ean’s letters: DIY

Favorite Items:

I love the little details in the room: the lanterns, the ugly dolls, storage bins etc. They really help tie things together. I also really love my glider. My husband, family and friends went together to surprise me for my birthday a few weeks before Ean arrived. It is so comfy!


Enjoy every minute of getting your nursery ready for your little one, especially the time with your spouse. It is such a fun part of the process!

  1. what color of lanterns did you purchase on the Asian Idea website?

  2. I was wondering were you got the Letters EAN. i love them!

  3. What are the sizes of the lanterns?

  4. How did you paint the circles?

    • @Britney, Paint the wall first. Then you can create stencils in various sizes. You can cut them out of cardboard, chip board or card stock. You can even use a plate! Just trace the shape on the wall and paint it. The hardest part is trying to stay within the trace line when you paint. Hope this helps!

    Hello, I know this post is old but I love the design ideas. My husband and I are doing the same design for our new baby boy (due date 11/13/11). Can you tell me how you created your own stencils for the wall circles?


    • @Aysha Bowling, It’s really easy! Trace out the different sized circles to you want to use onto a large sheet of sticky paper (vinyl). Cut the circles out. Then tape the cut-out (not the circle) onto the wall and use it as a template. once the circle dries, you can remove and reuse. Hope this helps!

    adorable room!!! thanks for the ideas!!! what size paper lanterns did you use?

  7. Love the nursery!! Do you know what all sizes of circles you painted? We want to do circles in our 3rd baby boys room, but will probably do vinyl ones. There are so many options out there to choose from that I don’t even know where to start with sizes. All I know is that I want multiple sizes.

  8. this looks awsome i used the same idea for my lil mans rooom best ive seen

  9. maybe using blue white color also look excellent , btw I like the ornament like lantern

  10. I bought the lanterns, now how do I hang them from the ceiling?!?
