Boy’s Nursery/Guestroom

Hi, Irene from designstiles here.

Wanted to share a new nursery I’m working on. This was one a bit of a challenge since it’s fairly small and needs space for a guest bed. I always like a challenge and the idea of doing something different.

My client found this daybed that adapts to a two person bed. I’m actually liking this in lieu of a rocker or glider. And she can still nurse on this, albeit laying down. When I nursed, I felt more rested when I learned about the laying position. Amen.

Now we’re not going with a theme per se, mostly just filling it with modern, personal and some antique finds to create a room that feels unique and sophisticated and the daybed was sort of the jumping off point. We’re still playing around with items but here’s a first take on a concept board to see how everything plays out together.


White clean modern crib // existing paint color // black and white zebra sheets for cute drama // mom-to-be said she’s into foxes in glasses recently and I think this adds a quirky and humorous aspect // Love this two-toned walnut and white dresser/changing table. Clean lines, adds depth and definitely a piece baby can grow with. For additional lighting, was thinking a plug-in wall sconce with an accordion extension would give the room some visual interest // tower bookshelves to flank the daybed allow for storage and room to display some accessories. They’re not too wide so I imagine they would serve more of a book purpose, like this book // To give the room some global flair and represent the mother’s culture, a Persian rug to really ground the space and offset the modern pieces. I feel every room needs a little modern and vintage to feel balanced.

Happy Wednesday!

Nursery Mood Board


I’ve always loved primary colors in the nursery. They are perfect to incorporate into gender neutral nurseries or boy/girl shared rooms.

I do love this new Lolly crib by Babyletto!

Let’s Sail Nursery Inspiration Board

Irene here from designstiles (you may notice a logo change) sharing a nursery inspiration board for a good friend I’m helping. She’s a little over 6 months pregnant and expecting her first baby boy.

She already has a starting off point via a vintage piece of art she purchased and a vision of simplicity mixed with clean, fresh coziness.

Crib has been selected and we’re fairly certain of the wallpaper choice as well. Now it’s just a matter of figuring out the rest of the pieces to tie it all together.

We’ve bounced off ideas and I created this inspiration board with items I’d love to see utilized.


a cute sailboat mobile to coordinate with the vintage artwork.

an antique brass metal light fixture that feels slightly modern.

half moon mint wallpaper is cute and playful.

sparrow crib with clean lines to balance off the washed wood dresser.

wave crib sheet to echo the subtle sailboat theme.

an appropriately named sailor’s mirror to reflect light.

beautifully curved steel blue velvet glider to bring in texture and color.

adorable crochet plush toy feels jovial.

cozy flokati rug is perfect for baby to roll around on.

Can’t wait to make some final decisions.

Happy Wednesday!

Boy’s Adventure Nursery Concept

To start off the new year, I began working on a new nursery project. One inspired by adventure, industrial touches and the movie Moonrise Kingdom. The latter portion got me all kinds of excited because it’s so visually adorable I’m trying to make sure I hit the right notes.

Irene here from designstiles today, sharing the mood board I came up with based on the aforementioned concept. And one other thing, clients wanted to make sure some of the key pieces were organic to create a healthy environment for their baby boy.


The surfside paint color was already selected and then I chose a navy wool rug with backing made of recycled canvas to bring in warmth and texture. I think when you mix different shades of a similar color, they create a layered look giving the room some depth. That was my goal with the rug. And darker hues always feel more sophisticated. Plus, this will be better at hiding stains.

To complement the navy color, I selected bold striped curtains that feel light yet bring in a large over scale pattern for a small room, making the room feel bigger.

A ‘green’ mid century dresser will double as changing table and will be functional as the baby continues to grow.

Organic leaf motif bedding will add pattern to the simple streamlined crib.

A vintage bentwood rocker will be reupholstered in plaid fabric, which I chose after re-watching the movie and noticed the amount of plaid used inside of camp tents.

An industrial bin will serve as toy storage while industrial shelves will hold books and accessories.

An imagine print reminded me of the main character’s glasses and hope is serves as inspiration for this little boy. Adventure awaits is what’s written on the other image. A vintage Spain map is a nod to the mother’s travels.

A cute little camping stool, organic goodnight pillow and lantern are just a few of the details that give the room some personality.

So looking forward to seeing this room complete.

Happy Wednesday!

Rex’s Temporary Bedroom Goes PINK!


Last month I set Rex up in a temporary space while I finish putting together Rex & Harper’s shared bedroom: see it here.

Just for fun, I changed out a few accessories to make the bedroom a bit more girl friendly. I LOVE a white room. It is super easy to change out the color of accessories if you plan to use it for a different child one day. Or if you plan on turning it into a boy/girl shared bedroom.

So here is Rex’s bedroom gone PINK!




1. BlaBla Perchance Kitty Doll
2. White/Black Small Polka Dot Sheet Set, by Ralph Lauren (I purchased this sheet set over a year ago on clearance from TJ Maxx)
3. Magenta Pink Polka Dot Pillow Cases
4. Eco Pink Cross Baby Blanket
5. Make Your Own Banner Set, Black
6. Gold Mushroom Lamp by HEICO (if you are in the US you can purchase these at Sunday in Color)
7. Oh Deer Silhouette Print (I framed the print in a large/ornate frame from Home Goods. It was really ugly so I spray painted it white.)
8. Harper’s “H” Monogram Pillow (bought this when Harper was a baby, a pink or black throw pillow in any design would work!)
9. Mongolian Lamb Pillow Cover– Stone White (16″ Sq.)
10. White Milk crates (we use these to store toys, & I stacked 2 of them for his temporary night stand)

*Pink/black/white rug on the floor is from an Indian Reservation.
** Rex also has a MYSA RÖNN Twin Feather Down Comforter & DVALA Twin Duvet cover on his bed. (both incredibly inexpensive from IKEA!)

Rexy’s Temporary Bedroom


I’ve been busy prepping Harper & Rex’s new shared bedroom all week. After 3 days of painting and 3 coats of paint that still do not cover I’ve decided I’ll NEVER use this paint again! The carpet is gone & I am anxious to start on the floors.

These projects always take me way longer than I anticipate. I am the SLOWEST DIY-er you’ve ever met! So, I’ve set up a temporary space for Rex to sleep until the room is finished. I tried to give it some character & color.. really wanted to make it cozy for him. His fave color is GREEN so that is what I went with.

Yesterday I posted his little nook on Instagram & there was a lot of great feedback so I wanted to share the sources from the photo…



1. BlaBla Panda Doll
2. White/Black Small Polka Dot Sheet Set, by Ralph Lauren (I purchased this sheet set over a year ago on clearance from TJ Maxx)

Halloween Nursery Inspiration

We’ve reached the mid point of October which means the count down to Halloween is on! Are you ready? I think we are just about there. I was never really a huge Halloween fan myself, but somehow my children have more than warmed me up to the holiday. I am excited to decorate & dress them up, carve silly pumpkin faces, bob for apples and trick or treat, and of course read all of the fun Halloween children’s stories. This year I am loving all of the colorful and festive decor. My own Halloween decor tends to have a Día de los Muertos kind of feel. LOTS of colorful skeletons and CUTE Halloween things. (…you’ll find nothing bloody or zombie-like at our house!)

In honor of the Halloween season I decided to put together a few HALLOWEEN nursery mood boards. As a mama blogger and children’s decor fanatic I couldn’t help myself! Each nursery mood board below includes some of my favorite nursery decor items and is inspired by the colors of Halloween: GREEN, BLACK, ORANGE, YELLOW, WHITE, & PURPLE. The colors are inspired by Frankenstein, Bats & Dracula, Candy Corn, Ghosts & Mummies, Dracula, and Witches. I know that Halloween in this decade consists mostly of superheroes and princesses, but I really like to keep the holiday pretty classic!

Each of the three mood boards I’ve created trends on the modern side of decor and uses the same modern white crib, one of my favorites! Rooms are decorated and accessories are chosen based on a color combo theme. Mood Board #1 includes shades of green, white, and a bit of black. Mood Board #2 is inspired by the colors of Candy Corn: oranges, yellow, & white. Mood Board #3 is my favorite. It includes a bit of bright purple, subtle orange, a bit of gold, light wood textures, and vibrant white!

What do you think of these color combos? Would you use any of them in the nursery? & what colors do you decorate with for Halloween?

The Perfect Western Inspired Nursery // Frederic Remington

This is so out of the box for me. I typically steer so far from anything western feeling and especially cowboys, but I couldn’t help myself with Frederic Remington. His idealized American Western themes, so full of action and adventure, would be so fabulous in a little boys room!

artwork // garland // cowhide // armchair // mobile // bedding // throw pillow // map

My goal was to create a room perfect for a growing young boy that had a sense of the American West adventure with a little modern twist. By mixing geometric elements such as the bedding, pillows, and mobile with the action packed artwork and the organic cowhide rug, the western feel is able to be subtly accomplished. The world map helps to add to the sense of adventure while the bright colors and simple patterns add a sense of youthfulness.

What do you think? Something you could see in your favorite little boy’s bedroom?

Children’s Bedroom Inpiration: Get the Look


I love the bedroom in the photograph above. The entire room kind of plays off of the vintage botanical print. The bedroom feels a bit vintage, a bit eclectic, & has a few modern-ish accessories mixed in (wall light, miffy bag.) I thought it would be fun to try and recreate this bedroom feel with some online accessories. I started with a similar style vintage botanical chart from Etsy. They have soooo many fun charts to choose from & I really love this idea for children’s bedrooms.

What do you think? Do you like this style?

A Shared Bedroom

We’ve been living in our AZ rental home for about a month & a half now. It is quite a bit smaller than our home was in NJ, but somehow the outdoor living space more than makes up for the size! It is really only a 2 bedroom home- although we turned one of the oversized closet/storage rooms into a small bedroom for Rex. (his crib mattress fits perfectly between the corners of the room!)

One of the projects I am currently working on is converting Harper’s bedroom into a shared space for both Harper and Rex. I honestly never thought that I’d want bunk beds for them, but after browsing bunk beds for a few weeks I have fallen in love with some of the new modern styles. I’ve already picked out bedding from Little Auggie & decided on a somewhat “primary color” color palette with a few black accents. Nothing is really set in stone yet, I’m still experimenting.

What do you think? Any advice on how to set up a boy/girl shared bedroom? How would you accessorize this room?

Baby Acapulco Chair (red/white)

Pink, Orange & Yellow Nursery Mood Board

Happy Friday! Anyone doing any DIY work this weekend? I am hoping to pick up some paint and get started on Harper & Rex’s new shared bedroom. I’m excited for the challenge of creating a male/female space in 1 room!

So, do you have a color palette in mind for your nursery? One of my current favorite color palettes includes lots of pinks, oranges, & yellows. These HAPPY colors look fab on a white canvas so no need to paint your white walls! I’ve mixed in a few natural colored accessories so the room does not get to be too much. Thoughts? Too bright or just right?

Girl’s Nursery/Toddler Bedroom Mood Board

Once we move, Harper will be downsizing from a queen to a twin size bed. I’ve been bookmarking some of my favorite bedding choices & am having a hard time deciding. One of my favorite brands for children’s bedding is Little Auggie.

This inspiration board was inspired by the Rabbit Patch Printed Sham. I just love the colors of it as well as the rabbit & toadstool design. The Rabbit Patch design comes on a crib sheet, blanket, quilt, as well as a sleep sack. I may use the Rabbit Sham as inspiration for Harper’s new bedroom. How would you decorate a room around it?
