THE PAINT COLORS
The walls, trim, and doors were sprayed BM Lehigh Green/Parsley snips (Eggshell), and the ceiling is 50% Farrow Ball Light Blue and 50% BM White Dove (matte). I absolutely love this shade of green – it’s not too dark and not too light.
Depending on the time of day, it reads deep dark green-blue to light forest-y green. It’s my favorite dark green paint I’ve used yet!
THE WINDOW TREATMENTS
I used this Calico fabric for the drapes and I am smitten with how they turned out. The pom trim is such a sweet little detail that truly makes them feel special.
I’m continuously blown away by Calico’s customer service, products, and installation team, and have spoken to others who can also attest to their products & services. I learn something new about window treatments every time I visit my local store and work with one of their designers (they offer free design services).
Their window treatment guide is really helpful if you’re interested in learning about the (many) types of window treatments.
I found the unicorn oushak rug on page 489 of Etsy but it wasn’t large enough to fill the room (it’s 7×9), so I went to my fav eBay rug shop that sells manufactured damaged rugs for a deep discount and got a 10×10 seagrass rug to layer underneath.
THE MOLDING & DOORS
The Metrie New traditional molding and casing throughout was here from my office makeover (which matches the molding installed in other rooms), but we added Metrie’s casing for our new closet doors and entry door.
The doors were replaced by our contractor – I believe they’re standard hollow-core Masonite. You can see the before photos here.
One of my favorite artists – Alexis Walter – truly created the most special commission for this room. I sent her the color palette and she created such a gorgeous, serene piece of art that I will forever cherish.
The bunny art was a print from Saatchi – a fun play on the Radish fabric
THE CASE GOODS
The antique bamboo dresser was a Facebook Marketplace find. Bamboo is a classic and I think this piece would work wonderfully in any room – but especially in a baby boy’s room. I decided to take an asymmetrical approach to style the mirror and lamp and I really like how it turned out.
The second chest – a beautiful French Linen Etienne dresser – which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time – was generously gifted by Frontgate. I was drawn to the classic Louis XVI style shape, brass-ring handles and cast escutcheons.
Unlike a true French antique, it has some useful modern features like smooth-gliding drawers, a power outlet and USB port (!!!!)
You may be wondering if the closet door is able to fully open with the dresser there and the answer is no, but I don’t need it to fully open. It opens wide enough and the extra storage was more important to me in that corner than fully opening the closet door that doesn’t need to be fully opened.
I’m thrilled with how the black ceramic Emtek closet knobs (I used the black ceramic on a #8 rosette unlacquered brass backplate) look on the closet doors.
For the entry door, I went with the same #8 rosette unlacquered brass backplate with the Astoria knob.
I found a cheap Restoration Hardware glider on FB MP that I had reupholstered in this performance fabric by Calico. It was my first time having something reupholstered with them and I’m so pleased with the way it turned out. Bambino and I will be spending a lot of time in this comfy and stylish rocker!
Hollie of Stuck on Hue now has some of these adorable Radish Moon pillows stocked on her website in case you love this pattern as much as I do.
I ordered one yard of fabric through Hollie (did you know you can order designer fabric & wallpaper through her?) and Christine of Nouvelle Vie recovered the scalloped ottoman cushion.
The scalloped ottoman was also generously gifted by Mainly Baskets Home. It’s so chic and I like how the shape adds a feminine touch to an otherwise masculine space.
THE CLOSET WALLPAPER
The Sandberg Raphael light blue wallpaper in the closet is my favorite part of the room. Unfortunately, the closet system I ordered didn’t come in time for the reveal, but I’ll share photos once everything is set up.
It really makes the closet feel like a hidden gem. I just love opening and closing the doors. Every single time it’s like… “surprise” lol
THE CRIB BEDDING
Biscuit Home was kind enough to gift this Cornflower pique crib skirt, this Katie Cornflower boudoir pillow, and this Cornflower crib sheet and it all works perfectly with the rest of the scheme.
I plan to complete this needlepoint when I’m in *nesting* mode
Before (my office, which was a blast while it lasted):
I want to ake a moment to acknowledge the generous brands and small businesses who gifted/discounted items to make this nursery extra special. I really cannot thank them enough!

Thank you so much Mitzi!!
After months of watching your stories and design process, baby’s room is amazing! I especially love the needlepoint (lol) and inside closet. It reminds me of the very 90’s Peter Rabbit themed nursery for my own baby boy but not nearly as fabulous.
Awww thank you!!!

Oh, this is magnificent, Absolute perfection! Your son is one lucky baby boy!! If I was visiting, I’d spend half my time gawking at the closet wallpaper! So fun, and beautiful.
Enjoy your nesting period and take it easy before baby arrives. How sweet to see his bringing home clothes on the crib.
Congratulations on your upcoming blessed event.
With love and prayers,

This is beyond stunning. You are such a talented designer. This room will last forever. If I see a picture of it 20 years from now, it will still be stylish.
Now that all of your hard work is done, enjoy your downtime before the baby comes.
Thank you so much for the kind words, Mary!!
I adore it so much! Timeless yet unique. So very precious ☺️
Thank you Amanda!!!
So so good! You know it’s good when I’m staring at each photo for 15 minutes, checking out every single detail 😍
HAHHAHA aww thank you!!!
Hollie Rich - Stuck on Hue says
Eek! It all looks so classic, yet whimsical, and will be a beautiful place to spend your time with bebe. I know how hard it was not to go all-out floral, but the Radish fabric for the pillow and ottoman is so fun, plus the peek of Raphael paper in the closet is the chef’s kiss. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this special room!
Thank you so very much for the kind words Hollie!!!
Jan Rogers says
Absolutely beautiful Alisa! I knew it would be. Love your style so much. So excited for your baby boy to come!
Thank you so much Jan!!!
I am just dying over this incredible space and the fact that people are saying the baby will kick the lamp off the dresser as if they are born a UFC fighter🤣 Congratulations on your sweet boy on the way and an absolutely stunning nursery for him to come home to!!
HAHAHAHAH!! Thank you!!!
Melodee Forbes says
Omg! Wow! The green is PERFECT! I mean perfect! Actually the entire room is breathtaking. You really nailed it, Alisa! Congratulations on baby Bovino, he will most certainly feel so loved!!!
Thank you so much Melodee!!!
it’s beautiful!!!! congratulations on your baby boy!
Thank you Christina!!!!
Every detail is so perfect! The door knob, what an unexpected and perfect detail! I love how you pair new with old and it’s picture perfect for baby’s arrival! So so so sweet!!
Thank you so much Gail!!
Your vision brought to life! Stunning isn’t strong enough – absolutely speaks nursery but in a stylish, adult way. You knocked it out of the park! Now we wait for the bambino introduction!
Aw thank you so much, Denise 💚🥰
I have been looking forward to this reveal! I had so much fun designing our nursery for my (now 1 year old) son last year, and I see some similarities in our spaces. When I was nearing the end of my pregnancy, I would go in the nursery and sit and just enjoy the serene and finished space. And just FYI: I have had a nice lamp on our changing table for a year and it has never been a problem. 😉 I also have dimmable light bulbs and a remote so I can adjust the lighting from my rocker.
Congratulations on your baby boy and the nursery – I love all the interesting little details and layers of color and textures!
Awww thank you so much for sharing Meg!!! How amazing!
Kimberly Perry says
I love love this nursery and how it came together. We are expecting our first baby boy in August and I really love your paint colors. Did you mix these two colors together 50/50 for the walls? BM Lehigh Green/Parsley snips (Eggshell). Would love to use too and appreciate any help! It seems like they are two separate colors but maybe I am confusing myself. Thank you for the help!
