Sawyer’s Baby Nursery

colorful nursery decor

Sawyer’s room is a special place for our little family. When we moved into our house just before Christmas, his room was the first and only one to be unpacked and decorated before the holidays.  So it became a refuge of sorts. Our place to hang out. A place that felt like home.  There’s no particular theme–just a room full of things that bring happiness.  We love handmade in our home–and we especially love supporting businesses that put their heart and soul into their creations. Perhaps that is why I’m in my happy place in this room–because the majority of what I’ve used comes from artists that I know and love. Many of you have sent emails asking about particular items, so I’ve put together a post showing you where everything is from. Let’s take a closer look, shall we.


This new crib bedding was all custom designed by Drawstring Studios.  They have a bunch of awesome stuff in their shop, but the best part is that if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for you can chose any fabric from anywhere and they will make you a custom order. So when I stumbled on this fun polka dot, primary color fabric by Michael Miller, I knew I had to have it as a crib sheet–they made it happen!  The crib skirt is perhaps my favorite.  It is two tiered, and the bottom tier is removable for when Sawyer grows and I need to lower the mattress.


These sweet curtains were also made by Drawstring Studios.  They were designed to reach the ground in my previous house, but the windows are super high in our new home so they are up off the floor a bit.

SPECIAL OFFER: Drawstring Studios will be including one of these super soft, adorable and completely custom t-shirts (or onesies) from La Fille Tees for free with your purchase from their shop. Offer can be used on Curtains (not sale items), Nursery Sets, and/or crib skirts (Shirts up to $18 value). After your purchase, Drawstring will contact you get customization details for your kiddos shirt.

Crib play sessions are a regular occurrence around these parts.  Wesley never liked to be in his crib, and I’m determined to teach sawyer that his crib is a safe, comforting and fun place to be.

    What a lovely bright room. Perfect for a growing and developing little boy! I love handmade too. Those curtains are just perfectly imperfect. 🙂

    Oh I just had to post (from England) to say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this room and ALL the items within it. Such a wonderfully happy and bright space for a little one (and the rest of the family!).
    I have ALWAYS been obsessed with grey and yellow together so some of these items just scream at me but I am also currently a little bit in love with chevrons so imagine how much i want to eat everything shown here (including your delectable little cherub!)
    Keep up the amazing work! xxx

      Oh and I adore the blanket with the flags on resting on the back of the rocker. Didn’t see the supplier listed, any chance you could tell me? I’m a bit obsessed with bunting flags! x

    I can’t imagine a kid not loving this nursery! What a bright and fun place. I think the best part though is that they will feel all the love that surrounds them there. I especially love how you matched the bright primaries with the soft grays and integrated the word art.

    The room is adorable but I can’t believe the boys, if Sawyer was alittle bigger they could pass as twins. I love their deep dimples. I don’t how you get anything done because I would set and play all day. Give them a big hug from me. Love, love, love.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your room, maybe in part because I have a very similarly colored playroom in my own home! I haven’t repainted the walls yet, which are a various shade of cream and I hate it lol but I wanted to do a tan as it is fairly neutral but I feel would compliment the bright colors. Do you happen to know what color your walls are in this room? I am still on the hunt for the right shade of tan lol. Don’t want it too dark, too yellow, too pink or too green lol

    Perhaps because of Herve Leger Replica how we show our pieces, or just the assumed way of Herve Leger,
