I went with a color scheme of gray and yellow which I thought could definitely grow with him. And I wanted it to be cute but not overly babyish.
We started off by having the walls painted in Benjamin Moore's Gray Horse. Basically I googled "gray nurseries" and this was the color that came up the most. It's not too dark or too light and feels very warm and cozy. I absolutely love this shade of gray.
It's hard to tell from the pictures but the rug is a 9x12' wool berber remnant in a cream and yellow check. I purchased it from a local carpet store and it was a steal at $299. I can't tell you how amazing carpet remnants are. You get a fabulous, high quality rug for the fraction of the price. I love West Elm rugs as much as anyone but they are thin, thin, thin. The key to carpet remnants is to look for wool berber rugs instead of the plush rugs that is typical in wall to wall carpet.
Aside from the paint color, the curtains are my favorite part of the room. I knew I wanted a wide yellow and white stripe but I was having a hard time finding the right fabric. Then I discovered that West Elm had exactly what I wanted but it was a shower curtain. But after measuring the windows I realized I could use the shower curtains as drapes by just cutting them down the middle and hemming each side. It was soo easy and not to mention cheap! The shower curtains were just $39 each and for that price I got two panels. Usually one curtain panel costs more than that! I was thinking about lining them with a blackout liner but I was lazy and decided to use a blackout shade instead. Eventually I'd like to embellish the shades a la House of Fifty, but I'm saving it for a rainy day.
The crib sheet is from Carousel Designs. They have a fabulous selection of crib bedding in beautiful patterns and designs.
The glider is probably my least favorite part of the room. I really wanted an upholstered glider but we bought this glider while we were still in the rental. We needed a chair that could come apart to get up the super narrow stairs to the master bedroom so this was our only option. But really I can't complain. A glider is a glider and this one works perfectly.
Etsy is my go-to for children's prints. The selection is endless and there are just so many cute designs. I'm going to do a post on all my favorites because it can get overwhelming sorting through them all. The designers for all these prints are listed below in my source list.
Finally, here are some detail shots of Cam's room.
All in all, I'd say he likes it! I hope you enjoyed the tour!
