room for baby : navy blue

posted on: Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Mum, Jennifer, made the lovely spherical mobile.

Shallow shelves provide a handy display area for the favoured read of the week.

Jennifer chose grey-blue with red accents for her soon-to-be newborn son's space.

Masculine and tailored. Jennifer from Chris. Jen. Ben knew she wanted a calm space when it came to decorating her second son's room.

who lives here
Baby Nate - due in just over a month in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

The curtains are from Ikea, the 'N' wall decal is from Etsy, the wall frames are from Michaels, the fan is from Walmart and the cot linen and striped rug are from Pottery Barn Kids.

Jennifer used Behr paint in Prelude on the walls.

The cot and rocking chair are from Walmart, the wall shelves and dressers were purchased from Ikea and the bookshelf (not pictured here) and small red chair were garage sale finds.

The trio of frames above the cot and the shallow shelves from Ikea were originally black items that Jennifer and her husband repainted in navy blue. They also repainted their garage sale finds: the bookshelf was repainted white and the little vintage chair in glossy candy apple red. Jennifer also made the bright mobile hanging above the cot.

The bookshelf and the chair (above) that Jennifer snatched up for only $10 USD.

top tips
Jennifer says, "I knew I wanted colour but also a calm room. The white furniture helped bring in a little balance to help me reach that goal. My advice is to check your local classifieds and garage sales - you never know what gems you might find! Best of all you'll probably find a unique piece."


  1. Dr Seuss = childhood essential.
    The subdued wall colour really works with the navy frames and shelves.

  2. Gorgeous blue room! Seriously more wonderful than my own bedroom. lol! I love how they repainted so many items in the room, it looks amazing.
