Puppy Themed Baby Boy Nursery

GUYS! I'm so excited to finally be sharing Cooper's nursery with you guys. He's been with us for two weeks now (I seriously need time to slow down!!) but his due date was yesterday so I don't feel TOO bad for not having it done ahead of time. As most of you guys know we also moved when i was 7.5 months pregnant and then immediately started renovations on our second floor which is the kids space.

The nursery is the first complete room in the house done and I think it's my favorite room I've ever done.

I revealed my inspiration for the nursery way back here. I wanted something that was sophisticated yet still felt young. I knew I wanted a wallpaper accent wall and our new house HAD THE PERFECT WALL to add wall paper too.... See the very end of the post.



I wasn't positive how I was going to make the nursery feel young but one day Aspen and I were at my grandparents house and my grandma got out the vintage puppy dog stuffed animal that was my moms and i knew immediately I needed to use it in Coopers nursery. Aspen loves Barney and is getting her first lesson in sharing haha.

This puppy dog is what inspired the puppy dog theme that was carried through out and makes the room feel like a sweet little boys room.


I still need to get a lamp for the side table but since having Cooper my outings have decreased. I swear, Aspen and I were at Target every day but Coop and I have had appointments to go to almost every day it seems so we haven't gotten any Target therapy in yet.




I wanted a mixture of light and dark blues in the nursery and found this pillow and wall tapestry at TJ Maxx and they were perfect to carry the dark blue color into the room.


Amy loves basking in the sun in the nursery and also LOVES Cooper. 









The puppy romper was a $3 score from a consignment sale and is absolutely perfect. I also love the subtle doggy swaddle.



I originally thought baby boy clothes weren't near as cute as baby girl clothes but boy was I wrong. I've loved finding cute outfits for him and putting his closet together.


I absolutely love Cuddle and Kind dolls and this one was perfect for the room.


My absolute FAVORITE part of the room is the custom print we had done of our dog Amy by Lavender and Clover.



It took me awhile to figure out what i wanted on the dresser wall and ultimately ended up deciding to do floating shelves. The prints in the frames were something i purchased quite some time ago during a Nordstrom anniversary sale. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them but think they are perfect on these shelves.



I snagged up the hamper during one of Serena and Lilys 20% off sale and love it as well.


The puppy playmat from Pottery Barn was one of the last things I purchased for the room. Fun fact, it's actually hiding an oil stain from the nail gun machine. oops.




I hunted for the perfect baby book for quite some time and decided to go with this one from Sugar Paper. The dog figurine is actually a bottle opener from my beer drinking days (I think those are temporarily over??).


Yup, Leah @ Lavender and Clover did a wonderful job doing the custom print of Amy. I put her in a frame from Target.


I also debated for quite some time if i was going to get a second crib. I ultimately decided to get one. Mainly because i fell in love with this BabyLetto crib.



Cubed storage in closets is my favorite. Right now we have a bunch of cutesy stuff but eventually we will have bins that will store all the baby necessities. 



I loved the natural wood legs on this crib.


To tie in the natural legs on he crib i found these natural wood pegs on amazon to hang stuff on.



Before I share sources for everything, lets just remember what this room used to look like:


Upstairs consists of three rooms (Coopers, Aspens and a playroom) and a bathroom. We did all new trim, windows, doors, paint, lights, electrical outlets and a complete bathroom remodel. So we didn't have to put 1,000 coats of paint on the rainbow wall, we wall-papered.

For paint we used Alabaster on the walls and gray screen on the trim and doors. Both Sherwin Williams.
