Henry's Tour de Nursery

Welcome to Henry's room! Come on in. Henry would like to show you around. He's very excited.

Check out this little hook with the cowboy boots on it! Henry has been hunting for something to hang his footed PJ's on in the morning.

He is very proud of this vintage cowboy fabric on his rocking chair. His mama got it on clearance for $6 a yard, which just excites Henry to no end. He loves a deal.

This chalkboard is a great way to create a "headboard," so Henry's crib can come out from the wall rather than be smashed up against it. Otherwise the whole room has this "spin cycle" effect, where all the furniture feels pushed up against the wall, with no dimension. This is Henry's decorating sense at work, I tell you.

He loves the shelf above his changing table, and keeps some of his favorite pieces up there. A boy needs something to look at when he's getting his diaper changed.

Above all, Henry is a worldly sort of cowboy, and wants to be reminded of this with a kitschy globe on his dresser. And check out his cowboy art, painted by his mama and aunt, next to the window.

Speaking of the window, he also loves how the chocolate-and-cream buffalo check curtains tie the room together. And P.S.? The curtains have a room darkening liner, perfect for those little cowboy naps! (Curtains from Pottery Barn Kids.)

Who knew an eight month old baby boy could have such a sense of style? Next stop: HGTV.

Henry's room looks terrific! You did a great job! I love the cowboy boot hook! It's perfect and the cowboy art looks great on the walls! He is a lucky little cowboy to have that fun room! : )

Nikki said...

What a great little designer! His room is adorable.

April Pantall said...

I love it! And all of it will work as he grows older :)

Richella said...

That Henry! What a lot of talent in a precious little bundle! His room looks awesome.

EntertainingMom said...

Stunning!!!! I especially love the first shot of him sitting on the floor. Does he have a rocking horse? I think he needs one ;)

Seriously, I think clothing and decorating for boys is so much fun because it is more of a challenge to make it special and good looking and not generic.

You have outdone yourself!

Amanda said...

Darling Carrie! I love the brown...esp. the dot shade and buffalo check panels. I just saw a choc. brown minky dot change pad cover on sale too at b.r.us too that would be a fun extra to have. Hope all is well, can't believe he is 8 months already!

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

Oh that Henry! What a good design eye he has. He takes after his momma. His room is so darling! Please thank him for the tour for me. Seeing him in the first picture totally made me smile. :)

Lana said...

I love touring Henry's room! The cowboy theme is just precious!

Marla said...

It turned out great! I love the use of browns & reds...rather than the too common blues & greens. Nice job Henry!

Amber said...

Precious! The cowboy boot hook and the vintage fabric on the chair might be my favorite details. The paintings are so adorable in their spots by the curtains. I love that Henry can totally "grow into" his Western room as a big boy too.

Tasha said...

Love it. You are seriously A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Seriously.

Jboo said...

Adorable!! I knew your Henry would have a great sense of style too! Sign him up for the next HGTV designstar competition -- he's sure to win!

Hope y'all have a good weekend!

He certainly is a talented designer! Is he available to come over and help me with my new project? It's actually a footstool/small ottoman. Perhaps you could provide some insight? :)
