Baby Reed's Nursery - Room of a Future Academic

by JB

Baby Reed's nursery decor is both rustic and educational as well as charming and that is the first thing that our visitors comment on when they come for a tour. At second glance; it's obvious that the design of this grey nursery for a baby boy is as much about the love of reading as it is about appealing interior design.



His mom, Liz, is an educator with a love of books that she looks forward to sharing with her son.

She features lots of activities and free printables on her blog to keep kids busy, engaged and enthusiastic about school and life in general.

The reading nook in this warm and inviting cream-y white and gray nursery is a comfortable space where Reed and his parents can spend hours and hours enjoying the books whose colorful jackets add a POP of color and fun to their baby boy's nursery décor.



Here's a shopping list for those of you that would like a similar wall paint color, nursery curtains or baby bedding set for your own little one's room.

Mom bought the:

  • window treatments at West Elm
  • bookshelf, crib and changing table (the Fillmore set) from Pottery Barn Kids
  • floating bookshelves from (regular) Pottery Barn
  • nursery glider from PoshTots
  • Harper nursery baby bedding collection from Pottery Barn


and the gray wall paint color is a Benjamin Moore paint called Timber Wolf Gray.

Who can doubt that this precious child will have an academic mindset given his early exposure to such a broad range of reading material?




The floating shelves place the artwork on the books' covers where he can see and enjoy them even when they are closed. Dr. Seuss, Nursery Rhymes, the ABC's and many other titles are ready and waiting to delight and entertain while snuggling with mom and dad in the beautiful, comfortable chair chosen for this room.

Books can also provide an interesting place for a little fellow to take a quick nap!



I love the ideas that photographer, Rachel Elaine, of Rachel Elaine Photography had for Reed's newborn pictures. They are totally adorable and send the message that reading skills are the foundation of a happy and fulfilled life.

Is this the face of a future academic? Only time will tell which path he will choose.

And when it's time for life's decisions to be made, he will make them with the love and support of his family.

I hope that the visitors of Unique Baby Gear Ideas have enjoyed seeing Liz's baby boy nursery pictures and that everyone will stop by to see Liz at of the The Happy Teacher to see more photos and the excellent educational information that she shares there!

It is never too young to direct a child into academic studies. Displaying books in the baby's nursery in a colorful and fun arrangement is a good way to catch his or her eye!

A Nursery Filled with Books
by: Wendy

I have always dreamed of spending time with my family in a room filled with books rather than the usual electronics. Reading forms connections while television seems to isolate. It's good to see another parent who understands the importance of an early introduction to reading material!

I love the DIY bookshelves. I just wonder if a beginner such as myself could manage this project with basic woodworking tools?

LOVE this nursery.
by: Lindsay

Baby Reed has the cutest little nursery. I think it will be easy to transform as he gets older as well. You can just see how much love Mama Liz has to give by how much time and thought she put into Reed's room!

Inspiring theme for a nursery
by: Linda

What a great site this is for finding decorating and theme ideas! The varied bright colors of the book jackets really pop against the neutral gray walls in Reed's room. This little boy is going to love all the Mommy-and-Me-time reading all those books, and I bet he'll be an early reader too!

Very Very Elegant
by: Bunny

The furniture is beautiful. I also love the theme.
It is very different and I like that... Reed can grow with this furniture. You will not have too change it so often. You and your decorator were brilliant. KUDOS ELIZABETH

A Safe Haven
by: Liz Pledger

Reed is my sweet baby boy. He was born April 22nd, and in the past few weeks, we have spent many hours snuggled up in his warm, cozy room! His nursery is a peaceful and relaxing place to be. What I love most about his nursery is that he will be able to truly grow into it! I think the furniture, books, and wall sign will grow with him! :)
Thanks for your sweet comments everyone!

Baby Reed loves to read!!
by: Rachel Elaine Photography

I can't express into words how beautiful this family is inside and out. It's so beautiful as a photographer and friend to be able to photograph a baby's room that is focused on something that's so important today, education. I hope that this family gets the attention that they deserve on the most beautiful baby room ever!!

Inspiring room for future generations!!
by: Jude Young

What an absolute adorable,comfortable childs room.
The moment I opened this post I was drawn into a room I had not seen before. The selection of colors together with furniture etc. was perfect.
The floating book shelves is a great idea.
I must comment on those precious baby pictures of Reed. The pictures were unique; Reed on top of some of his mother's favorite books as a child; his picture with a bow tie and glasses; and a picture to catch the moment of three different feet to walk life together.
