Boaz's Name on the nursery wall spelled in wooden letters that  I decoupaged with butterfly print paper from Michaels crafts store.

Boaz's Eclectic Nursery w Black and White Cheetah Rug
Boaz's changing table repurposed  from being aTV cabinet from the 1980's  that I topped with a cheetah print pillow case!
The  roman shade (tutorial on my blog, John's Journal) using burlap fabric and ribbon.  I found the chair at an antique store and bought fabric to make the seat cover at an etsy shop.

Ikea wall art, a painting of a mom with her infant, was the inspiration for our baby boy's eclectic nursery décor. The colors in the project really take center stage.


I based the color scheme and overall feel of the room on that painting because I love the atmosphere and the colors.

The second point of inspiration was the butterfly prints I found at TJMaxx; butterflies hold the spiritual meaning of a new creation which perfectly suits a baby's nursery.




The challenge of this decorating project was the room's small size and that it had to serve a multi-purpose as a guest room, which meant that I had to keep the decor neutral.

The butterflies theme is also pulled in from the mobile and on the lettering of Boaz's name.

I bought the black and white baby bedding from Pottery Barn. It made a great match with the cheetah rug as well as the Goodwill changing table that I painted black and gold, all while staying relatively neutral.

All in all our baby boy's eclectic nursery decor is chic enough for an adult yet playful for a child!

From the webmaster:

Maria, you did a beautiful job of decorating your baby boy's room. If I were to choose my favorite of all your nursery ideas, my vote would be split between the cheetah print rug and the changing table. I predict that Unique Baby Gear Ideas' visitors that see your baby boy nursery pictures will create a run on retro television stands at the Goodwill store!

For those of you who have already started to request paint color recommendations and information on the fabrics and Roman shade window treatment tutorial, I emailed Maria, the mom who is the brains behind this eclectic nursery design to ask if she might share shopping resources and details regarding paint color and what not.

You mentioned that the framed print was your inspiration for your nursery's color scheme but the cheetah baby nursery rug is a real show-stopper! Where did you find it?
I found the cheetah throw rug at Cymax. It's acrylic faux fur, hypo-allergenic and eco-friendly with no formaldehyde, machine washable and best of all it cost less than $100! Plus, it looks amazing with the crib set that I bought at Pottery Barn as well as my dad's futon.

What wall paint color worked best with your mother and child artwork?
The neutral paint color that looked the best is called Martha Stewart Reed.

You told us that your primary inspiration piece came from Ikea. Did you find all of your nursery's wall decorations at Ikea?
No, the collection of artwork is as "eclectic" as the rest of the baby's room. I bought the butterfly prints at TJMaxx, the "Deeply Madly in Love" print came from madebygirl and the Bible verse print came from laybabylay.

If you would like to see more of Boaz's eclectic nursery decor, I suggest that you visit her blog, John's Journal here http://johnsjournal-maria.blogspot.com to see more pictures and for a tutorial on the DIY window treatments. Who knows; she might also accommodate this by posting a tutorial on how she up-cycled the vintage television cabinet. Am I the only one that thinks the combination of the cheetah print rug and the black and gold painted diaper changing table has an art deco look?

I love this website because it offers examples that are different and not your everyday, run-of-the-mill designs that have been used so often that they are boring. Thanks!

You deserve this recognition in this magazine. Your ideas are very unique. When Boaz finds out all the work you did, he'll give you many hugs and kisses!
