From a Nursery to a Big Boy Room

Toronto designer Emma Reddington recently unveiled the new room she designed for her son Henry on her blog The Marion House Book.

His nursery was bright and cheerful anchored by a wonderful tree mural by his crib.


For his big boy room Emma went with a nautical theme but in a very subtle, understated way. She used a dark navy on the walls and curated vintage elements such as his bed, a Union Jack flag and a collection of old cork buoys. She created toy and book storage by joining old crates together and attaching them to the wall. I love the mix of items and textures and his room feels so cosy. Definitely a space he will grow into.

Such a great space for a little boy.

What do you think?
