Sheep Nursery

House & Home

June 22, 2017

our first step in getting started on the nursery was to call the exterminator. glamorous i know. and once that was all taken care of (listen, farmhouse problems aka field mice).. once that was all taken care i felt like i could move on to getting started taking care of the nursery. it was a bit hard to decide on a theme/colors etc because we don’t know what we are having (even though i’m convinced in my head it’s a boy). i thought black is chic and neutral and always slimming. oh wait, talking about baby room here. well… hopefully having a black room will make me look skinny after this baby comes haha.

i knew i wanted to do something with a statement and something that was meaningful or fitting for our house. i am obsessed with my sheep and most of my farm animals in general so i thought sheep was a sweet theme for a baby room and when i found this wallpaper i was hooked. like no turning back. i had to have it. i scoured the wallpaper direct site for a good few hours just to make sure but i kept coming back to this paper. it was perfect. and i feel like it can stay up for a long time. it’s not so specifically baby.


the wallpaper calculator was super simple to use and their customer service helped me verify the quantity of rolls i needed. (math was never my strong suit). the wallpaper came within a week and it was absolutely beautiful. now if only it came with someone to install it. luckily my mom’s friend carolyn is a perfectionist when it comes to wallpaper and she lent us a helping hand. and by helping hand i mean did all of it. she did a perfect job. the seams are all matched up perfectly… i could have never done this. once the wallpaper was hung i really just went to town shopping around for the goldfish. i was obsessed with this crib and had to make it work. it’s this beautiful metal rose gold crib. it weighs like a million pounds (or 70) and is just absolutely stunning. i’m thinking about accessorizing with an emerald green or a maroon red…. which i still think are totally gender neutral.
nurseryi still need a few bigger things like a changing table, dresser and a new fan. this one isn’t bad but it’s not my favorite especially with the rose gold crib. i want something a little more modern. the curtains i ordered online and are a large print black and white buffalo check. my friend dann urged me to go with a contrasting pattern. you know i like to mix and match and i’m obsessed with the way they really popped against the wallpaper and gave it a little edgy country look. i’m excited to keep going and put away all of the goldfishes things and get organized but i think this is a pretty good start!

HUGE thanks to wallpaper direct for helping me out with this room. Be sure to check out their site for an amazing selection of wallpaper and more!

    I’ve been working with wallpaper direct, too, for my own bedroom. I am terribly intimidated by wallpaper paste and measuring and hanging and all of it. Sigh….
    Alas, I love your choices. I love everything rose gold so ….. that crib! Have you considered placing it smack dab in the center of your room? I kind of love a crib in the center like that.

      Love the idea of putting the crib in the center. Maybe a big round cozy rug and the crib on top of that?!

  3. Girl, this nursery is so so good. My Mom also has a sheep herd and she would adore this wallpaper. Love the mixed prints!
