Navy Nursery Inspiration Boards

Yesterday we looked at an inspiration board for a Chinoiserie Chic nursery for a baby girl with my color of the year navy. This inspiration board is for a nursery for a baby boy with stylish parents. It features blue elephant wallpaper, the same navy crib I used yesterday in the baby girl's nursery to show how it can be used for a boy or a girl, navy and white striped wing chairs piped in red (Furbish), navy dupioni silk curtains, a red pagoda cabinet, a vintage palm chandelier spray painted Chinese red, an elephant step stool, and a child's size Chinese red Ming Dynasty chair. Note how the use of round bulbs in the chandelier gives it a more fun and young vibe - a great tip to borrow. I love the idea of a pair of wing chairs so both Mom and Dad can hang out in the nursery.

Here is an alternative version using many of the same pieces including the crib with navy blue linen but with more use of red with the additions of the Scalamandre Zebras wallpaper, red silk lampshades, and Ikea Lack side tables.
