Baby Benjamin and His Soft, Neutral Nursery

Soft, Neutral Nursery

This beautiful, soft nursery is home to baby Benjamin, son of Carolyn of LuxeLucy who found inspiration for the design in a adorable gray owl from Pier 1. From there, she pulled together this gorgeous nursery in neutral tones that has the perfect mix of vintage, rustic, and classic pieces. A sweet touch is the addition of all the little animals, from the The Animal Print Shop photos to to the fun West Elm owl pillow. Jessica Smith Photography captured all of these beautiful photos, along with a darling newborn session in Benjamin’s home. Jessica shared some details about the shoot with us:

“For Benjamin’s newborn session we focused on capturing their family in their own space and used only props and things that were a part of their home. Mike and Carolyn’s joy to finally have Ben in their arms was contagious, so I was able to really focus on that and their new relationship with this sweet boy.”

    Wondering if you could let me know the colours you picked for the bumper & skirt. Are they quilted linen pebble & flax or whisper linen fawn?
