American Frontier | Baby Highstreet's Nursery

Today I am unveiling Baby Highstreet's room design!!!  

We are currently still in progress working on the room itself, but things are coming along nicely.  I will be posting pictures of the real room in June/July when the baby arrives.  So check back then for the final product!

Our goal was to create a gender neutral space (since we are waiting to find out) that embodied our taste and surround our baby with some of my favorite most inspirational fine art.  I have always been fond of Colonial Home Decor as well as American Frontier & Western Fine Art, so this board is a good blend of those things!

We set up a sound system also and plan to play a lot of Johnny Cash!

This board features fine art from Edgar Payne {7} {25} (one of my biggest inspirations as a fine artist!), Marc Davis {28}, N.C. Wyeth {24}, and myself {21} {23}!

The print of "Paul Revere's Midnight Ride" by N.C. Wyeth {24} was a gift to me from my Grandpa a long time ago, so it is very dear to my heart.  I have kept it almost 10 years and finally got a change to frame it.  I am so delighted to have it my baby's room since it means so much to me.  "Study of a Hare" {21} & "Study of Geese" {23} are two of my very own art works!!!  Both are original pencil drawings that I been storing for a while and finally was able to frame them.  

The vintage Coca-Cola Crate {10} we picked up here locally at an antique store (Etsy is a great place to pick one up if you would like one for yourself).  Loving the Organic Southwestern Pillow {4}, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Sleeping Bunny Mischa Pillow by AllWildCo {5}!!!  It is even more darling in person, and one of the best perks is that it is organic too!!!  These days I can't get enough of Freshly Picked Moccasins {26} AND Olive & Andrew's crib sheets {27} absolutely love the Forest Trees Pattern especially!

I have always wanted a Colonial style Eagle Mirror {14}, still haven't picked one up yet, but I hope to some day.

Lots to do still in the baby room.  I'm hoping my energy will surface once again so we can get a move on!  Be sure to revisit the Blog in June/July for photos of the finished room!!

Don't forget to check out page 2 (below) as well!

Looking forward to welcoming Baby Highstreet!!

  1. I know this post is several years old, but I came across it while looking for inspiration for my son's room. While we ended up with more of a mountain/wilderness theme, I found it crazy that I have items very similar to a couple of the vintage items in your boards. From my grandmother's house almost identical paint by numbers (that she painted... Her story was that she was painting them the day President Kennedy was shot) and little dog figurines. I really need to do a hunting dog room!

    1. Hi! What a coincidence! It's so great when we can use items we already have to decorate! Thanks for sharing your grandmother's story too. Hunting Dog room is such a cute idea!! I'm so glad you found this post inspiring and thanks for saying hello!


I love hearing from you! Looking forward to your comments!
