neutral, masculine nursery: week 1 (before pics and design plan)

when i found out that a good friend of mine was expecting her first baby, i was secretly hoping she would ask me to help her design the nursery. 
i was thrilled when she told me she was expecting a boy, and that she indeed wanted my help to design a special place for her new little guy.
as i started brainstorming, i looked over her pinterest board (as i do with all of my clients!) she had pinned a fair number of nurseries, and i definitely noticed a consistent theme of neutral, textures spaces with a hint of modern and an element of quirkiness. 

this is the design plan i came up with:

here are some BEFORE pictures:
as you can see, the room is a blank slate.
the only items that my client currently has are this alpaca rug and a vintage dresser. (see below)
the walls will be painted white, so that the textures will play center stage.

the dresser will be placed on this wall, with a gallery wall above it.

the wall will feature the crib, a wall lamp and a chair.

we are using the dresser on the design board as inspiration to transform this vintage piece:
my client has had it since she was a little girl. we are replacing the hardware and painting the drawers a creamy white.

i will be trying to post about this project once a week until it is completed, which should be in the next 4-5 weeks.

happy weekend!
