Sharing nursery inspiration is one of my favorite things to do here at Disney Baby, so you can only imagine how exciting it is to be sharing my own little one’s nursery with you here! As soon as I found out we were having a boy, I knew that I wanted the theme of his nursery to be something that felt cozy, woodsy and something that rang true to our Pacific Northwest roots. I knew there would be plenty of Pendleton wool (we live in Oregon and Pendleton is a local love here), and a lot of wood accents. My other reason for choosing this theme is that it allowed me to pull items I already had around my home and repurpose them as nursery items. This entire room cost a total of zero dollars (aside from the $10 I spent on DIY art supplies) because they were all items I already owned. Score! Good design doesn’t have to be expensive – it just requires a little bit of creativity. Hope you enjoy my little Clive’s room!
Real Nursery Inspiration: Clive's Woodland Adventurer Room
Take a peek at this Montessori inspired room that’s perfectly fit for a little adventurer!
Here is our changing area and where we’ll store most of our little man’s clothing. The dresser will serve as a changing table (I didn’t have the changing mat when I took these photos).
The gallery wall is a mixture of art I’ve collected and made over time. All of the prints were gifts from friends and/or artists and the felt banner is a DIY I made recently of a C.S. Lewis quote. I made the twig frames from sticks in our wooded backyard and that snowboarding trail map at the top is from our honeymoon in Whistler.
Creative storage details
Here’s a close up of the canvas army bag that’s housing some of our baby supply essentials. It’s super convenient for easily grabbing the things I need most often.

A wire basket is the perfect place for storing diapers and wipes!
Natural DIY wall art
This was a quick DIY wall hanging I whipped up at my baby shower craft night. Using natural elements in the decor brings the outdoors inside in a simple and inexpensive way.
This rocking chair was the one I used with my daughter Fern. It belonged to my great grandmother Fern. My grandma recovered it for us and I threw a remnant of Pendleton fabric over the back for added interest.
The shelf is an old fruit crate I got ages ago and has hung out in many rooms of our house, but I really like it in Clive’s room. So far I’ve filled it with woodsy themed books and foresty decor details.
Montessori floor bed
For the first couple of months Clive will be rooming in with us, but once he makes the transition to his own room we’ll be using a Montessori floor bed like we did with our daughter. The bedding is just meant to look cute for now, but he’ll only have a crib sheet once he’s actually using it.
