We’ve followed “The Guncles” Bill Horn and Scout Masterson’s growing family for their daughter’s sweet birthday parties and big girl room makeover. We are so pleased to be showing off their latest adventure—baby Bosley, or Boz for short. When we congratulated them on the news of their baby boy, we couldn’t wait to get a peek at the nursery, and it did not disappoint. So please join us as we take a tour around the space and hear about a few of the details from the happy dads themselves.
We discussed many, many themes, but we didn’t want to duplicate someone else’s look, and we didn’t want to pick a current trend. We were searching cool wallpapers online and came across this amazing medieval castle and dragons design from Paper Boy London. We had the wallpaper and some of the matching fabric shipped stateside, and the whole look of the room came together from there. Boz loves to stare at the wallpaper.
We painted the book wall the same dark blue color of the castles and dragons in the wallpaper. We had the other two walls painted a very, very pale blue to match the background of the paper and serve as a slight contrast to room’s moldings, shutters and stark white ceiling.
We are obsessed with this custom made duc duc Regency 4 drawer dresser and changer. We really wanted a piece in blue to tie in the wallpaper, and the dresser is so well made, we know we’ll have it forever.
We love the Sleepi Crib (currently in its bassinet form). It’s on wheels, so it can easily be wheeled anywhere in the room or in the house. As the Mini bassinet, it fits nicely next to our bed.
The daybed was the first piece of furniture for the room. With Boz moving into our only guest room, we needed an extra place for guests to stay, and it’s great for late night feedings.
On the one dark blue wall, we hung eight of the Straight and Narrow Bookledges from The Land of Nod in white so we could display tons of Boz’s new and antique books—lots about dragons.
