Scout's Nursery // Modern Explorer

We had so much fun planning another boy nursery for our Scout. His name to us represents an "adventurer", "outdoorsman" and an "explorer." So, we wanted a nursery that portrays not only those items but also has some modern and sophisticated elements. It came together very easily for us this second time and we couldn't be happier with how clean and bright it is. We were able to re-purpose some items from Sawyer's nursery and found some really great antique pieces that added a bit of charm. Shopping details listed below...
