This room was so fun to put together. The original thought behind the theme of this room was based around the hashtag I use for Gentry when I snap pictures of him sleeping: #GentSleeps. After I had that idea pop into my mind, I thought how easy it would be to have black and white and since that seemed to be the trend that I was finding myself being attracted to – it just all worked out! The great thing about having a monochrome themed room is that its so easy to find anything black and white. And if you can’t find it (or afford it), its super easy to PAINT it or something less expensive! (which I did for a few things in this room) I also decided that I wanted to #shopsmall as much as I could for this room update. Back when I did Gentry’s nursery, I didn’t know much about shopping small on Instagram (but I was VERY familiar with Pinterest!!!) So this was so fun getting little pieces here and there from different shops all the while tying in with the thread throughout the design – Instagram.

But before we dive into the room, lets see what it looked like before. I originally had this room as a Gentleman’s Quarters theme for Gentry’s Nursery.
