Seeing a nursery design come to life is definitely one of the most rewarding aspects of my job! Working alongside my client throughout the design process, seeing the look come together, photographing the space and finally sharing the spaces with you all—seeing each design come full circle is such a joy for me. In one of my latest nursery projects, my clients wanted their daughter’s new space to be light and bright with lots of feminine accents. They were hoping to reuse some of the nursery furniture they already had for her (like the crib and glider) while changing up the dresser and all the other accents.
The design was built around a stunning pink forest wall mural. I chose this mural to balance out the height of the crib wall (which was nearly 12 feet high). This balance would help the room to feel a bit more cozy. Because the room received a great deal of natural light, we chose to use custom made blackout roman shades along with blush curtains.
I wanted to make the glider area a cozy part of the space while still keeping things functional, so I paired the glider with a gold side table, a custom initial letter blanket, and a fun llama planter (to bring in some plant life). We also updated the hardware on the dresser with gold and lucite knobs to help tie this piece into the overall design.
After all the main pieces were nailed down, I then needed to find all the little decor and accessory pieces to fill out the space. I chose items in blush and gold, and added a few plants for greenery and stuffed animals for texture.
The most challenging part of this nursery design was the layout—there were many windows and doors which meant we had very little wall space for furniture placement. The room had a built-in shelving niche, so I suggested putting the changing table underneath it. To maximize the impact of the high ceiling, we added an amazing gold statement chandelier.
I also designed the nursery for the couple’s new baby boy, which is a modern and classic space.
