As promised, here are the details for the nursery I’ve been working on in Orange County. This particular nursery is unique because we designed it two ways: one option for a girl and one option for a boy. My client didn’t want to know the sex of the baby in advance, so we created two full options!
Since we wanted to get as much of the nursery design installed in advance as possible, that meant that most of the items we chose for the space are gender-neutral like the acrylic crib, bench, curtains, changing table, glider and chandelier. Then we chose accents for either a boy or a girl that can quickly be added in later.
First up, the girl’s nursery option. For a girl, my client wanted the space to be light and bright with pops of blush pink. We opted to go with the light blue curtains either way, since the floral wallpaper we chose does have little touches of blue in it, as does the floral artwork over the glider. We went with a large blush pink rug with a medallion pattern and added some blush pillows and decor items as well to round out the design.
Next, the boy’s nursery option. For this one, we chose a slate blue wall instead of wallpaper, with some animal artwork above the crib. We switched the pink medallion rug for a similar blue option, and added in some blue pillows and decor.
I love that there are so many shades of blue in this nursery so it’s not just one-note. Slate blue is a particular favorite of mine since it reads very sophisticated, but it’s not too dark. And as you can see, the gender neutral options all still work! The white, gold and acrylic act as the foundation of the room for either option.
Which do you think it’s going to be? Which design do you like better?
