    I love your nursery!  I know you got the fabric for the chair from Calico corners, but where is the actual chair from?  Thanks!!

  • trenna

    Thanks so much! The rocker is by Mitchell Gold… I actually purchased it eleven years ago to rock my FIRST baby in.  Pottery Barn Kids has one similar.

  • Dandelion

    Wow, your nursery’s like a breath of fresh air, what with all these cool and refreshing colors you used. It’s very clear that you mixed old and new elements, yet everything has really turned out beautiful.

  • C&P Mama

    This is my favorite room on Project Nursery!  I love the unique colors.  Beautiful!

    You list stool and storage bench from IKEA.  Do you mean the bench in the closet?  Do you remember what it is called? I cant find it on the IKEA website.  Thanks!

    Try the Besta shelving unit?  I have had mine for several years so this may be the newer version. It doesn’t look exactly the same though. I actually think mine was from the LACK line. I turned it on it’s side and added legs. Hopefully you have an Ikea near you that you can visit. There is so much MORE available in the store than online.  The closest one to me is in Chicago but it’s always worth the trip! And I am sorry to say the Benjamin stool has been discontinued, however if you google it you could probably find one online for sale perhaps on ebay or elsewhere. Good luck! http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40134045

    Ok, C&P , the bench WAS the from the LACK line and I can’t find it on the website. However, as i mentioned it COULD still be in the store. That Besta unit actually looks too frail to convert to a bench. There IS an actual bench in that line though that looks much sturdier.  :)

    So beautiful and unique! Great job!

    Thanks so much, Sherri! :)

  • ebaby decor

    As I looked at the photos and read your content, I knew the room had to belong to a designer. Great work, and you did a pretty good job with the baby’s looks, too. Darlihg! I like what you’ve done with the shades of green. You’ve inspired me to design a nursery for my blog, ebabynurserydecoration.com using a few grown up features like the drapes. BTW, the chandelier is splendiferous.  Now to hunt for a blog that I know must be  out there.

  • Carson Cataliotti

    Love Love your nursery! Especially the turquoise crib! My middle name is Emory and if our baby would have been a girl that is what we would have named her. Also, love the fabric on the chair. I used the same fabric in brown for window treatments in our baby’s nursery!!!! Love your style!

  • mjesse

    LOVE this!!!!!

     

  • trenna travis design studio

    Thanks so much, Carson! Well, I just LOVE your beautiful middle name! :) You’re nursery is darling and of course I adore the curtains and the pillow fabric is awesome.  Congratulations on your little one, soon to arrive.  He will have a beautiful room to come home to. :) 

  • trenna travis design studio

    Glad you like! Thanks, mjesse!

    Glad you like! Thanks, mjesse!

  • Saradest

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Love the fresh colors. It is gorgeous!

  • kr1chards0n

    Do you remember the pattern name of the fabric you used for the curtains or where you bought it…it’s just what I’ve been looking for, but haven’t had much success?

    Also, did you paint that little table in the corner…and do you remember the paint name? 

    This nursery is absolutely adorable!  I love it!

  • kr1chards0n

    I just saw where you named the curtain fabric…oops!  Guess I need to slow down :)

  • Recreate

    Yeah, I agree, the colors are very cool and fresh. I have my eyes on your Ikea light. It certainly adds a different texture to everything.

  • meggo73

    I absolutely adore your room! It turned out fabulous! What color did you use for the walls? Is it a stark white, or does it have a tint of another color in it? 

  • Ccw4246

    this is simply stunning!  Do you have any suggestions for making your room gender neutral?  Green has always been my favorite color and I just love this turqoise.  Thoughts?

  • trenna travis design studio

    Hi there, Kr1….

    Actually, I had NOT named the curtain fabric… It’s “Cross Section” in Green by Waverly. The table color is Apple 5 by Valspar in a satin base, available at Home Depot. Thanks so much for your questions and compliments!

  • trenna travis design studio

    Hey Meggo73,

    These walls are not a stark white, they are on the softer side. My favorite white is “Cloud White” by Benjamin Moore.  :)

  • Ccw4246

    One more thing, I love the crib bedding which seems to be a cream colored sweater knit.  Where did you find this!  Thanks!

  • rnwasserman

    I adore this nursery. I’m a little late to the game, but hopefully you’re still answering questions. What is the paint color that you used on the crib? We are using the crib my father-in-law made for my husband and I would love to use this turquoise to update it. 

  • adhall77

    I LOVE this crib.  I know you said it was vintage but do you know where I could get one like it?  Thank you very much!!

  • phipps631

    The nursery is fabulous! Fresh, modern and durable. I love your shelve and clothing rod display. It is a wonderful solution for a room without a closet. Can you tell me about how you came to the design.

  • nataleewarren

    I have to ask about your crib. Did you have much work done to it & if so how did you go about finding someone to work on it? How do you feel about the slats being so far apart & do you know what brand it is? I recently bought a vintage turquise crib (diff shade) for $10 at a thrift store. However, it needs a paint job and the drop down side needs some work. I was going to have it made stationary so it doesn’t move at all. I take it your drop down side is working well? THanks for any input you can give!

  • trenna travis design studio

    Hi Ccw4246

    The I purchased her sweater knit blanket at Pottery Barn… SOOOO soft! To answer the gender neutral question, I think you could easily make this room go boy by trading out the pillow and adding a more geometric print or solid on the chair.  :)

  • trenna travis design studio

    There were a couple of questions in regard to Emory’s crib.  This particular one was in perfect working condition and had never been previously painted. It did come with a mattress which i promptly replaced. I was not worried about the wider slats, it has not seemed to be an issue as of yet.  Sanding it and painting it was simple. I have had a harder time finding a plastic protective piece to put along the top of the rail like you see on many new cribs and I would highly recommend that for when your baby starts teething and wants to use the crib rail to do so! :)  This could be an issue if your crib was previously painted so make sure it has any old paint thoroughly sanded. I would recommend if for those looking for one to try ebay, Craigslist and your look thrift or antique shops. 

  • Lauren

    Hi!  Beautiful nursery!  Do you recall which frames you used from Ikea?  Thanks!

  • babyj

    Wow! What a beautiful nursery!! Yours is my favorite on here!! You did a wonderful job!! I am in the process of getting my nursery together and I LOVE what you did for extra clothing storage! What a great idea to use a curtain rod. Do you remember where you got the shelving and rod from? I’ve been looking at curtain rods and can’t seem to find any that hang from the shelf. Did you buy a seperate piece to do that or did it come with the curtain rod? I definitley need to do something like this in our room for the extra storage! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all these questions!

  • bluebirdkisses

    Beautiful!

  • wenbow

    5 stars all the way, and I just want to say your design style is so unique and beautiful.  I have been showing this nursery to my whole family.  Great pictures!  I have been inspired by your room.

  • kathrynlg

    Love it!  What is the name of the paint you used on the crib?  Thanks!

  • baby p

    My question is the same as a few others :) I think we are dying to know the paint color of the crib. Thank you for sharing your nursery-what an inspiration!!

  • trenna travis design studio

    For all who have inquired about the paint color, so sorry but I honestly do not know.  I just dug through my basement and found the original paint can.  It says it is a Valspar paint but the actual paint color marked on top is COVERED in paint. Next trip to the hardware store I will see if I can match the color and report back. :)

    Hi!  Any tips on taking pics of room?  I have a great camera but keep getting shadows, bad light, etc.  Your nursery is GORGEOUS!

  • babybella

    where are the pictures for this nursery? everyone loves it but there are no pictures on my end. just the descriptive text.

  • Diana

    Found your nursery on Pinterest. I’m obsessed with it. So beautiful that I will definitely reference it when (and if) I ever have a baby. The link on Pinterest led me to this site and you are from St. Louis! I lived there from January of 2006 until just a week ago when I moved from St. Louis. :) Gorgeous work.

  • babybella

    diana where do you see the pictures for this nursery? i just see text here!

  • Diana

    Yeah, it is weird that it does not show up on this page but I found it through Pinterest. Here is the link to my Pinterest “pin” of this image. Hopefully that works for you!

  • Jackie

    Love that color pallette. What a great room. Loads of inspiration here.

  • katie

    I also LOVE this nursery! :) Also from St. Louis area. Would you mind sharing the color name of the turquoise on the crib? I think it’s a beautiful color….looking for a vibrant color to paint my dresser in the craft room.

  • Trisha

    LOVE the design and how you mixed old and new! Just wondering if you would share the name of the paint? I have been to several paint stores trying to match and there are many shades of turquoise! Thank you!

  • Trisha

    Oops- just figured out how to read older comments where you answered the paint question. Once again- LOVE IT!

  • McKenzie

    I love this nursery! Does anyone know where to get this light fixture??

  • Leslie

    Where did you get the chandelier lighting for this nursery? It’s beautiful.

  • amirisbatista

    Wow. Just wow. Beautiful.

  • Julie

    Hi! I LOVE this nursery! So much inspiration and the color palette is beautiful.

    Where did you get your rocker? I love the style of it. I know you had a slip cover made but where is the original one from?

    Thanks!

  • http://vermeerhouse.etsy.com VermeerHouse

    So fresh and crisp! You can order custom fabric letter blocks from Etsy.

  • Bonnie

    Can I ask where the white frames are from? I need four just like those for my boys (twins) room.

    Thanks!

  • http://travandashplustwomore.blogspot.com Ashley

    I am wondering where you found the rug at?! I have been looking for one identical to this one, but have had no such luck! This room is absolutely stunning!

  • Brooke

    McKenzie,

    McKenzie,

    The light fixture is from Ikea. It’s the maskros light. I just got it for my nursery.

  • Jennie

    Love this nursery! Great job! I am decorating my little 10-month-olds nursery now, and am using yours for inspiration. Do you by chance remember what the brand name of the fabric that you used for the curtains? Or the color? I have been trying to find green in that shade and am having no luck!

    Thank you!

  • susan sessions

    Hi. My daughter Jenny is expecting twins and loves your nursery. We located the fabric for the curtains, but are having difficulty finding the paint for the baby beds. Is there any way you can tell us the name of the paint. We know it is valspar and have attempted to find the color based on the picture.

    We appreciate your help,
    Susan

  • ali

    We looked at this light fixture, but the smaller size (that would make sense in our room) had a very low-wattage bulb. Which size did you choose, and do you find that it provides enough light?
    Brooke,

  • brooke

    ali,

    We got the bigger size, seems to provide enough light. I also have a lamp in there that I use too.

  • Stephanie

    Can I ask who you used to make the slipcover for the chair?

  • http://www.projectunexpected.com Rockie

    I am absolutely in love with this nursery and that crib!

  • stephanie

    Just wondering if you know the color names/numbers/brands you used on the crib and the table… Thanks!

  • SBJ

    Was wondering if you could tell me where you got your blinds from? I love them in this nursery?

  • SBJ

    Was wondering if you could tell me where you got your blinds from? I love them in your nursery under the darling curtains. Are the rods and fabric clips from IKEA?

  • Britni

    Please tell me where you got the fabric for your curtains! I love them!

  • http://www.eastwitching.etsy.com Alison Fennell

    This drew me in immediately because of the light-filled and soft yet high-key color palette.
    I especially love the bold floral print of the armchair and yes – that turquoise crib is the show stealer isn’t it?!
    The IKEA(I think?) lightfitting is stunning and adds a really inspirational accent.
    Well done!

  • dianneleigh9

    I LOVE your nursery! It is my favorite on Project Nursery. It was the inspiration for my baby’s nursery. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I wish that I had this nursery for my children.Way to go!!! It’s beautiful.

  • Lindsey

    Julie,

    It’s the Deserva Rocker from Restoration Hardware. It has been discontinued and is very hard to find replacement covers for.

  • Kim

    I was wondering who made the slipcover for your rocking chair? I have the same rocker and would love to update it!

  • cecilia

    HI I loved the owl lamp, where did you get it?

  • cecilia

    thank I already read your post!!

  • Mimi

    Hi, this is an amazing room. Could you please tell me what paint color you used on the walls? I am looking for a white(ish) color that would work well with cool undertones like blue and green! Thanks!

  • Kristen

    Could you share with me which throw at Pottery Barn it is I see two, but was unsure one is more pricey than another so wanted to check and see if you could direct me :) Love this nursery :)

  • CKrueger

    Hi Trenna! I am obsessed with this nursery. I have looked everywhere for the fabric on the nursery chair and it has been discontinued. Any suggestions for a replacement fabric that is fun like that? Totally in love.

  • KJS

    Where did you get the area rug?

    I’m not sure if you will get this as it has been several years since this was posted! First, I want to say I LOVE this nursery! I am just wondering if you had any opinions on a wall color besides white that could be used. I’m just afraid in our house it may not “go” as well as in your nursery. Do you think something like a light peach color could work? Maybe grey? Thanks so much!
