Description

As a designer and fine artist -  I believe that style is as important as function. The way cool thing here was this nursery design project was for my own baby, so it was very easy to determine what the client wanted, since the client was me! I wanted my baby boy's room to have lots of interesting patterns and bold saturated colors, which little ones are naturally drawn to. I choose an extra big comfortable rocker with extra soft fabrics as I knew there would be many nights I would likely fall asleep there. I looked high and low for the perfect vintage mid century modern dresser (turned changing table) and nightstand, forever pieces that can grow with him through many finishes and paint colors in the coming years. My favorite thing in the room is the art work! All personal and custom art I made just for him. I also found some vintage comic book posters, which added more color and were another nod to the mid-century era. The final touches were vintage toys that he could actually play with and doubled as rad decor. Overall, I did not want his space to be too serious. I think nurseries should always have just the right amount of whimsy, function and interest for a little one and not look like an adult space. Now every night when my now toddler, choose a book from his 'just the right height' bookshelf for storytime or rides his old-school 'neigh neigh', I'm proud that he enjoys his room as much as I enjoyed putting it together for him.
