A Project For



3 months


Milford, MA


After having three boys I was BEYOND excited to design a nursery for my little girl, but I still didn't want to go over the top frou frou. The rest of our house is a nice mix of modern and classic so I wanted to make sure the room would flow while at the same time providing Annabel (and me!) with one place that was undeniably feminine. What started out as a purely modern project morphed slightly into a mix between mid-century modern and 60's Boudoir style, and I absolutely love the way it turned out.

Design Inspiration

The genesis of this room was the amazing Tres Tintas Hexagono wallpaper which I first spotted in a Novogratz-designed gym in the lilac colorway a few years back. I had been waiting and waiting for the right opportunity to use that paper so when I found out we were expecting a girl I went to order it right away. It turned out that the lilac had been discontinued since I first saw it and was sold out at every single retailer worldwide which sent me back to the drawing board. I started looking for something similar in purple but kept coming back to the large-scale geometric pattern of the Tres Tintas so when I realized they also carried it in silver, I was sold and the room just took off from there.

Decorating Style

Modern (doesn't everybody say that now?) with a mix of classic and bohemian finds. I LOVE mixing patterns and colors together to give each room it's own distinct personality with lots and lots of color.

Favorite Items

It's so hard to say just one favorite thing because there are so many things in there I love but if I had to narrow it down, I'd say the wallpaper. The whole room was built around that striking geometric print and I love the statement it makes when you walk through Annie's door.


Don't be afraid to mix and match lots of patterns and colors. A big, bold geometric print can be balanced really well by smaller, delicate florals and the end result is both striking and calming - perfect for a little baby and easy to transition as she gets older! I like to stick with a palette of two or three main colors and then pepper in some bright accents, the end result being a room my little girl will hopefully love to grow up in!

    Wow! Amazing. I love the Novogratz style and this wallpaper is fabulous. Love how you mixed and matched it with other eclectic items. Love all the colors but the room still has a sophisticated feel. Love it!

    Thank you so much, Pam!! I really appreciate the feedback and agree, the wallpaper really IS fabulous. I wish I could use it in every room here but that may get a little weird. :)

    Thank you so much!!! I’m a huge fan of Trendy Peas custom canvases, I have this photo one in Annie’s room and the canvas birth announcement in my youngest son’s nursery as well. The birth announcement canvases have been my go-to baby gift for new mom friends for the last few years! :)
