- A Project For: Faisal
- Age: 5 weeks
- Location: Bloomfield, NJ
Faisal's modern safari nursery revolved around the amazon stone chevron wall. The other items in the nursery don't compete with the bold pattern, but compliment it in a clean, simple way. I had to absolutely love each item in order for it to find a home in Faisal's nursery!
Blending the vintage rocking chair and modern chevron wall together led to my inspiration for the room. I reupholstered the rocking chair to match the overall color scheme of the room and made sure that each additional piece in the room complemented both the wall and the rocking chair. The room itself is not large, so I picked items that made an impact, but were also functional.
I tend to lean towards a more modern and contemporary decorating style. I like to mix pieces that spark conversation, but overall it all has a cohesive feel. Adding texture to a room is also very important.

The picture of my belly that is framed and hung over Faisal's crib. I plan on taking the same picture with my future pregnancies and giving the framed image to the child when they get older.
Pick one bold pattern for the wall and go from there. Everything will come together after the pattern is up. You'll know what looks right when you see it!
