Bold yet feminine modern nursery
My clients hired me to design a feminine yet modern and untraditional nursery that would stand apart from the typical pink nurseries that are common in this area. My clients loved my nursery design so much that they used it to inspire the design of a custom made birth announcement for their daughter.
My designs are contemporary and modern, inviting and comfortable. They are never cold or sterile. I use clean lines, texture, and color to create harmonious, balanced, and inviting spaces. I am careful and deliberate about my use of color in a space. Whether it’s bold or minimal, color can enhance one’s experience and set the overall look and feel of a room. My color selections are driven by the mood that my clients want to create.
Fuchsia paint on top half of walls: Benjamin Moore Gypsy Pink 2077-20 Seating: Crate & Barrel C&B Twin Sleeper in custom fabric (White Doss) http://www.crateandbarrel.com/Family.aspx?c=936&f=24289 Dresser: West Elm Hudson 6 drawer http://www.westelm.com/products/f513/?pkey=x%7C4%7C1%7C%7C6%7Chudson%20dresser%7C%7C0&cm_src=SCH Crib: Walmart Baby Mod - Oliva Crib http://www.walmart.com/ip/Baby-Mod-Olivia-3-in-1-Crib-Amber-and-White/8810319
Custom bedding and accessories made with amazing Mod 1960's circle fabric. West Elm dresser - great lines. Also the crib - great price and it's very solid.
When you use such a strong color on the walls, be sure to balance it with lots of neutrals and at least one other contrasting bold color. Because I used a lot of fuchsia in this room, I balanced it with lots of white (white paint on bottom half of walls and white shelving/storage, crib, dresser, and seating). The fuchsia needed another bold contrasting color so I used orange quite a bit in the artwork and accessories.
