Bold yet feminine modern nursery

Design Inspiration

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.

Decorating Style

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.

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.

Advice

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.

    Great nursery!!!  I love the girlie pink but clean lines.  And I also love the idea of twin sleeper which serves so many purposes.  Great job!

    Do you happen to recall where you got the pink bins that are in what appear to be the Expedit bookcases from Ikea?  I would love to get some for my kids rooms because they are the perfect size.

    I love, love, love this room and we are going to do something very similar for my daughter’s new room, she is 2 and loves the pictures!! Wondering if there is a paint color that would be close to the orange accentss? We want to use a stencil and make the “You are my Sunshine” print, which couldn’t be more perfect because we sing that song every night to her! So looking for an orange paint that would be as close as possible. Also I found the elepphant print but where are the girafffes from? They are perfect!
