A Project For







This nursery was designed in collaboration with my then pregnant client and my now close friend.  She wanted to do something girly but in the blue family.  I think we definitely achieved that.

Design Inspiration

We both fell in love with the wallpaper and wanted to make it the focal point of the room.  My client had also recently travelled to Africa (pre-pregnancy) and wanted a touch of a "safari" theme.  Hence the large giraffe and the zebra inspired window treatments.  We also framed and hung up some of her photography from the trip.

Decorating Style

I definitely lean towards all things modern.  However, my biggest influence is always the client's decorating style.
