We wanted Nicolas' nursery to be whimsical and tranquil, but classic and contemporary at the same time. The room was painted camel tan so that allowed us to use a simple, yet chic and sophisticated color palette - light blue, brown, tan and hints of white.

Decorating Style

Classic and contemporary with vintage elements.

Favorite Items

The crib - it is the main focus of the room; with its classic lines, deep brown color and large size, it makes a statement.


Choose the paint color first, then decide on your palette. Simplicity is always better. Choose a special item in your room that will set the mood (ie crib, rug, wall, etc) and work around it.
