Annabelle's Nursery- A bright, airy, fun space in a space challenged room!
I was inspired by one of the original Project Nursery posts "Modern Baby Blue". I LOVED the pattern on the wall and knew I needed to replicate it for my baby!
Traditional, with a modern twist. I love bright, airy spaces.
Annabelle's nursery is a very small (10x10) room directly off our master bedroom and while I knew I had to make a statement with the wall, I didn't want everything to feel overwhelming. So I settled on one bold wall, while keeping everything else neutral- ivories, whites, with hints of pinks and blues in the linens and wall decor.
In this small space, it was tempting to pick furniture and try to make it work without considering the scale. Instead, I kept hunting for items that were the perfect scale and fit compactly, but functionally into the room.
The wall was actually easier than it looks- we followed the directions from 'Modern Baby Blue'- first all walls were painted ivory, then we used Frog Tape to tape the square pattern- after the first angle was placed we measured every 12", marking and taping as we went along. You get in the groove after doing a few of them... luckily the room was almost a perfect square and we ended up with evenly sized squares on each end!

The wall! And, after that, the bookcase. Love the turned leg detail.
Don't be afraid to try a bold wall pattern! It's not as hard as it looks :) I loved every minute of designing this room and have loved every minute we've spent in it since- totally worth the work!
