A Project For
A nursery for our girl/boy twins.
I was inspired by the contemporary cribs and graphic boldness of the patterns in the rug and the bedding.
I love modern and contemporary designs, especially in a nursery. I am not a fan of anything too "baby-esque" or "frou frou". I love everything Jonathan Adler, especially bold patterns and great color combinations. We really wanted the nursery to be neutral but still cool and hip.
The giant photographs were taken by Shelley Armenio. We love the scale and the bold white frames. We started with the cribs which are Oeuf purchased at Genius Jones in Miami. The rug is chevron from West Elm. The glider is from Pottery Barn kids. The xoxo pillow is from Pottery Barn Teen. The dresser is from Bellini, and we changed out the knobs for aqua ones from anthropologie. The graphics on the wall of the room and bathroom were done by me and framed with Ikea and Michaels frames. The whale kleenex holder is from Etsy, as are the giant scrabble letters. The pair mirror above the changing table is Jonathan Adler and represents our "pair" of babies. The 2nd white chair is from Crate and Barrel. The postcard art going down the wall is from a store in Italy and matted with papers and frames from Ikea. The sheep mobile is from genius jones. The mobiles above the crib are from Pottery Barn baby. The bookshelf is Ikea and filled with piggybanks, books and photos. The aqua zig zag box was snagged from Missioni for Target. The print outside their room is from Amazon, and the maternity photo was taken by Shelley Armenio. Shelley also took the photos that we used on their announcement which we framed as you enter the room. The bedding is Dwell studio.
The giant photos are definitely my favorite and make such a bold statement. They make us smile every time we are in the room. We are so thrilled with the scale. We also love the xoxo pillow. I was really superstitious and didn't set up the room with anything until they were born. I did order this pillow online while I was pregnant though because I knew it would be perfect no matter the genders.
Pick pieces that you love and find a way to incorporate them. I'm always on the lookout for bold graphics and patterns to add to the room for a little unexpected pop.
