A Project For

Addison

Location

California

Description

The owners of this nursery were looking for a space which was feminine, classical, romantic, and comfortable. We created a timeless space where a family will love reading and playing with their little girl. The color palette is soft with layers of light pink, taupe, cream and gold.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for the project came from a fabric and bedding set called Angel Toile.  The clients loved the soft pink with peach undertones paired with taupe and cream.  The fabric set a romantic and timeless tone for the room for all items going forward.

Decorating Style

The decorating style of these clients is romantic and comfortable.  They have even chosen to not have a television in their entire home so they spend a lot of time talking, reading and just relaxing together when then come home from work. Their entire home has a very calming feel and we tried to carry this into the nursery.

Project Details

Crib & Dresser: Caroline Collection from Young America

Glider: Cottage Glider & Ottoman from Little Castle Inc. 

Toy Chest: Target

Drapes: Linen from Restoration Hardware Baby

Bunny & Pillow: Custom Design by Bebe Chic

Antique Mini Mirrors: Purchased from Former Furniture

Rug: Dash & Albert

Bookcase: Was actually her husband's old bookcase from college that we had re-painted to save some money.

Favorite Items

My favorite items in the room are the mirrors, chandelier and rug.  All of the items are unique and unexpected in a nursery.  I like to incorporate adult furniture and accessory pieces into a child's room because children eventually grow up and it is nice to be able to easily transition pieces into their next room or into another room in the house.

I also love the whitewashed "A" mural above the crib.  When designing a room in California I'm always concerned about earthquakes so I try to not hang anything heavy above the crib that could accidentally fall on the baby or be pulled down.  So a mural like this was a nice alternative to decorate the space plus it is high enough to fit over a headboard once Addison grows out of her crib.

Advice

Don't be afraid to go big with a rug and to layer colors.  Things do not always need to be matchy/matchy.  Also think about doing something special in the closet or dresser like painting it a different color or lining it with wallpaper.
