A Project For

Saige and Zac

Age

1 year old twins

Location

Trumbull, CT

Description

Whimsical, playful and happy are just a few of the words that describe this gender-neutral shared space nursery.  The fun aqua colored walls delicately complement the coordinating red and navy bedding and accents.  The crisp, clean, white furniture perfectly finishes this imaginative space.

Design Inspiration

What can be more inspiring then the sight of hot air balloons floating above your  adorable baby?  Years before I ever thought of becoming a mother, I had seen the balloons at a trade show.  I hoped that one day I would have the good fortune to be able to use this dream big, reach for the sky concept for the nursery of my own bundles of joy.

Decorating Style

I like creating children's rooms that make you feel happy, are whimsical, and are inspiring.

Favorite Items

The hanging hot air balloons are my favorite items, the babies love watching them spin and it brings smiles to their faces. I also love other items such as the vintage airplane wall decals, the artwork, and the hand and foot prints over the changing table.  The handmade blanket draped over the glider that my mother-in-law made is a nice touch bringing the colors together.

Advice

I purchased many items from Etsy (a great site for unique items that are well priced).  When designing a bedroom for multiples I like using coordinating bedding rather than matching bedding to give each child their own identity.  For more information please visit my website,  www.lisaferointeriors.com.

    This is the most tranquil room for babies. It had to be hard to create a gender neutral room. How refreshing to not see pink and powder blue. Great job.

    Thanks so much for the nice comments. I had so much fun designing this room.

    The rainbow colored balloon is the large size (22″H) for $79.99 and the red and blue balloons are the medium size (11.8″H) for $39.99.

    Sorry Jenny, not sure if this is the rug. I was looking for a shag rug, but all the rugs I found were $400-$500 which I did not want to spend. This one was approx $150 and it is so super soft. I shop Costco often (with twins I go through a lot of diapers and wipes!) and just happen to see it in the store.

    I love this room!! It’s beautiful. Where is the bedding from? So pretty!! My boy/girl 13 months old twins still don’t have a decorated room. You’re giving me inspiration.

    Thank you Susan! The bedding was custom designed with Carousel Designs. I am so happy the room inspired you. I actually offer virtual design and can send you examples. If interested email me at lisafero@gmail.com.

    Megan…the babies love watching the hot air balloons spin. It brings a smile to their faces. I agree, the costco rug is so soft!
