Corporate Creative Director by day and Crafty Do-It-Yourselfer by night. SF gal Natalie Hansen has a knack for interior design. Just check out her blog http://www.steamedartichokestudio.blogspot.com/. Project Nursery would like to give Natalie kudos for recently being featured on one of our very favorite blogs, Design*Sponge which showcases her fabulous $12 DIY lamp revamp.
Our Project of the Week is Natalie’s cool, calm baby nursery, otherwise know as the “Lombard Street Project“. With a budget of $500, Natalie created a contemporary gender neutral baby nursery for her clients. Natalie painted the entire room a sea foam green (with low VOC) herself. She was inspired by IKEA for their amazing storage solutions and minimalistic style but also incorporated a personal touch with some crafty wall art.
“I painted small cherry blossom style branches in two corners and one right above the door. I also hand drew a hippo and a giraffe on some of my favorite paper patterns from Paper Source and glued these figures to the wall. (They come off easily and won’t leave a mark on the wall). “
Our favorite feature is the stuffed animal art. A 49 cent stuffed animal and $6 shadow box frame – IKEA of course! A brilliant, inexpensive idea for nurseries everywhere…Very cool Natalie!
