Real Rooms: Creative Colorblocks

This week our “Project of the Week” featured room may be small on space but is big on sophistication and creativity. Cool Hoboken couple Jennifer and Calvin were able to turn a tiny 9×12 room into a little gem of a nursery for their baby boy Aven. They were inspired to design the nursery around the crib bedding they choose, Spa by Glenna Jean. Jennifer says she “loved the combination of colors, patterns, and textures” and that it was “a little more modern and sophisticated than your typical crib bedding.”  We couldn’t agree with you more Jennifer!

The modern pattern and combination of lime green, chocolate brown and robin’s egg blue set the tone for the big blocks of color they painted on one accent wall. They used Ralph Lauren paint color Kauai Jungle and Benjamin Moore’s Sweet Olive and Wayward Wind for the blocks of color. It totally makes sense that this duo was able to come up with such a cool nursery for their son because aside from being quite the design team they also have their own modern baby products website, Modern Munchkin. The site offers “cool clothes for your lil’ munchkin” as well as great modern bedding and gifts. We can’t forget the nod to all-time heart breaker and renegade rebel James Dean with the neon-lit poster. We are sure with cool parents and great digs to start off life in, Aven will be a legend in his own right!
