Real Rooms: ABC And As Easy As 123…

Leave it to two talented art school grads and owners of graphic design studio, Form Code to develop an artistic, modern and soothing nursery for their baby boy. Impressive how they make adding a few ABC’s to the wall look as easy as 123…

“Our inspiration for the room was the bedding for one- it’s Dwell Alphabet bedding.  We thought it would be a great beginning for the room, we’re both art graduates and back in our day (lol) we had a hand lettering class.  My husband’s best class, mine not so much- so it was kind of a good connection for us to bring that memory back to our son’s room. We used BEHR paint for the room, the colors for the wall are Cumberland Fog, Little Dipper and Silver Strand.  The mural was created on the computer and then projected on the wall- from there we hand painted all of the letters….fun, fun!  Ha!  The monkey on the wall was “Magnus” from egg press– we thought he was so cute, so we replicated him as a painting.”

“The crib and dresser are Babi Italia Scandi style.  I loved the white and espresso color and it went well with the bedding colors.  The bookcase was purchased from West Elm– love their stuff and it’s now loaded with a multitude of knick-knacks. Some of our favorite items in the room would be the Domo doll and the Ugly doll– hopefully they will become his favorite stuffed animals :0)  We wanted a more “furniture”-like rocker for the room so we bought the Wendy Bellissimo rocker in chocolate– nice middle of the road rocker with some style.  We wanted a more modern room, so we were hoping these chosen pieces brought that feeling together.”

Born June 2, we hear baby T. Michael is enjoying the room as much as an 8 week old can. It’s loaded with fun toys, books and clean, contemporary design. The stand out wall graphic just blows us away! It’s great to see a mural both children and adults can appreciate for years to come. Very cool Worth family and thank you for sharing!

    This is fabulous…especially where they projected the letters and then painted the letters?!? Holy talented…I love the monkey painting…do you know if they’re selling these prints?

    I saw this nursery over at HGTV’s Rate my Space and was blown away. It’s simply my dream nursery, which is funny since we actually have the same bedding and color scheme in our son’s nursery. I love our room, but it certainly pales in comparison.

    I would also LOVE the monkey painting. Not only would it match our room perfectly, but my son is currently in love with monkeys and it would be adorable.

    Hi! Thanks for the great remarks. And thanks for the kind words on the monkey painting….we actually painted the painting, but the monkey was from egg press. Sooo….
    As for the rug, we bought it at, not sure if they still have it, but you can check! :)

    This is the cutest nursery I have ever seen. I wouldn’t mind walking in there daily, if I had a child. I just love the colors, everything about this room screams modern.

    My Sister loved the wall of this nursery so much that she is trying to create a similar effect in her house in Aruba. Was just wondering how she could get her hands on the mural, or how she would be able to get the alphabet on the wall.
    Can you tell us maybe where you got the letters from?

    Thank you!

    I’m trying to recreate the mural in our son’s room. We just painted the base color with cumberland fog in eggshell. However, I’m wondering what kind of finish did you use for the other 2 colors, little dipper and silver strand? From your picture, the letter “M” in little dipper looks to be more glossy. Please help!! Thank you.

    Your nursery is beautiful! I wanted to ask where you purchased the rug? I’ve been looking for a rug in that design and I haven’t been able to find anything.

    This isn’t my nursery but i found out the rug was from crate and barrell 2, but I’m pretty sure you can’t get it anymore – i found a similar one at west elm as well

    Ive a small problem (no pun intended) but it is large amounts of the free of charge male enhancement exercise clips i watch are very difficult for myself todo due to the fact ive a smaller organ, four basically and i usuallyget hardons very fast which makes it difficult to do the more variable workoutsthat requirement a partially flaccid pennis. will any one recommend anything at all please. Some other portion of my question is when any person has done these kind of exercises, will i expect tenderness and pain just like a usual exercise?
