Design Reveal: Max’s Modern Blues

Being 8 months pregnant and running after a wild 2 year old is no excuse for the delay. Here is a peek at Max’s nursery in our New York City pied-a-terre and how we made him comfy and happy in his home away from home.

What was your inspiration for the room?
We wanted Max to have a bedroom and bathroom that are decorated appropriately for a 2 year old yet modern and stylish.  The Espadrille fabric for the rocker and the Flor carpet tiles set the tone that we wanted: cool and fun.

What best describes your decorating style?
We like playful prints, colors, and a clean look.

Share with us choice of paint colors, furniture, art, DIY tips, etc.

What is your favorite item(s) in the room?
Oh, there is so much that we like. I really love the custom fabric that we used on the rocking chair. It’s just so fun and unique. I also like the Dwell Studio bedding that we used on the crib and twin bed. We had custom designed wall decals to match the animals from the bedding and cool aqua color scheme – that was a fun touch too.
