Design Reveal: Simply Tranquil

Sometimes simple is better.  Mom Angela, created a room to grow with her son. So keeping it simple in the early stages allows her to do just that. We also think it’s pretty clever that Angela took cues from Dylan’s astrological sign for color inspiration. Now doesn’t that give you something to consider?

Child’s name: Dylan
Age: 8 weeks
Location: Napa, California

What was your inspiration for the room?
I knew my son was going to be born in the month of March which makes him a Pisces and I wanted a very calming color since Pisces is a water sign and I also wanted something with a modern twist that he could grow with….

What best describes your decorating style?
Clean, whimsical, modern.

Share with us choice of paint colors, furniture, art, diy tips, etc. Please include links.

What is your favorite item(s) in the room?

The Chalkboard…because I can use it for Dylan as he grows older with new messages/activities.

Is there anything else you would like to share?
I also have a glider that is not pictured as it hadn’t arrived by the time the photos were taken!

What a beautiful room! I was wondering where you found the bassinet the teddy bear is sitting in - it's lovely. and does the wall paint have a pearlized or metalic finish - it's hard to tell with the camera flash. Thanks for sharing!!
