Sugar and spice and all things nice…that’s what little girls—and their romantic nurseries—are made of. Our clients wanted a romantic and serene space to welcome their first child into the world; they also wanted to balance the soft and subtle with little stylized moments and accents. Because we were dealing with a loft space with low ceilings, our main challenge was to create the desired feel without over “pinking” the space.
We painted two walls a subtle pink, which created a backdrop for the key pieces—the crib and the Sloane changer. Above the Millbrook iron crib, we placed a quote that the mom-to-be loved. The romantic furniture is balanced with more contemporary interpretations of this style in the white lacquer brocade shelves and storage.
Fashion artwork and romantic Parisian styling elements—like vintage candle holders and bird cages—complete the space while combining various eras of romantic pieces to create a small space as special as the little girl it welcomed.
Here we created a calm zone for feeding that feels soothing and soft for those nights spent rocking a new baby. We took advantage of a niche with a lower wall to create a serene off-white enclave for Nurserywork’s Empire rocker and the inspirational pillows with hopes for the little one written on it.
We found one-of-a-kind details to add a special touch to this dreamy nest.
Yes, aircon, even if white and pink are very common for girls’ nurseries, you can always give it a fresh touch and find ways so the room doesn’t look common and ordinary.
Julie and Alessia, GREAT work on this one. I think this is one of the best rooms I’ve seen on Project Nursery. Care to share where you got the mirrors?
I would always tell myself over and over that pink and white nurseries are so cliche and the colors are an overused combination. But I see nurseries like these and I totally realize I am wrong.
