Design inspiration can come from anywhere—what inspired your nursery/kid room design?
I knew I wanted to use green in her nursery—even though we knew we were having a girl, I couldn’t do another pink room. I was on Etsy one night and saw the wallpaper from the shop KidsColoray, and I knew I had to use it. From there, the rest of the nursery fell into place.

How did your personal style influence your design choices?
Much like my own personal style, my design aesthetic is never overly cluttered and typically tends to be cozy and comfortable with a polished edge.

While I love the idea of bright colors, I tend to keep the base color in the rooms I design neutral, so I can add pops of color here and there and change things up over time without having to recreate the whole room.

Now that the room is complete, what was your favorite part of the process? And what do you love the most about the finished design?
My favorite part of the design process, especially when designing a nursery, is imagining all the ways I will use the room and all the memories that will be created in the space.

Design wise, I love that the wallpaper provides an overall theme for the room without being too “matchy” to everything else. I made a point to find a few other pops of green and sprinkle them throughout the space to tie everything together.

What is that one thing that everyone mentions when they step into this space?
It has to be the wallpaper. The quality is awesome and it gives the room the pop of color it needs.

What is the one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when they’re starting their own nursery design projects?
My main piece of advice when designing a nursery is to keep the room comfortable. You will be spending a lot of time in the room as your baby grows, and you want it to be a place that offers a calm soothing environment.

Another piece of advice is to just have fun with the design and to bring a part of you into the room. Whether that be in the form of a photo or an old stuffed animal that used to be yours, you will love knowing your baby always has a piece of you close by.
