We are touring the nursery of Caitlin Lindquist, of Dash of Darling, today. This beautiful neutral nursery was inspired by her daughter little Luna herself and features a custom wall mural with her namesake from our friends at Anewall. You can catch Caitlin on her own site sharing personal style picks, beauty favorites and her IVF journey to welcome her adorable rainbow baby, Luna, into this world. Caitlin, we are so happy for you and your family—thank you for sharing your space with us!
Luna’s nursery was designed with her name in mind. We love her to the moon and back, and we wanted that to be reflected in the space she lays her head down at night to dream. Her name also feels very bohemian and whimsical, so I chose to emulate that sense of wonder with a more neutral palette and dreamy decor.
What part of the design process did you enjoy the most?
I absolutely loved working with Anewall to create an out-of-this-world custom moon wallpaper, the Luna Mural, for our daughter. They were so easy to work with and hit the nail on the head so-to-speak. The subtle, hand-painted moon and stars combo feels perfectly heavenly and free-spirited and serves as a reminder that she is our sun, our moon and all our stars. It was so easy to install and was the perfect way to bring her “to the moon and back” nursery theme together.
What is your favorite part or detail in your nursery?
Her nursery is filled with so many thoughtful pieces and accents—from the moon and star wall hooks to her moon-shaped toy pram—it’s all the little details that will remind her as she grows just how very loved she is.
What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project?
Decide on your overall theme before making the big purchases, like the crib and changing table, to ensure they align with your chosen aesthetics. Although you don’t need to limit yourself to a single concept, honing in on a specific design will allow you to narrow your focus and create a more cohesive look. For example, if you are going for more modern ease, you can look for elegant lines and bring pops of personality out with playful accents.
