A few months ago, the lovely Jessi Malay reached out to me for help designing the nursery for her daughter, Alessandra. They had just purchased a brand new home and had a totally blank canvas to work with. The first time I saw the space, I was so excited to see the high ceilings and bright natural light (probably two of the most important things to a designer!).
We sat down and talked a lot about what she wanted to see in the space. She wasn’t entirely sure, but knew she wanted lots of white, a crib with acrylic, and some type of statement wallpaper. I showed her an image of a girl’s bedroom I designed last year with some pretty spectacular floral wallpaper and that was that! She fell in love with the wallpaper, and we were able to pull the whole design together after that.
Jessi loved the idea of an acrylic crib. We chose the Babyletto Harlow crib because it’s modern, it’s acrylic and it’s white, so pretty much the perfect option for her. Jessi’s nursery isn’t huge, so we couldn’t fit a wide dresser in here along with a glider. Instead, we chose a medium-sized dresser from Newport Cottages and customized it with a white satin finish and gold hardware.
Almost everything else in the room I chose from Joss & Main. They have such a huge selection and happened to have a ton of items in the color scheme we were going for. I even found great little succulent plants and accessories there!
Jessi really wanted to have a little snuggle spot in the nursery too, so we created a little spot with lots of fun pillows and a soft faux sheepskin rug to play on.
Here’s the design board I put together for her so she could really visualize the space before we started ordering everything.

Baby Alessandra had such a fun time playing around her new nursery! It was so fun to watch her explore and discover all the new things in her room.
