In the Nursery with Megan Sullivan

Today we’re touring a beautiful and feminine nursery that you are going to fall in love with. Mama Megan Sullivan runs her blog The Mom Health Life and also works as a real estate agent in Greenwich, CT. On her blog and instagram account Megan shares lots of tips on how to live a healthier and more balanced life even while doing the demanding work of parenthood. She knows a thing or two about being busy—with three boys already under foot, Megan and her husband welcomed baby girl Scout this past year. We are loving this airy, feminine nursery designed for little Scout with help from our friends at YouthfulNest. Thank you, Megan, for letting us peek inside your home!

Where did you pull inspiration for your nursery design?
After having three boys, I could not have been more excited to find out we were having a GIRL! I have always dreamed of creating a beautiful and feminine nursery. Last year, I was lucky enough to do a commercial for Stokke, and I knew I wanted the Sleepi Crib—a round crib is so fun! I had already fallen in love with the pink Frida wallpaper, so I worked with YouthfulNest to design the nursery around the wallpaper.

What part of the design process did you enjoy the most?
I loved doing it virtually—I felt very in control of the process. I have always used interior designers and loved the process—the face-to-face interactions, feeling the fabrics—but with Covid to consider, I decided to use a virtual e-design service and loved it. It felt so good to start with a clean slate.

What is your favorite part or detail in your nursery?
Besides the wallpaper, there is not one design element that I love the most. What I love is how well the small space is used and how each piece was hand selected. From the rocking chair that fits perfectly and could not be more comfortable to the fun design of a round crib, I think there are lots of great elements.

What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project?
Have fun with the process! Like most design projects, expect some hiccups along the way. We experienced damaged furniture, last-minute replacements and, of course, had a global pandemic to deal with.
