It was so fun putting together this nursery for our first born. We wanted a feminine nursery with woodland accents. All items were hand selected from a variety of stores to keep the room unique and personal. Our idea was for the nursery to be transitional for Emerson as she grows. Furnishings and accents were chosen with a less juvenile feel with the hope that she will enjoy them for years to come.
Liesl absolutely LOVES animals, so we decided that a Wild African Safari would be the perfect theme for her 5th birthday. Her only request was “live animals”, and we found a great non-profit to give the party goers a fun and and education exotic animal show and Liesl was their special assistant.
I really wanted to create a bright and airy space for my son that both he and I would enjoy. I knew that I wanted to incorporate animals as a theme and use the colors gray, navy and mint. It was important to keep this project budget friendly, so many of the projects were DIYed.
I wanted something with a vintage feel and plenty of heirloom pieces. I tried to avoid anything too theme-like but couldn’t resist the charm of little woodland creatures.
The couette cover represented a Family of giraffes, so we decided on painting the sky and the trees to create an open sky, savannah effect. We add some decals of savannah animals, a wooden giraffe and a few other items to bring everything together. We added the circular red mat to just pop some madness in there and get away from the safe coordinating colours and as usual for some reason the madness always works. We then added some red siblings in the form of the baskets etc.

This is a nursery for my first baby girl. Of course once we found out we were having a girl I immediately started thinking about her nursery. I wanted something girly but not over the top. We decided to go with neutral colors and pops of baby pink. We also incorporated animal prints.
I had a lot of ideas for the nursery and tried to incorporate them all. I knew I didn’t want a quote on quote “baby’s room” and wanted it to be a little more grown up. So I gathered safari animals and paired them with a chevron print to create Rory’s room.
I started off Sara’s playroom after she turned 1. As she got her footings strong on the ground she got very mobile and active. I wanted to create a safe place for her to explore and have plenty of space to roam around..She loves it there. It keeps her mind and tiny hands occupied for a good couple of hours..New toys keep adding up but both of us can’t part with her old ones, so we are glad we have plenty of space to store all her treasures..It’s a space for her and i don’t mind being there myself for countless hours..Keeping it fun and functional was my priority.
We love animals and skandi design and wanted a bright fun nursery for our wee girl that combined everything we love.
When I started to shop for baby bedding, I was struck by how theme-y the sets are. I would find a crib sheet and quilt that I really liked, but was hit over the head with the theme again & again. Curtains, diaper stackers and bumpers, Oh My! All of which, I had no intention of using. So I decided to avoid an overt theme. and instead try to create a space that Baby Q could grow into and make his own. I mean what if I created a baseball nursery and he grew up to hate sports? I know this is maybe silly and maybe even unlikely, but I tried to create a functional and transitional space for my little one with pretty neutral colors and a loose animal theme. Additionally, at my baby shower guests were asked to bring a children’s book instead of a card. The little guy has quite the library, so we wanted a place to store and display his books. The glider now doubles as a space for feeding & reading with all the books easily accessible without even getting up out of the chair. Reading is important to my husband and I so we really want to pass that on.
When we found out that we were having a boy, I envisioned a bright, bold, and colorful nursery where he would feel most comfortable, and love playing, reading, rocking, and falling asleep in his own special place.
I began designing my son’s nursery around January 2010 and completed it just in time for him to arrive in March. It was my first experience completely designing a room and I became addicted always trying to add even more to make the room just that much more special. His room was really small, so I did my best to maximize space.
We put more time and thought into this nursery than I thought possible! After a two and a half year journey ending in fertility treatments, I think I was so overjoyed to finally be pregnant that I felt like every detail had to be perfect! And it is!! :) With the artistic talents of my husband’s mom and grandma, we were even lucky enough to get a custom mural and some excellent design advice on the way, too!
A bright, fun and meaningful space for our little girl.
This is a small, simple, safari inspired, and budget friendly nursery that I made for my baby boy. I did everything myself. The nursery is almost done, it needs only a nice rug, and the ruffles under the crib. But I confess, at this point, the weight of the belly makes me easily tired. I made this with my baby boy in mind, so I tried to think about everything that a little boy would enjoy. I wanted to explore numbers, letters, colors, and animals as educational items for the nursery. I hope you enjoy.
Olivia loves the zoo so I teamed up with my friend and designer Erica Praschan (of Erica Praschan Interior Design) to create a beautiful party for her second birthday.
A double 2nd birthday party for my daughter Nora and niece Andi.
My baby shower was thrown in late September. My husband’s godmother, Nana, and I sat down and exchanged ideas. She then ran with it! She worked really hard and I will always be grateful for the amazing job. She went with a vintage and fall inspired theme. It was very laid back and full of personal touches throughout. I want to thank everyone involved for such a beautiful shower as well as my cousin, Tori, for the gorgeous pics.
I wanted to do something bright and fun for my son and his fellow 2 year old friends and a Circus fit the bill.
