My clients had a clear vision for their baby’s nursery from the moment we sat down at our first design meeting. We started with the color palette, balancing the expansion of coral and turquoise from the rest of the house into the nursery to create a cohesive flow, while also giving the room a personality of its own. We settled on a boho chic feel which was achieved through classic textures paired with birds and butterflies, a fun way to take the baby from her first steps and into toddlerhood. The classic grey and white palette of the furniture will allow the pieces to grow with the room and the blush pink walls were just enough to make it girly without taking over. Adding a touch of whimsy with a cozy nook at the window was a perfect way to bring in some adventurous colors while topping off the space.
When my clients contacted me to help them with their first baby’s nursery, I had a pretty good idea of they look they were going to want. We recently completed the interiors throughout their new home and wanted the nursery to be cohesive with the soft grey color palette already in place.
As soon as we knew the baby was going to be boy, we began to pull all of the design elements on the wish list. A grey, navy and white color palette would be the foundation to bring in the rustic yet tailored elements for a little boy. The wood plank wallpaper was the first element that we installed on the crib accent wall. A classic white crib, dresser and resin antler began to pull the space together and keep the overall feel soft and allowing for the layered color with books, art and accessories. A sweet little bird pattern for pillows, custom cotton bolls canvas art (Dad’s family runs a farming company in Arkansas) and accessories on the shelf brought in a a bit of metallic and soft green to complete the look.
We like to call it “Baby’s First Bachelor Pad” and sweet little John Henry is already sleeping in his crib at night! The room feels cozy, yet pulled together and is going to be the perfect little nursery for him to grow into.
