I chose this project because I love the spin from the traditional baby boy nursery. The “Baby Bookworm Nursery” was inspired by my my client’s love for learning and exploring through books, which is a trait they hope pass to their children. I am always thrilled when the design has sentimental ties. Nurseries and kids spaces are so much fun because I can really get creative with colors and themes. Not only do you want the space to be aesthetically pleasing, but it must be functional. Lighting and storage are BBI’s “Nursery nonnegotiables.” You must have adequate lighting to be able to thoroughly inspect the skin especially with diaper changes and hygiene. Storage is a must because we know babies have ton of “stuff.”
I chose this project because a ton of our kiddos are schooling virtually and so much of how they perform depends on environment. I love that this playroom is dual functioning with a desk area for today’s virtual learning and a bean-bag lounge area for breaks. This project is inspired by my client’s love for basketball so it’s a locker room theme. When designing a playroom my advice would be storage, storage, and more storage!! The lockers were a Facebook marketplace fine with a DIY repaint. They tie in the locker room theme, but also give great storage!
