For Anna’s nursery, I was inspired by a mint and gold mermaid print I saw on Rifle Paper Company’s website and a bold, teal-colored rug we already owned. We had painted the walls of this small room a cream color with a hint of yellow before we knew the baby’s gender, so once she was born, I wanted to bring in more mint, gold, a few splashes or coral, and grays and whites for furniture and neutral pieces. The room is not large, so for seating I loved finding an Eames-inspired chair with a slim footprint. I wanted the room to be fun and not too baby-ish, so opted for a few Rifle Paper prints and and a gold dot wall for artwork. Since there was not room for a bookshelf, I used a mint colored book caddy under a window and a couple of wall shelfs. To make up for the lack of closet space, we used IKEA dressers with lots of storage and a wall shelf with a clothing rack to hang and show off her “statement” pieces. The room came together slowly, but makes me so happy whenever I’m in it with Anna.
