Modern Soft Boho Nursery

I designed this modern, soft boho nursery for my client expecting her 3rd child and first girl! She wanted a wall of wallpaper in a subtle design to bring in color to the room. So we found this beautiful pastel pink speckle removable wallpaper from Livette’s Wallpaper. This inspired the direction for the color palette. We went with all white for the crib and changing table/dresser for a modern feel. We layered in pattern with this soft printed crib sheet from Crate and Barrel and fun shaped metal and wood mobile. The wall decor is simple. Framed prints mixed with a cute peg board for organization. Overall the look and feel is cozy, simple but fun. My client loved the final reveal.

Soft and Sweet Nursery for Claire

My client and I  were inspired by a palette of soft greens, grey and off-white for this sweet and soft nursery. She wanted something different (more modern) than her last nursery while still fitting in with the decor for the rest of the house.  We tried to mix it up with some eclectic furniture while still keeping it traditional.  I love that we were able to source small shops in the accessories. It turned out just perfect for this Valentine’s baby.

Whimsical Eclectic Nursery

I really loved this nursery project because I designed this space for my cousin’s sweet baby girl. I was inspired by a palette of pinks and neutral patterns and textures. My cousin wanted an eclectic mix of boho & whimsy all while keeping the room design simple. She had an existing crib and rocker, so our first purchase was the wide dresser from Ikea which doubled as a changing table.  Next was the rich pink colored rug from World Market and the adorable poodle bedding from Land of Nod. To keep it simple, I hung a delicate feather mobile above the crib and left the wall behind the crib blank. We added the wall decor last, which was a combination of animals heads (Land of Nod) and shelves (Urban Outfitters). The end result was soft yet fun nursery that can grow and transition as baby grows.
