Reading nook

Arts & crafts hub & artwork display

Music nook

Video game hub

Toy hub

Climbing wall & monkey bars

Workout nook for the grownups

Open & closed storage

My client shared with me her vision of being THE PLACE where all her kids’ friends want to hang out.
But, like so many of us, they moved into their home during the pandemic. Life happened and they never got around to creating a plan for the basement. It turned into a parking lot for toys over time. The space did not spark joy.
Her kids are artistic, enjoy having friends over, and love to climb, but there was nowhere to do any of that. Mom and dad loved getting their workouts in but dreaded going down to the basement to use their exercise bike.
My client was also racking her brain trying to figure out what to do with the awkward oversized built-in bench, which offered no extra functionality and took up so much of the precious floor space.

I dreamed up a space where her kids and friends will love for YEARS to come. A place to move their bodies, to nourish their minds, to create, and to connect.
I immediately saw the opportunity to use my client’s existing 4×4 shelves to create the DREAMIEST READING NOOK, while adding intentional OPEN AND CLOSED STORAGE.
I added a CLIMBING WALL with a rock wall and monkey bars, a TOY HUB, and a VIDEO GAME HUB. I even created an ARTS & CRAFTS station with accessible paper and supplies, artwork drying rack and a table that was ready for creativity and messes (acrylic table protector, washable rug).
As for mom and dad, I made sure there was plenty of new storage, comfy grownup seating and even a WORKOUT NOOK to boot!

The Twins Toddler Room

I choose this project because my family had just recently moved from Florida to Georgia.  I wanted to make my twin two year old girls feel comfortable in their new home and especially their new bedroom.  I wanted to give the girls room an update from their nursery back in Florida to a big girl room in our new home.
My inspiration for the room was this beautiful wildflower wallpaper. I wanted something fresh, bright and feminine for the girls room.  I wanted a design that was tranquil for them, making their transition from the only bedroom they had known to their new room.
My advice would be to take your time and plan out all aspects of your toddlers room.  You want the bedroom to be something that your kids enjoy as well as being a practical space. Lastly have fun with it.  It’s a time to collaborate with your children and come up with a beautiful design that makes both you and children happy.

Mid-Century Twin Nursery

After finding out we were pregnant (surprise), we were surprised again to find out it was twins!  When we found out we were having twin boys (after already having three girls), we were thrilled to be able to design a boy nursery for the first time.  I love neutral but couldn’t miss this opportunity to incorporate some blues and more masculine wood tones and metals.  My husband loves mid-century modern, so it was a no-brainer for us to use that style as inspiration for the boys.

Twin Girls Modern Boho Neutral Sanctuary

We chose a modern, boho, femininely whimsical theme for our twin girls, Capri & Celine’s nursery. We wanted to incorporate modern elements such as the neon name signs and acrylic cribs with the feminine touches of the Anthropologie primrose mirror and the beaded chandelier while keeping true to a natural, bohemian aesthetic with the bouclé glider, area rug & beige/ivory/cream neutral color palette.

Twin Nursery Ideas: A Sweet Boho Style Room for Mila and Liam

We are so excited so reveal this charming and laid back nursery put together for newborn twins Mila & Liam Mills!

Their momma, Natasha of the Momma Mills Blog, designed a warm and welcoming room for her babies to come home to.  Lots of twin nursery ideas to check out!

he room has a boho vibe with greenery, natural decor and wood accents.  This chic and cozy space creates a happy place for twins!

The natural wood cribs are from Storkcraft, a family-owned Canadian furniture company.  Natasha decided on two Beckett 3-in-1 Convertible Cribs in “Natural”. This crib has won awards for its clean, adaptable design.  The light wood brings a playful and modern feel to the nursery.

Natasha worked with New Arrivals’ owner Tori Swaim and chose personalized crib rail covers and crib sheets to dress the cribs.  The white crib rail covers are versatile and keep the babies from chewing on the crib.  The green and dark pink monograms were added to coordinate with the Sage Green & Rose Bouquet Crib Sheets.  All of our rail covers, blankets and pillows can be personalized with a monogram or name.  (See all of our monogramming options here).  The green crib sheet for Liam coordinates perfectly with the pink and green floral crib sheet for Mila.

Mila and Liam snuggling on our Rose Bouquet Crib Sheet.  Large scale rose floral print adds a subtle feminine touch to the nursery and coordinates perfectly with the sage green crib sheet for Liam.  Twins Liam and Mila cuddle together in their Pink Polka Dot  and Sage Green knit swaddles.  New Arrivals’ Sage Green Crib Sheet and White Crib Rail Cover with Monogram are shown above.  Warm sage green mixes well with earthy tones and is muted and calming.

The sleek modern Hudson Changer Dresser includes three drawers, changing tray and storage cabinet to help conserve space in the room.  Utilizing the dresser as a changing station is an easy way to save space and eliminates the need for a separate changing table.

Natasha had the closet doors removed and added a white Ikea storage unit for organizing toys, shoes and more.  Seagrass cube baskets add to the natural feel of the room and add more space for tucking the abundance of baby things out of sight.

A comfy, cozy Capri Swivel Glider from Lennox Furniture is perfect for rocking, feedings and snuggles.

A large nursery window brings in plenty of sunlight that adds to the bright feel of the room.  Greenery is always a charming decor item to add to a nursery.  The fig leaf plant adds color, texture and helps to complete the space.

All nurseries need a cozy corner that is conducive rocking, feeding and reading.  Include a rocker/glider, books, lots of light and sweet decor to create a comfortable and homey spot.

 Floating shelves from Home Depot and IKEA hold keepsakes and favorite books.

A big thank you to Natasha for sharing her baby’s room with us!  Liam and Mila’s room is a stunning space designed for twins!

Clean + Neutral Nursery for Twin Girls

I was so excited to create a loving space for my twin girls as soon as I found out I was pregnant with twins. I opted for a neutral tone so the room has a bright and airy feel when you enter. We picked out the paint color first then chose the decal for the room. We found cribs that are white with wooden legs which I feel tied the whole lookentogether. We wanted a pop of color but still be neutral so we chose cinnamon color and have this pop through some items throughout the nursery.u favorite pieces are the two hanging frames. I wanted something personalized that isn’t necessarily the twins’ names. Since their first names came from plants, I decided to get the willow and ivy leaves custom made into the wall hanging for a personal touch. My most favorite oartnis the shelf area which was inspired by featured nurseries in projectnursery’s instagram page. It took me about 5 months to complete the nursery. There were a lot of items that were out of stock (due to COVID I assumed) that I didn’t have a choice but to just be patient. And it paid off because I absolutely think the nursery is the best room in our house.

Shark Attack Shared Boys Room

The perfect room for two boys looking to get creative and have fun escaping sharks and using their imaginations. I created this room with a nautical surf vibe for two sweet boys. I wanted to make it exciting but also be a place that they can grow into for many years to come. The existing furniture was complimented with a custom wall mural, a grow with me modern desk, shark bedding and a gallery wall. I absolutely love this one and so do my sweet clients!
