Down in the Jungle

Baby Bennetts gorgeous Jungle themed nursery was inspired by the amazing tropical wall paper hiding different animals and boasting fresh greens and orange colouring.
Starting with the wallpaper, we were able to choose natural centre pendant, white base furniture and a soft jute rug to take from the darkness off the floor.
Staying neutral but fun draws people in but not so much it isn’t overwhelming for bub. Soft curtains and books offering a soft personal touch.

Beach Boho Nursery

This room was inspired by our love for the beach and boho design. I enjoy creating design styles that reflect the people who live in a home and this room does exactly that. My wife and I always grew up going to the beach and we find the sights and sounds so relaxing and calming that we had to make it a part of our nursery. I mixed a variety of vintage furniture with more modern pieces in our 1920’s home to create an eclectic feeling. I then layered softer textures and more natural and woven materials to bring out that boho vibe. The room we are using as our nursery is on the smaller side, so it was important for us to maximize storage. When creating your nurseries be sure to add a little of what is special to you. We can’t wait for our little one to arrive and use this beach boho nursery!

Boho Black and White Nursery

We wanted a gender neutral vibe for our new baby boy arriving in early April! We love boho but wanted a modern feel which is why we introduced the mid century feel with the furniture. Instead of having a closet, we took off the closet doors and put the dresser in the closet to make the room feel more spacious. The rattan baskets and accents helped create more storage opportunities throughout the nursery!

Sunny Joy

Ive always loved piecing together room designs with found items that don’t necessarily match perfectly! (This also helps stay on budget! 😉) I knew I wanted the room to feel warm, bright, cozy, and fresh while incorporating a mid century modern vibe that she could continue to grow into!
At the time I designed my daughter’s nursery, there were several Word Markets closing and you bet I took advantage of their liquidation sales! I found a pendant light that quickly became the center of my vision for the room as well as the perfect comfy and neutral swivel chair! The Anthropologie curtains were another favorite find!
I purchased the crib online and found the dresser on marketplace which, with a little elbow grease, a new top which I converted to a diaper bin, and some fresh hardware, became one of my favorite functional pieces in the room!
I found a few images from Pinterest including one image from a Society6 artist which inspired my mural.
And I designed a banner on which I hand painted her name with a pampas grass wreath for a personal touch.

Donut Shop Valentines and other LOVELY ideas

My girls and I LOVE a celebration! Valentines Day or Galentines Day is up there with our favorites! Each year since my eldest has been in school, she’s wanted to share her Donut Shop Valentines with her classmates. They are a super sweet spin on a regular valentine! Plus, enjoy some inspiration for my Love Baskets, some favorite Valentine books, and Galentines party ideas!

Black & White Nursery with Colourful Accents

When my client first reached out to me, she was looking to bring a sense of style to her son’s nearly empty nursery. The room was spacious with high ceilings and she already had a number of great staple furniture pieces, like a walnut dresser, grey armchair, George Nelson inspired bubble light fixture and a white crib. However, the room was in dire need of a cohesive design to pull everything together.
I honed in on a mid-century modern direction and fell in love with this black dotted line wallpaper to ground the space. I wanted the design to feel edgy with high contrast elements, yet still soft and playful enough for a toddler to enjoy. So, alongside all of the monochromatic pieces, we mixed in some really special accessories in varying shades of blues and yellows — from rope baskets and foldable crates, to felt pennants, soft toys and dolls, these pieces all work together so beautifully to bring richness to the space.
For additional depth and texture, we integrated a jute rug, a hand-woven wool ottoman, a decorative lion head made of water hyacinth and beautiful striped linen bedding. The fluted side table plays on the linear pattern of the wallpaper, while the wide bookcase serves as the perfect spot for books and speciality toy collections. We even added a few acrylic book ledges above the armchair to create a purposeful reading nook for bedtime stories.
From bare to bold, this room is now bright, effortless and oh so cool!
