We are expecting our first child, a little girl and we wanted to create a happy, fun, welcoming environment for her.
Nursery for our little boy Henrik who’s due in April.
I started off Sara’s playroom after she turned 1. As she got her footings strong on the ground she got very mobile and active. I wanted to create a safe place for her to explore and have plenty of space to roam around..She loves it there. It keeps her mind and tiny hands occupied for a good couple of hours..New toys keep adding up but both of us can’t part with her old ones, so we are glad we have plenty of space to store all her treasures..It’s a space for her and i don’t mind being there myself for countless hours..Keeping it fun and functional was my priority.
The nursery is designed with a giraffe theme for our new baby, Madeline Esther.
This contemporary nursery with a grey-aqua-orange color scheme features a towering giraffe, grey-striped walls, and antique touches. For more product information, please visit wisemamablog.com or the feature on Apartment Therapy. Photography by Andy Wise.
This nursery was designed in collaboration with my then pregnant client and my now close friend. She wanted to do something girly but in the blue family. I think we definitely achieved that.
My son’s room.
Bowen’s new nursery!
We worked on a budget and DIY most of the elements, the room that we started with did not have lights besides a very small one right next to the entry door, so my husband and father-in-law worked on adding can lights, book shelves and closet. I was in charge of the smaller projects being my first ones the elephant lamp along with the “K” light. The most meaningful project has to be the bathroom door, I painted a section of North America and South America and added hearts to where Santiago, Chile and California, USA are so we can show our little baby Peanut where Mom and Dad are from =]
The very last project I worked on for the room was the cardboard name sign on top of the crib, since we didn’t know the sex of our Baby, I waited until after delivery, I had already set a side a big box that I was planning on using, but that same week I had planned to start with the sign my Cousin send us the tall giraffe, so I used that box instead, which allowed me to make the sign a lot bigger than my initial plan.
I wanted to create a happy nursery for my little man. I chose items that made me smile – the mobile, the expressions on the pull toys, stuffed animals and etsy prints.
I spent a lot of time thinking about how I wanted to do our little man’s nursery. I was trying to steer clear of a “theme”. Instead, I played around with colors, while keeping the base color a modern gray. I’m thrilled with the results!
Baby’s parents wanted the room to be happy and colorful, without being over the top. They chose the color scheme to bring warmth into the room. The nursery was a labor of love. The parents picked colors from Quiet Nursery’s paint line and painted the room from top to bottom themselves. They also lovingly painted the dresser and brought in family heirlooms and hand-me-downs to make the nursery personal.
I became totally stumped in my nursery design when i found out i was having my fourth boy! Typically a mom will design a mixture of boy and girl nurseries in their lifetime. Not me, I was thrown a monkey wrench and now needed to conjure up some fresh ideas without reusing old ones.
This chic and sophisticated nursery was created for Mac. His parents wanted to do a safari themed nursery for him, but keep it sophisticated so it could grow with him and flow with the rest of their house.
The Ralph Lauren Seagrass wallpaper and sage green walls really set the scene for my sophisticated safari nursery. I had lots of fun incorporating all the animals in different ways: A Rhino puzzle, life-sized baby giraffe, zebra rocking horse, elephant mobile, monkey jack-in-the-box, animal books and paintings of course. The green shaggy rug resembles the African plains and the white porcelin elephant hooks with the binoculars and vintage safari hat add detail to the theme. The linen chair, mercury glass lamp and Johnathan Adler Morocan pouf to be used as an ottoman were items I already had, but thought they went perfect in the room! I was super excited about my antiqued pine dresser, matching nightstand and whip-stiched burlap drum pendant that hangs from a thick rope… very “Indiana Jones-ish”. The custom bedding with blue and grey Chevron contrast a swirly masculine paisley with pops of aqua, gray and white. And no nursery these days is complete without some bunting. Pulled all the colors used in the room and had one custom made for the wall.
We tried our best to turn a plain white box of a bedroom into a cute, welcoming space for our son.
We wanted to create a beautiful nursery for our Baby Boy Will! Something that was soothing / calm, yet vibrant…sophisticated, but not overly mature. We used soft colors with bold accents (hello zebra rug!) to achieve this. Living in NYC, space is tight, so we had to be creative to fit all of the must haves in his room. Keeping the furniture light in color also helped the room to feel more light and airy.
Baby boy nursery inspired by a giraffe cowhide rug. We started off using neutral colors with pops of blue and ended up with a cozy safari nursery that is peaceful yet playful.
I am Tall – Giraffe Themed Nursery. We wanted to create a cheerful, happy environment. My husband added trim around the room and painted the top portion and ceiling baby blue. The bottom portion was painted beige. Accents and accessories focus on giraffes and the alphabet.
Light, Bright, and Fun!
