A Hunter’s Dream Nursery


Hunter's name was the inspiration for this design; it had to be special, playful and magical. This is a modern take on a forest theme. The color scheme (blue, green and blue-green) is great for bedrooms because of the calming effects they produce. With kids, it’s essential to be able to quickly toss and hide all the toys that eventually get left around the room. An over-sized storage ottoman is perfect for not only toys, but also nice for propping your feet up during story time. It’s perfect to sit on during sleep training and midnight feedings. The dresser which doubles as a changing table was updated with zebra and number pulls. Working with a strict budget we paid attention to the little things like changing the hardware on an inexpensive dresser to give it a custom feel without the price tag. Next to the glider is an animal leg table for easily placing a bottle. Flanking the crib are two ladder bookshelves with large bottom drawers for additional storage. Toys from the parent’s childhood are styled alongside other architectural and colorful toys and a few playful grown-up accessories. The vibrant blue/green chandelier mimics the rug and brings in a touch of elegance. Little details like the blue/green glass closet knobs help to bring in more of the color palette, adding to the overall look. Handy branch hooks hang above the closet door and the curious giraffe mounted to the wall is gazing toward the crib. Babies love busy patterns so we chose the oak tree wallpaper. The little white bird mobile blends in naturally and he will be entertained by both for hours.

The focal point in the room is the custom neon sign that says "Hunter." It's written in his grandmother's handwriting and will be a keepsake for him, but for now, it's his night light.
