ABC and as Easy as 123…

Description

Leave it to two talented art school grads and owners of graphic design studio, Form Code to develop an artistic, modern and soothing nursery for their baby boy. Impressive how they make adding a few ABC’s to the wall look as easy as 123…

Design Inspiration

Our inspiration for the room was the bedding for one- it’s Dwell Alphabet bedding. We thought it would be a great beginning for the room, we’re both art graduates and back in our day (lol) we had a hand lettering class.  My husband’s best class, mine not so much- so it was kind of a good connection for us to bring that memory back to our son’s room.

Decorating Style

modern and contemporary design, and fun

Project Details

We used BEHR paint for the room, the colors for the wall are Cumberland Fog, Little Dipper and Silver Strand.  The mural was created on the computer and then projected on the wall- from there we hand painted all of the letters….fun, fun!  Ha!  The monkey on the wall was “Magnus” from egg press- we thought he was so cute, so we replicated him as a painting.

The crib and dresser are Babi Italia Scandi style.  I loved the white and espresso color and it went well with the bedding colors.  The bookcase was purchased from West Elm- love their stuff and it’s now loaded with a multitude of knick-knacks. Some of our favorite items in the room would be the Domo doll and the Ugly doll- hopefully they will become his favorite stuffed animals :0)  We wanted a more “furniture”-like rocker for the room so we bought the Wendy Bellissimo rocker in chocolate- nice middle of the road rocker with some style.  We wanted a more modern room, so we were hoping these chosen pieces brought that feeling together.

Hi there - love your nursery. Thanks for sharing - I am trying to recreate this for my nursery as well. I'm a graphic designer and am hoping I can do that letter/number wall! Would you mind sharing what font you used for that? Thanks!

I love, love, love this nursery design. We replicated for my sons room. We are in the process of transitioning it into a "big boy" room and are selling the Dwell Studios bedding. It's in great shape and I know I searched everywhere to find it so if anyone is looking to purchase, let me know!
