Modern Gray and Orange Nursery


We had to bring light and vibrant colors to a nursery located in a loft apartment in New York City. The challenge was low natural light.

Design Inspiration

When we started working on this nursery our starting points were: the iconic Hicks Hexagon wall paper (already installed in the room) and a vintage Dr Seuss print. We drew on the colors in the wallpaper - shades of grey and a dark navy - as the base palette for the room. Then we brought contrasts and bright pops of orange to both brighten the room  as well as provide vibrant visual accents.

Decorating Style

Modern and elegant.

Project Details

We love how reframing the Dr Seuss picture in a high gloss white frame made the picture pop - plus we added a weaving inspirational text of this much loved author around the poster to compose this vignette.

We are glad we found the vintage airplane mobile and globe we hung over the changer to support dad's wish for travel.

Last but not least, one of our favourite details is the wall decal family tree.
