Boho Meets Mid Century Baby Boy Nursery


When my friend and fellow Miami Mom Blogger and creative, Geri Del Vento, asked me to collaborate with her on her baby boy's nursery, the answer was a definitive yes!  I knew Geri would be willing to take some design risks that some clients aren't willing to take - wallpaper, eclectic lighting and untraditional decorative accents - which makes projects so. much. fun.  And I was right!

This space was inspired by some of the boho and mid century designs I've seen lately but also, I was driven by making various textures, furniture and elements work together within a relatively small nursery.  And Geri is super creative and had a vision and inspiration as well (ahem, how about that neon sign #amiright?!).  From black metals to industrial lighting and dresser, blending mid century with current design was in full effect here.

My advice and tips are similar to any project - there are no design rules!  Decorating spaces and space planning are not black and white projects.  There should be true creativity and pushing status quo to make a space feel differentiated and personal.  We started with a somewhat traditional Restoration Hardware changing table/dresser and I was adamant that I not "match" the rest of the space.  Instead, I wanted a design that represented baby Leo and his parents, regardless of what the design rules say!  So, HAVE FUN AND TAKE RISKS!  And don't be afraid of wallpaper and neon signs ;)
