California Dreamin’ – Soothing Gender Neutral Nursery


The trend for youthful spaces to mirror the design style of a homeowner’s main living spaces – which just so happens to play out nicely in my Chicago client’s nursery.

"I have a California vibe in my home and I really wanted to bring that through to the nursery.” – Jeannine Benoit Adams, founder of Ready Pretty

I’m thrilled to share this no fuss, California sun and sand lifestyle inspired nursery. Our client, a real busy working mom, took advantage of YouthfulNest’s time-saving virtual design services to transform her guest room into a serene baby room. To accomplish her vision we curated furnishings and décor in lots of white, neutrals and a few muted colors. Completing the look are pieces in natural wood finishes. Not only is this a sea glass gem, it also includes various pieces that promote superior functionality, convenience and/or safety.

We want moms and other caregivers to feel as comfortable and confident in their baby rooms as they would in any other room in their home. We believe this room exemplifies that goal.
