Emma’s Houndstooth Nursery


I started working on this room two months ago when we moved to a new place where Emma can get her own room. Till then, most of the stuff where in my head and in my pinterest page, and I just waited to execute them...

Design Inspiration

I love black and white and I'm obsessed with houndstooth. I knew from the start that it would take a roll in her room. But I also wanted the room to be colorful, girly and fun, so I added few extra colors and patterns. Once I discovered the houndstooth stencil, it was no brainer. This was my kick start. There are few rooms in Project Nursery that inspired me. The one that inspired me the most was London’s Big Girl Room and the houndstooth wall in Shared Boys' Room :-)

Houndstooth is my least favorite of the patterns, but your worked it. I love how the room turned out. And I also love that there are so many fun and quirky details and accents.
