Mary Alice’s Sophisticated Nursery


A sophisticated, classic and timeless nursery that will transition easily as Mary Alice grows older.

Design Inspiration

The room was inspired by Braemore's Emperor's Garden fabric, used for the curtains.  When I saw this fabric I fell in love and knew I wanted it to be the focal point of the room.

Mallory and Lee, the artist for the painting is Susan Skelley. She does beautiful abstract paintings for a fairly reasonable price. Emily, yes the chandelier is is Land of Nod's Stranded on a Beaded Chandelier.
