In designing this Princess Nursery, we wanted to create a sophisticated take on a traditional nursery, a room that would be able to carry her from infancy through childhood. Instead of choosing a theme or going very pink, we selected timeless pieces that will evolve both functionally and aesthetically over time. For example, her parents will read to her on the rocker as a toddler but, as she gets older, it will become her chair to talk on the phone to girlfriends (and boyfriends). We love the classic pattern and color palate of the crib panels, which can be re-purposed as a duvet cover or pillows on her grown-up bed.
House of Ruby Interior Design was selected to create the ultimate nursery for a little princess. Pink was the obvious choice to serve as the backdrop for this fairy tale room.
House of Ruby Interior Design’s philosophy is one of relaxed sophistication. With an extensive knowledge of materials, craftsmanship and color, we create warm, layered interiors which have become the hallmark of our firm.
With each project, House of Ruby Interior Design develops a close relationship with the client and strives to celebrate their individuality, interests, and daily essentials for living and entertaining. We are dedicated to creating environments that are distinctive and highly livable.

A few design Gems that I live by:
- Use existing things when possible and add custom elements
- Select furniture pieces that can transition as your child grows
- Poach items from your parents (especially old furniture pieces from your childhood room or nursery)
- Try different furniture layouts, don’t feel as though you have to place furniture against the wall, place it on angle. It’s okay to place furniture in front of a window.
- Have fun thinking like a kid again!
