We waited a bit after my daughters birth to conquer her nursery. I was very uninspired at the end of my pregnancy and she was rooming with us while I was nursing. This nursery is a collaboration of my design and my husbands fine craftsmanship. The time and hard work was worth it!
Watching her grow into an independent little lady inspired me to give her a special space she could call her own for years to come.
Modern, WHITE, with a POP of color
I have to say that the sleekness of Ikea's baby furniture was an easy choice and great fit for our nursery. These products include the crib, dressing table and closet. The closet was a huge deal for me. I wanted a custom design that I didn't think existed. Luckily, Ikea sells there closet systems in customizable portions. I was able to make a mini system for baby clothes from my own design...a perfect fit. We laid new floors, Pergo brand. We did the wallpaper ourselves with Graham & Brown rolls, they have a great online selection and offer coupons regularly. They are very affordable.
Hate to be vein, but I think my favorite aspect of Safi's room is the wall art I photographed for her and hung like I would for a gallery. I scheduled a shoot of ballerinas rehearsing just for the intention of having wall art for her nursery that was of her mommy's creation. I hope she can appreciate it in a few years.
RESEARCH! Take pieces of designs you find then PLAN your materials based on the styles you are choosing from. For this look, I think the wallpaper was key. Everything else, WHITE! Oh, and a little accent with curtains.
