Tribeca – Owl Nursery


Interior Designer - EMC2 Interiors in NYC / The mural in this modern owl nursery was painted for twins. It's neutral and airy. I chose to use the corner space because it's where your eye is drawn. The height of the ceiling added to the design. It was painted to fit exactly in this space. I loved the fabrics and colors the designer chose. She has wonderful and fresh ideas. On the opposite wall she had built ins with a foldaway bed that doubled as a chalkboard for the kids. The cribs she picked are from designer David Netto.

Favorite Items



Don't drink coffee before painting. You'll need a very steady hand:)

I love the entire nursery, but I was wondering what the greyish base wall color was? I have been thinking of doing a similar wall color and adore the one you chose.

Thank you so much. The other wall was a big window with a view of NYC.

Love that mural, it beats any decal any time.  I was wondering though if the opposite wall was left bare or did it have the same mural or something similar?
