Located in the heart of New York City, the room was previously used as a movie theater man cave with dark walls, and leather sofas. Transformed to a nursery for twin girls, the space is focused around modern clean lines with a youthful girly touch. Being that the setting of the space is very urban with skyscrapers seen in the windows, we wanted to give the girls a nature themed environment in contradiction with the urban oasis seen outside. With owls being all the rave, we had a muralist paint a streamline tree with flying birds and a pair of owls to represent each child. The room was divided in half for function. On one side of the room, there are two lacquer and ebony cribs by David Netto as well as a conveniently located changing station. Above the cribs are three brightly colored floating butterflies from the Land of Nod, and a mural to tie theme (Nature in the City) of the space together. On the other side of the room, we created a custom built in shelving unit with a horizontally laying murphy bed from Manhattan Cabinetry. When the bed is put away, exposed is a turquoise blue chalkboard for the girl's art studio. When the nanny is there, the bed pulls out from the wall, and a daybed with dimmer lighting gives access as a bed as well as a sofa for movie nights.
Our inspiration was conceived by bringing nature into the urban oasis of the city.
Our decorating style would be be described as streamline modern furniture, mixed with a light fresh color scheme. The style and function of the furniture will be able to continue with the girls as they grow up.
Make sure the function of the room works with your lifestyle. Anything can be custom created to look beautiful, and hold up to every need.
My favorite items were the white lacquer cribs with ebony sides, and the slide out shelf below. They turn into a toddler bed, and will surely hold up to any rough housing.
