Trixie’s Heirloom Nursery

We were so pleased that Elizabeth Brantely, former TV and film production designer and all around dynamo mom, shared her daughter Trixie’s nursery with us. The nursery has a vintage elegance which makes sense considering its inspiration came from a place rich in history: family heirlooms. Many of the elements in the nursery are items from Elizabeth’s great-grandparents. Elizabeth and her husband Steve had a tall order when they set out to remodel the room designated to be the nursery in their 1916 bungalow. After the initial floor work and painting (a color called “Pinkish”) was complete, Elizabeth’s vision was a room centered around three important pieces: a painted chest of drawers, a set of vintage cabbage rose curtains and a rescued iron chandelier. These pieces had sentimental meaning to Brantley and it was important for her to be able to reuse things she loved rather than purchase everything new.

Modern Glam Nursery

This glamorous nursery was inspired by the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The homeowner saw a fabric draped ceiling there and wanted to create a similar look in their lavender nursery. A dazzling crystal chandelier hangs down and gives the room such glamour! The custom changing table was designed with a fold-down changing tray, pop-up storage and a pull-out diaper genie for extreme efficiency. The front panels are even upholstered and tufted with rhinestone buttons to truly add sophistication and beauty. Design by Little Crown Interiors.
