I am a mom of 3 boys. We have lots of trucks, lots of blue, and lots of ninja swords. We are woefully lacking in feminine accoutrements. When a client called and asked me to design a nursery for her baby daughter, due in a few months, I jumped at the chance to dream in pink and purple.
This room had been a guest room previously, and while it worked for that purpose, it needed a dose of style to be right for a baby girl. The family’s goal was that this room will grow with their daughter. It should be cozy and safe for her as a baby, but some of the furniture should grow with her as she gets bigger. Her big brother’s outgrown crib was dressed up with some modern but feminine bedding and works perfectly in the space.
Airplants on the walls add evne more life to the space, as does a Moroccan-inspired stencil in white on the wall behind the crib.
We added a daybed for baby’s fussy nights and visiting grandmas, and a glider and footstool provide a happy place to read stories and feed. The whimsical mirrors reflect even more light in this bright room
There are lots of fun pops of color – mostly yellows – against the lilac walls. The cut glass chandelier, tulle canopy, and paper ombre capiz-style mobile over the crib take the room from modern to girly. It’s a super sweet, bright, and happy room and I hope she’ll love it for years to come.
