I have been meaning to share these photos for over a year now! Luckily good design is timeless and this beauty is still going strong and looks as lovely as ever! Designing nurseries is one of my favorite things to do! I find that it’s a space where people are more open to using color and whimsy, which is everything I love in all design. When I design nurseries I like to make it a space that can grow with the baby and doesn’t need to be switched up after a couple of years. I don’t go trendy at all. It’s timeless all the way! With this nursery I took what some might call, old fashioned floral chintz and paired with a preppy gingham. Blended together the space looks chic and feminine and I threw in a couple edgy pieces to mix it up.
Isn’t it pretty! It belongs to my sweetest little friend, Clio! Clio’s mom is one of my best friends who completely trusts me with her home. I had a vision and she totally let me go with it!
This floral chintz fabric was my jumping up point! It’s always nice to have an inspiration piece that you can pull colors from for the rest of the space.
While the space is Clio’s 90 percent of the time when they have a visitor it is also used as a guest room. So, we needed to make space for a daybed. I love daybeds in nurseries. It’s a cozy perch to read a book with your baby, can be used as a guest room space if needed and can used as a big girl bed when the time comes!
Opposite the daybed is the crib. People are always nervous about putting anything to heavy in the artwork realm above a crib. A good solution here is a wall decal. I don’t love wall decal’s, but when they are done right it can be amazing. It’s important to pay attention to the font. A chic font equals a chic decal. I like the idea of mixing it with something else so, it all makes more of an impact. In this case we went with handmade floral flowers! They are super light so, no harm will come to your little one if they happen to fall in the crib.
I had a little fun with the slipcover and had it done in a leopard! It’s not your traditional leopard color, but it’s still animal print. I added peach fabric for the piping and the inside of the pleating. Isn’t that so much nicer than having it all done in the same fabric.
The changing table/dresser area got a pretty mirror that reminded me of a flower which worked perfectly in this space.
The hardware got switched out for these gold bow pulls.
We took advantage of the door area and made it’s own little moment with artwork, vintage hooks, and an area for books.

Little details throughout the space:
Is it not the prettiest nursery! Not to toot my own horn, but I think it’s so classic yet whimsical and I love how there are baby elements in it, but there are many more elements that will grow with the little lady that calls this room her own.
