We recently realized we never shared the details of this cute little girl's nursery that was completed a few years ago. The family has since moved and baby Sophia is... a baby no more but we loved the feel of the space and are always excited to share when we do something relatively neutral yet compelling.
Because I'm a space planning nerd, I always like to start with the floorplan:
Our goals for this space included elements that were sweet and feminine. But it was also important that it be a serene place for parents and guests. With a wall full of windows, there were only so many places that we could place the crib so we centered it in the room. On the opposite wall, we added a custom daybed with a trundle that will rise to the same height as the mattress for two people to sleep. It was placed in the room for those sleepless nights, but also for guests. And of course we added a super comfortable swivel rocking chair.
The Cole and Son's wallpaper is perfect in this space. We covered all the walls in stars and then added the birch trees as a complementary wallpaper in the changing table nook. This small change in wallpaper just gave the room a little more interest. Additional gold accents are scattered throughout like the vintage mirror, sconces, accent pillows, and a precious decal on the closet mirror. Note: The vintage mirror belonged to my client's grandmother and was a sweet addition to the room.
A plush white faux fur rug was placed under the crib for a more textured and dramatic look, plus it is super cozy and soft.
This bookshelf is sometimes hidden behind the entry door, but a built-in was a perfect place for books and other storage in an otherwise dead space. To make the bookshelf a little more interesting, we continued the wallpaper behind the shelves.
This sweet nursery was so fun to design because it was simple and feminine, but glamorous.
