This is a sweet little nursery that I completed recently. My clients wanted a gender neutral nursery, as they weren't finding out the sex of the baby, and so I developed this neutral color scheme of taupe, cream and blue. The fabric patterns aren't gender specific either and feminine or masculine touches could easily be added later. You can view what the room looked like before above...a blank canvas. This is what it looks like now.
My client wanted to keep the design very simple and spartan. She is well aware that the room will be filling up with toys etc. and wanted to keep the design calming, clean lined and classic. We added crown moulding and painted the room a rich gray.
In this fabric detail you can see our color palette. I used all cotton fabrics andhad the bumper pads made with zipper enclosures for easy washing.
I added this Woodland Pendant for a touch of youth and whimsy.
*for all of you mommies out there...this chair is just for looks, her glider/ rocker is just a short distance away in the family room so that she can see their spectacular hill country view...or the tv ;-)*
All of the art in the room is custom. For some of the prints, I found this great art shop in Singapore that creates these unique prints on old French book pages. We used retail ready made frames and mattes to cut down on the cost.
My client also wanted something very simple and light weight above the crib. We settled on letters and custom painted them a distressed gold.
The blue grosgrain ribbon was used in touches throughout the room.
Here is more custom art. I found a vendor on Etsy that sells these great vintage book cover prints. I found the frames ready made and had mattes cut for a custom touch.
The nursery turned out sweet, simple and clutter free. My clients are now home enjoying their space with their new baby girl. They were a joy to work with!
