Once upon a time, I was contacted by a fabulous client with fabulous taste (& a boat load of fabulous items all ready to be used!) Being a client of mine already, I had the privilege to already have a feel for their taste & was thrilled when they announced they were pregnant & wanted me to help with the nursery design! Not wanting any fairy princesses or tutu themes we moved forward with a more sophisticated approach to a Chic & Modern Nursery design.
The whole plan started here with the inspiration…
Most of the rooms colors were coming from the client’s existing kilim rug… sorry ya’ll! No source for that beauty. We decided a feature wall of faux grasscloth would just take the room to the next level. Going faux allowed for the beauty & durability… this stuff is scrubbable & forgiving! And after I proposed a MAJOR diy project inspired by the lovely Dina over at Honey + Fitz, & my pregnant client agreed to take on the task of a starry ceiling… I knew this project was going to be amazing. A few changes later we had the design done!
Ladies & Gentlemen (if there are any of you out there…) let me introduce a very Chic & Modern Nursery!
Her existing glider was recovered in a classic navy. That way it can easily transition to another room post baby or be a great option if baby number two ever comes along…
The drapery panels were plain panels from Ikea that had a row of pom pom trim attached to the inside edge. This can be sewn or glued on depending on skill level. The bedding does not have to be purchased as a set. To give it that eclectic feel, the Bumper & Skirt were purchased from Serena & Lily & the preppy plaid crib sheet came from The Land of Nod.
The Word Art was created by myself. I found a fun font & had the client select words & that was it! She had them printed at a local photo lab (like a drugstore, Target or Shutterfly) & framed them in Ikea Frames.
The upholstered folding screen from World Market (which is no longer available) acts as a headboard for the Babyletto Hudson Crib.
These clear shelves are not your standard bookshelf which I love! & you won’t believe the price on these.
The sconces, mirror & navy dresser were all my clients items. They just hadn’t been paired together yet. It’s like they were meant to be! Those sconces along with the stars on the ceiling are simply perfection.
The Starry Ceiling! As mentioned before, the tutorial for this came from the amazing Honey + Fitz! They are contact paper stars that were cut on a Cricut Machine & painstakingly placed on the ceiling. I felt a bit like a mean designer asking my client to do this… had I been close, I would have volunteered to help!
**Note: My client searched for the star shape for a Cricut machine & found this one (made for baked goods) that worked best!**
AH-MAZ-ING… It turned out exactly as I pictured it would. An eclectic mix of all things fabulous.
As I said before, the majority of the pieces were from the client’s home already. She simply shot pictures of extra things she had lying around the house & we shopped her home! By incorporating a crib, some bedding and a large cozy rug the space instantly became baby friendly without a theme in sight. Many of these elements could easily be transformed into an adult space as well.
Big thanks to my client for putting all of this together, the pictures & all the hard work!! And everyone needs to send some extra love her way as she is about to have this baby any day!! Lucky little girl to come home to this nursery!
