Although we are all out of the baby phase (for what I know at least), we still love designing and styling nurseries. And luckily, they keep coming our way.
Our latest client wanted to create a calm and clean room, keeping everything very basic and subtle. Although that generally works very well for a nursery, we did want to spice it up a little, adding a dash of Live Loud Girl-ness as we always want to create rooms that kids grow into, no matter how young they are.
The room was bare, large and light when we saw it first, being a perfect blank canvas for us to get creative. Adding color to the walls was the first thing that came to mind. We used two beautifully complimenting colors from Jotun’s new Kids Collection 2018; Soft Grey and Bare, each on another wall, giving a wonderful and warm effect.
For the third wall we used a Sandberg wall paper, adding a subtle pattern to the room. Against this wall you can find three regular stars yet styled in another way then what you would maybe expect from us.
The Sebra cot with a Numero 74 canopy make a gorgeous little sleeping corner. Next to it the Byron Bay daybed, this time with only some subtle cushioning for our Big Stuffed friend. A setting like this, compared to a recent shoot with this day bed, show you how versatile some items are are and how much you can do with bedding and cushions.
On the floor some soft structure with the Maison Saadah grid rug, perfect for crawlers later on.
A custom made wall cabinet creates a classic and timeless element, serving as a changing table for now with this Archive Store baby basket and cute Severina hand knitted mushrooms. The Snowpuppe lamp brings in a fresh vibe, the LPLN mobile a beautiful distraction for the baby.
On the opposite side, against the wall we placed two IKEA x HAY shelves that will probably fill up with books and toys as years go by. For now we can enjoy them as they are with just dome of our favorite accessories on display like the Sarah & Bendrix animal kingdom, the UUIO blocks, Mikanu pears and good old Velveteen babies garland. A touch of blue is brought in with this LEGO storage, something that will be useful for the coming years.
And no nursery is complete without a cute Pax and Hart print right?
The room is lit by a bird cage lamp, a Vasili Jellyfish lamp, a beautiful new brand we recently discovered. Both are serious eye candy that give a playful touch to the room.
