Today’s the day! The big reveal of a finished project!
This client came to me pregnant and needing help designing an amazing space for her new baby’s nursery. The space needed new flooring, fresh paint, and new lighting. After tossing around a few different ideas and palettes, we came up with the perfect inspiration: a painting from her favorite artist, Heather Brown.
Using the painting as our inspiration, the room developed into a lovely neutral space filled with natural elements and bright punches of blues and greens.
We selected a new laminate wood flooring in weathered gray and used the espresso crib that she had purchased before the project began. Keeping the budget in mind, we selected a cube storage unit and baskets from IKEA along with a new white dresser (also from IKEA) that we spruced up with some gorgeous knobs from Anthropologie. What a difference the knobs made! You’d never know it was an IKEA dresser.
There was a great debate on how to treat the walls. We talked stripes, a giant wave mural, solid paint, etc etc until we finally came to an amazing consensus: GRASSCLOTH. (Yay!) I’ve always wanted to use grasscloth and I’d like to say a huge thanks to this great client for trusting me enough to go with it! Because glasscloth is definitely a luxury item, we finished just one wall with it at a pretty affordable price. We selected a paint color to blend seamless into the fibers (and it looks stunning!) Finishing only one wall looks really lovely. It still feels really luxurious, but doesn’t overwhelm the space.
A big statement piece in the room is definitely the new light. The driftwood pieces are a perfect match for the theme and are so chic! If we’re being totally honest here, I’m kinda jealous of this baby. I want to move in.
Isn’t is gorgeous?! I so want to be this baby!!
As a gift, the baby’s grandmother contacted the artist (Heather Brown) and had her sign a special message to the new baby on the back of this pretty worn blue frame that features a wood-burned design of the Hawaiian Islands. She also collaborated on the project and helped to select matching linens from Etsy. We were lucky enough to find bedding in a fabric that is reminiscent of the bold lines and palette of the painting. (And how well does that rug go, huh?!)
I’m so happy with how this project turned out! Mahalo to my super client (and her equally fab mom) for being so easy to work with and so trusting of my ideas! It was a breeze to create this lovely space for baby boy! I hope you love it!
