Recently, a good friend found out she was pregnant with a baby girl! To welcome their first, she and her husband came to us for help with the nursery. We sat down to discuss the details.
Client Request: lots of pink with a dash of lavender, girly but not frilly, something fun but not overly sophisticated and a look that would grow with her, not a room that would need to be painted a year later.
Our Solution: Paint the room pink, but add contrast with an off-white accent wall where the crib, and later her bed would be placed. Paint different sized polka dots on the large accent wall (crib wall) in pink, and add 3 accent colors; lavender, chocolate and cinnamon. Also, for a little whimsy, add a smaller accent wall behind the door, with a matching polka dot growth tree to be used to measure her growth throughout the years. (We chose different color/sized polka dots instead of a more even pattern so that the design was more playful, less uniform). We also made 5 hanging circular letter wall art pieces that spell out the baby’s name, however, because the couple has chosen for the name to remain a surprise, the letters have been photoshopped out for now. I’ll replace the photos once the baby has arrived. ;)
Please Note: Due to an overwhelming response to see the nursery photos before the room is totally complete (the couple still has a few last minute touches, like hanging artwork and a shelving unit above the changing table), we just couldn’t wait and had to share the pictures with you.
A panoramic view of the room, beginning with View #1: Polka dot mural accent wall
View #2: Window wall with polka dot curtain tie-backs.
View #3: Changing table & door wall.
And finally, View #4: Polka dot growth tree and closet wall
Here’s a better pic of the growth tree. Of course we couldn’t resist adding a polka dot bird! See him singing down below the tree? Love him!
Enjoy until next time,
