Oh what fun! I am so glad to be here today sharing photos from my latest project, baby Victor's nursery. The space feels so airy, but cozy. There is a beautiful texture wall made from wood and white 3D wall tiles. A little bit of green, some gray and a touch of red brings life to the space. The room is a continuation of the design style of my home. But here it has a whimsical feel. With lion and horse figures, animal art prints, and a fox decal, this nursery is a woodland heaven. The whole concept for the room was a space that could be easily transformed from a nursery, to a toddler room, and so on. So I focused on creating a space that could be multifunctional. I wanted to be able to replace the crib for a bed without having to completely re-do the room. My idea was to create a focal wall as a backdrop for the crib. For that wall, I used 3d wall tiles in white, that bring movement and a lot of interest to the nursery. Once it is time to replace the crib with his bed, this focal wall, will serve as a beautiful headboard. On the opposite side of the crib, storage space is made with two larger drawers, which are perfect for large toys, blankets, and the very essential diapers. The changing table will also work as a desk for when baby Victor is older. The unique changing table/desk uses the same wood that was applied on the wall. The use of the same material always helps when you want to create a cohesive look in a space. I chose to create a gallery wall with framed artwork featuring the animal art prints by Sharon Montrose. The use of framed art is a good idea for a room that might require some change in the near future because you can easily change the artwork as your child' interests evolve, while still keeping the look of the room similar. Although, if Victor ever gets tired of these darling prints, I will hang them in my own room. For more ideas on how to create a gallery wall visit my Pinterest board here. As far as the colors and décor items for the room, I opted for neutral colors and pieces that would work for both boys and girls since I didn't find out the baby's sex. See my birth story here for more details about this overwhelming surprise. Keeping a room gender neutral is not an easy task, but a very fun one. And I really enjoyed staying away from the usual pink and blue colors this time around. Baby Victor's room is truly a reflection of my design aesthetics. The room features the new cloud mobile by Trendy Peas in white, as well as custom color canvasses, the birth announcement, and Trendy Peas' wall decal. What a joy to design and produce items to be used in my own nursery. So, what did you think? Have you designed a gender-neutral nursery before? What were some of your challenges? If you are about to design such a space, I hope you find inspiration from this nursery. Have fun decorating.
