This quaint, petite nursery for our first child Veva Belle, was such a special treat for me to design. I was beyond excited to be expecting our first baby, and since I am an interior designer I couldn’t wait to begin designing her nursery. This room used to be my design office at one point, but now is the perfect space for my baby girl to grow up in. With all the natural light in her nursery my color palette I chose was a base of black and white, with splashes of reds, gold’s and corals. The walls being a crisp white I needed a little character, but the problem with this is we are renting and I couldn’t do anything crazy so I added these fun heart decals. They are super easy to peel on and off, and are great for renters like us. The focal point of course was her chic black crib covered in pokka-dots, floral’s, and red velvet ribbon bedding which my lovely mother helped me make. Over the crib I draped a delicate white net to add a romantic affect, and inside hung a small gold mobile branch, adorned with colorful pom poms, made by my friend Melissa. Next to her crib I placed a modern Eames rocking chair with faux sheepskin to cushion, for all our cuddling and story telling. Underneath one of the windows I centered her dresser/changing table. Now this old dresser is very special to me, I bought it from an elderly woman who didn’t want it any more. It was a very sad looking dresser at the time. My talented husband said he could fix it up in his dads shop, I was 7 month pregnant. A few days after we purchased it I came home to a gorgeous surprise in my garage, my husband had totally transformed this dreary old thing into this absolutely stunning white and black dresser. (I have a photo of me extremely pregnant and ecstatic standing next to this dresser in that surprised moment. I will never forget this special time during the designing of her room.) This nursery was such a delight to design, to see the transformation of my cluttered chaotic design office to the exquisite glamorous nursery. My baby girl loves her room, and could play in it for hours on end. I couldn’t have put her nursery together with out the love and help of my friends and family, whom I am so blessed with.
