A Preppy Twist: A Little Boy's Nursery
This mommy-to-be and I were instant friends.
I just love when that happens.
We had a great first meeting, and subsequent planning, to get going on her baby boy’s nursery.
First on the list: re-paint the walls that obviously belonged to a little girl during the previous homeownership.
We decided on a soft blue-gray for the walls.
I love the result, and loved working to get things just right.
Baby Boy will be here in a few short weeks!
This is one of my favorite cribs. I have had other clients use it too, and I always think its just as handsome as the last time.
The feel would be soft but preppy, with a bit of a nautical touch via the navy accents and a sweet porthole mirror.
We also blended a few styles – a la’ the Moroccan rug, glam floor lamp, modern glider – which is right up my alley.
Check out the pics I snapped while installing:
I love this little gallery wall, and the simple pieces that we chose to reflect the couple’s life and interests. The mid-century navy dresser is a super fabo find!
The shades of blues and grays are so fun for the little guy. Our light turned out great, and gives a nice glow overhead. I am nuts about the dog art piece too!
Excited to meet the little one soon!
