What is the theme of the nursery?
There is no real theme for this nursery, but the idea was to create a space where the child could explore their creativity and engage in imaginative play. The parents wanted a room that could grow with their child and be modified in the future without spending a lot of money.
Can you please walk us through some of the design details in this nursery?
The star decals and the heart are from Urban Walls
. They are the design element that initially inspired this space. We wanted to create a room that included gold stars and a navy blue ceiling without becoming too thematic. We wanted to use all the walls (including the ceiling) to incorporate different design elements, so that the room is interactive no matter where the little toddler is standing, sitting, or lying down!
We also wanted to incorporate some of the client’s existing pieces. We updated the two vintage kid’s dining chairs by recovering them in a palms fabric from Tonic Living
. We decided to stick with fabrics and colours throughout that were unisex and perhaps not typical (black, white, blue, green and gold). The bed is an expandable bed from IKEA that can grow with the baby. It’s a great place to cuddle up for nap time. The tee pee was definitely a must, and will be a fun place to play for many years to come.
The limited-edition artwork is from Gooseberry Prints
and was a great addition to the space. Actually, the toddler picked the animal prints she loved the most, making them even more special! Cute animals are a necessity in any child’s room! The carpet tiles are from Flor
and are great for kid’s rooms, as individual tiles can be put into the washing machine or easily replaced if need be. The tree trunk nightstand is from West Elm
, as are the white fluffy throw pillows – the perfect finishing touches for this cozy space.
