The editors of Project Nursery must have loved our nursery design because they splattered it all over their social media and we received two awards!
Amazing comments, praise and heaps of social media sharing and shout-outs for this nursery design. To send that love back out, we donated our winnings to Comfort Creators. A charity organization with a mission to support and comfort families affected by childhood cancer through the transformation of their interior home spaces.
Take a look at the photoshoot and project description below.
To quickly toss and hide all the toys, an oversized storage ottoman is perfect and it’s also nice for propping your feet up during story time. It’s perfect to sit on during sleep training and midnight feedings. The vibrant blue/green chandelier mimics the rug and brings in a touch of elegance to this nursery design.
Functional and Fun Side Table
Next to the glider is an animal leg table for easily placing a bottle. Flanking the crib are two ladder bookshelves with large bottom drawers for additional storage.
Little details like the blue/green glass closet knobs help to bring in more of the nursery design color palette, adding to the overall look. Branch hooks are hung above the closet door and the giraffe mounted to the wall is gazing toward the crib. Babies love busy patterns so we chose the oak tree wallpaper. The bird mobile will keep him entertained by both for hours.
The dresser doubles as a changing table and has been updated with zebra and number pulls. Working with a strict budget we paid attention to the little things like changing the hardware on an inexpensive dresser to give it a custom feel without the price tag.
Using the Child’s Name as Inspiration
Hunter’s name was the inspiration for this nursery design; it had to be special, playful and magical. This is a modern take on a forest theme. The color scheme (blue, green and blue-green) is great for bedrooms because of the calming effects they produce. The focal point in the room is the custom neon sign that says “Hunter.” It’s written in his grandmother’s handwriting and will be a keepsake for him, but for now, it’s his night light.
