nice and neutral nursery

Pardon the serious lack of blog posts last week, but it was for good reason.  Besides the birthday excuse, I have been very busy working on, well . . . work!  Today I'm excited to share a little more of the nursery project I've been trying to pull together.  The client had already chosen the bedding (this one for a girl), and wanted a room where the foundation pieces could easily be adapted for a more masculine child's room in the future (if needed).

The room is located in an attic-type space where the ceilings are sloped to the exterior walls of the room and, because of this, the room itself already feels quite cozy.  So it seemed the perfect space to introduce a heavily neutral palette, to create a light and open feel, and to allow for easy conversion down the road.

  1. West Elm Tripod Wood Floor Lamp
  2. Restoration Hardware Tailored Track Arm Swivel Glider in White Brushed Cotton with Toast Trim
  3. Urban Outfitters Magical Thinking Woven Wall Mirrors
  4. IKEA Lack Wall Shelf in Birch Effect
  5. Urban Outfitters Magical Thinking Embroidered Diamond Curtain
  6. Serena & Lily Rope Rug, 5x7
  7. Serena & Lily Shell Trellis Crib Sheet
  8. Serena & Lily Lola Crib Bedding
  9. Oilo Band Pillow in Blush
  10. Land of Nod Streets of Paree Buildings Throw Pillow
  11. Serena & Lily Wayne Pate Seagull Pillow Cover
  12. Land of Nod Ribbon Throw Pillow
  13. Land of Nod Head in the Clouds Pillow
  14. PB Teen Cushy Lounge Ottoman Cushion in Cement Faux Suede
  15. Pottery Barn Kids Kendall Low-Profile Crib in White
  16. Land of Nod Charming Hamper in Herringbone/Pink
And here's the plan (though I'm not quite sold on this exact layout yet):
I am still working on collecting art and photos for a small gallery wall for the space above the crib and picking a color for the existing cabinet to be painted.  Perhaps something bright - teal?  green? Any suggestions?  Right now the room seems a bit matchy matchy for my tastes so a great color surprise might add just the right finishing touch.

  1. I love what you've pulled together! I can really feel it being a good cozy space for several years, but still soft enough for baby. I can see the the color you have added is some muted coral/watermelon instead of traditional baby-pink. Perhaps a hit of that, a bold stripe or two of that color? Also love the idea of the pom poms in this nursery:

    super colorful but totally temporary.
