Covid be damned, Jack was on the way, so we got to work getting the nursery in order.
Having a gender-neutral space was important, since the possibility of a family expansion was part of the master plan. We started out by choosing a soft gray pallet infused with primary colors. An original framed photo by iconic photographer Gray Malin led the way. A gray elephant with colorful balloons was our inspiration.
We expanded on the theme with a feature wall of simple geometric gray wallpaper and a soft gray wool rug covers the hardwood floors. A crib with coordinating bedding, and a soft chair for Mom and Dad to visit was on the list, along with a comfy ottoman, side table and lamp to make sure extended stays were comfortable.
A soft roman shade with blue tape punctuates the space, while natural caning on the changing table, beaded chandelier and Moroccan inspired ottoman added a few boho touches.
This Bath is for the Birds…
As part of the same project, we also remodeled the small bath across the hall. The goal here was to have some fun, but not too much fun (haha) so that the bath feels appropriate for kids and visitors alike.
Our client loved this Hygge & West pattern which we found was available as a shower curtain and became our inspiration for the space.
We started out with a fun blue penny round tile for the floor, and neutral subway tile for the rest of the shower space.
An oak vanity topped in textured quartz with the look of concrete, and chrome fixtures with a contemporary flair is fun for kids but sophisticated enough for guests.
