The joy of finding out we were pregnant was beyond anything I ever imagined, and the task of designing a special space for our baby girl soon followed. I did not want the space to scream nursery but instead to be an extension of our home, which has a lot of Scandinavian influence (my husband’s parents are both from Norway). I was inspired by the simplicity of this nursery below with its white walls, clean lines, natural textures, and pops of pink.
While exploring my options and looking for inspiration I fell in love with the Kalon Studios Caravan crib. I could not resist the simplistic Scandinavian style and thus the crib helped to dictate the rest of the aesthetics (I was also sold by the fact that it converts into a toddler bed). For the glider and blackout shades I choose natural light colored linen fabrics. The pillow fabric by Kelly Wearstler is one of my favorites and the color, along with the color of the hamper, brings a nice balance to the raw wood of the crib. I am more of a blue girl, which is obvious in this space, but for my baby girl I wanted to add a little pink. At the Highpoint Furniture Market I found this fun contemporary painting, that I had my artist mother replicate.
It was important for me to create a room that was happy and inviting for both Tindsley and I… a space she could grow into. Every time I walk into her nursery it makes me smile!
