I have a secret to tell you…. I have a huge soft spot for decorating nurseries. Don’t get me wrong, I love designing livingrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, etc, but there is just something so soothing creating a warming and welcoming space for a new life. A precious baby that is welcomed into the world and has a space all to themselves.
I had the pleasure of working with a client in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, who gave me pretty much full rein of her daughter’s nursery. She already knew the color scheme I had intended to use, and together we agreed on the “Little Spirit Nursery”. Truth be told, if I was to have another baby girl of my own, I would have done a nursery very similar to this. Naturally I was over excited to complete this project for baby Jacki.
The color of this room was done in Benjamin Moore’s Crème de Mint. A pastel bluey-green (more leaning toward the green side). The room was originally a bright orange color so it took a few coats to cover, but the end result was worth it.
These fab flowers are made by Urban Walls and I must say, that was the best vinyl I have ever worked with! It’s sturdy and you could place it on a black wall without the black showing through. 5 Star rating for those!
The banner was a mix of all sorts of different fabric. I loved the look of different textures. It was a quick project to really pull all of the colors together.
I have a huge obsession with collage walls, and what a better place then to put it above the dresser. I had a great collection of frames, woodwork from some local talent, and some pieces found at our Edmonton Home and Garden Show.
How stunning were these knobs? These were found on Amazon and worth the wait! They have a bit of a vintage feel and so much character. You can find them here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00NGHSDK8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The best part about adding crafts to a room, is that you can literally make them any color to fit the space. That’s why I designed this piece and painted some rustic arrows to tie in with the décor.
Seriously how adorable is baby Jacki! She came to check out her room and she definitely approved!
This took a few hours to make, and the result was magnificent. We ended up hanging it above the crib, but I wanted to put in this photo so you could see the design a bit better. It does match in with the wall in the nursery quite nicely.
I wasn’t too sure if I would be able to fit this frame in the room, and I am so happy I was able to. It ended up being one of my favorite decorations. It took the meaning to a floating shelf to a whole new level!
Details, details, details! This room was all about the little details. I am so thrilled with how this room came along. Feel free to leave any questions or comments you may have. Here is the last picture of the “Before” photos. An amazing transformation completed by Illustrious Interiors.
