A Soft & Sweet Nursery.

nursery While I've been creating a lot of artwork for homes over the past couple of years, I've also been quietly doing a bit of nursery design. I just got some fun pictures of one of my big projects from last summer and couldn't wait to share them here.

Last spring, Kyle and Christine, an awesome couple from Ohio, contacted me about helping them design a nursery. At the time, I was just coming out of my first trimester sickness and was thrilled to help them out! Since they're in Ohio and I was in California, I couldn't be on the ground helping them paint the room, search for the perfect chandelier or test out gliders, so everything had to be either easy to access online, at a national retailer or simply ideas they could put their own spin on.

After presenting three potential directions for the room, we decided on this design board for their daughter's room:

Hygge & West Nursery Design


One of my favorite elements in the room is this awesome yellow chandelier. Can you believe they found this beauty at a thrift shop and spray painted it that sunny shade? So cool.


Their custom mobile by Etsy artist Amanda Zemon is so seriously awesome I think I might have to get one for Freddie's new room in Minnesota. Amanda did such an amazing job creating this beauty just by taking inspiration from the design board. I especially love the little hearts on the birds, which subtly echo the heart on the adorable Ohio print hanging in the room.

The real show-stopper, though, is the gorgeous wallpaper from Minneapolis-based Hygge & West. It's so fresh and whimsical and is truly the inspiration for the whole room. (Hygge & West blogged about the room here.)

And because I love clever things, I just have to share this. The room doesn't have a closet, so Kyle and Christine needed to get a bit creative with how to store sweet Quinn's clothes. Using the built-in cabinets, they created an open wardrobe and added additional storage by adding bins to the shelves.

And the best part of all? Sweet Quinn! Isn't she just adorable?


I haven't really written much about my decorating services on this blog since I can't take on many projects through the year - I focus mainly on paintings and prints - but after this awesome process and outcome, I might have to change that! If you want to know more about my process, just drop me a note through the Contact page.
