Tell us a little bit about your vision for the nursery!
My husband and I kept the gender of our baby a surprise so it made nailing down all of the nursery details difficult until after we had our baby! I decided pretty early on that I would go neutral with white items for our larger pieces (crib, rocker, changing table, rug) and then fill in with either pink or blue accents once we found out whether we were having a boy or girl (curtains, wallpaper, pillows, bumpers, throws).
How did you land on Hockney Sky for your curtain pattern?
I found Pepper while I was pregnant and was absolutely blown away at how beautiful everything was. I knew that either the light blue or light pink palettes were the perfect fit for the space - they are subtle and soft enough for a nursery but also bold enough to make a fun statement. I've always loved mixing and matching fabrics and patterns and loved the idea of doing a simple stripe wallpaper paired with the fun and lively pattern of the Hockney curtains. After we had our boy, I knew Hockney Sky was the one!
Can you share where the crib, art, chair, and rug are from?
The crib is the Airin Spindle Crib from Restoration Hardware. I loved how beautiful and well made this piece was and the fact it transitions to a daybed. I also loved this three in one convertible crib as another option. The chair is the Highgrove Swivel Glider and I have been so impressed with the quality for the price! I wanted something comfortable and aesthetically pleasing that wouldn't break the bank if we had some wear and tear on it from high usage. The rug is this Geometric Flatweave Ivory Area Rug and it pulls the room together with the subtle pattern but is also plush enough for a crawling baby!
What tips do you have for designing a little one’s nursery?
I would say invest in pieces that can grow with your baby! Our crib is one that can convert into a bed as my son grows and our changing table has a removable top that makes it a dresser for when he is older! I would also pick a few pieces that can serve as fun decor but also be a functional addition to the space, like these sweet and beautiful stacking baskets. I chose these to hold all of the stuffed animals and toys - a stylish way to keep the space tidy! These acrylic bookshelves are not only cute but they also hold all of his favorite books!
