In need of blue and green nursery inspo? Look no further! Megan Pinckney Rutherford recently designed her son's nursery in their lake house using Hockney Moss and Frida Green. Follow along to learn more about her design decisions and how she used the fan-favorite patterns to create a whimsical space for her little one.
First off, tell us a little bit about yourself!
My name is Megan Pinckney Rutherford. I’m a content creator, a retired beauty queen, and the mama of the sweetest baby boy! I grew up in Charleston, but have relocated to Columbia, SC to be with my husband. We live downtown, but have been renovating a home on the lake for nearly two years. Slowly but surely, it’s coming together! One of my favorite completed rooms right now is my son’s nursery.
What does your home say about you?
I hope our home says “we respect tradition, but we also love when things are a little unexpected”!
What was your design vision for the nursery?
I wanted Teagan’s nursery to feel whimsical, but also be a place that would grow up with him. Being on the lake also really made me want to emphasize the colors blue + green.
What drew you to our Hockney Moss curtains?
I felt like the color of the Hockney Moss curtains is bold enough to make a statement, but the print was simple to allow the Frida Green wallpaper to still be the star of the room.
How did you land on Frida Green wallpaper for behind the crib?
That wall is the first thing you see when you pass Teagan’s nursery, so I knew it needed to make the biggest splash. I fell in love with how this whimsical wallpaper has a hint of masculinity to it. It felt like the perfect scene for a little boy to stare at and daydream! The colors matched perfectly with the crib, so it felt like not pairing the two would have been a missed opportunity.
Can you tell us a little about the other design choices in the space?
This Candy Cloud crib by NESTiG was the very first piece I chose for Teagan’s room, so in many ways it’s what inspired everything else! I loved the color and the fact that it is a 3-in-1 convertible crib and will grow with him.
Teagan’s bedtime routine is one of my favorite parts of the day, and no night is complete without a bedtime story. We have a huge collection of books, so that we never have to get tired of reading the same ones!! I think it’s so important for him to see himself in the imagery he’s processing, so the majority of our books are written by Black authors.
