We will be welcoming our new baby boy, London, any moment now. Yes…shrieks of excitement are welcome. So, in keeping with happy announcements, I’m also thrilled (and relieved) to note that our nursery is finally ready! It’s essential that you design a nursery in reflection of your own personal style. For London’s room, I didn’t take to a particular “theme.” Instead, inspired by the amazing nursery and children’s interior designers Sissy and Marley, I focused on an eclectic combination of interesting items alongside cool, pale hues in shades of black, blue, white and grey with pops of monochromatic metallic. The result feels natural and easy-going, yet crisp and creative — thus, perfectly suiting my family’s personality.
Let’s talk about gold. For the past few years, metallic gold has been a favorite from fashion to home décor and continues to sincerely command in terms of current nursery design trends. No matter what concept you’ve dreamt up to welcome your new baby into this crazy beautiful world, adding touches of gold is always a bright idea. I love this Ellie Cot by Incy Interiors!
Nothing. Is. Perfect. I didn’t want anything baby-blue-typical, so these Pax and Hart prints alongside the Vivid Wall Decals lightening bolts provide a great mix-matched, black and white contrast. Side note: babies love black and white patterns! Plus, embellishing your walls with decals is a great way to get that wallpaper feel, but without the commitment.
Tribal Time. Always a hit when it comes to DIY, the Navaho-inspired look proves you can appeal to a growing babies needs without sacrificing your design desires. I chose a teepee (which doubles as a great play area), as well as a Arlo & co father garland and a Chief and Kewpie wall hanging.
Cozy Corner. Of course, I wanted to make sure the room tied together with aspects of relaxation and ease. To do this, I turned to a few of my favorite brands for comfort: The Home Collective cushions, Made by Mosey cushions and Kip & Co linens.
Toy-riffic. Step aside, Teddy Bears. La De Dah Kids create these fabulously quirky little Crotchet Toys, all of which are ethically handmade by a team of women in Asia who are able to generate an income throughout the year benefiting their entire community.
Infant Inspiration. We all need it! Signs of motivation are decorative and — let’s face it — helpful. Here, we went with a felt “To The Moon and Back” handmade by Homey Creatures.
Obviously, our nursery design would not be complete without some Design Twins! We’re proud to say our Gold Spotty Pot fits perfectly in the corner of London’s little nook. With so much wonderful craftsmanship and innovation ruling the children's market these days, we truly had such a blast styling this nursery.
Until next week,
Mitch & Crystal
