Baby Girl's Nursery Design

I'm living vicariously through a client of mine:  She's having a baby girl and I designed her nursery!  I'm doing the final installation today with my assistant, Meghan, and we're so excited!!

My client was looking for a fun, sophisticated nursery.  {When I walked into her living room for the first time, it looked like it had been done professionally, although she did it herself, so she has an amazing sense of style.}  She wanted fresh & happy and not over-the-top girly.  She's drawn to paisley and florals.  I thought I'd share our plans with you, so here's the floorplan we created for her:




And here's a quick peek at the pieces selected:

{The mobile (top left) has been custom made in our colors from Pink Perch on etsy.   We've done curtains out of the Schumacher floral (top right) and used the paisley blockprinted crib bedding, lamp, chair & table pictured.}

Here's a close-up of the Schumacher fabric:


It's wild & fun & not your typical girly floral. 

We mixed a few Pottery Barn kids pieces with a custom green viney chandelier by Stray Dog Designs  (one of my new favorites for lighting!) and an overscale seaweed print that we'll be tacking up with nailhead.  The "LILY" drawing on the right is a mock-up of a framed fabric panel with wooden beads & letters draped over it for the room.  The green polka-dotted fabric at bottom right is the fabric we used.


Here's a pic of the project {mid-stage} to give you an idea of what it actually looks like:


We're leaving in a couple of hours & I cna't wait to share 'after' pics with you!!
Even if I never have a little girl of my own (fingers still crossed though!) at least I got this chance to do little sweetie Lily's nursery!!  She's due in May and we're so happy for our clients!! 


xoxo, Lauren

What a beautiful sophisticated yet whimsical design. I always love how you introduce florals in your rooms. I never use them in my home but have become very inspired to maybe try! I really love the Lilly frame. So adorable. I am so glad that you are able to still keep your blog up to date since you are so very busy. I really enjoy reading your posts and getting an inside peak at what you do! The room you did in the design home was just so special {loved the large window seat}l! I am sure you are going to get even busier now and much recognition for your style and creativity! Have fun!

Love it! Girly (but not frou frou) nursery Pure Style style:)
I'm drawn to paisleys and greener (as opposed to pink) florals myself lately.

I love the colors, the design, every detail of this project.

It is warm and comfortable without being sentimental.

I think Lilly will like it. My name is Liliana and I like it!

Oh so sweet! Well done Lauren. My daughter (also named Lauren) has gone by the nickname Lolly forever - until about a month ago. Now she has renamed herself Lily ('can we change it legally?' - she's only 8!). So, I am very partial to the name Lily AND Lauren. Hugs.

I'm also an Interior Designer but that's been put on hold since I'm staying at home with my three little kiddos. Your blog makes me feel like I'm still connected through your beautiful projects. Blessings!

Catrina said...

Love the blue ball lamp that you picked. I have it on my mood board for my living room design, but haven't found anywhere that has it in stock. Do you mind sharing where you got it from?

I'm looking forward for the real photo of this plan. I'm thinking that green is a fresh color and the baby will definitely love it. Great creativity and design, eh.
