A Glam Gold and Grasscloth Nursery

My Room

Name: Baby Girl
Location: Ontario, Canada

My plan for the nursery was to make the most of a small space that was once a really fantastic walk-in closet! I envisioned a cozy, textural, and fairly neutral nursery.

Growing up my parents had grasscloth in a den that I loved spending time in, so I thought it would be fun to use that on the walls in here. The gallery wall includes pictures of our fantastic mothers (soon to be grandmothers!) as toddlers. I have a thing for gold, so the scheme turned into lots of texture, gold and white. Lots of prints, some graphic elements and a touch of leopard round out the look.

Having inherited a beautiful antique spool bed from my husbands mother's family, I thought it would make a great daybed in the nursery. The issue was space, so after lots of space planing I figured out a way that it would fit. I upholstered the crib's headboard with a block-printed sheet that I came across a while ago and knew I'd use one day. The cute elephant mobile is a Flensted Mobile given to us by a good friend. The vintage wicker shelf was a thrift store find. Both the crib and dresser are both good old IKEA!
