Name: Holly Location: Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
I am a children’s interior designer (Petite Vintage Interiors) who loves to refinish vintage furniture, so when I found a child-size peacock chair on eBay for $50 I knew I wanted to create an eclectic, colourful and fun space for my three-year-old daughter Holly.
When designing my son's nursery, I wanted the space to be calming, with a classy, elegant and timeless look. I stuck with soft and toned down colors as you can see from the soft blue/grey walls and natural wood tones.
Name: Charlie Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (West Philly)
The inspiration for our daughter Charlie's room began with our African safari honeymoon. Then I saw the giant plush giraffe and knew we had to get it - what baby wouldn't be drawn to a large exotic animal in his or her room?
Making a room for Ursula in our new home together took awhile but it was a joy. For her first room to herself in our new life (we were sharing a one bedroom for a year), I was able to take a white sheetrock box with a high ceiling and make it airy but cozy and have plenty of storage for her growing lifestyle of clothes, dolls, costumes and toys.
I started collecting ideas for a travel-themed nursery well before I found out that I was pregnant. My husband Chester and I both love to travel and can't wait to share our adventures with our children someday.
When we found out we were expecting, I knew I wanted a navy blue nursery for the little one, and as soon as we knew it was a girl I decided to add peony pink and aqua to the mix. The whole color scheme was built around the beautiful peony printed fabric from Caitlin Wilson Textiles that i used to make pillows and pulls on the storage bins.
