Tamu's Nursery was finished just in time for him! It quickly became the favorite room in our flat. My inspiration began with a blue-green color palette because the walls were already a grayish blue-green.
My daughters share a room, and my youngest was moving out of her crib, so it was time for a refresh. After my oldest picked out the fabric (that ended up on the lampshades) we went off of those colors for preppy funk.
Our girls are close in age, and so it has been very natural for them to share a room. We had two small beds in this room, but as they began outgrowing toddler beds we started looking for a bunk bed solution.
We live in a fairly small two bedroom home in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood. Our first child (a boy) is due on August 6, so we have spent the past several months transforming our guest room into his nursery.
Lily Rose's arrival was five years in the making, so when she finally arrived I had folders full of decorating ideas I couldn't wait to bring to life. I started off with my paint colors which are a combination of traditional pastel pink, neutral white and mushroom, which I think allow the small space to have maximum light but also warmth.
We moved into a Mid-Century ranch when Little Pilot was around six-months-old. This new house gave us the opportunity to redesign his nursery in the vintage-modern style we were craving. We put a lot of DIY elbow grease into his room and are thrilled with the result.
Greta is our fourth child, third girl (in fact, our last baby boy Lewis' nursery was also featured on Apartment Therapy!) We have done the pink and girly thing before so I wanted something different for this room.
The bland room we inherited when we bought our home was in no way reminiscent of our little boy with his big personality. When he transitioned from his crib to his toddler bed, the bed wasn't the only thing that got an update. His room got an entire DIY overhaul with a bold and bright color scheme, some added activity stations and a few clever storage solutions.
