Glory's Sweet, Simple Space

Nursery Tour

Name: Glory
Location: North Carolina
Room Size: 150 sq. ft.

When I first came across baby Glory's space I was instantly smitten with the warm simplicity, gorgeous natural light, and sweet touches. Her mother, Whitney, did an amazing job of mixing modern and more traditional pieces into the nursery in a way that makes it feel fresh but cozy. Read on to find out more about this sweet and peaceful space.

How would you describe the look and feel of this room? Light, simple, and sweet.

What is your favorite piece or element? We installed one wall with wallpaper that's very subtle. You might not even notice it until you catch it in the light, and I love that element of surprise.

What was the biggest challenge decorating this room? Not going too girly or too baby. I also tried to use furniture or decor that I already had -- so making things flow can always be a challenge.

Do you have any advice for parents creating a room for their child? I think it's important to create a space that a child can grow with. There are elements that can change here and there but the overall feel of the room can last for years to come.

If money were no object, what's your dream source? I love the styles from Dwell and Oeuf.
