I am an interior designer in the Toronto area and this is the nursery I designed for my baby boy, Jonah! It is an energetic and clean contemporary nursery in Toronto's east end town of Leslieville. What a joy it was to work on this project, and a perfect baby boy it's for!
It's always a challenge to work in a small space, especially a nursery, which tends to need a number of baby gadgets and furniture! I didn't want to settle for small scale pieces that would be too small in our future dream home ;) so I made a conscious and thought through decision. I purchased a large and convertible crib that could grow with my baby (this Dutailier one has 3 settings, growing into a twin bed) and opted for a smaller feeding chair (after all, babies don't breastfeed forever!)
I was inspired to use a monochromatic palette which is reflected in the FLOR carpet tiles and Flensted mobile. I did something unique, which was incorporating a Philips LED strip underneath the crib to act as a nightlight that I could control from my iPad. It looks uber modern and I know my son will love being able to change the hue to any color of the rainbow when he's older! With pops of color and customized furniture, this streamlined nursery is hip, modern and the ideal space for me, dad and baby to enjoy!
