Kara and Steve's room for their son surrounds him with both sweetness and pieces with integrity and longevity. They tell us more: When we started planning the design for Silas's room we debated between giving him the bigger bedroom and using it as a guest room as well as a nursery. In the end we decided against it because we wanted to create a space that was truly his and something he could grow into.
The most important thing for us in buying furniture was to get pieces that we loved not only as nursery furniture but as stand alone pieces as well. The changing table is a mid century dresser we loved and placed the Oeuf changing table on top. We used the crates before as storage for our books and knick knacks but found it to be a great set up for his toys and objects. The rocker is Jens Risom for DWR - as you can see we love the mid century style.
We also like to mix old and new so a few of the wooden toys are old finds from ebay mixed in with things like the chalkboard skateboard that my husband made for the entry door. He also created the wooden tree behind the crib to go with the vintage wood crates. Overall there is a lot going on but we feel like we were really able to express our aesthetic. We are both designers so it was important to us to create a space that really represented us and our soon to arrive baby boy.
Thanks Kara and Steve!
