Taylor's Abstract Castle Nursery

My Room

Name: Taylor (1 month)
Location: Chicago, IL

Taylor's nursery was created with the initial idea of a castle that's suited for my "princess," I wanted to create a castle that was flattering and would compliment my modern décor.

At 7 months pregnant, as I set out to design Taylor's castle, I needed my T-square ruler, pencil and tape to start the outline. Taping and painting took the longest, because I needed to paint each layer separately and waited a day for it to dry but what a beauty when it was all done. I chose pastel colors in pink, orange and yellow because I knew it was going to counterbalance the gray on the surrounding walls.

I looked all over for the perfect rug that will lend a hand to my castle theme. I came across this Union Jack rug while browsing on Gilt.com. I knew this was it. Received the rug and absolutely love it, I would love to purchase another.


Thanks Mullan!
