VISIT TRIPP'S NURSERYWhat was your inspiration in designing this room? We wanted to create a fun masculine room that Tripp could grow into. The idea was to keep most of it crisp and clean while having fun with some whimsy and touches of red. What is your favorite element? The Alphabet wall. It is a big statement in the room and takes up almost one entire wall.
What was your biggest challenge? Furniture placement. Nursery furniture goes along the borders of the room, that is just necessary. It can make it difficult to space plan though. Also, the window is not centered in the room, so we had to play a trick with the drapery panels. Tell us about the amazing red crib and daybed! The crib and daybed are both craigslist finds. We gave them new life with a coat of red paint. The daybed is very functional too. It is a place for guests to sleep, or Mommy if needed. Also, the room will easily convert to a toddler room when we are ready. What was your biggest indulgence? The alphabet wall and Polka Dot Glenna Jean Fabric.
