Name: Tyler (10 months)
Location: Great Neck, New York
We just moved into our new house and found out we were expecting about a year later. We had renovated most of the house and were so excited to redo a bedroom into a nursery!
For our son we wanted a modern yet playful design that didn't scream "baby!" so it could grow with him as he grew and we wouldn't have to update it right away. We got our design inspiration from different websites and blogs. Also, from design shows and magazines. Pretty much from all over! My decorating style is contemporary. I like traditional with hits of modernism.
All of the nursery furniture is from a local store on Long Island. It's Stanley Young America. The glider is the Monte Luca glider and ottoman. The bedding is DwellStudio. All the other items were gifts from friends and family after the baby was born. The Bubble Clock is from Garnet Hill. We had the walls and ceiling painted. The back wall is a chalkboard paint for when Tyler is older and wants to use is imagination. The light fixture is from Shades of Light. The curtains are custom made. The Tyler letters are from Etsyisan BooBahBlue and the alphabet wall is another Etsy find- A Work in Progress Gifts.
My favorite items are the alphabet wall and the curtains and shades. I love the ball fringe! It's so playful! I also love the light fixture which was a second choice. The first fixture we installed was too large for the room. It was a happy accident that we bought this one and I'm so glad we did!
The size of the room is our biggest challenge. Granted, it's for a baby, but the room is tiny. I was worried we had too much furniture and it was tough planning the layout, but it's all come together. Every time I sit in his nursery to feed him I feel happy and fulfilled. It's exactly as I could have imagined.
It's lovely - thanks Jennifer!
