#4 – Gregory’s Room With A View
Name: Barry and Miranda
Child’s Name and Age: Gregory, 6 months
Size: Apartment, 900 square feet; Nursery, 96 square feet.
All my baskets came from the Container Store. They are used for baby clothes since the nursery has no closets and I needed something cute and sturdy that would go nicely in the room. The bookshelves are the main storage but I didn’t want them looking too cluttered, so uniform color baskets turned out to be the best solution.
What inspired you?
I was inspired by the color blue and the beautiful view out the window of the nursery. It was previously a dining alcove 11′ 6″ x 7′ 9″. I had a wall of bookshelves built when I moved in. So, I hired a contractor to build a wall separating the living room from the alcove and put in a door to the living room and a door to the kitchen. He also filled in the space around the kitchen door with opaque textured glass and he built a changing table that folds down from the shelves.
I inherited the crib from a friend who purchased it and the bedding from Plain Jane in NYC. I mixed the classic style Jenny Lind crib with modern elements like the Kartell fly lamp and the wall decals.
Shopping online for everything was great for me since it was the middle of summer and I was very pregnant. I bought the 2 shades from Smith & Noble, the rug from Crate & Barrel, the Lamp from Kartell, the decals from Blik and the coat rack from Pylones, all online.
