Name: Rylie Beverly Scott, 7 weeks old
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Room Size: 12′ x 14′

Liz Scott is a Los Angeles based fabric designer, so it only makes sense that the nursery she created for her daughter, Rylie, is brimming with gorgeous, colorful prints on chairs, banners, and bedding. The beauty is certainly in the details in this space. From handmade plush animals to sweet vignettes carefully arranged on vintage wall shelves, Rylie’s nursery is a breezy mix of old and new.

What was your inspiration for this room? My starting point was vintage-inspired prints and woodland animals. As I worked on the room, it morphed into a very eclectic space. The finished look is vintage, modern, handmade, with items from my childhood, animals and dolls all mixed together.

What is your favorite element in the room? Instead of repainting, wallpapering or using wall graphics, I decided to wrap some favorite fabric around canvas stretchers and hang them above the crib. The fabric is from the Meadowsweet collection by Sandi Henderson. I love the way the orange, red and pink look on the aqua walls. I made a bunting with the same fabric for my baby shower and it now lives in the nursery above the crib.

What was your biggest challenge? My biggest challenge is that the nursery is also my studio. I had to figure out how all of my sewing and craft supplies, computer, printer, scanner and sewing machine would fit in the same room. Luckily there is a big walk in closet in the room, and I do all of my sewing in there. I was able to fit all of my other work related stuff in quite seamlessly as well. Somehow, it all works . . . for now anyway.

Tell us about the beautiful fabrics you design and how you incorporated them into the room. I have a fabric collection of my own called Sugar Pop! that I created for Moda Fabrics to be released in December. Unfortunately, I was not able to get sample yardage until June after much of the nursery was already designed. However the seat cushion is made from my fabrics and the banner with Rylie’s name uses some of my fabric.
