My Room: Gavin
Gavin’s room pleasingly mixes blues and greens for a totally modern look. Angeli tells us more: My first challenge was to make a dark room into a nursery so first, I decided that the colors needed to be peaceful but lots of fun so I chose ocean light blue, blue and lime green.
I decided to have horizontal lines across the accent wall which created a fun and inventive environment. I decided to mainly go with White furniture to give a clean crisp look. I chose a sleek modern crib and dresser in the Oeuf Classic.
The glider I searched the longest for. Everything that I saw was boxy, old fashioned and made of fabrics I did not like. I ended up customizing an EQ3 Karbon chair in white leather, which is very easy to clean. The side table was very mod and white and I really liked the shape. For a light fixture I fell in love with the Le Klint pendant and it became one of the biggest focal points in the nursery. I finished up the furniture with colored floor tiles by FLOR and customized toy boxes by VIA.
After the furniture arrived, it was time to personalize and really make this a unique nursery. First I created a new friend for my son…he is a friendly robot and he would be found all over the nursery. I designed three fun scenes with the robot, printed them and framed them on white frames. I made a special alphabet art painting on canvas painted by his own mommy, I sewed him a robot pillow which I created from felt and fabric and a robot plushie out of fleece.
I also made a crib skirt and cornice of the same blue fabric and white stripe I used for the pillow and carried it throughout the room to tie everything together. There was a hideous old Air Conditioner unit on the wall that we could not remove, so I sewed a cover for it that looks like a cloud. To tie this in with the rest of the room and the blue color I decided to add more clouds to the theme. First I got different sized cloud decals from Dali Decals and to top it all off, I had a local carpenter create a special cloud shelf for me.
I then rounded out the room with a cute green lamp so I can read to my son while in the glider. I also purchased an IPOD Nano to download all of his favorite songs to and got the awesome I-Boo to use as Ipod speakers. I installed a white shelf over the cloud/AC Unit which I placed some pictures and wood toys on. Then I loaded his toy boxes and cloud shelf up with tons of stuffed animals and toys.
