Gender Neutral Nursery



Keeping the gender of your baby a secret can be fun.

For this nursery we kept the palette clean with gray and white and then added some fun pops of yellow. 

The ceiling is one such pop!

We were so EXCITED when the client agreed to go with a yellow ceiling!

The color we went with is "Daisy" by Sherwin Williams.

Gray and white crib bedding

A fun mix of patterns for the bedding.


Floating shelves with brass hardware....


gray and white stripes

.....lots of books, and a collection of owls.

Plenty of extra storage for babie's little keepsakes....

One of my favorite accessories, Jonathan Adler bookends!

And the cutest little shoes put on display!



One side for a boy and the other side for a girl....

I want this pretty little pair in the middle to come in my size!

And thanks to my husband and his handy work, a floating birch branch..

I love that man!

Above the dresser we installed a custom painted alphabet from AlphabetBoutique123 on etsy.
They come unfinished and you can paint them however you want. 




We chose to do all white fronts and then paint the edges of the letters in coordinating colors.

Believe it or not, painting these innocent looking letters took a crew of three people. It was a lot of work! We formed an assembly line at my dining room table. Each person was designated a color and a group of letters. It was intense! 

Helpful letter painting hint: Use a foam brush. 
They are stiff and therefore easier to control and the chisel tipped edge will help keep the edges clean.

Since the client's last name starts with a "V", it had to be different from the rest.....




My Mom is an expert polka dotter!


That about wraps up this nursery tour. 
If you need me, I will be curled up in that comfy gray chair reading this book....




.....learning the ways of the Good Mother! :-)

Have a fabulous week everyone!

It's Been Booming Babies!


Who just ignores their blog and all of it's followers for MONTHS???

Me.


I'm a bad blogger. 

In my defense, lots of babies have been happening for my clients and their rooms needed to be as cute as they are, so lots and lots of CUTE has been happening!


Like this baby girl's room....

Pillows with Caitlin Wilson Textiles. 
Her fabrics are my drug of choice.

I hand painted the floral backdrop.....it was A LOT of fun and I want to do more!

Rose wall







 This sweet melon dresser is a very special piece. It was the dresser that my client had in her room as a little girl and now her daughter will get to use it. Don't you just love furniture that has been passed down?




Same thing with the night stand. It got a fresh coat of white paint and some sweet mint drawers!




What girl doesn't love gold?? 



All Gold EVERYTHING!

 The furry little chair used to look like this:



My client found this on one of her shopping trips. Doesn't she have a good eye?? 




 All of us forgot about the chair as we worked on the room. 
Then, at the last minute, a furry light bulb went on!


....and then my Mom got her hands on it and re-upholstered the back. She did an AMAZING job!

psst...did you know that you can shampoo and blow dry these hides? That little fact makes these furry hides very kid friendly.



She even has a little gold clutch!

I don't know about you but I'm a little jealous of the vintage collection this baby girl has going on. 

NEXT up is a gender neutral baby room with lots of gray, white, and yellow!

Here is a sneak peak....




Can't wait to show you more!
