So this week I’m going to feature a nursery from about a year ago, but it’s still one of my favorites.
Inspiration for this nursery was a vintage travel theme. Although nothing in the nursery is truly vintage, every piece gives a vintage nod. We started with a custom Virtual Room Makeover.
The room is pretty small, about 11′ x 11′ but thats still enough space to design a perfectly functioning nursery. In fact, I kind of enjoy designing smaller spaces, you just have to find smaller scale furniture. We started with the Land of Nod yellow rag rug first. I don’t believe that rug is available any longer, but I will provide a link for a similar rug when I post the “Shop this Room” post laster this week. The random stripes in the rug inspired the random stripes painted on the wall. The wall color is Grey Owl from Ben Moore. The Blue is Smokey Blue from Behr, the same blue that was used in Mom and Dads room. I’m sorry I don’t remember the yellow or black paint color in the stripe.
Mom really loved West Elm’s Patchwork Dresser and while it’s an expensive piece for a nursery, it’s not a dedicated nursery piece. We decided to use it as a changing table by placing (securely of course) a changing pad on top. It can be used as a great piece beyond the need for a changing table, which justifies the price.
I designed a virtual gallery wall with all the sizes and frames Mom and Dad needed to compete the look. Mom had a bunch of photos of all the family members that were, or are pilots. We changed all the photos to a vintage sepia look and created that darling sentimental gallery wall. This gallery wall service will be offered on my Virtual Makeover Packages in a few days. I also have a YouTube video on How to Hang a Gallery Wall.
Mom also found these vintage airplane sheets from Restoration Hardware Baby. I love it when clients add their own touches to their Virtual Makeover Plan.
Mom also shot her newborn photos in the room. I hope baby enjoys his Nursery as much as I enjoyed designing it. (Newborn photos by Megan Port)
