Nursery for a special baby girl
I got a call from a dad who wanted to do a surprise nursery for his wife and new baby daughter. Both mother and daughter were having a bit of a rough go, and were in the hospital when he called me. I could hear his worry and love for his family over the phone. His wife admired a little girl’s room, that I had decorated and blogged about. There was no one to make design decisions. He wanted a nursery like the little girl’s bedroom and it had to be pink. Be positive and move quickly forward.
We got much of the room together in 6 weeks. It was entirely custom. A huge feat, which I must really thank my vendors for making such accommodations. It was a nursery that would grow into the little girl’s bedroom. The changer would be very temporary. They needed adequate storage and a comfortable glider to feed the baby.
This was the room before…
I decided not to wallpaper the entire room, as the wall’s quirky angles would hinder the look of the paper. We did one wall. It looked like an outline of a house. Perfect. I chose a sunny yellow crib to welcome the little one home.
This very traditional armoire looks a bit more transitional, when we added the lattice fabric. It will be nicely centered against the wall when additional muscle arrives. It is a solid piece.
It was really a very rewarding job. Baby is just thriving and I’ve gotten to finally know the lovely mom.
