Sweet Nursery For Two…

IMG_1819Here’s a peek at a nursery project that  I’m working on for a beautiful family in Trestle Glen, Oakland.

Before:  A little-used spare bedroom needed to be converted to a nursery for the family’s just turned two-year old son and their soon to be born daughter.

Part of the challenge – to incorporate this glider which has  sentimental value…IMG_4254…while working with the existing bedding lovingly made by the child’s grandmother.  This was a particular challenge as the fabrics were purchased in Hawaii and finding fabric that would compliment and be appropriate for a baby girl would be challenging.

My proposal further developed the fun tropical vibe that the family had going for their toddler with some additional layers and textures.  I really wanted to use these gorgeous fabrics by Lulu DK for Schumacher which to me are sophisticated and fresh for either a boy or a girl.

The glider and ottoman received new upholstery in Sunbrella cotton for durability with piping in the fun Lulu DK fabric to coordinate with the crib bedding.

There is still more work to be done in this room and we are converting the previous nursery into a guest room.  This is a good example of  how I can work with clients using their existing pieces while adding to and elevating the overall design concept.   Stay tuned for more from this project!
