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……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.
After: Some modifications were made to the design proposal to suit tastes and budget. What remained…new woven roman shades, fresh paint, and whimsical rug that evoke a school of fish swimming present a cohesive envelope for the nursery. Keep in mind that this is still a work in progress but I am delighted with the evolution thus far…
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!
