Shortly after we started working on Project Holly, my client found out she was pregnant again- this time with a little girl! The house was originally three bedrooms, two bath, but somehow over the years this smaller bedroom got incorporated into the Master as you can see on the left that doorway. We closed the space back off, creating a closet on the master side, and were left with a sweet tiny little room perfect for a nursery.
I liked the idea of the kids rooms complimenting each other, and really going for it in this small space with a bold wallpaper. Despite being obsessed with this Guermantes print for years and using it as a fabric in Grace’s nursery, I had never seen it in this beige color way and became obsessed. I love the juxtaposition of the beige- which is actually a kind of masculine khaki tone in person, again the bright colorful florals.
Because it is such a small room, I wanted to keep it relatively simple with the other elements so we decided to keep almost everything else pink. We had a little loveseat pullout made to accommodate visiting cousins, and brought in an antique pink rug.
Natalie’s childhood Jenny Lind rocker got a coat of BM Peppermint Pink, as did the crib and an existing light fixture they had. The vintage rocking chair in yellow was a great find and brings just enough edge to the room.
One of my favorite elements is the canopy. I had sourced the yellow block print fabric for another room I was working on and the yellow just wasn’t right. I had it in my bag one day on a site visit, and noticed the colors went perfectly with the wallpaper. The pink, turquoise and yellow were dead on.
Altogether the room is so happy and cozy. The canopy was made so that it can move and transition to a twin bed eventually. The closet in this room is surprisingly huge and so we built in a changing table in there to free up the space for a perfect little bookshelf.
