An Eclectic Nursery
Far from a “themed” children room decor, this nursery has an eclectic and yet very cohesive look. The soft turquoise (Valpar’s Aqua Glow) of the walls and of the ceiling’s lighter shade (Valspar Grand Hotel Mackinac Blue) are the canvas on which the coral accents come to life.
A white Jenny Lind crib is outfitted with very graphic bedding in chocolate brown and white completed with a large floor mirror placed behind it. Common wisdom would say that hanging a mirror above a baby’s crib is far from a good idea, as it could come off its hook and fall. But a floor length mirror, secured at the top to the wall and resting steadily on the floor solves that question won’t you say? What a clever way to widen the small room and bring in a jewel effect. Plus, as baby grows, she will be able to make herself funny faces after nap time!
A vintage chair and dresser have found a second home with some careful TLC. The chair, painted in low VOC paint and upholstered in a lovely and bright trellis pattern bring in a pop of colour. The dresser has been repurposed as a change table and is spray painted in a soft tray tone with its original white lacquered hardware.
The nursery’s look is completed and brought together by the B&W chevron rug. In any room, at any time such a rug makes a statement. A tall chest of drawers, with ornate details, has been painted in a glossy black giving the room added storage and another hit of black, atypical for a nursery but Oh So Lovely!!
