The nursery, however, was not without its challenges. Design challenge #1: my sister and her husband are renters so they are reluctant to hang anything due to their cement firewalls- it would just be a nightmare to patch them up. Design Challenge #2: They were also reluctant to paint the room since it was just painted and they do not want to repaint when they leave. Design Challenge #3: The room is very modest in size and needed to function not only as a nursery but as a small office for my brother-in-law who is an anesthesiologist. (Need I mention the size and weight of those medical textbooks!) Design Challenge #4: My sister is the client...for those of you who have siblings...you can relate....it doesn't always stay professional....like when I threatened my sister with "pick a rug or I'm picking one for you!".... can't say I have ever given my other clients ultimatums like that!
|We wanted some mod touches and used the colorway of black, steel blue grey and pops of orange.|
|Loving the pouf as a seating option and footrest...in a small space we needed double duty!|
Needless to say, I am very happy with how it turned out, my sister and brother-in-law are very happy and most importantly, my beautiful little nephew, Sabatino Joseph, born in May is sleeping 12 hours a night and I'd like to think my cozy nursery design has something to do with that!!
|Inspired by the expensive Jonathan Adler initial pillow, we found an Etsy option that we loved!|
|Another Etsy find..the stencil was a great alternative to paint or hung art!|
