BIG reveal today, I’m sharing Amelia’s nursery over on Rue Magazine! Since it was my second time around designing a nursery, it felt a little more difficult to decide how I wanted to go about designing the space. I’ve seen how fast Jackson has grown out of the nursery stage of life (see Jackson’s Nursery here). Why do they have to grow up so quickly?
The initial inspiration came from spotting a beautiful grey otomi textile artwork from St. Frank. Having grown up in Mexico City I wanted to bring a little touch of that into Amelia’s room. I always like to start with one special item (in this case, the wall hanging) and then go from there. The rest came together quite seamlessly. Since the space is 8 x 10 and also the walk-through to Jackson’s room (have to love city living) I knew we needed to keep it simple and have the middle area of the room clear for us to get through (or in Jackson’s case – run through).
It’s amazing how such a small space brings my so much joy. Each piece means something. TheSally King Benedictink drawing(a gift from my mom to Amelia)I’ve wanted one of her pieces for years – her work is amazing! ThePehr Designs mobileAmelia could look at for hours – she just stares at it talking up a storm. I love how incredibly soft thePottery Barn Kids rugis for her to lay on as she attempts to roll over. HercribanddresserfromLand of Nodare two of my favorites – I love the color of wood of her crib, it s beautiful grey tone and the dresser matches Jackson’s in case they ever share a room or we use them in the future as nightstands. And lastly,the prayer beads with a heartbrings texture to a blank wall. As you can see, each and every piece was carefully selected.
