THE PAINT COLORS
The walls, trim, and doors were sprayed BM Lehigh Green/Parsley snips (Eggshell), and the ceiling is 50% Farrow Ball Light Blue and 50% BM White Dove (matte). I absolutely love this shade of green – it’s not too dark and not too light.
Depending on the time of day, it reads deep dark green-blue to light forest-y green. It’s my favorite dark green paint I’ve used yet!
THE WINDOW TREATMENTS
I used this Calico fabric for the drapes and I am smitten with how they turned out. The pom trim is such a sweet little detail that truly makes them feel special.
I’m continuously blown away by Calico’s customer service, products, and installation team, and have spoken to others who can also attest to their products & services. I learn something new about window treatments every time I visit my local store and work with one of their designers (they offer free design services).
Their window treatment guide is really helpful if you’re interested in learning about the (many) types of window treatments.
I found the unicorn oushak rug on page 489 of Etsy but it wasn’t large enough to fill the room (it’s 7×9), so I went to my fav eBay rug shop that sells manufactured damaged rugs for a deep discount and got a 10×10 seagrass rug to layer underneath.
THE MOLDING & DOORS
The Metrie New traditional molding and casing throughout was here from my office makeover (which matches the molding installed in other rooms), but we added Metrie’s casing for our new closet doors and entry door.
The doors were replaced by our contractor – I believe they’re standard hollow-core Masonite. You can see the before photos here.
One of my favorite artists – Alexis Walter – truly created the most special commission for this room. I sent her the color palette and she created such a gorgeous, serene piece of art that I will forever cherish.
The bunny art was a print from Saatchi – a fun play on the Radish fabric
THE CASE GOODS
The antique bamboo dresser was a Facebook Marketplace find. Bamboo is a classic and I think this piece would work wonderfully in any room – but especially in a baby boy’s room. I decided to take an asymmetrical approach to style the mirror and lamp and I really like how it turned out.
The second chest – a beautiful French Linen Etienne dresser – which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time – was generously gifted by Frontgate. I was drawn to the classic Louis XVI style shape, brass-ring handles and cast escutcheons.
Unlike a true French antique, it has some useful modern features like smooth-gliding drawers, a power outlet and USB port (!!!!)
You may be wondering if the closet door is able to fully open with the dresser there and the answer is no, but I don’t need it to fully open. It opens wide enough and the extra storage was more important to me in that corner than fully opening the closet door that doesn’t need to be fully opened.
For the entry door, I went with the same #8 rosette unlacquered brass backplate with the Astoria knob.
I found a cheap Restoration Hardware glider on FB MP that I had reupholstered in this performance fabric by Calico. It was my first time having something reupholstered with them and I’m so pleased with the way it turned out. Bambino and I will be spending a lot of time in this comfy and stylish rocker!
Hollie of Stuck on Hue now has some of these adorable Radish Moon pillows stocked on her website in case you love this pattern as much as I do.
The scalloped ottoman was also generously gifted by Mainly Baskets Home. It’s so chic and I like how the shape adds a feminine touch to an otherwise masculine space.
THE CLOSET WALLPAPER
The Sandberg Raphael light blue wallpaper in the closet is my favorite part of the room. Unfortunately, the closet system I ordered didn’t come in time for the reveal, but I’ll share photos once everything is set up.
It really makes the closet feel like a hidden gem. I just love opening and closing the doors. Every single time it’s like… “surprise” lol
THE CRIB BEDDING
I plan to complete this needlepoint when I’m in *nesting* mode
Before (my office, which was a blast while it lasted):
I want to ake a moment to acknowledge the generous brands and small businesses who gifted/discounted items to make this nursery extra special. I really cannot thank them enough!
