Designing a Nursery

Lilly Bunn Interiors via The Zhush

I want to say first off that I am not designing a nursery in case you went there.  Those days are over, and they were wonderful.  I love looking at nurseries and children's rooms.  Those rooms can be designed with less restraint, and they're often so much fun and appealing.  There's a feature in The Washington Post called House Calls.  In one article recently, decorators Lorin Jones and Janet Bertin help an Alexandria couple design a nursery.  They incorporated my pink pagoda prints as you can see below.   See the feature here.  I love the clean look they've put together and the way they've spread pink around the room with the lighting, art and fabric.

This is a photo a customer and designer emailed me of the nursery she designed for her daughter.  She purchased the prints above the crib from The Pink Pagoda.  I was thrilled to get this incredible photo.  I absolutely love what she did here.




If I had to go back in time and do my nursery again using one of the above, I don't know how I'd ever decide.  I've included so many different styles here, and I would be thrilled with any number of them.  What about you?  Which one do you prefer?

I would probably pick a combination of several rooms. I love how whimsical your prints look for a baby and sophisticated in an adult space.

I have to say, I love looking at all of these but none of them are for me. I tend to be really drawn to neutral nurseries. Maybe it's because I'm so stressed out at the thought of motherhood! I don't know...I love colors, but for some reason I am all about very muted nurseries.

Love the last two! Looks like those rooms could really "grow" with the baby:)

First I have to say that doing childrens rooms/nurseries are my favorite project to design, that and bathrooms, love to work on those projects. If I had to do a nursery choice out of all that are posted it would be CollectV for a boy and made by girl for a girl.
Love all of the images fun post. I have a pinboard exclusively for nurseries, I have been pinning away for a young friend who is expecting her first child. Love looking for ideas for her.

Your prints keep these nurseries a bit more sophisticated than the total baby look. I find that far more appealing and practical.
I missed that issue of House Calls. I grew up in Alexandria so I am off to read it.

love all these little nurseries and I totally agree a good pagoda print would look fab in any space. Start the babes out young with their style training!

I don't think I could pick just one either. Too bad I don't want 10 babies, because I could have so much fun doing nursery after nursery. :)
