Oct02 Designer Nursery 2013
Fab Designer Amy Elbaum sent us this gorgeous nursery she recently completed for a client in New York’s Upper East Side. Here she is:
For this job, the client was really enamored by the look of an “all white” nursery. She wanted it to be clean and cozy but also unique and special. The client loves wallpaper (as do I – obsessed) and the decision to put it on the ceiling came about in an interesting way. We were concerned that having wallpaper on the walls would make it difficult to clean up or hide any marks made by Arden (the baby) as she grows up because it would require the wallpaper to be replaced. We decided to put the wallpaper on the ceiling and paint the walls so that it would be super easy to touch them up if anything were to happen. As an added bonus, Arden LOVES looking up at the patterned ceiling when she is in her room – it is definitely something that interests her!
The room also needed more storage (it is Manhattan after all) so we added some cabinets and exposed shelves around the radiator, which in turn provided a window seat for reading or relaxing. The furniture is from RH Baby & Child and the crib turns into a toddler bed so it is something they can use for years to come. The final touches were a soft sheepskin rug and some knit pillows to soften up the space and crystal knobs and a gold starburst mirror to add some glam!
In my work it is very important to me that my design works fluidly with the clients needs for the space. No matter how pretty a room is, it must always be functional!
