What is your favorite item from the project?

I’m obsessed with the vintage Lane Furniture credenza we utilized as a changing table. Why? I love that this classic piece can transition to nearly any space in their home.  

What was your theme or vision for this design?

I wanted to create a gender neutral and calming space for this young family.  I also wanted to be sure that we included elements that would be functional as the baby grows older. For example, the reading wall will come in handy for years to come.

Did you do any DIY projects in the client’s home?

 We had a custom wall stripe added to the largest wall. A simple wall stripe is an easy, high impact and budget-friendly way to add visual interest in a kid space.

What are some uniquely southern items included in this room?

Drapes are a must in almost all of my projects and a nursery is no exception.  They add softness to the walls and they’re also a great opportunity to inject a good dose of color and/or pattern. To make things a bit more youthful, we added a purple pom-pom trim to the gray and white patterned panels.  

Did you utilize local furniture brands?

Almost all of my projects include a reinvented furniture piece. In this case it was the wingback rocking chair.  I knew we need a rocker or glider but wasn’t thrilled about the options available within the project’s budget.  I relied on my upholsterer to help reinvent a vintage rocker I picked up at one of our local Habitat ReStores.  The addition of a water resistant fresh green fabric with a contrasting purple cording was the perfect combo of form and function.

What is fun about doing a nursery?

There’s something very sweet about creating a little person’s very first living space.  I love on the little details that make kid spaces particularly fun.  

Where did you get your inspiration for this room?

The color scheme was born from a beautifully designed living room space I pinned on Houzz.  I fell in love with the lavender and soft green with a tiny touch of Hermes orange.

What are some of your favorite designers for a child’s room?

I’m a big fan of Traci Zeller’s kid spaces. She’s a mom to twin boys and seems to have a knack for creating stunning and functional kid spaces.  She also has a line of beautiful fabrics perfect for light hearted kid’s rooms.  

What were some personal touches you added for the client?

The client really wanted to include a space for books.  We added the acrylic wall shelves and a bench beneath that will soon be the perfect spot to read to the little one.

What advice do you have for southern rooms on decorating their nursery?

Think about how the color scheme, theme and elements you select will work 1, 2, or 3 years from now.  It’s important that you invest in pieces that will transition with your child.

What are the top 3 items every nursery should have?

A crib, a rocker and a changing table (but be open to out of the box options here).

What was the best part  about your client’s reaction to the final project?

 I love to see my client’s faces light up during the reveal.  It’s as if they never could’ve imagined the space looking the way it does at that moment.  I know I’ve done a good job when they’re then ready to hire me for their next design project.
