My best friend is due with her first baby in August.
She doesn't find out what she's having for another month
but that doesn't stop us from getting started on the
nursery design process.
She lives in this great little apartment outside San Francisco
and the baby's room has these floor to ceiling windows
which are amazing! Unfortunately it's a rental so paint
isn't really an option, so I decided to design with some bold
colors for the furniture and accessories so it livens up the space.
Here are the inspiration boards I designed for her:
Bright, fun, playful, and a little bit whimsy with the
owl details and the banner.
And for the boy:
I went with a natural and woodsy feel, but also a
bit of whimsy with the cardboard deer head.
The vinyl "forrest" is also a great alternative to paint.
Inspiration boards are a great way to put ideas together
before buying items for a space. If they don't look good
next to each other on the computer screen then they won't
work together in a room.
I can't wait to find out what she's having so
the shopping can begin!
