A few weeks ago, I created an e-design board for a reader who is expecting her first little one! She's since learned that she is having a little girl (congrats, Jean!) but her goal was to create a gender neutral space for her little bambino. She also had many items that she already owned or had passed down to her that she wanted to keep in the space, including an oak crib, a cross-stitched art piece and a set of blue + green fabrics. Want to see what I came up with?
Luckily, the pieces she already had (including the fabric in the top right corner, which she plans to use to make bedding for the crib) were great. I balanced the oak of the crib with several white pieces of furniture, including this precious Jenny Lind bookshelf, a white dresser/changing table and even a two-toned contemporary side table that included both white and oak.
I also incorporated a giraffe + birds theme lightly throughout the space, which adds a fun whimsical touch. Perfect for a sweet little nursery like this!
Overall, I think my client really liked the design and I'm hoping her little girl will too!
