Bright Bohemian Nursery



I posted the inspiration board for this nursery a while back (ok, more like waaay back in July) and some of you were curious about what happened since then. I'm just getting around to sorting through the photos of some of my more recent projects, so I thought now would be a good time to share it with you.

As you may remember, the space is small. It's actually a bedroom that the owners created by partitioning off a piece of their other daughter's bedroom. Hey, it's New York City, you do what you can do. Here is a floorplan of the space, created by Casa Kids, who created the beautiful millwork for the space:

This is a room where space planning really was key. One trick to dealing with a small space is to locate and highlight the room's strong points. Here, a 13' ceiling certainly stood out! To keep the space feeling as light and airy as possible, we went with a very bright white for the walls and trim. Although the space is punctuated by hits of color in the artwork and pillows, the majority of the color is concentrated on the ceiling.

And that stunning, lemon yellow chandelier? It was initially brass and something that the owner classified as "an expensive mistake". We all have them. Making lemonade out of lemons, we spray painted the fixture bright yellow, added some clear, round chandelier bulbs, and reattached the crystals for a touch of luxe. We all couldn't be happier with how the space turned out!

Here's a look at one of the inspiration boards we prepared for the client:

And some shots of the finished space. Enjoy!
