Surely it won't surprise anyone to hear that I have been planning my child's nursery since Lula was only a twinkle in my eye which, of course, made it nearly impossible to narrow down the possibilities once it finally came time to pull it all together. The main priorities were clearly color + pattern ... and functionality + storage were somewhere up there too, I suppose. My goal was for this space to be a happy place that appeared to have been curated over time rather than come straight from the box. This meant shopping vintage for some pieces (i.e. the dresser & rattan changing table) while incorporating new items with clean, modern lines (i.e. the crib & minty green bookshelves).
While I had a head full of ideas, I knew I wanted my trusted / uber-talented pal Dorothy Shain to weigh in on the design process. After a couple brainstorm parties, Dorothy created a custom pattern that is both bold and feminine to cover Lula's walls (email firstname.lastname@example.org for deets and ordering info!). I was asked approximately 25x a day whether her nursery was yellow, so I like that the wallpaper brings in an unexpected color and love the balance it creates with the graphic jute rug. With that being said, you know I couldn't leave out my one, true color crush -- enter the yellow closet and yellow accents scattered throughout the space.
