- Mid-Century Inspired Nursery -

After months of hunting for the perfect objects, art and furniture (and raising a newborn for the first time), I've finally got my nursery to a place where I can say I'm satisfied...at least for now.  As a designer I can say my interiors always evolve and change as I'm inspired and discovering new and intriguing ideas.  The balance between design and function becomes even more challenging after having a baby.  Hope you enjoy what I have pulled together, check back for Laura's fab nursery which we will be shooting soon!



I spent a lot of time shopping for a changing table and finally decided instead of purchasing a new piece of furniture I would re-purpose this great Danish sideboard that I already owned.  I designed a custom changing table tray that fits right on top of my vintage piece.  On the right there is an area where my changing pad fits and on the left there are three compartments for diapers, wipes and other baby must have's. 

As an artist I knew choosing just a couple pieces of art for my son's room would be too difficult so I decided on doing a collage of artwork above the changing table.  The ABC kid's poster from


can be found on


and the wonderful 

"Apple Papple"

poster is designed by Elizabeth Dunker and was purchased from the company we featured last week named 

Fine Little Day

.  The vintage needlepoint was a gift from my mother-in-law, which once hung in my husband's bedroom in the 70's...LOVE!  The fabulous felted animal head can be purchased through

With so many wall decals available out there I knew I wanted something subtle that I wouldn't get tired of.  This one is from


and they have an amazing assortment to choose from. 

With all the great books I have collected (vintage and new), I needed a place to display them where my son wouldn't manage to reach and ultimately tear or chew them to pieces.  These shelves worked perfectly!  I had mine custom-made to fit my space but you can find similar items through

Land of Nod

.  The

Oeuf Sparrow crib

is from


and the fitted sheet is from

Aunt Bucky
