It’s always a joy when a new baby arrives. Preparations have been made: baby clothes, plenty of diapers, and so many cute toys! But what about the nursery? Is it ready? A far more important question is, how to decorate the nursery if you don’t know the baby’s gender?
That was the challenge Lynne and Laura faced when designing a brand-new nursery for these first-time parents. “Our clients wanted the baby’s gender to be a surprise, but they still wanted to have the nursery ready for when the baby arrived” says Laura. In addition to keeping the nursery gender-neutral, their clients wanted the room to be a whimsical but sophisticated space, where the parents can enjoy spending time with their baby without feeling like they’re “in a daycare”.
To create this gender-neutral nursery, Lynne and Laura decided to go for a monochromatic color scheme using white, grey, and black. They chose a soft cloud pattern wallpaper on an accent wall to bring a whimsical factor into the room. White pom-pom window treatments soften the space, while a bold pattern black and white area rug adds some contrast and interest. They chose a modern industrial chandelier that mimics a hanging mobile to bring sophistication to the space. A rocking chair and a two-tone dresser on the other side of the room give much needed storage and seating. The cutest baby animals artwork greet the new baby each day.
“It definitely was a fun project!” says the Lawson Dream Team. The new baby is enjoying his new nursery. Yes… the baby is a boy!
