In August I began working on a kids room design for my client who is expecting baby #2 in December.  She is a super hip art history professor at CCA and hired me by selecting one of my affordable nursery e-decoration packages.  My package allowed her to keep design fees low and focus her budget on incredible product!

From our first phone call, I could tell she had great taste and I was stoked to work on a project that would be fresh and fun!
The original room was already pretty cute but she wanted a new look for the new baby.  That's where I came in.

The scope:
Due to space limitations she needed to have her 2 year old son share a room with the new baby (a girl!).  My client wasn't loving the current stokke sleepi crib and wanted to re-select.  The toddler is still happy in a crib so she wanted to keep him in one {for now) and get a matching one for the baby.  The crib we select must transition into a stylish toddler bed also.
The style of the room will remain neutral with subtle pops of color.  We wanted this room to coordinate with the rest of the home and grow as the children grow.  Nothing too cutesy!

STEP ONE:
New Floorplan:
  ~  We managed to fit two cribs, a small dresser and an Eames Rocker.
 STEP TWO:
  ~ I developed a couple inspiration boards with various color schemes.
Coral, Grey & Yellow- a little more feminine.
Highlights:
Spot on Square crib
Calypso Barth throw
Blu Dot dresser
Arc Lamp

My favorite, Yellow and Grey- of course!
Highlights:
Oeuf Crib, Classic
Anthropologie Rug
Oilo Baby Bedding
Etsy pillow
Custom drape

  ~ I researched modern cribs galore here.

  ~ We honed in on a fabric for the drapes.
ROMO- Quintus, color: Lagoon
The drape fabric changed the color direction and once we locked this down, everything really starting falling into place.  With our neutral greys, white, green, we added turquoise!
This is where we are now!             {I hope to see it all complete mid-November!}
Highlights:
Ouef Sparrow crib in walnut
White expedit Ikea dresser- saved some $$ here.
Jonathan Adler tray
Ceramic Lamp
Serena & Lily elephant bookends
& art from Etsy, as seen here.
Elephant mobile in grey
Squirrel hand-stitched pillow
Eames Rocker- DWR
Throw blanket- Coyuchi
Bumper- TBD!  Why is it Impossible to find a nice, textured organic WHITE bumper?!
