For those of you who know me, you know that designing the nursery would for sure be a highlight for me when I got pregnant. And you were right. It has been so fun and a surprisingly refreshing creative outlet. My credit cards are loving it and, ahem, Rick isn’t. But, he’s been a gem and is allowing me to have some fun…this is the key to be happily married to me and he has mastered it. Kidding. Ha ha. No I’m not. I digress.
I went back and forth between a modern aesthetic (which is SO big right now with nurseries), something more classic or something more vintage. So many choices, so much cute stuff. It’s hard. For me, the deciding factor on the nursery theme was the furniture. That was the hub of my vision. After hours and hours of research and ideation, I landed with furniture from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child and I think their descriptions sum up where I netted out pretty well.
Bellina Dresser – We took the best features of our favorite French designs from the late 18th century and combined them to create this beautifully balanced composition. Raised molding and rosette carvings add a genteel air.
Grayson Crib – An antique inspired our substantial yet graceful iron crib. Expertly crafted, its nostalgic design features arched end panels, classic round spindles and decorative castings at each joint.
I love their designs so once I decided to invest in these pieces, the story began to unfold…here is a sneak peek of Baby Ueno’s Vintage French Nursery! All sources are noted below. Oooh la la!
