Layers of patterns in shades of purple from the mirror down to the rug give this nursery a luxurious feel. A large dresser conveniently doubles as a changing table with the easy addition of a changing pad.
In the nursery, an orange changing table, blue changing pad and yellow sconces add colorful contrast to the neutral wall color, while a mirror shaped like sunglasses adds to the feel of adventure in this bold, colorful nursery.
By simply changing the millwork, this entry and stair space got a huge refresh. Shiplap walls greet visitors to an immediate ‘by the water’ feel. That combined with the watery painting featuring bold turquoises and greens (that reminded designers of lily pads) drives home the coastal feel. A LED light in the glass ball on the newel post is set to a photocell - so it comes on each night when it gets dark!
For a home set within an ancient woodland and heath in the New Forest National Park, designer Wendy Perring of PAD Studio took care to maximize the connection between the home and its surroundings, while minimizing the impact of the structure on the site. “The main living space is open-plan and designed to cater not just for the changing physical needs of its occupants but to provide nourishment and stimulus to the soul through close contact with the home’s natural setting,” says Perring.
Start with a 120-grit pad on your sander; if it doesn’t get through the grayed surface of the wood immediately, change to 80. 80 grit will sand off a lot of material, so err on the safer side and start with 120. Make sure to sand with the grain as best you can. Once you have finished sanding all surfaces, wipe the piece clean with a damp cloth to get all of the dust off.
