The flowing copper illustration of fish and other deep sea creatures appealed to designer Keita Turner's clients in Brooklyn, N.Y., for their son’s nursery because of the pattern’s fun, whimsical and modern style. The Underwater World wallpaper is by Pattern People and from Hygge & West.
Since the "big boy" bedroom and nursery were adjoining, designers had to create spaces that would complement each other as well as be sophisticated enough to grow with the boys as they get older, so they created a "dipped" effect that made for the perfect backdrop for the Astronaut Big Boy Room and the Whale of a Tale Nursery.
Horseshoes, saddles and cowboy attire decorate this transitional boy's nursery. Traditional white furnishings keep the space from feeling too dark and overly masculine. Designed by Emily Mackie of Inspired Interiors.
Designer Gail Fedela creates a girly nursery for her daughter with a clean white color palette and touches of pink. The classic crib is highlighted by baby animal artwork above and a striped glider next to the window is the perfect spot to rock sweet baby to sleep.
Designers chose an earth-toned palette to make this nursery Serenity Central. The walls are covered with grasscloth wallpaper in a handsome brown. Baskets and sheepskin rugs layer in more inviting textures.
This dark gray living room is perfect for entertaining. Designed with Art Deco influences, it features a brown sofa with nailhead trim, a stylish end table, a metal coffee table, hardwood flooring, and a wooden console table that supports a big-screen television. The room also features a large picture window and a black baby grand piano.
The hallway that enters this nursery is not exempt from the elegant design. A flat light fixture is used in this space to minimize the effect of the low ceiling and allow for plenty of room to open the closet doors. A hop scotch rug leading from the heart of the nursery to the door adds a fun little touch to this space.
To add a little bit of color to this edgy, black and white nursery designers added a mint colored pillow, throw and ottoman. This splash of color helps to soften this modern space and brings warmth to the design.
