In Chris' bedroom, a mix of high and low created his designer bed ensemble. A custom bed upholstered in automotive vinyl was the area's biggest purchase; however, deceptively budget-friendly purchases were made for the remainder of the space. The demilune-shaped chests came from ZGallerie for $600 each, and not only do they add an elegant touch, they offer concealed storage. Table lamps atop the chests were found at a flea market and updated with red paint and new metallic drum shades. While Ralph Lauren bedding in a classic paisley print was a splurge, custom pillows made from $6.99 per yard IKEA tartan fabric kept the budget in check. To allow Chris to easily change up the looks of his bedding, the backs of each pillow were covered in a nautical print from Duralee.
To save room in this multi-functional nursery space, designers removed the door from the closet in the room and installed a changing table equipped with all the essentials. This clever idea keeps clothes, diapers and blankets close at hand. As the baby grows and the changing table is no longer needed, it can be removed from the space and it can function as a big kid's closet.
Instead of adding a basic changing table to the room, the couple used a lacquered faux-bamboo chest. The interior conceals all the baby changing necessities, and the top can easily swap identities from baby changing table to sophisticated console by removing the cushion from the top and outfitting it with personal keepsakes and a reading lamp.
When the green and white safari wallpaper was unavailable at time of order, Jenn Feldman Designs went to Astek Wallcoverings and created a new and more unique design, bringing in even more of the family's love of dogs.
A nautical-themed mural is the focus of this nursery. To ensure such a detailed feature was not covered up by bulky furniture, the bottom of the mural's subject sits even with the top of the changing table.
Color was brought into this gender-neutral nursery via accessories and plants. The wood dresser has a mid-century modern influence that pairs well with the room's blend of farmhouse and contemporary elements.
Large custom wall art with local flavor by artist Celery Jones sits over a leather bench that provides an easy way to change shoes or casually store a handbag or hat. “I love the look of those older homes on the flat lands of Texas,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. “Celery captures that moment perfectly.”
Create more space in the baby’s room by tucking all your nursery needs in the closet. Lisa Janvrin, owner of YouthfulNest, designed this adorable space that includes changing table and drawers for baby supplies. The clothing rack above the changing table is all you need for wee little wardrobe.
A distressed gray dresser doubles as a changing station in this elegant girl's nursery. Floating white shelves house stuffed animals and children's books. A pretty pink throw pillow adds a touch of color to the striped glider.
