Wednesday’s Wink … { adding L.O.V.E to a nursery }

What are your plans for V-day? I believe every day (and every room!) should be filled with love – physically (with visual accessories – like the LOVE print below that I am adjusting on the wall below) and spiritually (filled with kindness and compassion). I aim to fill every day with love, and V-day to me is my eat-as-many-chocolate-goodies as I can day (with no guilt! .. haha). Below are pics from a design installation for my client Michael and his baby boy Jacob:

This nursery was already decorated by the owner and a previous decorator, but I was invited to make it look and feel more cozy and complete, so a few things that we did/added was …. relocating the bookshelf (for comfort) and added artwork with a POP of color to tone down all the busy colors from the books, also added the cloud decals so the walls didn’t look/feel so empty:

The palm tree artpieces were scattered, so we aligned them for a sleek look (in a room that already has lots of toys scattered, it is important to have artwork feel more calm and not add more visual clutter … hence the straight line mounting of the artwork .. plus .. the artwork mounted side to side ‘tell a story’ vs having to go from wall to wall to review all of them). We also added the L.O.V.E. pillow and the cutie-pie apple face ….. why? … bec without them, the loveseat looks a bit bland (boringzzz).

We also added the green-stripe floorlamps … for visual height and functionality (let there be more light to play!!!). This is me below almost falling off the ladder, which gave me a case of the giggles:

In this nursery room, we added decals, from a monkey-ing around design (click here for more pics of that fun installation), BUT I also showed the client how we can add the decals that came with the monkey/trees around the room in unexpected area, such as (1) leaves hanging from the wall shelves and (2) leaves surrounding a light switch:

They are subtle peek-a-boos of the design:

The blue chair that my client has in the room seemed to disappear against the blue walls, so we added an oooh sooo cute pillow of a little boy holding a truck. Did you see how the yellow/blonde hair of the boy matched the yellow color of the LOVE art … yep, all ‘designed that way':

Here’s a quick overview of the design showing the monkey-ing around decal:
Another pillow that would had looked lovely is one of our ‘pocket of love‘ shop ones (which was not available at the time of the design installation), but they are now (yeahhh) in case you want to buy one for one of your rooms:

Have a beautiful day!!!!

    Sometimes all a room needs is that final touch to pull it all together. Good thing you were available because the room does look cozier and more pulled together. Another job well done.

    Thanks Ada. Jacob loves his new nursery. You did a great job! He got really big since the last time you saw him. He’s walking all over the place. Thanks for sharing my nursery.
