Design Inspiration: Chloe’s Big Girl Room by Winter*Daisy

Perhaps you’re searching for some inspiration for your little darling’s ‘big girl’ room? This can be a tricky task as you move from sweet nursery into a territory that you may not be sure how to navigate! One of Rosenberry Rooms’ favorite designers – Melissa of Winter*Daisy – has created the perfect whimsical haven for one lucky girl named Chloe.

The room is the perfect harmony between modern and girly, with the gold accents balancing out the soft lavender walls and patchwork style quilt.

The addition of the tent in the reading nook gives Chloe the perfect place to sit with friends and debrief on the day’s events at school, or curl up on a rainy day with a book on the sheepskin rug.

It can be difficult to know how to decorate bare walls without going overboard, however Melissa has achieved this seamlessly! The gold decals used for one of the accent walls have been framed and utilized as artwork to bring the theme together.

The Chloe print next to the bed allows this little girl to feel that this is her big girl space, and it looks adorable and highlights the mauve wall. By painting the recessed wall over the bed a different color, it eliminates the need for a tall headboard and allows for endless decorating possibilities for above your child’s bed.

The design of this room works so well because it allows Chloe a bright and soft space to grow in and explore, without sacrificing any of the wonder or whimsy of the carefully curated nursery that she is transitioning out of.

Nursery Design Tips from Tori Swaim:
How to Design Your Dream Nursery

We are excited to share some nursery design tips from Tori Swaim! Tori is a mom of three, designer and the brilliant mind behind New Arrivals Inc. Tori has tons of experience designing spaces for little ones, and she has shared some ideas to help you get inspired.

There are so many online resources for nursery design inspiration right at your finger tips! Some of my favorites include Houzz, Pinterest and Decorpad. Design blogs are also a great resource for gathering ideas. Deciding on your favorite colors and patterns will help you get started on creating your dream nursery! A good starting point for your nursery design is the baby bedding.

Bedding

Start by visiting a fabric store and gathering swatches of your favorite fabrics. Separate your swatches into color groups. Spend some time playing around with different color combinations and throw in fun patterns as well. You can also create a mood board by searching for colors samples and patterns online.

swatch and accessories collage

Next, decide which group has your favorite colors and patterns. Think about whether or not these fabrics will coordinate well with other items you have in mind for your room (furniture, lighting, decor, ect). Choose one main patterned fabric and then coordinate basic patterns around it. Decide where you will use the main fabric. Usually the main fabric will be used on the crib skirt or crib bumper. Coordinating basics are perfect for the sheet and changing pad cover. The main fabric is also good for curtain panels and throw pillows. Mixing and matching patterns and colors will create visual interest.

After you’ve decided on colors and patterns for your crib bedding, it’s time to select paint and coordinating decor. Pull together a few paint samples and match them to your bedding fabrics. It’s also a good idea to take paint samples and fabric swatches with you when shopping for other nursery items. This will help you visualize how items will look once they are all in the room together.

Non-toxic paint is great for nurseries

Designing a nursery can be overwhelming.  Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to decide on colors, fabrics, furniture and room decor. It’s never too early to start coming up with ideas and getting inspiration. Pinterest is a great starting point and a great way to keep your ideas organized.

Whatever you do, design a nursery that makes you smile.  After all, you will be spending a lot of time there once your little one arrives!

Modern Marsala Nursery

color-of-the-year-2015Who says Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala, isn’t a good fit for the nursery? This red-brown hue may seem like an unconventional choice, but that’s why we love it!

Try mixing it into a modern-and-minimal, black-and-white nursery design for a totally unique look! This color scheme can work for both a boy or a girl and provides just enough edginess while still being fun, bold and playful.

Hudson's Toddler Room!

We have an amazing toddler boy’s room to share with you today! Melissa from Winter*Daisy shared with us one of her latest room designs – Hudson’s toddler room!

The colors are soft, but the room does not lack in visual interest! Melissa mixed monochromatic prints and textures with bright white and natural wood tones that give a very serene feel, and she used the cutest modern elephant decor throughout the room. It is also very functional with shelving and storage bins to hold books, toys and more!room bed view toddler bed dresser elephantreading-corner star-cushions wall-mobile

Carolyne's Coral & Gold Nursery

Carolyne Nell – named after her two late great grandmothers – was born July 28, 2014. We spotted her gorgeous room on Project Nursery and just had to share it! Mom Amy gave us a little insight into her inspiration for baby Carolyne’s nursery, as well as the challenges of becoming a mom of two!

I decided to go very “girly” for her nursery and came up with the idea of doing a focal wall of glitter. I found some AMAZING wallpaper and fell in love with it, so I centered everything else around that! I loved the way the coral and aqua accents complemented the gold.

Carolyne is the baby sister to big brother Tripp (3 years old). He’s obsessed with her and loves “helping” take care of her and giving her kisses!

It’s been pretty challenging making the adjustment from one child to two – especially with stubborn big brother in the midst of potty training and tantrums! I knew it would be hard getting used to two kids, but it’s definitely proven to be quite the adjustment! Giving both of them my attention is tough, but I’ve really tried to make the effort so he doesn’t have crazy jealousy issues! We actually have a “big brother box” full of cheap toys, coloring books, etc (Target and Walmart dollar aisles are the greatest!) that he gets to choose something out of when he’s being a “big helper” and/or someone comes to meet her and brings her a gift (so he doesn’t feel left out or jealous). But, with all of that being said, nothing is more rewarding than being a parent and watching your babies grow up before your eyes! It’s truly amazing (and kinda devastating) how quickly they grow and change!
