Designing the nursery for our little Milla was one of my favorite home projects so far. I wanted the bones of the room to be gender neutral, but I also wanted it to have a subtle touch of girly flair. The original wallpaper I chose ended up being out of stock, so I pivoted last minute and settled on a whimsical light blue wallpaper from House of Hackney. In order to make it a little sweeter, I painted the trim and ceiling a high gloss pink from Farrow & Ball. Paint is always an easy way to elevate design, and seamless to change in the future. If we happen to have a boy, I can absolutely change the paint in this room and keep the wallpaper.
Once I picked the wallpaper, I started working on the furniture and draperies. We opted for two Nash Swivel Gliders in Belgian Linen, Optic White so that my husband and I could both have a place to sit. The height of the arms on the Nash Swivel provide great support while feeding, and the easy-to-wash slipcover makes cleaning a breeze! We placed a pouf in between the two chairs and it couldn’t be more comfortable!
For the draperies and pouf I used a beautiful wool we sourced while in Germany. Hopefully we will be able to offer it at Coley Home soon! The draperies were made by a seamstress who lives in my Dad’s hometown. Don’t forget, our material shop is an incredible resource for high quality cut yardage at an affordable price.
Milla’s crib is one of my favorite pieces in the room! I had been eyeing the “invisible crib” made by a popular designer in the US, and ended up finding a similar version overseas. We are hoping to launch a small acrylic collection in the future! What do y’all think?
