We’ve been so anxious to try out Beth’s fabulous Nursery Design in 3 Easy Steps, we’ve taken our Grand Finale Prize and created a beautiful nursery, applying the same 3 design principles! I think it looks pretty awesome…What do you think?
The Bonavita Harper Lifestyle Nursery Set has a beautiful and eloquent design, with sleek and smooth lines. I wanted to showcase a classy nursery, but include bold nuances that give it a little pop. Here’s how I used Beth’s nursery design tips to guide the creation of this nursery board:
1. Textiles: I decided a dark, navy blue color would have a nice contrast with the elegant Classic White baby furniture finish, but also wanted to pull in gold tones to give the nursery a rustic, metallic touch. Also incorporated woven, embroidered and faux silk/taffeta textures for a subtle, contrasted and sophisticated look. As for patterns, I love Greek Key Patterns as they give a modern and bold touch to the elegant theme.
2. Baby Furniture: The Bonavita Harper Lifestyle Nursery Set has a high, mantle-like backboard, with strong solid slats and modern-angled feet. It’s a sensual mixture of traditional and modern designs that make the heirloom quality baby furniture the star of the nursery. I love the fact that the award-winning Harper Lifestyle Crib can convert into a toddler bed, daybed and full-size bed, so the nursery set will last from infancy to adulthood. The Classic White color gives you the flexibility to change the room theme, color scheme and design to anything you like.
3. Accessories: I choose rustic, gold accessories such as the mirror, chandelier and table lamp to give the nursery a nice vintage effect. The woven poof and pillow have a beautiful natural look, with bold Greek Key Patterns for the pillows and rug, which carry throughout the theme of the nursery. Chose faux silk/taffeta navy blue curtains to keep the flow and elegance of the theme.
And voila! I hope the nursery inspiration in this Classy, Sleek Greek theme will help you create the nursery of your dreams. Just remember to visualize what you want, apply the big 3 design principles and be sure to incorporate simple contrasting ideas. But most importantly, have fun!
