Something must be in the water in Austin. I have five current clients that are pregnant right now. We just finished a lovely little nursery for a girl, a little boy’s room and a gender neutral nursery.
I am going to start the “Baby Boom” series with the boy’s room and in the coming weeks I hope to get some better photos of the other baby rooms.
This room used to be a nursery and was transformed into a ‘big boy room’ as the next kiddo in the family was on its way!
I just loved using navy blue and kelly green as a color combo for the room. It is so crisp and preppy!
The walls were painted pale gray (from beige), a much larger rug was added, and with the new layout we were able to include not only a play table area, but also a kids sized aviator chair.
A trundle bed is going to grow with this little guy for years to come (he is almost 3, now)! The chest will currently hold baskets of toys on the shelves (no messy room here) and a tall chest on the opposite wall will hold clothes (in addition to the walk in closet).
The little storage cubes were in the nursery before, we just re-upholstered them in an outdoor fabric from Trina Turk. The play table was custom painted by Austin artist, Leigh Watson of Watson Design.
Didn’t she do an awesome job of pulling in all the colors of the room and adding a bit of the animal print we wanted to see?
I also managed to pick up this very neat piece of original art. I had it framed in an inexpensive, ready made frame, to keep costs down.
On the opposite wall you can see there is still plenty of storage for a little boy in this little bedroom, as well as a wide open play space in the middle.
Little kids’ rooms are such a joy to design and furnish. If you need help designing a child’s room for your home, call us to find out about how our design services could work for you!
