Gorgeous Nursery

I came across this nursery the other day on Elements of Style and it was too good not to share.  Gorgeous and nursery aren't two words I typically associate with each other.  But this nursery is definitely gorgeous.  It is really a beautifully decorated room that happens to have a crib in it.

I don't usually pay attention to nurseries because it's not a room I frequently (or even hardly) think about.  But I have a little secret . . .  no, I'm not pregnant . . . I have a folder saved on my desktop where I save pictures of lovely nurseries I've seen.  There aren't too many of them in there, but this one definitely made the cut.


Hello fabulous rug.  Oh, abstract painting above the bed . . . don't mind if I do.  And aren't the dramatic dark gray walls totally unexpected, but amazing?! 


I love the simple roman shades and the couch.  I kind of want that couch for my office -- I'd even take the fun pillow fabric too!


This room is definitely inspiring.  Don't get me wrong, I love a good traditional nursery too, but this space is right up my alley.

  2. It's a very gorgeous room. I think it would work perfect for a multi-purpose room but strictly for a nursery it seems a little to 'adult'. In any case the room is still gorgeous.

  3. Beautiful room! This is a great design when needing a room to do double duty (office/nursery, guest room/nursery). I love the use of a sofa rather than another bed.

  6. I saw this on EOS too and I loved it! It blends sophistication and simplicity beautifully and gives those of us with small spaces ideas. That sofa looks easily convertible into a sofa bed for the occasional overnight sitter or house guests! I love it!

  7. Yeah, I pinned this immediately. Switch out that crib for a desk, its a nice office. I think the painting and that josef frank fabric are the two things that really make that space.

  8. Man, I thought you were going to say you were pregnant! :) That nursery is gorgeous. You don't see many grey walls in nurseries.

  11. Agree with all of your comments! I love how they set up the room with the crib to the side, and the comfy comfy couch in the middle...looks great. I also love your secret folder :) I'm going to go ahead and pins these though!

  13. Wow, this is a stunning nursery. It's so sophisticated yet it seems to work as a nursery just fine. Lucky baby!!

  14. Any room with a sweet baby in it is gorgeous! Gray would probably be pretty soothing for a baby since they really can't see that well at the beginning anyhow. I love the pops of color. I remember planning the nursery...sigh...
