A Red, White and Blue Debut

Ava's Red, White and Blue Nursery
Happy July 4th! I am so excited that we can post our newest installation that happens to be red, white and blue-themed!! This project was for my client's, Brian and Martha, and their new little girl Ava. 
The red damask fabric that you see on the curtains and bedding was our starting point for this room.  I decided that since it was such a mature pattern we needed to add some softer touches to make it more whimsical and "nursery" like. We added a small polka dot on the bumper and a soft minky chenille that I'm sure baby Ava is going to love to snuggle into.

We decided to root a busier curtain with a plain white valance, and added red accents and tiny white pom poms along the hem to make it more youthful. My clients and I thought it would be so fun to add a pop with an all red chair with contrasting sky blue piping.

The focal point of the room was the beautiful tree that Lauren painted for them.  I love the whimsical swirls and the simple white background. The crow in the tree is very meaningful to my client. It represents my client Martha's mom who passed away. She told Martha that she would always be watching over her after she passed and to Martha her reminder is a black crow. Lauren placed it in the tree overlooking the crib so she can "watch" over Ava when she is sleeping.

Over the chair, Lauren painted a canvas that acted as part decorative, part camouflage. There was an old tv outlet we need to cover and she came up with the perfect birdcage to help hide it!

  Martha and Brian's home was very contemporary so we added furniture that would match their style. Nurseryworks new Abbey crib was chosen with quatrefoil panels with contrasting white lacquer and dark wood frame. For a changing table we went with all drawers as Martha needed the storage room. The top of the changing table had compartments to keep her lotions and diapers organized for her.

 Special Thanks to Martha and Brian for choosing me to design their sweet nursery for Ava. I hope they have many happy memories in their nursery. It was a fun red, white and blue debut for our blog. Enjoy!!
