Oh Baby: Bijou & Boheme’s Nursery

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Is this not the most elegant and gorgeous nursery you’ve ever seen? Created by the amazing Christine Dovey (the blogger behind the  Bijou & Boheme, a favorite of mine) for her newest bundle of joy Jasper.  I’ve been following the process on her envy-inducing Instagram feed and love seeing it in full now in Style At Home!


GAH!!!! Can I have a room like this???? You can search for those Serge Mouille sconces on 1st Dibs.



So very serene. I just love it. Kids room usually have so much color but doesn’t this seem so soothing for a baby?


Here’s some picks for a similar nursery look:

Runway to Room: A Fashionable Nursery!

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I saw this pairing of stripes and a bold floral print on Blair of Atlantic Pacific and thought it would make the most BAD ASS girl’s nursery! Blue isn’t just for the boys, and this little room is full of attitude, pattern and color! And how I LOVE some abstract art in a child’s space (you could give your own child a canvas and some paint and even let THEM do the work!)

A Baby Boy Nursery…(for Erika)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

My bestest friend from college gave birth yesterday, on LEAP DAY, to a gorgeous baby boy.  It is so strange and yet wonderful when people you’ve known for so long become a mother.  I am over the moon for her and her husband and so in honor of their new arrival I put together a delicious baby boy nursery that has no cartoons, babyish stuff or the like, because these two are such stylish parents who would never allow such things in their cool new home :) .  And seeing as they have a strong connection to the Cape, I went with an ocean theme. I had to use Kelly Wearstler’s amazing new fabrics (I picture the ikat being the crib skirt, the stripe velvet being a ridiculously luscious bumper and the sea urchin for a pillow on the rocker).  The dresser image I found on Pinterest (see the tutorial HERE) and am obsessed with the way it was painted, allowing the wood to be the background for the ship.  An overdye patchwork rug from Nomadic Trading makes for an interesting ground too.  The photograph is a large scale by Mary Ellen Bartley (you may recognize the style from my project sneak peek).

I attempted this in Olioboard and had one HELL of time using it (slow internet? maybe I need a mouse?), but since my Photoshop has disappeared and I am having trouble pulling the trigger on the $600 new version, it will have to do for now!

Wishing E+L+J so much love, luck and sweet new baby moments….

Amazing Reader Nursery- Now With Sources!

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Yesterday a wonderful reader wrote me to share pictures of her Beacon Hill nursery with me since she said reading the blog inspired her in decorating it. How fabulous is it? Loving the wall color (she said it’s a Ben Moore Aura copy f Farrow and Ball’s Down Pipe, one of my faves).  Adore the non-babyish color combo and the bookshelves framing the crib to create a “built-in” look.  And of course, the Weinrib is divine.  I love seeing how the blog inspires all of you to decorate!

She was generous enough to e-mail me all the sources! And what a crafty woman she is!!!

Here are the details….the rug is Madeline Weinrib:

I justified spending $1100 on it by getting this crib:

Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the artist – it’s unsigned.  My mom found the painting at a flea market – and it was only $35.  I love it and it was the foundation of the whole room.  I would love to find out who did it so I could get more from them – the colors are so so happy!

The book cases were just a pair from the unfinished furniture store that we nailed moldings onto and painted white:

The crib sheet came from Target:

The bumper I had made out of some Brunschwig fabric I picked up at a sample sale.  The pattern is called La Pluie.  I had the pillows on the couch made from the same material.

And the crib skirt and pillow are made from some Josef Frank fabric.  It was SO expensive and it killed me to buy it but I fell in love with it after seeing similar fabrics in nurseries by Katie Ridder and Jeffrey Bilhuber.  I decided to make a little bit go a long way by using it as the crib skirt and the pillow (2 yards total).  You can get it in New York but my sister happened to be going to Sweden on vacation and I got her to pick it up for me sightly cheaper.

I used Erika’s crib skirt design to make sure we could use it even as we dropped the crib:

I think you’ll notice the little Ikea lambskin.  I got that idea straight from you – I remember you saying something about how much babies love these and you’re absolutely right!
