Fabulous Room Friday 04.13.12

Pinned Image

This week’s “Fab Room” belongs to a lucky little lady—one month old Daphne whose stylish nursery was recently featured on Apartment Therapy. Clearly, Daphne’s mommy, Deirdre has a penchant for glamour. As much as I like sweet, baby-specific nurseries, I really love rooms like this one that are geared towards baby, but maintain a chic sensibility that lends itself to the child’s needs as he, or in this case, she grows up and are cohesive with the rest of the design aesthetic found throughout the home. The bassinet in the photo above may just be the most fabulous version I’ve seen and I love the mirrored and brass accents that add such glamour to the space. These items were originally part of the room when it housed Deirdre’s Hollywood Regency-inspired office, but they found their way into the new nursery design.

{To get the room ready for baby, Deirdre added crown moulding to the room, painted the walls a shade of cool aqua, and hit up Target just in time to score Missoni linens for the baby’s crib. She wanted something that wasn’t too girly, but featured bright colors and the Missoni for Target Collection was just the thing. The pattern play continues with the fantastic rug.}

{Deirdre scored the vintage chandelier at a tag sale for $20. After a coat of gold spray paint, it was ready for it’s close-up.}

What do you prefer when it comes to nursery design? Do you like sweet, baby-specific, traditional designs or do you like to mix things up?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Paloma - I love this nursery, it's one of my favorite things I had ever seen. When I first saw it, my mouth literally dropped. It's so Parisian chic!

Happy Weekend!

Loving this room- the color scheme is pretty grown-up, and I appreciate that. I don't like super-girly, and this could read as a boy or girl's room!

This is one glam nursery! We never had "kid" rooms growing up. My mom always kept them to her aesthetic so I've always known that I would have a non-baby nursery when I had kids.

I definitely fall into the camp that the nursery should not be overly baby or saccharine. My favorites are nurseries like this one, which incorporate furniture that might be used elsewhere in the home and color and pattern through art and accessories.

Amazeballs! I totally agree about not having anything too 'kid' specific. She can enjoy this room as is until college.

So adorable! I love the vintage pieces added to the Regency style, makes it feel more real, comfortable, eclectic! Gorgeous, thank you for featuring it, I hadn't seen this one!

I am sooo not a baby person, but I LOVE this room! I would have that chandy, the regency style dresser, and window treatments on my own room! Love!!!

What a great room! Daphne's going to be such a stylish little lady with a room like that. If you're looking for something that echoes the feel of this room, we have some great circus-themed fabrics on our site that I just love!
