My Favorite Room: Camille Styles

Camille Styles NurseryGreetings, LDV friends! Camille Styles here, feeling a little sentimental as I share my very favorite room in our home. My daughter Phoebe turns 6 months this week, and it seems like yesterday that I was pregnant and carefully planning every detail of her nursery. I wanted to make it a peaceful sanctuary where we could both escape from the rest of the world to read, play - and hopefully one that would encourage long sleep-filled nights! Since the rest of our house is pretty neutral in shades of taupe, cream and chocolate, I wanted her room to feel like an extension, albeit one with some playful, whimsical details. Many of the pieces are from Serena & Lily, including her soft flokati rug, bohemian-style chandelier and classic glider where we spend lots of time, and I tried to bring in lots of rich texture to warm up the minimal palette. Take a peek inside my inspiration-gathering process here.

When Phoebe's a little older, I think it'll transition great to a little armoire for storing clothes and toys.Camille Styles Nursery Camille Styles NurseryWe filled her bookshelf with lots of editions of childhood favorites (love the penguin classics illustrated by coralie bickford-smith), as well as a handful of family photos and several baskets for hiding toys. Camille Styles NurseryI'm so thrilled with how the room came together, and I know it won't be long until Phoebe is crawling all over the rug and pulling toys off the shelves. I know it's going to fly by way too quickly...but I love that when we're in this peaceful, quiet room, time seems to stand still.
