This might be a bold statement, but when it comes to interior design, nurseries are my favourite. There. I said it! But truly – the amount of love, care and attention to detail that is placed within this type of space is always immediately apparent. And this nursery, designed by Christina Loucks for her adorable little girl (side note, can we focus on those cheeks for a second? I just can’t handle the cute!), is no exception. Catch the rest of the tour, captured by Amber Fouts, right here in the gallery.
From Christina… I have an affinity for neutral colors, open spaces, natural finishes and mid-century modern style. I wanted this space to feel like a breath of fresh air, be cozy, peaceful and uncluttered. A space that could grow with Mila, as well as become an extension of our home.
While designing her nursery, we weren’t sure whether or not we were having a little girl or boy, so the base of the space remained neutral. We started with a soothing wall colour, with a chalkboard wall as an accent. Right now, it’s fun for us but sooner than later it will be fun for her too! Lucky for us, our entire home has the original hardwood floors in great condition, and Milas room has huge windows and is constantly flooded with gorgeous natural light.
Using framed momentos, like my silver Tiffany’s teething ring from when I was a baby, a NYC cityscape poster, the city in which her father and I are originally from, and her first necklace, really add that necessary personal touch. I love the look of the open shelving to display books and lovely gifts. And I’m thrilled that books turned out to be one of her favorite things.
Once she was born and we finally discovered that she really was a she, we made sure to add some girly touches. The peach felt mobile came from an Etsy shop and I am so obsessed with it. It rains gold raindrops over her head while she sleeps, and tosses light back and forth throughout her space.
I made sure to position the glider across from the windows so I can gaze at the treetops while I rock my sweet baby. It’s definitely become a magical little room for me as well.
