Pulling off a Modern, Gender Neutral Nursery for Twins

This twin fantasy land designed by Amelia Canham Eaton is a modern space filled with bold touches (lucite and a striking black and white + gold palette just to name a few) making it a nursery to be envious of. And let me just tell you, planning space for double the cribs is no easy feat but this room makes it look gorgeous. Have a look at more of the space captured by Hallie Duesenberg in the VAULT.
My client and friend Abby was expecting identical twins, but not finding out the sex of the babies so the initial design concept was a bold, gender neutral, black and white nursery. At 30 weeks pregnant, just as we were having the room painted, Abby gave birth to two beautiful baby girls. The girls were healthy but had to spend a couple months in the NICU which gave me just enough time to prepare the nursery for their arrival home.

Even though I ended up knowing the room was intended for two sweet girls, we decided to stick to our initial black and white theme while adding a soft feather fixture as a subtle feminine touch. The illusion of a chair rail, created with just paint, and the bold black doors are some of my favorite features. The rug and marque letters feel whimsical, while the curtains and light fixture soften things making it the perfect place for Abby to bring her sweet baby girls home.
