There’s a new trend in nurseries and it has less to do with baby-centric pinks and blues and more with a gorgeously styled space. The kind that works for both the babes and the adults. Emily Maynard and her cute little bundle Gibson are joining that non-traditional yet totally design savvy crowd with this classic black and white space. It boasts hints of gold, killer art and super stylish pieces from Oilo Studio. See even more shot by Allison Kuhn in the VAULT.
I was introduced to Annalisa from Oilo through a friend and after many phone calls and emails back and forth, I feel like she translated all the craziness going on inside my head into the most perfect nursery for Gibson.
I told her I like color and all white. I told her I like wood cribs, but also love metal cribs. Love wallpaper, but also love paint. Basically, she’s an angel and I’m a nightmare client. I know it’s not the traditional “baby nursery” but I knew I wanted something that I hadn’t seen on Pinterest a million times already.
Since Tyler and I decided not to find out the gender of the baby, we decided on a simple color scheme of black and white with hints of gold, instead of the traditional pink or blue.
I absolutely love how the frame from the painting matches the gold on the two dressers we put together to make the changing table. My favorite piece in the room has to be the glider though!
You may think I’m crazy for having a white chair anywhere in my house with 2 boys and a house full of animals, but since it’s leather, it’s totally wipeable. Not to mention, it’s super comfortable for all of the middle of the night feedings!
In the end, the room we came up with is the calmest room in my entire house and goodness knows I need all the calm I can get these days!
