striped nursery is finished!

some of you might remember this ceiling that i painted a few months ago. i painted white and yellow stripes on the ceiling, and i painted the dresser in a dark blue-black with thin white stripes. well, the nursery is finished, so my client let me come back and snap some official "After" photos. can i just say I. LOVE. THIS. NURSERY. i have a feeling you guys will, too...

ultimate cuteness. they aren't going to find out the gender of the baby, and i think she did such a fun job using neutral colors! love, love, love. check out the curtains! and what about that awesome light fixture?

the other side of the room, which shows the dresser! don't you love those shiny pulls? i don't know where she got them, but i love them. i also adore the way she has the curtains tied back with the rope and silver ring pulls!


the dresser was a piece that was my client's dad's when he was younger (so it's the future baby's grandpa's! awww). this is what it looked like before i painted it:

and, after! (sorry for the crazy-lit photos! my camera kind of stinks sometimes!)

how cute is the elephant artwork? i love all the furry friends in this room! really also love the 'rough' elements like the rope and the wooden surface that the elephant is painted on. there is also a lucite shelf hanging above the dresser that adds such a sleek, modern feel, as well. texture galore.



what a lucky baby.

  3. What a fabulous gender neutral room. It doesn't scream "nursery either". With a few changes, this room will work for years for the baby as he/she grows up.

  7. You did a GREAT job, and I agree the rough textures of the rope and the elephant artwork go perfectly with the sleek charcoal knobs and sunny ceiling!

  12. Great room. Did you buy the handles? I have a cabinet with awful handles that when you take them out leave a big hole. I want your handles - I am drooling over them. Please help

  15. I LOVE this nursery! Dont know if you had an inspiration photo when you started out but I actually have an old Domino magazine(November 2008) with a nursery that has alot of the same elements...yellow/white striped ceiling, blue/black dresser with thin white stripes, white ceiling light fixture, white slat crib.But I like yours better b/c the one in the catalog doesnt look finished(no window treatments,etc...)!:)

  18. Tried to find out if you revealed where the dresser hardware came from but couldn't find it. Can I ask where you got it from?
    Thanks and fantastic job!
