pink & yellow nursery.

hope everyone is having a great (short) week so far...

i cannot wait to show you guys the outcome of this pink & yellow nursery - it is my new favorite! the little lady that will get to live in here (when she makes her grand arrival) has a mom with fabulous taste (i always know it's going to be a wonderful working relationship when at the first client meeting we discuss mutual love for my boyfriend, jonathan adler ;) ).

anyway, this baby nursery is off to a great start, with beautiful serena & lily bedding, an awesome madeline weinrib rug, and chic greek-key-trimmed curtains...but i came in to add some fun to the walls...

here is the "before" shot:


this is my stencil-making setup:

(and sorry friends, can't tell you how to make a stencil for yourself, because a) it's actually really complicated, and i probably couldn't even explain it! and, b) i can't give away all my secrets, hehe) let's just say it involves a lot of measuring and weird techniques that took me a while to figure out!

here is one of the shapes, traced on the wall!


i'll be back tomorrow with the final "after" shot!


  1. secrets smmmeeecrets!!

    BUT, business secrets are similar to intelectual property so THEY are special and must be protected. :)
    I guess everyone will let you slide this time.
    looking forward to seeing the walls completed

  2. oh pink and yellow i adore it! i've been saving some inspiration for if and when we have another baby girl, i'd love to do her nursery in pink & yellow! i can't wait to see what you come up with!!

  3. Cannot wait to see it. I'm stenciling my master bedroom wall this weekend...ahhh!

  4. i am dying to see it! the architecture in that nursery is AMAZING.

  5. I used to cut stencils for hours on end for an artist. I won't give away the technique, but let me agree with you, it is very complicated.
