Quintel Noel — a Home Stylist in our Charlotte, North Carolina store — recently completed a project where she was able to assist an expectant mother to express her love of color and pattern in a cheerful new nursery…
My client Gaby is a graphic designer and asked me to assist her in creating a nursery for her soon-to-be-born baby girl. Gaby relocated to the states from Mexico and really wanted to express the influence of her culture which deeply embraces bright colors and layering patterns. We both wanted to do something chic with a touch of boho and whimsy that also spoke to her love of animals.
There were a few pieces from her first home that we decided to incorporate into the nursery — Ikat Links Rug, Silk Paisley Window Panels and a Metal-Wrapped Side Table.
We used frames above the crib to create a focal point and feature Gaby’s own artwork. The color palette was inspired by a colorful Dr. Seuss book cover and the subtle shades of blue-grays are a perfect background for the bright pops of pink and orange we incorporated. The Roebling Storage collection’s simple silhouette and clean lines are great transitional pieces for the future.
