We’re still riding the high from the recent launch of our Pottery Barn Kids collection, thanks to all of you, of course. Seeing our vision come to life and receiving so much support has warmed our hearts, and we’re just so grateful. We designed this kids’ collection to be versatile across age and gender, and I can’t think of a better way to demonstrate this than presenting two mood boards designed two ways.
You may have seen while we were out in Idaho last month, we spent some time painting a nursery for our best friends, Kelsi and Caleb Fullmer. This was all in anticipation of our collection launching, and we’ll be returning to Idaho in the coming months to finish putting it all together, but I’m so excited to finally be able to share some more details of this super-secret project we’ve been keeping to ourselves!
The walls have already been painted a pale blue, Benjamin Moore Wales Gray, and we’re so excited about installing our peel-and-stick wallpaper mural. Then we’re going to load it in with all of the finishing details, starting with rolling out one of our Loloi rugs. All of the main furniture pieces are from our Pottery Barn Kids collection, including the crib, which converts to a toddler bed and pairs beautifully with the turned-leg dresser with the removable changing table topper. Every nursery needs a glider, and although we had a glider we used and loved, I’m jealous that I didn’t get to use this glider for my babies! It couldn’t be comfier or prettier, and the half-moon ottoman should be standard! I almost forgot about the bubble light chandelier, which is very reminiscent of the fixture we had in Faye’s old room. The plaids and stripes throughout the room are very complimentary of the Idaho location, as is the forest animal artwork, which will be framed in our display frames, which open from the front. In other words, swapping out artwork is a breeze! I found this really pretty, soft plaid fabric that I’m having custom curtains made with, which I think will go beautifully with the sheets, baby blanket, and pillows.
As I said before, this collection is versatile across age and gender, which brings me to Faye’s room!
Our 9-year-old daughter Faye has been patiently waiting for this collection to drop because we knew that it would be sprinkled throughout her room! This is one possible iteration, but fair warning, I’m waiting for all of the wallpaper samples to arrive before I make any decisions. But this is the direction I’m leaning toward, and I love, love how it looks. Similar to Polly’s room, which is the “Jack” to Faye’s “Jill” bedroom, the entire room will be wallpapered, maybe in this warm maybe/brown floral print. It’s too pretty. I also love the idea of doing some contrasting trim in glossy navy paint. It would be a huge missed opportunity NOT to include a fixture from our Shades of Light collection, and I’ve been dying to use a Marlo. The bed and dresser are two peas in a pod, and I’m dying to use this beautifully embroidered quilt from our PBK collection. Fun fact: we edited the colors on it several times before landing on this poppy red-orange flower, which will tie in nicely with the burnt orange velvet curtains (Faye’s favorite color). Oh, and the quilt is reversible with a pale gingham on the other side. The room isn’t huge, but bringing in a smaller accent chair is so practical and ties it all together. Lastly, the table lamp was specifically designed with Faye in mind because she’s my trinket collector, and I love that this lamp has a scalloped catchall for all those dainty things.
Which one are you most excited about?
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
