I recently found a private pinboard I completely forgot about. It was the start of a nursery for a little baby BOY! I started it before we found out Faye was a little girl and I was so certain we were going to have a boy. Ha! So much for intuition. We couldn’t be happier with how Faye’s room turned out, but if she were a he, it might have looked more like this.
It’s similar to the vibe of Faye’s nursery–calming, sophsticated, with a touch of charm–but more masculine. Things like the shelf of baskets and books, and even her current curtains would work well in this space, too. We even have the same glider in her current room in Dove Gray–but love the richness of the Ink Blue in this set up.
As for the name? We only had one boy name on our list for years (as opposed to the many girl names we loved)–Teddy! Funny enough, Sherry and I had a conversation about “Teddy” years ago, so we had a good laugh when we heard that John and Sherry named their son that. They beat us to it! Although this mood board definitely has me excited for the potential of a little boy one day (if I have a third in me! we’re taking it one at time), we’re so happy we were blessed with another girl. Faye has been the most delightful addition to our family. Also, I could design nurseries all day long. Is there anything more fun?!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
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.
