My daughter-n-law and I wanted a whimsical type nursery but still wanted it to be masculine. We searched and searched for some type of inspiration to help us with a theme. Finally we came across a photo of a little girl kissing a frog prince and the theme was set. We know from the beginning that we wanted a black and white color combination and finally settle on green for our third color. From that point we let our imaginations flow. We added striped to the bottom part of the wall by taping off 12 in. sections and painting in alternating colors of black & white. The top border of the wall we created a connecting diamond shaped pattern using a diamond stencil I created out of cardboard. I used a small circle sponge to add metallic gold dots where each diamond meets. Using colors in Fresh Parsley, Black & White in a satin finish. I custom designed and handmade all the curtains, accent pillows, placemat and changing table cover.
The Chandelier was custom created by Whimsical Collections as a replica to the custom painting we had painted by hilariagalleries .
Other accessories bought at various stores throughout our process for creating this nursery.
This room was a true labor of Love. I enjoyed every minute difficult or easy in the process of designing this nursery, from the time I stitched my first stitch to the very last drop of paint.
I wanted my grandson to have a room worthy of a prince that he is. I created and did most of the work with the inspiration and ideas of my daughter-n-law to help along the way.

This is my daughters room...she loves to dance. We didn't know what to do with all of her costumes so we used some of them in her room.

In my circa 1923 home the kitchen had been remodeled before I bought it.( I posted before photos at the end) The cabinets and design felt to modern for the house and was not the feeling I was going for in the house. I want people to come in and feel like they are somewhere else than just a decorated house. So, rather than tear the cabinets out and start over I decided to use them and paint distress and make them just fun! 233 hours later.... I smile when I walk into my pink kitchen. I don't think you expect to see a serious stove in such a whimsical space but, it works for me. I used the same colors but much more intense in the laundry and bath room adjoining. check it out. It's not for everyone but it is for me... As a decorative artist most of my jobs are so serious I just need my space playful... I hope some of you enjoy it smile

This is our glass enclosed breakfast nook. It has a vintage 50's table set and a Kelvinator that we use as a display case for our vintage dishes.

We put this nursery together for our soon-to-be-here son Henry. We wanted it to be colorful and whimsical, but not babyish or cutesy. We didn't have a theme, but with the animal print artwork, wood stump side table and tree silhouette crib bedding, the room ended up being tied together with a bit of a woodsy/animal theme. Now we just need the baby :)
