Designing a baby boy's nursery
The trend for baby nurseries these days seems to be moving away from pastels and towards more graphic pops of color for a room that can easily transition from baby to toddler to elementary school and beyond. The nurseries and kids rooms we’ve been seeing lately are sophisticated, but still whimsical. One of the most important elements of any baby nursery is the window coverings. They need to be designed with your baby’s best sleep in mind! A quiet pulley system and black out lining are a must. The shade is also a great opportunity to bring a fun, graphic print into the room that can really set the tone. Here are a few of our favorite children’s rooms where a fun (but transitional!) roman shade fabric was selected to inform the color scheme for the space.
The fresh blue and red combination of this room, below, feels very modern. The roman shade here was made more interesting by creating a greek key-like motif with tape around the border.
In this green and yellow room, below, a white sail cloth fabric is used with a lime green tape border for the roman shade.
We’re helping one of our clients with her baby boy’s nursery right now and in the process of choosing a fabric for the roman shades. These are three of our favorite options–which one do you like most? 1, 2, or 3?
