Texan Elegance

Here is a special look into a reader's nursery in Fort Worth, Texas. The gender neutral nursery is a romantic and glamorous take on traditional design. I am so happy to share this fabulous with you this week. Thank you Christy for all of your insight through your design process.


When we first moved into our home, I knew this particular room would become the nursery. The one thing I chose to do in our home was to keep with a style that would not show its age. Our house is very period throughout, and has very little decorating "trends". The original color in this room was darker green when we moved in, but we changed it to a softer greenish baby feel. We also utilized the silk striped window treatments that were original to the room. My vision for this was to stay with a neutral pallet to allow for a boy or girl to enjoy.


I started with the crib from Posh Tots; very French and very neutral. The glider and silk bassinet are also from Post Tots. We added two scalloped cornices to the top of the windows and had our 1st son's initials hand painted in the middle of each one. At that time, I also purchased extra fabric to do the same thing for a second baby down the road.


The canopy above the crib is something that I had always envisioned! For years I looked for the perfect gilt wood baldacchino in the right size, price and style. With no luck, I settled on this custom silk one...which frankly I like much better. The trundle daybed is the Afton from Ballard Designs upholstered with custom fabric. I found the antique wall consoles at one of my favorite auction houses in New Orleans, and then later topped them with beautiful light green & white marble.


There are six original serigraph (3-D) silkscreen James Rizzi prints handing above the consoles in the nursery which my parents gave to me as a birthday gift years ago. It is a series of recreated classic famous paintings. I loved these as I was an Art History Major at Southern Methodist University. The idea of hand sewn silk bow-ribbons came from my late maternal grandmother. I thought it would be a perfect way to "tie" them all together.

  11. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)

    Si vous vous assurez que les sacs à main bon marché que vous achetez sont fabriqués par un fabricant réputé, à partir de matériaux de la meilleure qualité, vous pouvez être certain qu’ils dureront longtemps. Les femmes dans le monde d'aujourd'hui ont besoin de transporter beaucoup de choses avec elles, où qu'elles aillent. (Mots clés: Sac Longchamp Pas Cher,Sac Longchamp Solde,Sac Longchamp Pas Cher)
