Real Rooms - Fabulous Fete Nursery

Today's nursery was designed by event and wedding planner Kristin of Fabulous Fete for her son.  This rooms has a classic traditional East Coast vibe with a punch of drama from the fabulous rug - a la Mary McDonald.  Don't you love the added monogram on the roman shade too?  There is so much attention to detail in this room you can tell she has a designer's eye when planning weddings.

1- What was the inspiration for your room?
I love monograms and wanted a baby nursery with a monogram but one that doesn't look to childish or children's themed.

2 - What was the first piece that your purchased for the room?
The antique colored engraving of children playing.  I found it on eBay and knew that it would go in a child's nursery, it didn't matter if it was a boy or girls room.

3 - What is your favorite aspect of the room?
The rug and drapes.

4 - Now that your room is complete, what would your change or do differently if you could?
I'd get a different chest, now we have a dark coffee colored chest instead of the white chest.  The white chest was so old that it was hard to open the drawers with one hand!  I also might get a rug made from different materials or weave.  The rug has a lot of link that comes off when the baby plays and the lint gets on his toys and on us when we sit on the floor.
