A dear friend of mine from college Liz Carroll of Liz Carroll Interiors sent me over these images today of a nursery that she recently completed for a client. The neutral beige walls paired with the dusty stormy blue upholstery create a beautiful sophisticated and soothing space. The Sharon Montrose baby animal prints above the crib are a favorite of mine and I'm dying to know who makes the chic floor lamp! It is perfect next to a glider.
Thank you for sharing this with us Liz! Who would have known that 12 years ago we were in Business School together at UNC and now we both have our own design businesses and two kids!
I'm a big fab of the Mexican Otomi inspired decor popping up everywhere. From lamps like this Hunter lamp by Stray Dog Designs....
... to bedding we are seeing the embroidery-inspired design in nurseries and big kids rooms.
The original coverlets are beautiful, embroidered and available from retailers like Jacaranda and Table Tonic for $300+. Doesn't it look beautiful in this home in Cabo San Lucas designed by Marshall Watson?
But if you don't want to spend a few hundred dollars for one for your child, then head over to Land of Nod for their new inspired bedding line available in yellow, teal and lavender.
See my post from last year HERE for more Otomi decoration inspiration.
How perfectly in synch is this nursery suited for this home designed by Estee Stanley featured in the August Issue of Lonny Magazine this month? It is almost a "mini me" parallel!
And the beautiful blush daughter's room is sophisticated yet comfy.

Notice that the rugs truly make both rooms.
Then I keep flipping through the virtual issue and happen upon a fabulous home and casual kid-friendly family room designed byKristi Bender and Wendi Schwartz complete with my favorite grasscloth textured walls to hang kids art!
I'm dying to use the watercolored wallpaper by Black Crow Studios used in the hallways below on a current project I'm working on.
