Before designing my daughter’s room, the last color I would have expected to see in it was pink. But here’s my out: this isn’t really pink, it’s blush, and blush is just classy. I paired it with gold accents to make it even more elegant—my goal was to create a palette (and room) that was feminine but strong because I believe in powerful women. 

I want my daughter to grow up knowing she can be beautiful and strong. My favorite quote, and something that describes her so accurately, “Though she be but little, she is fierce,” hangs over her dresser.

I also knew I wanted this room to be as functional as it was beautiful, so I chose the Graham Glider for its comfort, floating shelves and (lots of) baskets for storage, and a handful of soft things to cuddle up with in the middle of the night.

ANITA

Anita’s room had the sweetest built-ins you ever did see. And that’s the only word I could think of to accurately describe my vision for this nursery: sweet. This meant using organic material, family heirlooms, and handwritten letters from Anita’s grandmother. 

Her Mama already had the animal art and wooden rocker, and I filled in the rest.

 
From the vintage closet door pulls and handmade floral mobile to the letters displayed from Nita’s grandmother on custom made wood crosscuts, everything is a perfect blend of sentiment and design to make the space really “speak” to us.
