Girl’s Nursery ~ Client Reveal

The week Andrew and I found out that I was pregnant, I received this email:

“My husband and I are expecting our first little one in March.  I am interested in your services for helping us create a nursery here in our home…So far, I have a handful of ideas and fabric swatches, but that’s about all…”

What timing!  I met with Jess shortly after she sent her email and we started working on a design plan for their little girl’s nursery.  Jess originally was leaning towards a pink and green color scheme, but she ended up changing her mind to purple and gray.  (Believe it or not, she made the color switch on her own!)  Jess and Jason were such a pleasure to work with, and it was really fun for me to create a purple nursery, especially during my own pregnancy.

They had a great space to start with; we just needed to transform it in order to accommodate their new arrival.  Here are a few before pictures:

The inspiration for the room started with the purple and gray bedding (from Pottery Barn Kids).

The purple color in the bedding is a unique purple, and I found a perfect match to it in the fabric we used for the window treatments.  The embroidered modern floral design was a soft and playful addition to the nursery.

The beautiful window treatments were fabricated by Christine of Iron Gate Interiors.

Jess found these adorable pom poms on Etsy ~ Bell Bloom Design.  To complete the color scheme, we brought in a few pops of aqua to use as an accent color throughout the nursery.

We also added an armoire to the room for extra storage.

    What colors of paint did you use? And where did you get them from?! Beautiful nursery!

    • Cathy Green says:

      Hi Leslie,
      The light gray that is on all of the walls is: Benjamin Moore, Misty Memories 2118-60 and the darker gray that is on the stenciled wall is: Benjamin Moore, Excalibur Gray 2118-50
      We purchased the paint from a Benjamin Moore retailer here in Richmond.

    Gorgeous room! I love the accents and colors, it all goes together so beautifully. I too have purchased the Dahlia bedding from Pottery Barn Kids and would love these curtains! Any way to get the fabric? Thank you so much!!

  3. Erica says:

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you painted the stencil wall with the base paint then overlapped it with the darker gray? Or did you leave it alone all together and just started the stencil? Love this nursery!!!
