We featured Pearson’s luxurious nursery in our August/ September Baby Lifestyles e-glossy magazine issue and were delighted that
her mom Amy sent us in professionally shot pictures with her most recently updated decor. Amy envisioned a room for her daughter that was timeless, classy and all white. “I thought I was absolutely crazy,” Amy shared with us. Luckily a friend gave her the validation she was yearning for and the great advice of “if you can wash it, it doesn’t matter what color it is.” Amy set out to create a young Hollywood glamour feel for Pearson’s room. “But one where you can take your shoes off and get comfortable. I wanted the end result to be comfortable and versatile so that some of the pieces could grow with her. I wanted it to be a room she would want to hang out in.”
The room had been recently painted a soft blue, not in anticipation of a boy, but because Amy was aiming for a spa-like guest bedroom. Neutrals, creams and whites give Pearson’s room the polished and elegant look. The tufted chair was Amy’s grandmother’s, which she had recovered in a off-white velvet. White linen grommet curtain panels compliment the roman shades for the window decor. The mirror was a decade-old purchase which was given a spray paint face lift, giving Amy the exact result she was looking for over Pearson’s crib wall. She went with a semi-gloss paint for the walls with the mindset that Pearson is a baby and “you can’t clean flat paint.”
The mirrored dresser upped the glamorous ante in the room, without having a literal ‘princess’ feel. With just the right amount of glitz to make any nursery feel luxurious, it’s also functional as Pearson’s changing table. The ultra soft sheepskin rug lends some regal texture and also provides a royal play area. “We love rolling around having tickle fights on it. We also sit and read many books there.”
Since Pearson’s room has five large windows and a windowpane door, Amy is very judicious with wall space. “Art gets some precious real estate around here.” She wanted a great bulletin board for art, pictures, invitations, mementos and more. She ordered a bulletin board and bought some fabric, took it to Michaels and had it framed. “The purpose of the board is to display Pearson memories. It is really the only shot of color in the room. I rotate items on the board and try to emphasize her life and creativity more than anything else in the room.”
“My favorite detail is actually how much natural light Pearson’s room gets and how the feeling changes throughout the day and throughout the year.”
Thanks Amy for sharing (and re-sharing!) Pearson’s glamorous, luxury nursery with us!
