Darling Boy’s Nursery Room

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links to One Kings Lane, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using this link.


I adored this  darling boy’s nursery room by Joni Lay so much, I had to share it with you. She designed it for her nephew and has some really sweet elements. The neutral palette (walls in Sherwin Williams’ Mindful Gray) is  perfect for a calming nursery. The giraffe artwork above the crib offers a great pop of color. The print is actually from a page of an antique  book purchased on etsy. It was scanned and then re-printed at a much larger scale. So cute, right?

I also love that the changing table is a vintage dresser. Hanging above the changing table is a collections of family photos, graphic artwork, arrows and a darling triangle mobile made of leather. Love!

Design Reveal :: Traditional Boys Bedroom

Do you remember this client’s traditional boy’s bedroom with the vintage airplane art? Today I’m excited to share images of his brother’s bedroom. It too is traditional in style and super cute.

The bedding, all from Serena & Lily set the blue, orange and green color palette for the room.  Benjamin Moore’s Paradise View was selected for the walls. It’s bright, beachy and energetic.

A trio of cityscape graphics printed on natural wood by Petit Collage were hung above the bed. Skylines of the families’ favorite cities – Paris, New York and San Francisco were selected. I love how the artwork adds a personal touch, while pulling the color scheme together too!

A simple, yet functional book rack was hung beside the bed. A great way to organize books and magazines if you have a tight space like this!

As parents know, toys can take over a child’s bedroom. Here, a shelving unit keeps the toys stored neatly in bins and orange baskets. A large cork board hangs above and is great for displaying kid’s art, awards and party invitations.

A pair of star hook for hats, backpacks and coats flank the toy storage unit. Hooks are a great way to keep these items off the floor!

Have a great day!

Rustic, Elegant Row House in Brooklyn

Recently Vogue featured the Brooklyn home of  landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor, Miranda Brooks and her architect husband, Bastien Halard. Lead by Harlard, the rundown row house was completely renovated from head to toe in just six months. The interior design is American pastoral with rustic, yet elegant touches. And although new, the rooms are inviting and have a lived in feel I love. Speaking of love, it was the custom de Gournay wallcovering in the master bedroom and hand-painted/printed wallpapers in the girls’ rooms that had me looking twice at this home. (swoon)

Design Reveal :: Traditional Boy’s Bedroom

It’s the small details that make interiors special and this is especially true when it comes of designing kid’s rooms. Although my client’s son’s bedroom was charming before, adding art, storage and a work area personalized and maximized the space.

The young boy loves Legos and has created some wonderful pieces that needed a home. Taking advantage of the room’s beautiful high pitched ceiling, I had a custom display shelf built the length of the the entire wall. Now his Lego creations are stored neatly (and safely!). They also add such wonderful color and texture to the room. For now the shelf stores Legos, but in the future as the child’s interests change it could be used for other collections such as books, trophies or photographs in the future.

By adding a table and chairs under the shelf, I created an area for the boy to work on this Lego projects. I  selected a traditional drop-leaf table could expand for larger projects and had storage shelves underneath to tuck away works in progress. The clean-lined red chairs were added for a fun pop of color.

Originally a large scale black and white photo of a vintage airplane was going to be placed above the table. However, my client and I were drawn to this art-wall first seen on Pinterest. Purchased on Etsy, twelve different vintage airplane prints were placed in a simple, white frame and hung.

 I love how these special, personalized design elements pulled together the room. Don’t you?
