Gold Foil Nursery Art

gold foil nursery art

I wanted to take today and highlight the artists that contributed to the Gray & Gold Nursery.  I think the art in that space really made it shine, it made it special.  Each piece has meaning for the couple, for them as a family of three.  The gold foil prints fit in this nursery perfectly, but I also loved the thought that they could be moved to different parts of the home later if desired.  Plus they can grow up with their little boy.  It was a win all around.

I’m so happy to be sharing more up close and personal photos of these artists’ work, and I hope you show them some love.  These are all small business owners, and I so appreciate their love of their craft.  The way these prints came packaged was beauty in itself!

Here they are…in alphabetical order.  You should definitely explore these shops, I found a few things just while writing this post!

And also, I couldn’t finish this post without talking about Trang’s beautiful work on the Origami Mobile.  I’m torn on baby mobiles because they are often too simple looking (and boring for baby), or they are reeeeeeally out there.  I came up with the idea for the origami mobile because I thought the shapes would be intriguing for baby, the shadows the folds of the paper cast would be interesting, plus it would look simple and beautiful.  Trang delivered truly lovely work, and her handcrafted animals from gold metallic paper fit this space to a tee.  Find her work here.

It makes me really happy to showcase other women’s work – women who are entrepreneurial, creative, and smart.  Women working hard to support themselves and their families and using their talent.  A special thanks to these business owners who helped me with this project.

Gray & Gold Nursery Details

gray and gold nursery details

“It’s all in the details”, they say, and I would have to agree.  A beautiful space is more than just lovely furniture, it’s about texture, it’s about the color story, it’s about the feeling you get when you enter the space.  It’s about the meaning and the story behind what is chosen for the room.  Clearly, this element is especially important to me.  (hello my blog name : ) )

Since the couple I was designing for did not find out before the baby was born (update: it’s a BOY!), I knew I needed to put together a nursery that would work for prince or princess.  We wanted contemporary with a touch of modern, and a calm, serene feel.  The parents-to-be love gray and gold, and thus this nursery was created.  I want spaces to be lovely, but I also strive for them to be meaningful.  

You may see elephant and giraffe art and only see a pretty gold foil elephant and giraffe.  But I know the couple really loves elephants and giraffes – they are sentimental in a way.

You may see cute map letters, but I knew the father of this sweet baby loves maps.  (also, I love insetting wallpaper in door panels!  It always adds instant oomph!  Gold Letter Wallpaper source here)

So you see…it is all in the details, and the story of a room, combined with practical (and beautiful!) elements that make up a complete space.

I thought I would take today and point out the bullet points of the room, and provide you with all of the sources since I have been getting lots of questions! (which I am trying to answer as quickly as possible!)

DIY Window Hardware & Acrylic Rods

The most popular DIY on my site by far is my Acrylic/Lucite Rods.  They add a lot of glamour and style to a room for not much money.  I have used them here, here, and here.

I posted on my DIY Acrylic Rods with Plumbing Hardware awhile ago, but the Gray & Gold Nursery presented an extra challenge because I needed to turn a corner.  This room has two full walls of windows, and I really wanted to join them together rather than separate the walls.

DIY Gold Contact Paper Ceiling Stripes

DIY Contact Paper Ceiling Stripes

Thank you so much for everyone’s kind words last week about the Gray, Gold, & White Nursery!  It was so much fun to do, and it is one of those spaces where you step back and just breathe “ahhhhh” when you see it.  This was a room that flowed out of me pretty easily design wise.  I saw the space, talked with the owners, and immediately had the vision.  As you can imagine, this does not happen super often due to rooms idiosyncrasies, but when it does, it is magical.

This week, I will be sharing more about the art, DIY window hardware, and overall thought process on the design of this sweet nursery, but I thought I would kick off this week’s posts with the DIY Contact Paper Striped Ceiling.

When I was visualizing this space, I loved the color scheme and direction it was going , but I felt it needed that extra zing to make it really special.   Continue Reading…
