Cristi Holcombe, an interior designer in the Atlanta area, designed this calm and cozy nursery for her own little boy.
The first thing that’s probably catching your eye is the incredible color and design of the rug. Well, Cristi is extremely talented, and unbelievably, this was a DIY upgrade of an Erslev rug from Ikea! Yes, she painted the rusty orange design herself and I love how it goes with the wood floor.
This nursery is another example of the fact that you don’t need a dedicated changing table. A simple Malm from Ikea serves as a spacious changing surface as well as great storage.
The most wonderful thing (in my opinion) in this space is the combination of fabrics. I’m especially drawn to the Citysquare fabric of the crib skirt and chair pillow.
The before and after of the chair is amazing and I’m kinda into the whole white slip-covered chair thing in the bedroom right now. It has such a comfortable look.
Cristi bought the bird mobile well before she was even pregnant and it just goes perfectly in this space.
The gallery wall includes a sweet collection of prints from etsy (including the Yellow Blue Strip Bird Collage Print from John W. Golden and the Alligator to Zebra poster from Sea Urchin Studio) and a few other personal treasures.
I love the collection of ceramic birdhouses from West Elm. They look so charming here on the wall.
And this lovely collection of mugs is a gift that spells out her little one’s name. It’s adorable. What a thoughtful gift!
I love seeing the design board to see how the original inspiration was adjusted in reality but how the original feel and vision has been clearly maintained.
