With darker tones and a masculine flavor, I wasn’t surprised that this baby boy’s nursery was created for a first time, single dad. With dark wood floors and trim throughout the house, Amy Sklar had her work cut out for her when looking for a way to add some fun and light to the space.
Amy explains, “If we had started painting out the trim to make it lighter to work with the majority of the nursery bedding on the market, it would have really impacted the continuity with the trim and floors in the rest of the house, so we set out to find a bedding that would have the sweetness that the client wanted, but also work with the fixed dark elements of the house.”
The bedding she found, Ferm Living’s Mountain Friends, achieved the perfect tone and tied black and brown in with light blue. Amy used Farrow & Ball’s “Parma Gray” on the walls and the amazing wispy clouds were done by decorative painter Olivia Raeburn.
Apparently Amy reads BuyModernBaby too, so it’s no wonder 😉
In addition to his nursery, this lucky little boy enjoys playroom perfection as well. With an Expedit full of Ugly Dolls, the play table that’s on my personal wish list, and some colorful art and accessories, this room will be fun and functional for years to come.
Thanks for sharing the photos of this incredibly dramatic yet super sweet nursery and the sophisticated but fun playroom, Amy! You do amazing work.
