Real Room Tour: A Room With A View

Emily, from Emphasis Added emailed me a link to her daughter’s nursery tour and I was smitten.

I love the description of her plan for the room.  She wanted a space that was quirky and bright– a place that fostered curiosity and felt like home.  When your home is a stylish flat with a view of downtown Chicago, this is the perfect homey nursery.

As we often see in modern nurseries, the walls and furnishings are neutral and the fun and color is added through art and accessories.  I love the turquoise and yellow accents in the reading corner and am impressed with the use of large scale art pieces throughout the room.  “The Bananas in Baccarat” painting has a wonderful story behind it.

The crib is Oeuf’s Sparrow crib in White and you can’t help but notice the rainbow granny blanket from Screamy Mimi (whose nursery tour we featured months ago).  Above the crib is a colorful abacus from CB2.  I’m excited to see it used as nursery decor a la my suggestion last summer.

The library corner features a leaning bookshelf from West Elm and lots of colorful items including that little reading stool.

The changer is the matching Oeuf Sparrow Dresser / Changing Table and Emily is really loving her Monte Luca Glider.  I especially love the periodic table poster.  What a great “geeky” alternative to the alphabet poster.

All the little details combine to make a special, unique and personal space.

Thank you so much Emily for sharing the photos of this beautiful space.  You can feel the love and excitement about welcoming your upcoming arrival to her new home.  It makes me so happy to know there are little girls growing up in creative, enriching spaces like these.
