My Modern Nursery #110: Silverspoon Nursery Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I have completely fallen in love with Silverspoon. An exclusive shade of Lullaby Paints only available from Petit Tresor, this silvery blue has just enough color to be recognizable as blue, but it’s nearly gray and is super neutral and calming. I’m thinking of using it for my master bathroom, I love it so much. A sample pouch (with shipping) is just $17 and I’m about to order one!

I went really modern with the white and chrome furniture in this design. Then I softened the look a bit with the rug and soft furnishings. I’d love to see someone bring this room to life!

My Modern Nursery #106: Rose Quartz and Serenity Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We’ve had a great time this month exploring how to use Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2016 in the modern nursery. Of course, when Pantone selected both a shade of pink and a light shade of blue this year, the obvious first thought was of baby girl and baby boy, but part of the point is to use the two colors together in less gender specific ways.

Rose Quartz and Serenity aren’t the typical shade of pink and blue that you’d see used at a gender reveal parties, baby showers and such, so I hope you followed along on our Pinterest board as I found products that really make the most of these great hues.

For the paint colors, though Lullaby Paints has a huge variety of wonderful colors that we’ve been using over the past few years, we finally were able to take advantage of their custom wall color option that allows you to specify any paint shade while still enjoying non-toxic Lullaby Paints and avoiding dangerous chemicals.

Though we combined Rose Quartz and Serenity in this month’s design, we really couldn’t choose just one for the wall color, so you know we had to do TWO rooms!

1- Custom Serenity Wall Paint from Lullaby Paints- $59 a gallon
2- Ambit Pendant from Muuto- $369
3- Amsterdam Cabinet from This is Dutch (Heaven Blue & Loving Blue)- $1300 each
4- Curves by Alexandre Reis- $ depends on size and framing
5- Roh Crib from Spot on Square- $1700
Crib Sheet- Taj Paisley from Rikshaw Design- $40
Plush Goat Pillow from Laura Frisk- $20
6- Aqualou Rug– 8′ x 11′- $4460
7- Moulin Roty Doll Baby Carriage– $200
8- Max Raccoon from Hazel Village- $42
9- Maileg Crocheted Princess Doll– $30
10- Joya Rocker from Monte Design- $1095

Roze Quartz and Serenity: Pantone’s Color(s) of the Year 2016

I always love the day Pantone announces their color of the year. I enjoy the challenge of finding all the best baby gear and nursery accessories in the chosen shade, but I was a little disappointed this year when I discovered what Pantone decided for this year… Roze Quartz and Serenity! First of all, two color picks was a shocker, but then could they get any closer to the cliche baby pink and blue?

But let’s see what the challenge reveals…

Pantone color of the year 2016 rose quartz and serenity

As it turns out, pink lately has been paired with a teal or aqua shade of blue or a dark navy shade. Serenity is more of a cornflower blue or a periwinkle without any purple. Additionally, Rose Quartz is devoid of any yellow that would turn it into a more salmon or coral shade of pink. This made selecting Rose Quartz and Serenity items more of a challenge than I expected.

The pink and blue are meant to blend together this year. It’s a balance between the warm pink and cool blue as it’s explained on Pantone’s website, “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

What do you think of Pantone’s picks for 2016?

1- Ambit Pendant from Muuto
2- Bugaboo Donkey Duo
3- Wooden Doll No. 7 by Alexander Girard
4- Mushroom Lamp from Egmont Toys
5- Stripes and Sunburst from Oz Cushions
6- Blueberry Pie Melamine Plate from Colette Bream
7- Capri Crib bedding from Oilo
8- Softline Pink Quadro Ottoman
9- Plush Goat Pillow from Laura Frisk
10- ITM Tropical Delight Pastel Braided Rug

My Modern Nursery #95: French Blue Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For our latest nursery board with Lullaby Paints, I selected French Blue. It’s a beautiful, versatile blue that can be used with many decor styles. French Blue is bright enough to make an impact but not so bold that it’s dark or overwhelming. Obviously, I ignored the “French” part of the name and not surprisingly steered far away from toile patterns. Instead, I used bold, bright, modern colors and shapes.

If you enjoy this scheme, please visit the French Blue Nursery Inspiration Pinterest board for more items to consider. You can complete your own space with additional options from the board.

The Elephant Needlepoint Throw Pillow features an iconic design in the traditional style of Jonathan Adler Pillows.  If it’s out of reach, the Happy Chic Charlie Elephant Pillow has an embroidered ear, eye and heart and might do the job for 1/6 of the price.

Real Room Tour: West Hollywood Nursery from Amy Sklar Design

I really should take more time to browse interior design portfolios, but thankfully I was able to discover this unique gem of a nursery via a pin from Monte Design.

redIMG_0455_v2

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.

With some beautiful classic modern nursery pieces like Monte’s Luca Glider and the Moda Crib and Dresser from Room & Board, this space is modern nursery perfection.

Add a little Jonathan Adler, photos from The Animal Print Shop, and giant blabla dolls, and we’ve got a master class in modern nursery design.

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.
