Thomas’ Nursery

Here’s a sweet little guest post from one of my long time besties, Meredith.  She’s mom to my tiniest (and most adorable) little buddy, Thomas, who has a nursery that’s almost as cute as he is ;)

Welcome, Meredith!

…..

Full disclosure – Wheeler and I have been friends over 15 years! Completely unbiased, she is a wildly talented designer. I’m very lucky to have her as a best friend for so many reasons – but I especially love how she helps turn my house into a home. Something gets moved around every time she’s here. It is no surprise that when I told her I was expecting we immediately started talking nursery. I spend so much time with Thomas in his nursery and love every detail. Being a new mom comes with a lot of unknowns – it is necessary to have a peaceful place you can relax and enjoy time with your new little one. I wanted to share how Wheeler helped make that space for me!

Traditional Twist

This beautiful space feels traditional, but a twist of contemporary and glam takes it beyond that comfortable style. The chunky wood table is a great contemporary piece, while the round tub chairs trimmed in a silvery metallic that’s repeated in the side table add a touch of glam.

Traditional Twist

With traditional bones, treasured table and chairs, along with antique accessories, this dining room goes for much more with the appealing look of Chinoiserie in the fabulous screen and brass side chairs. Tall glass buffet lamps with gold metallic shades are a lovely contrast to the stunning ornate chandelier above the table.

Traditional Twist

In a breathtaking twist, the homeowner/designer asked for a glass greenhouse ceiling inside her new traditional kitchen. She got what she wanted and much more—it’s stunning.

Traditional Twist

This beautifully pale traditional kitchen is bathed in the glow from an ornate crystal chandelier with a contemporary twist—a sheer drum cage covering the upper portion of the light fixture.

Traditional Twist

A lovely mix of cabinetry and contemporary metals infuses this traditional kitchen with style and great functionality. I love the trio of simple pendant lights above the work table/charming dining spot.

Traditional Twist

In a cool twist on traditional farmhouse, this attic bedroom gets a polka dot upholstered bed and contemporary bedding to match.

Traditional Twist

A traditional girl’s bedroom with dark wood four-poster bed shows off a cute twist and one that could be easily implemented. Think paper pom poms, crocheted balls or tiny soft sculptures of just about any sort.

Traditional Twist

Architecturally, this room is totally traditional, but the furnishings are definitely not traditional with simply styled low seating and lots of modern elements. And the biggest twist here is the unexpected gaggle of contemporary lamps emanating from the ornate center ceiling medallion and hanging above the space.
