We are so happy to find such a beautiful nursery design and share with you! It is absolutely gorgeous in terms of colour and accents!
You see? It is never enough for rainbows and unicorns! And a small vintage decor can change everything.
This nursery is designed by a mom Kelly Telfeyan. She is sharing her tips with us and where she bought the items to decorate the space for her daughter.
In fact, Kelly Telfeyan is an attorney and interior design is her passionate hobby. Let’s see what she tells about the nursery and how she created it.
I designed the nursery for our adopted daughter, Abigail Piper (seen in the photo above). My intent was to create a nursery space that was happy, cheerful, and unique. I did that by applying gold wall decals to create a feature wall, using modern art pieces from local artists, carefully selecting bookshelves and wall decor, and infusing a lot of unicorns and rainbows. I also love the Jenny Lind coral crib and the coordinating area rug!!
The teal piece under the mirror is vintage 1960s. I painted it because the wood varnish was damaged…otherwise I would never paint good, solid wood!!
I think the space should grow with my daughter for years to come!! It is one of the happiest spaces in our house!! I think people have started to move too much toward neutrals in nurseries, but no one should be afraid to use color!! I also went off the beaten path by placing the crib in the middle of the room under a chandelier!!
We are happy to share a great idea for Girl’s Nursery from Vanessa Antonelli
Before I begin a client’s design, I have an internal meeting with my team. To get a good visual, picture it like a game show. We’re all excited. Ideas are flowing. Some of us stand. Some sit.
You have an idea? Shout it out! It’s a bit of chaos, but in a really creative and fun environment. Most of the time you can hear me shouting things out like “I want a neon basketball hoop or how about a surf board shelf”.
Each time they stop and look at me and say, “Vanessa, that’s not a thing.” Ok fun police, but how about we make it a thing? And that’s exactly how most of this nursery came to be.
When my client purchased the home, they moved the walls to create one L shaped room. The shape of the space made it feel like two separate rooms, so it was my job to make it flow well and look like one beautifully designed space.
The walls were inspired by a graphic design image I found on a notebook that belonged to my own toddler daughter in the exact color. I went back and forth between hand painting it and having a custom wallpaper created.
In the end a painter was hired to re-create it on-site using the inspo image.There are so many special and sweet spots in the space too. The custom pink feather sconces that match the room’s overhead light are a spectacular standout, as well as the custom pink tree-like bookcase.
The beautiful crib has linen upholstered side panels with modern lines. There are several spaces throughout the nursery where acrylic elements appear. In order to add just a touch more, I changed the included crib legs to acrylic ones. I love making small changes to things in order to customize it for the client.
The mix of textures like the gorgeous wood finish on the custom Romina Furniture dresser, the fur ottoman and nook cushion, the crystal beaded wallpaper and the patterns utilized throughout all work so well together.
While designing I instantly realized that there was going to be a lot of pink! I knew I needed to tone that down a little and I wanted to do it with the artwork. When I was traveling with my family, I saw a painting in a restaurant that had an acrylic frame on it and a neon light.
I was so inspired by it. I knew that something in that vein with a different design and bright colors would best balance the pink sweetness of the room and give it a little sass. After all, every princess can also be a rockstar?
