abstract funky baby

i enjoy designing nurseries for my friends and family (a ton are having babies right now) so here's one for the abstract baby... perfect for a family who wants to keep the gender a surprise.

i like to start with something big to choose the color palette.

i love that this abstract affordable painting has yellows, burnt umber, bright blue, magenta, lavender and grays to choose from!

these buttonwood curtains from anthropologie continue a bold print and pick up the yellows and were designed by thomas paul.

there's a lot going on with these two bright, patterned sort of strange additions to the nursery, so we need to play a little neutral with some things.

first, i can't get enough of this flokati rug which is available in all sorts of different qualities at most major stores

the marlo crib set is available at serena and lily

Lavender Leather Pouf
bring out the lavender with this pouf and of course all other colors are available if this isn't gender neutral

rock baby with the eames RAR rocker (available in a ton more colors)

from jonathan adler

and to pull the look together, some ugly dolls (who by the way, were incredibly generous and gave each of our students an ugly doll the first year of our school)

  1. sweet choices maddie. those ugly dolls are actually funny looking as well. love the rug and crib set. i've never seen a rocking chair like eames. the pillow is adorable and i think i saw a mother holding her baby in the abstract painting...if you look closely to your bottom left, maybe you'll see it too or i may just be seeing things since it's almost the end of my shift at work, he he.



Please leave a nice comment! Thank you :-)
