EXCLUSIVE: Two modern nurseries that are not to be missed!

First of all… I am blogging about MY DREAM HOUSE (I wish!) over at Paloma’s blog  La Dolce Vita today… Its a really cool series and I am the first guest blogger! I loved the exercise of putting together my all time favorite rooms to create the perfect house! I also tried to pick rooms that would go together and could really be one house. Definitely go check it out and let me know what you think of my ultimate house.

Second of all… I have some really cool exclusives to show you today.

I have a friend named Jassi. We have kids the same age and though we often had our children play together at the park or did mommy and me classes together, I had never been to her house. UNTIL, she decided to move back to her home town in Florida and threw a going away party for her son last spring.

I walked into her house…. and I knew. This girl loves design. Why didn’t I know this? Why did we never spend hours shopping and discussing all things home design? I also didn’t know she runs her own event planning company called J Group Events.

Ever since then, we have been keeping in touch via facebook and Jassi sent me some phone shots of her first project in her new home… her kids rooms. I was in SHOCK from how creative they were and insisted she sent me some real photos… oh and btw, its a rental ;)

Behold… Her little girls room:

{How gorgeous are the porcelain flowers? Amazing.}

In her own words:

I saw the porcelain flowers in the Roost catalog and I thought that they would look amazing in a baby girl’s nursery. It was a crazy project though, we had to drill a hole, put the flower in with liquid nails, and then put grouting. I wanted something soft + feminine, but not pink + princessy.

Sources:

The console (Shine by sho)I had in my living room in my old apt and thought it would look great with the flowers. The lamp is also shine, the wallpaper is from Wallquest (its actually chains + pearls but you can barely see in the picture). The daybed + curtains are West Elm, and the bedding + pillows are from Ann Gish. The crib + changing table are Netto (the new louis collection), crib bedding is Bellini, and the rocking chair is Monte.

And her son’s room:


{Shadowboxed toys!!! Cars, legos and block! What an amazing DIY. Its just too cute!}

For my son’s room I wanted fun + modern. I knew I wanted brown + metallic stripes and thought it would be cool to try to continue them on the ceiling- I had to get used to it though because at first it made me dizzyl, but now I love it.

Sources:

The shadow box frames are from Pottery Barn Kids, and I filled them each with different toys. It’s much harder than it looks (the legos, blocks, and cars kept flipping over) The bookcase is from ouef, the model cars/airplanes/ are from Playsam, the rug is Flor, the chair I got on one of the Haute Look sales but I can’t remember the brand. The lamps are Jonathan Adler, the crib + changing table are Nurseryworks, the crib bedding is Ann Gish, and the vintage Ford is from a Gilt sale. The pendant lamp is from Nuevo Living. And the roman shade was actually from his old room- the windows were EXACTLY the same size.

Jassi – Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your nurseries with us! We cant wait to see the rest of the house… AND I personally need to get my butt to Florida to check this out in the flesh!

  1. those rooms are absolutely amazing! i want the little girls nursery to be my bedrooms. thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Wow! These are beautiful! I was so intrigued by the Roost flowers that I looked them up. They’re $9 each! Eek! I have cheap, plastic ones by Umbra and they look terribly shabby now that I’ve seen those beautiful porcelain ones.

  5. renee says:

    ive seen them in person there pretty

  6. coolest kids ever :) Those rooms are spectacular! x

  7. I had forgotten about Shine! Thanks for the reminder.

    Those stripes are pretty awesome. If thought of carrying the pattern from floor to wall, but never from wall to ceiling. Nice impact!

  8. Marielle says:

    AMAZING!

  9. I saw the woman who makes the flowers at ICFF a couple of years ago. They are not inexpensive and they are an art installation but they are fabulous.

    Great options. Love those stripes. Now that is how to do a ceiling and not make it look forgotten!

  10. That little girl’s room is so ethereal and the stripes in the boy’s room are epic!

  11. Love both rooms! How talented is your friend? The girl’s room is so soft and sweet, and the boys room is so cool looking ;) I can’t believe it’s a rental…I am going to hire her for my future baby’s room!

  12. Love, love that baby girl’s nursery. I enjoy designing nursery rooms the most and this is one of the best I have seen in a while. Thanks for sharing.

    xo,
    cristin

    Whereas I completely agree the girls room and those flowers is completely MAG, as a mom I recognize those flowers are a chocking hazard placed within the babies reach above the crib. Babies are very resourceful about wiggling small pieces free when they pull on them. Sorry to be the downer :(

    • Nicole Cohen says:

      Hmm… Considering that she used liquid nails and had them professionally drilled into the wall, I think she should be safe. BUT if she did find that her daughter could reach them and touch them (she is an infant right now) she could always just swap the crib with the bed on the other wall. Problem Solved!

    • Nicole Cohen says:

      Also- I always think about that when I see paintings or artwork hung above a kids or baby’s bed… what if they rip it off the wall or it falls on them?

      I am too scared to hang anything above cookies crib…
