Magic, miracles, and wonder: a nursery tour

June 10, 2014

Creating a nursery for a baby girl can be tough when you aren’t much for themes and you reject anything that’s too cute or too sweet and you refuse to buy anything that comes in a “set” or “collection” and you insist on creating spaces that are beautiful and delightful but that are also the kind of spaces real people can actually live in. For months, everyone has asked, what’s the theme for your nursery? and what colors are you doing? and when I respond that there isn’t much of a theme and the palette is mixed neutrals and metallics, I get a lot of slow nods and furrowed brows.

Kind of like the rest of my home? I say. A curated collection of things? A modern foundation with thoughtful details. I want to evoke a feeling of magic, and of miracles, and of wonder.

This does not seem to help.

But now that it’s finally done, and in honor of baby’s due date, perhaps I can just show you?
