Design a room around one print

Recently I was introduced to this beautiful alphabet print by Katie of It’s Hue I Love.

I immediately fell in love with the color story and was inspired to create a mood board of my fantasy nursery based on the palette.

  1. The original print from It’s Hue I Love
  2. For this,  my fantasy nursery, I wanted to go deep, glam with a touch of bold playfulness – the perfect background, this gorgeous gray – originally found over at Restoration Hardware!
  3. I liked the simple lines of this fixture from RHBaby and Child
  4. Always a sucker for the Mimosa fabric line at zGallerie, I thought these turquoise panels were the perfect bold statement to go with the room
  5. Since it is my FANTASY nursery and I don’t have to worry about anyone getting squashed, I would totally prop one of these gorgeous mirrors up along the wall…in real life, clearly you would attach it to the wall.
  6. This beautiful, iron crib from RHBaby and Child is the perfect cream color to coordinate with the print and would look striking against the deep gray walls
  7. I originally thought this plain green crib sheet would fit the bill…then I found THIS gorgeous sheeting at Serena and LilyWhat?!  It’s my fantasy…I can have someone make me a custom crib sheet from this twin set!
  8. Paired with Serena and Lily’s gorgeous leather pouf and…
  9. …this cutie patootie crib skirt from the Missoni line at Target, the crib could REALLY make a perfectly playful statement.
  10. Adding to the glam factor in this room are some shiny details  including this silver, leather tray for corral diapering accessories…every room deserves a little bling, whether it’s a fantasy room or not
  11. And because I like to combine aesthetics, I thought these Senegalese Storage Baskets were a great way to bring some more texture into the room
  12. Of course, the foundation for all of this HAS to be FLOR’s Modern Mix tiles in Moon.  The tone-on-tone works perfectly in this space
  13. For accessories, I really love these fun, gray owls from West Elm
  14. …and this chunky, cream, cable knit throw from Serena and Lily.
  15. I tend to think every room needs a little vintage, but against the dark walls, a walnut piece might be too dim.  With the trim painted in white like this one found over at Design*Sponge, you could have the best of mid-century modern while keeping the integrity of the dark walnut finish.
  16. Every nursery, fantasy or not needs toy storage and these coordinating shelves from Land of Nod are the perfect fit to round out our space.

Lastly, an occasional chair or a rocker or glider would fit well in this space…rather than the one pictured in the collage, however, I think I’m in love with this one instead:

So…have you planned out any fantasy spaces for your home lately?

    Wow! Thanks so much for featuring my ABC print! I think this is a perfect fantasy nursery :) I am especially loving the curtains and the toy storage. You can NEVER have enough toy storage. I’m going to link to this post on my blog today. Glad you like the print!

    I was wondering what program/software you used to create that beautiful concept board. I’m trying to get an online portfolio together and I’d like to supplement some of my finished projects with a few concept boards, but I don’t have any expensive programs like photoshop.
