Behind the Scenes: Nursery photo shoot

We were lucky to have plenty of adorable babies on hand (thanks to what some might call a “FLOR baby boom” last year) to serve as models for a recent nursery photo shoot here in our offices.  Even though they may work at FLOR, these moms (and dads) are sold on the soft, practical ease of FLOR squares for their homes and their baby’s nursery.

While the office was a buzz cooing at our talent for the day, our design team went to work creating FLOR nursery look #1.

We love the wall decal our stylist chose.  It was a cinch to apply and easily comes off without ruining the paint, so you can use, re-use or add to your decal design any time you want.  We love the sleek, modern crib and the cool rocker (a vintage Eames Shell chair).  The teddy bear is vintage and totally adorable.

Everyone had a great time … and we got through the entire day without a single meltdown (thankfully)!

We wanted to keep everybody happy, so there were lots of quick “snack breaks”.  Our “model”, Miles, looks like he’s enjoying himself immensely.

Our design team used Toy Poodle to create a colorful patchwork design – perfect for boys or girls – with flexibility that can grow with your newborn into their toddler years, the tweens and beyond.

Toy Poodle is cushy and soft, which is an important consideration when choosing any kind of floorcovering for a baby’s room.  You don’t want something hard or bristly on those tender knees!

We love the final look.  It’s colorful, cozy, inviting and sophisticated enough to blend with the rest of your well-appointed home.

We created three other baby room designs that day.  Here are the results from those:

Look #2:  You probably wouldn’t think to put an Oriental rug in a baby’s nursery given what can happen.  But, FLOR’s version of Oriental means you don’t have to worry about messes or ruining an heirloom.  Shown here is Reoriented in pink.

 

Look #3:  We went with Modern Mix in blue to create a serene room for Camden.  It’s our version of a solid, updated.

Look #4:  A field of green in two textures is a look that you can only do with FLOR.  We mixed the plush shag of Rake Me Over with the clean look of Feelin’ Groovy for a textural twist.
