The love, style and personality featured in this rustic and adorable nursery is almost too much for us to handle. Pop-of-color doors, bold printed wallpaper offset by handmade touches created by the talented mommy-to-be make us want to curl up on the fluffy chevron rug and settle into the reading nook with a little "Goodnight Moon."
Womanista Executive Director and Supermom, Falon Terry collaborated with Nashville Interior Designer Andria Fromm to create a handsome and charming haven where every corner is styled to perfection.
What was the inspiration for this space?
I wanted a nursery that didn’t feel too babyish. Not the typical baby blue and navy or themed. I think print mixing is so fun and I wanted to incorporate a grasscloth wallpaper so those were my only requests. My designer Andria pulled a few fabrics and wallpaper samples as a starting point. I loved everything she picked out so we just went with it.
What did you splurge/save on?
The reading nook wallpaper was definitely a “splurge.” It was such a small space, I debated spending the money on it but I’m so glad I did. It was the perfect spot to add a printed wallpaper. It gives it so much character. I saved by using simple white and grey wood frames for the wall art from Target and Michaels craft store. There is a time and place for custom framing but a nursery is not it. I also made the mobile myself which was a fun and special “save.”
What is the first thing people notice when they walk in the room?
The burnt orange closet doors. Those cute little doors were one of the first things Andria noticed when seeing the blank room for the first time and suggested we do. It was a super simple and fun way to bring character and a little color. This was previously a storage room so it’s fairly small with really small closets. Painting the doors made me more excited about those tiny little closets.
Womanista Mom Tip: nothing is ever actually hung after the first wear and wash so don’t fret if you don’t have a ton of closet space. A dresser and LOTS of baskets are the way to go!
What ended up being your favorite part about this room?
Tough question, I really love it all! It truly feels comfy and peaceful… as peaceful as it can get with a newborn baby occupying it.
Any advice to others designing a nursery?
Do what will work for your family! It’s easy to get caught up in wanting a very picture-esq room but anyone who has kids will tell you, that picture perfect room stays perfect for about one day after bringing baby home. At that point, you will want function. You spend a lot of time in this space so you want to make sure it’s comfortable for you and baby.
