There are a few different camps of people when it comes to organization. Some are more chaotic, some appear chaotic while actually being organized in their own way, and others are just plain organized. I fall into the third category, which is why I get along with Jamie and Fillip of Horderly. I met them years ago when they were in California working on expanding their amazing professional organizing company. So when Jamie announced she was pregnant, I got a call from her!
Since they live on the East Coast, I did a nursery E-Design for them. Jamie’s style is soft and subtle, and she wanted a nursery that was clean, classic, neutral, and you guessed it, organized. Take a look at how their very organized nursery came out below!
Green Cane Dresser | Neutral Boucle Glider | Neutral Patterned Rug | Neutral Ottoman | Light Wood Crib | Round Gold Mirror | Wood Wall Ledges | Silicone Changing Pad | Small Neutral Lamp | Custom Window Seat Cushion | Small Art Prints
The biggest challenge in this nursery design was the floor plan. As you can see, we ended up with the dresser/changing table in the corner and the glider in front of the radiator. There were a lot of doors and windows in here so we didn’t have a lot of usable wall space. We chose a small framed glider so there would be room to glide back and forth, and paired that with a very light weight ottoman that can be pushed out of the way for playtime.
For the crib wall, we chose some wall sconces in a pretty brass and white to add a little light to the room. Behind them is a soft, neutral stripe wallpaper. We just did the wallpaper on this wall as an accent instead of bringing it all around the room. A large faux olive tree sits in the corner to bring some greenery and life into the nursery. If you’ve been following LCI, you know we love to use plants!
As mentioned above, we used a small glider in here since we had the radiator behind it. There was a great little window seat in here as well that now has a custom cushion on it to coordinate with the wallpaper and overall design. We also added two sweet little wall art prints above the glider which help to bring in the green that’s in other spots as well.
For the changing table, we opted for a green framed piece with caning detail. It really helps to add come contrast to this white space, and the texture is gorgeous! There is a neutral silicone changing pad on top and a small lamp for those late nights.
And of course, the organizing! Jamie added bamboo drawer organizers to the dresser to carefully organize all the little clothing. She also put some small bins in the closet and around the room, and kept things clean and simple.
Did you organize your nursery, and did it stay that way?
