Tips for Creating a Beautiful Nursery for Baby AND Mom from Designerscall.com
You don'??t have to sacrifice style for function'?¦. You can have it all
1. Re-Rug. Use remnants of hypoallergenic fiber rugs to create a fun, colorful rug. Get creative and make your own design!
2.Stay healthy. Use zero-voc paint and lacquer for walls and furniture. Beautiful results and even better, your family can breathe easy. Check out Benjamin Moore'??s '??Natura'? line.
3.Look up. Put wallpaper on the ceiling. Babies are on their backs for the first 3-6 months of their lives, why not make things interesting for them? A little texture and splash of color is fun for adults too!
4.Reclaim vintage pieces. A vintage dresser can be transformed into a proper changing table, with compartments inside for organizing baby needs and a railing on top to house the changing mattress. Vintage chic!
5.Let there be light! Place a light fixture at the center of the room to warm things up- vintage is always nice touch.
6.Introducing'?¦ the tottoman! A fun, efficient way to stow away toys and books. Designers Call will custom design a tottoman to fit the '??look'? of your nursery. Pricing for the tottomans start at $1000 + fabric. www.designerscall.com
These six great tips are from Lara Fishman, Owner of Storm Interiors and her new venture Designers Call. Designer's Call was conceived after a number of Lara's friends, many of them busy parents, expressed the need to have their homes designed by a professional, but simply couldn't afford the time or cost required.
For many it was a matter of finding a solution for a small projects or help with a important purchase. But not a project that warranted a traditional interior designer. Lara realized she could bring fast, affordable decorating services and design products straight to her clients' homes. What a great idea! She's based in LA, but has a lot of terrific ideas on her site.
