A Home Office Becomes A Fresh, Cozy Nursery and Other News

First of all, this is happening this Thursday... 

Back to the sweet nursery... It's an easy walk over to Katherine's home here in San Francisco.  She and her husband are expecting their first child and she asked for my help in converting their home office into a space for the baby!
We needed window treatments.  And look at the unusual shape of the room...

But we made room for all of the essentials, like a changing table/dresser and
a comfortable glider chair... This is from Crate and Barrel and is well made.  
(In fact, I have other clients that have two of these chairs in their family room and we just bought new slipcovers for them in a spruce color.  The chairs are seven or eight years old...still comfortable and now they look like new).

Hey, this was really fun styling these shelves and looking at the baby clothes Katherine received at her shower.

Love the Serena and Lily gold reading lamp...an investment, but it makes the room.  

Did you know that blankets for infants aren't used in cribs anymore (to prevent SIDS)?  I just put that there for the photo.
The linen, black-out roller shades from Smith and Noble were the solution for the floor to ceiling, narrow windows and tight space.

The photography art is by Gray Malin.

I think the best part is that Katherine's chair swivels, so that when she is not looking at her baby boy...she has this view...

Yesterday, I went to an IMAX theater by myself (why not?) and saw "Beauty and the Beast"...LOVED it.  I was humming all the way home :)

Enjoy your day!

    1. I think so too, Katie... and hopefully he will be sleeping through the night soon enough with the black out shades!

  2. This is such a pretty place for the new mom and baby to bond. Cute mobile! And I love the colors.

    1. Katherine's mom got the mobile...little animals. We hung is low enough for the baby to see. You only leave the mobiles up for six months. Which makes sense. The art will stay longer so it was professionally fixed to the wall!

  3. What a cute room! And that view!!! Wow. It'll be lovely to watch the sunrise with a sweet babe lulled back to sleep in that chair.

  7. This is such a happy room. I can't bear everything-with-a-trademark-cartoon-character theme rooms. For one thing, it seems so overbearing to decide for your kid what they will like. This room seems ready to adapt to fast-growing tastes.

    1. Yes...all these things can turn into a young boys room with the things he becomes interested in. A neutral background.

  8. What a sweet room, and certainly a challenge with the size and odd shape. But as usual, you did your magic and it's perfect! The gender neutral color yellow looks fresh and new with the touches of black and gray. Their baby will be right at home in the darling room!

  9. Absolutely adore this room and I pinned the chair for when I need to replace our great room chair. Looking forward to your project design entry post. We are about to do a major remodel of our entry so it is fun to see what others have in mind.

  10. Beautiful and tasteful as always ! Love the fresh colors and calming vibes. The furniture fitted like a glove, definately not something an average home owner could have pulled together without your expertise and magical touches .That glider is one of my favorites, so comfortable, it's sold by Crate Barrel but made by Lee Industries, you can order it through them as well( that's the C1601).
    BRAVO Mary Ann !!!!

  11. It's absolutely gorgeous and I adore the art - wouldn't have thought of using Gray Malin art in a nursery and it's perfection! That is one lucky baby!

    1. Katherine's idea! I suggested a modern landscape so it was a great compromise... actually her idea was better than mine.

  12. What color are the walls? Beautiful, bright and neutral

    1. BM Edgecomb Gray. A subtle change from the white walls, but feels warmer.

  15. What a darling little nursery and another fab view. I like the brights without this being too themey. It just seems happy and fun. I had no idea about the blankets in cribs now. Makes sense though. This is a very lucky little baby and all these pieces can so transition easily!
