this room, all grown up.
by victoria comment



i’m rather obsessed with christine dovey’s modern baby nursery. except i want it all for grown-up me — SO I’M GONNA MOCK ONE UP. i can’t quite swing the price of an original serge mouille swing arm light fixture let alone a pair, but maybe i could fake it, with a couple of these fixtures. sorry, stuffed animals, you’re going to have to be left behind for baby. i need to make room for some adult cushions — like these new furry friends. and i know where to get a lovely white pouf, and a flokati rug. now i’ve got to contend with finding that gorgeous french daybed. sigh. this is going to be as close as i come to this little slice of decor perfection. bravo, christine dovey on one very beautiful room!


sources: 1. i couldn’t find ‘love’ (story of my life) but i did find this ‘goodnight’ wire sculpture from anthropologie, and that works just fine; 2. a pair of IKEA PS 2012 black wall fixtures (just $49 bucks each!); 3. this pale pink luxe faux fur pillow; and 4. the gray ombre luxe faux fur pillow, both from anthropologie work nicely in place of the furry stuffed friends; 5. i really love the reproduction french daybed christine used from black rooster decor, but perhaps this louis daybed from ballard designs is just a tad less if we’re keeping to a budget version here; 6. serena & lily’s moroccan white leather pouf is ideal; and 7. their white flokati rug is just perfect, too; and ONE LAST THING — 8. i’m going to spring for the tom dixon etch shade pendant lamp. why not, i’ve saved everywhere else!

  1. Love the room! It looks so cozy :) Hope this isn’t misguided, but in the collage perhaps you meant Imitation: the sincerest form of flattery? Mockery doesn’t capture the beautiful translation you made from one room to another.
    I always look forward to seeing your posts show up on my feed; the spaces are gorgeous!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this!! I’m always pinning beautiful nurseries – not for a baby, since I don’t even have one – but because some of them are just so lovely that I want them for me :). I pin them on one of my secret boards so no one thinks I’m preggo!

  3. Hi Victoria,

    Your email saying I won the the Nude Audio speaker was a pleasant surprise since I never win anything. LOL You made my day! I will email you with my info. And I love this room design and your “get the look” suggestions.

  4. Thank you so so much for featuring my nursery- beyond honoured!!!!

    Some sourcing info:
    The sconces are actually knock-offs and were purchased at Black Rooster Decor, as was the daybed. And the word art was ordered through Gleena Ceramics:)

    Thank you again and love how you transformed the room into such a beautiful adult space!
