Nursery Design Comes Alive

Over the last nine months, I've been working with some favorite long-distance clients to design the nursery for their first baby, Oliver, who is due any minute.  E-design leaves a lot of interpretive "wiggle room," and often, designers don't have a chance to see the space as envisioned.  Being able to see a design come to life is incredibly rewarding, so I couldn't be more excited with how beautifully they realized my ideas for the Little Guy's special space.

The finishing touches have been made, and now, all it needs is a special little occupant!

We were going for a clean, subtle masculinity.

We commissioned the abstract art from blogstress extraordinaire and up-and-coming-artist, Jenny from MFAMB.

I couldn't resist sending them the tiny moccasins, handmade in Brazil.

It looks great! Is the rocker from S&L? I'd love some reports on how it sits if you've got any. I never like to buy furniture sight unseen.
