PROJECT // A Not-So Neutral Twin Nursery

Maria Baer

Let me introduce you to my new favorite room in our house…our twin’s nursery! We are less than two weeks away from our due date and this room has been such a labor of love. We still do not know the gender of our babies, but that didn’t mean that I had to keep this room neutral, did it?

I have never been one to shy away from color when it comes to decorating my home, so our nursery was no exception! The biggest design challenge was taking this relatively small space and making it work for not one, but two babies. That second crib really threw us for a loop.

I knew I wanted to have an element of whimsy in the space and wanted to bring that in with wallpaper. I searched and searched for a statement print that I could base the rest of the room around and landed on Hunt Slonem’s bunny wallpaper. When I saw this paper up at Drapery Street in the Design Center, I knew I had to have at least a touch of it in the nursery.

This was also the first time I have ever painted walls white (Pure White by Sherwin Williams) in our home, so I pulled in my signature stamp of color for the furniture and added a dark chair rail (Inkwell by Sherwin Williams) to break up several of the walls.

Without any further ado, here is our not-so-neutral twin nursery.

And don’t fret, those frames are part of the wallpaper! We did not hang dozens of frames above these cribs (as a few people have asked when seeing pics).

Clear bookshelves were the perfect use of this small wall just inside the door. And we can’t forget color-coded books (at least until the kids can reach them).

Twin Nursery <> Before

And of course, I can’t leave you without a before and after. Prior to becoming our nursery, this room was my office and it hadn’t been updated in almost 8 years. It wasn’t a space that inspired me at all anymore, but I strayed away from updating it knowing that I would completely convert the space if we had kiddos. So, it stayed this shade of green that I chose years ago and served as a space to craft, work and store all sorts of items.

And now….now it is truly the room I never want to leave! Which is great, because I hear we have about 20 diapers to change a day in our very near future. :)

There are just a few final touches that I am waiting on until we bring our babies home. This leather ottoman in Fuschia if we have one or more girls and artwork (for boys and girls) from Etsy.

Otherwise, I’d say we are READY for our little Pair of Baers!!
