Inspiration comes from everywhere. Truly. Jessica and I will see something and be instantly inspired to design a room around it....a fabric, a piece of artwork, a pillow...maybe even a clutch. More on that coming up.
On a recent client tile shopping trip, Jessica commented on a bracelet I was wearing. I told her it was from a great company called Noonday Collection. The purpose of this post is not to talk about them, but I believe their mission, along with the missions of several other companies I love (and maybe need to do a post about soon), is too valuable not to share. Here's a brief summary of their mission from their website:
"We partner with talented artisan entrepreneurs to make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. By developing artisan businesses through fair trade, we empower them to grow sustainably and to create dignified jobs for people who need them. Together we’re building a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected."
If that's not something Jessica and I can get behind, I don't know what is!
Now back to the clutch. After said shopping trip, I sent Jessica a link to the Noonday Collection website knowing she would love the rest of their beautiful jewelry and accessories as well. And while there, I couldn't help but peruse it again myself. Which is how I found this pretty little clutch, the Zardozi (currently on sale too!), the inspiration.
I saw it and immediately thought "Oh I would love to design a nursery around this!" And so I did...
With creamy walls, the gray velvet curtains bring so much warmth and softness to the space (And they're blackout, a baby must. Right?) The mix of patterns, textures and metals (yes, you can do that and should!) create a layered look where minimal accessories are needed to finish off the space. I always say light fixtures can make or break a room, and I think this one definitely makes it! Besides, all rooms need a little brass in them :)
These nursery designs are giving me baby fever! And since Jessica and I are done having some of our own, we need to design some rooms for your babies! Send them on! Nurseries and children's rooms are our favorite rooms to design.
Until the next inspiration hits...
