Interior Designer

Ariel Okin

“This nursery is sophisticated yet still filled with wonder, a key element for any child’s space. From the silly wildlife dancing on the walls to the sheep shaped chair placed under the bookcase (sized just for baby as they grow older), the room maintains an elegant yet approachable feel that can adapt with parent and child throughout different stages in life.”

“Schumacher’s Singeries wallpaper is the star of the room: evoking ‘Jungle Book’ vibes, these little monkeys set the color palette, and bring mischief and whimsy to a unisex nursery.”

“Light green is a theme throughout: the Sleepi crib in mint green blended so perfectly with the Babyletto gelato dresser. I particularly fell in love with the delicate detailing on the Odelia bone inlay stool, also swathed in a frosty green hue, used here as a side table next to the glider. The shade works perfectly for a unisex nursery, and plays off the colors in the Schumacher paper so beautifully.”

“I was inspired by the playful elements in the room – I particularly love the Fiona Walker animal heads; they add so much cheer and personality.”
