ROOM TOUR: JAIME KING'S NURSERY
When Jaime King and her husband found out they were pregnant with #2, they set out to turn their sunroom into a nursery that would double as an office and a hangout space for their family -- and it turned out gorgeous!
"I realized pretty quickly that what was lacking on blogs and Pinterest was how modern parents can incorporate a growing family in a smaller space. And staying in our home – an historical mid-century house with incredible energy – meant making our sunroom-turned-nursery beautiful, elegant, and chic… and without an overflow of toys that would go ignored. Kids don’t need a million things to have fun."
"The RH Baby & Child design team really helped bring our vision to life in a spectacular way. It was really cool working with them to make the Restoration Hardware aesthetic fit with our household. I didn’t want a space overrun by kids – I wanted to maintain my identity and a sense of calmness, which for us is a clean, zen environment to live in and raise our children. We wanted to stay true to the integrity of our space – a mid-century, all-glass room with an indoor-outdoor feeling that makes you feel so connected to nature."
"We’re artists – just because we’re having a boy doesn’t mean everything has to be blue. So the first thing in the room was a daybed in a really pretty pink velvet. We’re moving into a time where we need to stop delegating color to sex. Pink doesn’t have to mean you like girly things, but if you do love girly things, so freaking what?! It’s the color of love and we wanted warmth in the space. Plus, it brought out the pink from the marble and went well with the leather chairs and ottoman."
