It’s not every day we see a floral nursery, but when we do we sure go gaga over it! This bold, black white and grey nursery features a large floral mural wallpaper, creating the perfect accent wall! Mama and designer, Oksana of FOXY OXIE, overcame the small size of the space by going minimal with the furniture and neutral with the color palette – but that doesn’t mean it lacks anything! Quite the opposite, actually. With a few blush and gold accent pieces, it is just the right amount of “girly” while still flowing with the rest of her home. Scroll on to read how Oksana was inspired for the design and brought her vision to life.
Oksana says, Like any normal (and totally sane!) woman, I’ve spent a solid portion of my life pinning photos of babies and nurseries. But when time came to choose a style for our nursery, I couldn’t commit.
First decision: choosing a color palette. I wanted the room to fit the overall classic color scheme in the remainder of the house. Yet, it’s not every day I get to design a space for a little girl, and I definitely didn’t want to lose out on the fun and frills of that experience! But, I reasoned, the square footage of this room is quite small – no bigger than 96 x 126 inches (8 x 10.5 feet). Mixing bold colors and patterns would feel way too chaotic. So, instead, I chose a calm and soothing color palette of gray, black and white with plans of adding bolder elements through the accessories.
I’ve talked ad nauseam on Instagram about wallpapering this wall or that but never progressed beyond daydreaming. The nursery, however, is a perfect place to experiment with more playful motifs, so I was ecstatic to secure a partnership with Walls Need Love to help me do just that.
Two major challenges I faced in this room were the limited square footage and the long and narrow layout. Fitting a crib, a dresser, as well as a glider is out of the question. I had to sacrifice something. Considering that the first is a necessity and the last is my not-so-secret obsession, the dresser had to go. Instead, I worked with ClosetMaid to install a built-in custom closet, complete with drawers to make up for the lack of a storage in the room.
