Modernized Circus Themed Nursery

“Lion, and tigers and bears! Oh my!…”

I couldn’t be more pleased with how this nursery came out! You have to be careful to not overdo it when creating a circus themed nursery. To accomplish a modernize look we stayed away from the traditional primary colors and used soft neutral tones. I customized the furniture with a grey paint blended with a carmel stain to tie in the clients windows. The roman shades I designed also tied in with the accent color. I love how the rug by Surya added a pop of color with the orange stripe. We personalized it with a custom canvas centered with the crib, adding a monkey and elephant on each size to complement the subtle theme. Last but not least, we went over the top with the life size giraffe!! Mr. Giraffe was a total hit at the baby shower by the way when I delivered it. (Ask us about our exclusive Baby Registry Concierge.) So much fun!!!

There was also an unexpected little nook in the corner of this nursery. I used that space to put our Gaga Designs custom chair, side table and sconces. Oh, and did you see the navy blue trim out on the ceiling? It highlights the chandelier and it adds a nice surprise without having to paint the entire ceiling.

I loved creating this space. Email us at info@gagadesigns.com or call us at 818-366-8787 to purchase any of the items you see in this awesome nursery.

I love my job!! xoxo

I love designing custom nursery and kids bedding!

 

Oohhh lala…

 

I got an updated bedding book today from Bella Notte! I love working with their unique fabrics in my nursery and kids rooms. My clients love this line so much that we also order it for their master bedrooms. Velvets, satins, laces, linens, and silks… Putting all the different textures together and designing something special for my clients is the best part of my job! Adding buttons, bows, quilting, ruffles, layers, embroidery… sky is the limit for what you can create for your dream room!

 

 

 

 

I selected the Bella Notte Chesapeake crib bedding in my latest celebrity nursery for Tamera Mowry-Housely. 

Contact us for an in-home design consultation so you can touch and feel the latest and greatest fabrics for your home! I must end this blog with more comfy bedding pics for you to fall in love with!

Eastern Europe Installation of a Layered Bed Skirt

I wanted to tag this as “comedy” due to the amateur video, I must admit it’s pretty funny. I promise that as I start to video blog more the quality will get better. I didn’t want my need for perfection to get in the way of sharing with you a quick and easy way to create the look of a two-tiered dust ruffle in just a few minutes. This video was taken while I was working in Eastern Europe with one of my amazing clients. This is how quickly you can change the look of a simple single tier dust ruffle into a fun layered look!
This is an example of a layered bed skirt on a full-size bed, but you can also create the same look with your crib skirt. I wish the lighting was better, however in a few weeks the finished room with be in my portfolio for you to enjoy!

Have a good laugh, on me! More to come.. đŸ™‚ xo SS
