The charming world of Beatrix Potter and her animal friends inspired this nursery. The mother-in-waiting chose a pale aqua color for the walls. Accents of yellow and green were used so that the room could welcome either a baby boy or girl.
Mimicking the illustrative style of Beatrix Potter, I set about creating a fantasy garden that would serve as a backdrop for this tranquil room. Muted washes of green fading into distant blue, whimsical trees flanking the window and scattered field flowers made you feel as though you were walking into a story book when stepping into the room.
The room took shape as the furniture began to arrive. An upholstered rocker nestled into a corner becomes a cozy spot for a late night feeding.
Mrs. Rabbit and her three 'good little bunnies', Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail are painted under the window. Peter has hopped off and gotten into mischief in Mr. McGregor's garden!
This wonderfully painted furniture served as the inspiration for the room. Aren't these pieces grand? These and other luxury designs can be viewed at Posh Tots. They were the inspiration for the room.
With everything in place, all that was needed was the guest of honor to arrive. Will it be a little boy? or a little girl? Either way, this baby will enjoy a stunning nursery.
