A cheerful and charming abode in Boston.
Baby Delia is a big fan of two things: milk and her big brother, Silas. Her mom, Lindsay Wilkins, is a blogger at HelloHue and the handywoman and creative brains behind her daughter’s not-too-pink nursery.
On straying from the norm
“While I was over the moon about the ruffles and pinks I’d be buying for Delia’s wardrobe, I didn’t want anything too girly or princess-y for her room. I dreamt of a fun space that would feel bright, fresh and playful. I love rooms that can easily transition and grow as the baby does, so that was another goal that I kept in mind.”
On art with meaning
“The painting above the rocker is probably my very favorite thing in the room. I painted it while nine months pregnant, and it was really special to create that piece of art for her. I can see it hanging over her bed in a toddler room or over her desk in her college dorm room, and I hope that it’s something she’ll hang on to and treasure for a long time.”
On the statement rug
“I knew from the beginning that I wanted the over-dyed rug in her room, and it’s the one thing everyone comments on when they step into her nursery.”
On everything coming together
“I was inspired by the bright and fun colors in a print I own by Michelle Armas and took it from there. I wanted to use turquoise as the main color, with accents of metallic gold, pink and yellow. For me, one of the really fun parts of designing a space is seeing how it evolves from an inspiration to a real room. Her actual room is a bit different from my original inspiration, but I adore how it turned out.”
