Red isn’t a color too often seen in nurseries—it’s a bit stimulating for the place in which baby is supposed to slumber—but, when paired with the right hues and doled out in humble doses, I think it can be just right.
This young lady’s lair calls on rustic woods, rich golds (that mirror!), and deep navys to keep it grounded yet sophisticated. A big, boldly printed chair ties together the otherwise not-too-matchy elements of the room, and the felted bird mobile adds a touch of whimsy. (I like how a toss pillow in the shape of our feathered friend gently echoes the over-crib fixture without committing to an out-an-out theme.) To top things off: high-quality, non-fussy textiles make for a certain sense of warm and cozy.
