I've been seeing dark walls popping up everywhere and I have to say, I'm definitely digging the trend. While they can seem heavy, if paired with the right accents, they add sophistication and drama. I'm not sure I would have considered such a feature for a nursery, but after seeing this nursery I'm totally on board.
Take a look ...
A gorgeous crib painted gold makes a statement and coordinates beautifully with the other accents found around the room.
The end tables are actually file cabinets with a skirt and glass top to remedy the lack of storage situation, a super smart and stylish move. Those wonderful bookshelves are actually IKEA picture ledges painted with the same wall color.
The room isn't a big one, but the white sofa you can see a little bit of was a smart solution. I am totally in favor of a soft place to sit or even rest comfortably if needed when it comes to nurseries. This fits the bill perfectly.
The armoire is a lovely antique with a mirror added on front to reflect light, which offsets the dark walls a bit, another clever trick. The bedding is simple and stylish and looks to be the most comfortable place for a little one to sleep. But the rug, oh the rug! Antique Persian, so luxe! Mom, Meg, is a designer by trade which might help to explain her love of such treasures.
