Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Spaces

Each start of the year marks a new beginning. It is an opportunity to freshen up your surroundings and sources of inspiration. As we welcome 2021, we sought inspiration from Pantone’s colors of the year to create two enlightening, gender-neutral spaces for your little ones. Illuminating  is an uplifting color that encourages aspiration and hope, and also promotes warmth and comfort. Ultimate Grey  gives a firm, strong and dependable feel. Together, these two selections bring a sense of strength and optimism, with a playful and positive attitude.

Illuminating Bedroom

For this bedroom, we brought out our Sheer Canopy in Mustard and placed it on top of a simple white bed. It instantly adds a bright pop of color into the space. Pom Garlands in Oyster & White are asymmetrically arranged on top of the canopy.

We love to add our Star Pillow in Oyster, friends from our Cafe Delice collection and a knitted throw over the bed for a cozy feel. Star Garland in Gold add a magical touch, too!

We also placed our Bunny Library in Ivory in this room, and added some bed time stories the children can read with Puppy Jr. and Lady Doe. You can also see some Mini Pom Garlands in Champagne on the shelf for a subtle accent piece.

Ultimate Grey Nursery

In this nursery, we wanted to create a calm space with little touches of sunshine. We hung up our Dreamy Canopy in Light Grey and placed Pom Garlands in Light Grey and Marbled Pom in Yellow over a wooden crib.

To decorate the space, we combined different cushions with our Star Pillows in Silver & Pale Gold and a throw. A mix of texture and hush tones create a balance for this baby’s sweet slumber and play time with Lala Llama in Beige, Mr. Puppy & Senor Stag.

In both rooms, we featured our Australiana Flora wall decals from @sailah_lane, which are absolutely perfect for these settings.

We hope these spaces encourage your re-decorating this year!
