An Eclectic Nursery for Twins
Add Handmade Touches
This sculptural zebra bust, available from Anthropologie, was constructed from recycled cement bags and covered with French newsprint. The twins' grandmother is to thank for the lovingly made crib bumpers, curtains and personalized blankets.
Mom Rebecca Woolf
Designer and mom Rebecca Woolf wanted to create an imaginative space for her twin daughters. The room's design was inspired by the drapery fabric, which features deer, flowers and leaves.
Stash Their Stuff
If there's one thing kids' rooms need a lot of, it's storage. This nursery is a converted home office without a closet, so Rebecca had to get creative. She found this low dresser at a flea market, painted it a fresh minty green and added a pad to the top so it could also function as a changing table.
Color Their World
The nursery's design is as bohemian as the babies' names: Reverie and Boheme. Rebecca filled their room with bright colors and lots of pattern to create an imaginative space.
Customize Beyond Basic Paint
To soften the look of the freshly painted dresser, Rebecca distressed the drawer edges with sandpaper. She then added mismatched glass and ceramic drawer pulls that pull in many of the room's colors.
Create a Sense of Individuality
One challenge with multiples is giving each child his or her own personal space. Rebecca chose a different crib for each baby, but she kept the look cohesive with coordinating bedding.
Keep the Color Coming
In addition to the multi-hued fabrics, rug and artwork, Rebecca included flowering plants and other bright accents, like these adorable baby shoes.
Make It Cozy for Everyone
The room's plush green rug is a soft place for the girls to play it's also a favorite nap spot for the family's dog, Cooper.
Keep It Personal
Framed photos of the twins' names on street signs add a unique custom touch.
Tie the Room Together With Fabric
Hand-sewn bumpers in coordinating fabrics and colors make each crib a cozy place for baby.
