Parker Perfect! Baby Dominic Axel Jones’ Parker Nursery (Part 2 Of 3)

Tijana Jones Boy Baby Domini Parker Nursery

As usual, part 2 of our coverage of Baby Dominic’s Parker Nursery features a mini-interview with the wonderfully talented mom, Tijana Jones.

Baby Dominic Nursery CribWhat was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
When we found out that we are expecting our first son, we had to switch from pink and girly mindset that we are accustomed to due to our two daughters and turn towards more manly looks. Our inspiration came from the Evolur crib and bedding we purchased. We perceive white color as clean and gentle, navy as masculine and powerful, grey as calming and orange as playful and adventurous.

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
What drew us to Evolur brand are looks and functionality. We shopped at many different price points, anything from inexpensive to very expensive nursery furniture, and no furniture compared to Evolur furniture’s looks. We love the purity and clean feeling of white cribs, yet we had trouble finding white boy cribs that weren’t plain and that had a statement. Evolur Parker crib and line is bold, stylish, modern yet classic and so much more!!!The crib is very well made, and seems like it will last many years as it is convertible, and the attention to details is outstanding. The same with the Evolur Parker dresser. A lot of nursery dressers have shallow drawers, making them not so convenient after the baby is a bit older. Evolur Parker dresser has plenty of drawer space, and the drawers are also deep, making them very versatile for larger clothing items.

Did the room pose any design challenges?
The biggest challenges in our son’s nursery were previous yellowish walls and cream carpet. They didn’t match any aspect of the new nursery color scheme, so we had to redo all of that first which was a lot of work.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
We agreed that we want white furniture and bold nursery. While we couldn’t agree on many pieces of nursery furniture at first,

Baby Dominic Nursery Room Design

we both loved Evolur Parker furniture line. After we purchased the crib and the dresser, selecting accessories that would complement both was easy, and we agreed on mostly everything.

What does this color scheme mean to you?
This color scheme will hopefully represent our son well. White for purity and gentleness, navy for boldness, grey for being grounded and orange for playfulness and adventure.

What accessories did you choose and why?
We chose custom made bedding by GiggleSixBaby from Etsy. The bedding encompasses all of our nursery colors and modern design, and compliments the crib’s luxurious feeling. The wall mural is made by Little Bird Wall Decals from Etsy. They customize the colors of their wall murals and will try to match the colors of any nursery if requested. The wall decals were easy to put up and added the whimsical feel. We also chose a big plush tiger sold on Amazon by Viahart, as a perfect bold addition. For book storage, we used Ikea spice storage racks that we repainted white. The plush rocker and reclining chair is made by Angel Line and purchased from Amazon, and last but not least, we chose a navy white rug that would tie the room together. The navy white plush rug is Little Love by Nojo, also purchased from Amazon.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
Our favorite element is Evolur Parker Crib. It is the center of the whole room. Our favorite design element is the striped accent wall that we painted, as it is a labor of love and patience, and is also fun.

Baby Dominic Nursery Evolur Parker Tall ChestHave you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
Yes, we selected Evolur nursery pieces not only because they are great looking, but because we plan to use them when our son is older too. We will convert the crib to the full size bed when he is older, and since the dresser has large drawers, it will be able to accommodate bigger kids clothes as well. Our furniture is mostly white with blue accents, making almost any colors and themes complimentary.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
The very first word that comes to mind is “Wow”!!!We cannot believe that we created and decorated the nursery that feels so good to be in and we couldn’t have done it without Evolur and all the other makers of our nursery pieces and accessories. We hope our son will always know how very loved he is by his family and that he will feel great in his room!!!

Oh this is an extraordinary nursery! We just stared and stared… and stared at all the lovely photos the incredibly creative Joneses have put together for their baby boy Dominic. It’s one of those rare occurrences – the kind we love experiencing – when one of our cribs finds itself not only a source of inspiration, but also in a nursery that is beyond perfect for its design and style.

Baby Dominic Evolur Parker 5 in 1 Convertible Crib

So it is that the évolur Parker finds itself in this white, navy, grey and orange wonderland that looks like a Bridget Riley painting come to vibrant and sparkling life.

The central piece in this nursery is the Parker crib and the beautiful, hand-painted wall that the Joneses painted themselves as it’s backdrop. Over the crib is spelled Dominic’s name in a semi-formal font. A Parker tall chest and a changing station occupy the spaces to the right and left. The adjacent wall features a window and the opposite wall houses a glider.

The theme and décor of this room are what make it truly a work of art. The color scheme is a perfectly balanced white, navy, grey and orange for a bit of ‘pop’.

 

Animal decals and plain color areas (grey glider, navy-white area rug) are offset by geometric patterns of the furnishings – broad-striped curtains, lock-square patterned baby mattress and clean blocks of color in the form of little storage bins that fit snugly in the changing station.

A little whimsy in the form of a plush tiger by the window adds interest. Other accessories include wall shelves with books, a night lamp and a few toys and knick-knacks. And tying all of the room together is the navy-white area rug.

Tijana Jones says her little lad was extremely active during her pregnancy – he’s the Joneses’ third born – and even a bad virus attack could not keep him from being rather vigorous. Well, now, in his marvellously cheerful, happy nursery, we are pretty sure he’s being a real handful.

Good luck mom and dad. Good luck little Dominic. Lots of love from évolur.

Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 3 of 3)

Ok. So we won’t say “TA-DA!” again. Instead, we will leave you with an excerpt from our Q&A session with mom from mom Stacey Cohen.

“This is our first baby.  Her name is Lily Grace!  I have always adored the name Lily for years now and my grandfather who recently passed away’s name was George so we wanted to keep a G in the family in honor of him who I truly adored.”

Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 2 of 3)

“TA-DA!” again folks! As is custom, in our Part 2 of the 3-part nursery feature of Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery, here is mom Stacey Cohen talking to us about the nursery and what inspired it and what she means to do with it in the future.

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
Pink! Just kidding- well, not really.  I wanted this to be a room fit for a little princess. I had gotten some inspiration off of Pinterest, like I’m sure we all have at some point but honestly it all just kind of came together for me. I would go to HomeGoods a lot and find pieces that worked together.  From the beginning I knew I wanted to do a pink, white and gold theme and I just added on a little bit more from there- I found her flowers and decorations above her crib then everything else fell into place!

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
I didn’t want a baby crib, I know that sounds so silly but I wanted her to have a little princess crib and a beautiful crib that she could grow into and évolur had that! The headboard is what sold me instantaneously!

Did the room pose any design challenges?
No, not at all- I love putting colors and designs together and I’m such a girly girl that I knew this would be no issue at all!

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
Surprisingly, yes. We actually agreed. Usually we have some style differences but we both agreed pink was the way to go and

we loved the gray crib, dresser, and accent pieces and everything else really made the room pop.

What does this color scheme mean to you?
I just thought that pink, white, and gold would be so cute together and it turned out better than I could have dreamed.

What accessories did you choose and why?
Above her bed she has hand crafted paper flowers from Etsy which I LOVE and the flower letters are also from ETSY, the signs on the wall all are from Hobby Lobby and the 3 bookshelves are from Amazon.  It was really important to make sure she had a library (there are at least 30 more books in her closet that don’t fit on the shelves).  Every sign in her room has some sort of meaning about being special, being loved, and just being our everything!

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
My favorite piece in the entire nursery is her elephant balloon tree which is above the changing table.  We had a wedding tree (guestbook signature) for our wedding so it was important that our daughter had one too.

We had everyone sign it at her gender reveal party and then again at my baby shower.  I adore it and it’s from Peachwik.com

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
Yes, absolutely!  I adore the headboard in her crib, I think that when it’s time to convert her crib it will make the most beautiful bed and yes I have already bought her bedding- I couldn’t resist I saw it and it was too cute!  Right now her bedding is princess hippo’s from Pottery Barn Kids with a mobile of princess swans from Buy Buy Baby and I found princess swans at HomeGoods- too cute!  All of the pieces in her room are not “baby” pieces and aren’t things that need to be removed, taken off the wall to make that transition to when she will continue to grow.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Princess-Chic (Ok, I hyphenated, so I cheated) 😊

Well, that’s ok by us Stacey! 😊

Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 1 of 3)

Think warm sunshine, the smell of freshly cut grass and colorful little flowers bobbing their bright heads in a gentle breeze. Well, hello springtime!

And that pretty much sums up Baby Lily Grace’s pretty évolur Julienne nursery.

We can’t help thinking how fortuitous, how appropriate it is for us to be featuring this lovely nursery that is all pink, white and gold in springtime. Because, to our mind, it seems to embody the very essence of what spring is all about.

The nursery is well-lit, thanks to a strategically placed window on the right corner of the wall opposite the entrance to the room. The fact that the room is not overly large coupled with the translucent chiffon drapes on the window, allows for a soft, filtered lighting that accentuates the warmth of the pink walls.

The crib, an évolur Julienne in Antique Mist finish rests against the left-hand-side wall. The wall above the head-boards is festooned with, what has now become ubiquitous, paper flowers from Etsy with Lily’s name in florals. A pink baby mobile hangs over the crib’s animal-print mattress and hippo-appliquéd quilt based on ivory white. Next to the crib, in the corner, are printed baskets with a veritable zoo of super-cute, super-cuddly stuffed animals and a pink, white-polka-dotted baby sized couch. Now, what more could a teensy little baby girl want?

Turns out, mom Stacey Cohen knows exactly what more she could want and makes sure it’s right there.

 

In the corner, by the window and against the opposite wall is a comfortable-looking grey glider and ottoman. The glider is stuffed with… you guessed it – little pink-white themed cushions. Over this are bookshelves for Baby Lily’s reading.

Next to this arrangement and directly opposite the crib is the double-dresser-changing station. The rest of the walls have a tastefully picked collection of wall-pieces.

Says Stacey, “My favorite piece in the entire nursery is her elephant balloon tree which is above the changing table.”

Our favorite? ‘When God made me, he said ‘TA-DA!’

Of all the nurseries we have covered so far, this is one nursery where the crib does not take center-stage. Instead, it simply blends into the décor, serving, as it were, a functional need. The reason for this, it seems to us, is quite simple. Everything – every single piece of furniture and accessory – has been carefully selected with not the nursery in mind but Lily Grace in mind.

It is beautiful, it is chic and it is deeply, deeply Lily Grace.

And we just love it all. TA-DA!
