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!!!

Parker Perfect! Baby Dominic Axel Jones’ Parker Nursery (Part 1 of 3)

Baby Dominic main banner

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. Baby Dominic Nursery Decor

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.

Sweet Dreams are made of this… (Part 2 of 3)

Naz Helms, as we mentioned in our previous installment of our feature of Baby Eloise Wesley’s évolur Fairbanks Nursery in Winter White, has had an interesting journey to motherhood.

“I lost two jobs during the course of my pregnancy.” Says Naz. “The first was a start-up that shut down, the second happened after I got a new job and told them I was pregnant. Having shared the story with friends it seems like it happens to a lot more women than you would think. Unfortunately, it is very hard to prove as discrimination. In retrospect, it was a blessing in disguise, because I didn’t have pressure to return to work after my 6 weeks of disability ended.”

Looking at what Naz has done with the baby’s nursery in the context of what she says above, Naz’s positive disposition is so obvious! No wonder we fell in love with the nursery! Anyway, here’s our standard Q&A and we’ll be back shortly with our picture album.

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
I’m all about white, light, bright and cheery. I wanted to make sure I felt refreshed whenever we were in the room which will be more and more as Eloise grows.

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
We wanted a product that would be durable. Evolur also gave us a nice clean look that wasn’t overly gaudy.

Did the room pose any design challenges?
Our nursery doesn’t get a lot of natural sunlight so I wanted to stick to light colors to ensure that it would be as bright as possible.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
Luckily my husband always lets me decide when it comes to decor. He has his opinions but usually likes what I do. He’s well trained 😉

 

What does this color scheme mean to you?
Sticking to whites and greys keeps the room clean and bright. I wanted to incorporate the wood accents to bring the outdoors in and ensure that it wasn’t too sterile looking.

What accessories did you choose and why?
I love natural materials. Plastic things have their place but I generally prefer wood, fabric etc. I also love bringing a vintage vibe to meet our modern styles.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
Always the plants. I love plants in any room. Walking into a room makes me feel like I can breathe better. 🙂

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
Because the bones of the room are gender neutral it is possible to that we keep the furniture for our future babies and transition Eloise into a different bed until we no longer need a crib. Finally, of course, we will make use of the toddler and full size variations.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Fresh

Sweet Dreams are made of this… (Part 1 of 3)

It has been a while since we featured the évolur Fairbanks Collection in our Beautiful Nurseries category. The last time Fairbanks featured in our blog was…well, never. So today, we are righting that wrong. Thanks to Naz Helms.

Naz has had quite the journey into motherhood. But we are going to save that for our 2nd installment of this feature and you can read about that in her own words. This post, however, is all about Baby Eloise’s Fairbanks Nursery.

Sturdy, dependable, solid. This defines the Fairbanks Collection. The collection features routed molding and sculptured elements that hark back to the time of our early settlers. As with our other collections, the style is transitional and you can match it up with pretty much any type of décor and theme. Naz loves natural elements and bright, cheery colors. This is clearly reflected in the nursery she has put together for Baby Eloise.

The room does not get a lot of natural light. To offset this, Naz used whites and greys to keep the nursery clean and bright. The walls are a warm grey. The flooring is wooden and an off-white rug covers most of the free space in the center of the floor. The solitary window, overlooking the backyard is adorned by white lace curtains.

The wall adjacent to the window features the crib in winter white. The matching double dresser and changing station is placed against the opposite wall with a glider and a couple of side-tables situated conveniently by it. A couple of wooden wall shelves, a baby mobile featuring cutesy sheep over the crib, colorful soft toys by the dozen – some on the shelves, some on the crib and some stowed in a pair of pretty, white and grey rattan-like baskets – and greeting cards by the dozen (too!) – on the window sill, on the side-tables and on the shelves – adorn the nursery. A large mirror, with a unicorn head looking into the crib, hangs over the dresser/changing station. A hanging basket of pothos and a cactus add a touch of brilliant green and complete this sweet and bright nursery.

Our next article features a Q&A with Naz Helms. See you soon!

Be the Change!

 

The DOM Family has recently partnered with Jersey Cares to leverage their volunteer network in order to continue our ongoing effort in promoting a better life for communities and families in need.

We have always believed that it is important to commit to long-term causes. It’s a natural and organic extension of our mission, that simply put, states:
“Our mission is to give all babies the best possible start in life through a product line of smart and stylish essentials for babies, children and parents.” In its essence, it simply means giving the best possible that we can to families. With the disparity in wealth higher than ever before, an enormous part of our citizenry is in desperate need of basic essentials for a decent life – food, clothing, shelter, medical and legal aid and education. The only way these can be provided to them is by lending them a helping hand in any of the multitude ways possible.

Jersey Cares is a nonprofit organization that recruits and engages volunteers in rewarding, effective efforts that address community-identified needs. They partner with local non-profits to identify needs and implement volunteer projects to meet these needs. We look forward to a fruitful association with them in the coming years!

Baby Milana’s Windsor Palace (Part 2 of 2)

The part 2 of our coverage of Baby Milana’s Windsor nursery features a mini-interview with mom Jennifer Ramos. Here she is to tell us about what she wanted, her inspirations and how this lovely nursery came about.

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
I was inspired by the crib and based my design and decor around it.

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
What drew me to evolur was the design of the crib and how well made it looked for the price.

Did the room pose any design challenges?
The room did not pose any design challenges it is the perfect size for the furniture.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
After looking at several different crib brands I became very frustrated and asked my husband to help me look . The first crib he found was from evolur when he showed me I fell in love.

What does this color scheme mean to you?
I love the color scheme its very soft and pretty. The crib is a beautiful soft beige color with a hint of rustic it goes with any color scheme.

What accessories did you choose and why?
I choose the dresser to go with the crib because I love the detail of the rope that goes across it.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
I don’t have a favorite piece or design element because I am truly in love with the entire crib and dresser.

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
The crib will eventual be her toddler bed.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Peaceful. Its so beautiful the colors are so pretty its innocent.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Part 2 of 3)

The second instalment of our coverage of Baby Avery’s bohemian chic nursery features Yvette King’s journey in her own words. Without any further ado, here she is:

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
I wanted my daughter’s nursery to have a “Midsummer’s Night” inspired, dreamy and bohemian feel.

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
I loved the simplicity of the crib. I wanted something simple and elegant.

Did the room pose any design challenges?
Her room is quite small, so we didn’t want to fill it with too much clutter, only the essentials.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
My husband let me take the lead.. wise man 😉

What does this color scheme mean to you?
I chose a light gray paint to give the room an airy and calm feeling. The white furniture complimented the paint color really well.

What accessories did you choose and why?
Baby pink and coral bohemian accessories added a cute pop of color to her white and grey nursery. My mom made the custom floral letter hanging on the wall.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
During my second trimester (when I had tons of energy) I decided to sand, prime, and paint the vintage dresser I found at a garage sale. It just needed some TLC and new hardware to make it a fabulous changing table.

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
I love that the crib and bookshelf will stay with her until she gets older.

Something interesting that happened before, during or after the pregnancy?
My husband and I had a long road to pregnancy, which made this process that much more special for us.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Dreamy!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Part 1 of 3)

All our cribs are transitional in design. Effectively, this means, that your imagination is the limit, as far as theme, colors and décor are concerned. All the nurseries we have covered in this category over the last several months have been stunning, to say the least. Beautiful harmonies with a few bold touches – our évolur moms and dads have spun magic with our Auroras, our Juliennes and our Windsors.

Photo by: Kaysen Photography (www.kaysenphoto.com)

This week, the star of this particular series is Yvette King’s baby girl Avery Elizabeth King’s Sawyer nursery. Our Sawyer Collection is possibly the most unobtrusively elegant collection amongst all our collections. And this week, we’ve discovered that it also lends itself wonderfully well to bohemian chic décor. And this discovery is all due to the very lovely Yvette King.

The nursery features a warm and very light grey walls. The Sawyer finish in use is Distressed White. Everything else in this room are breathtaking splashes of pure, luminous colors. The highlight of the nursery is a floral monogram – A for Avery. Just look at that! Isn’t it magnificent?

We don’t want to give away too much. This nursery has to be seen. No words or descriptions can possibly do it justice. On Wednesday, you will hear all about the nursery from Yvette King herself! So, wait for it!
