Barbara’s goal in designing this nursery was to make it whimsical enough for a little girl but with the sophistication for her to grow into. Plants, animals, and landscapes are used as a tool to create a peaceful environment. Large oil paintings evoke dreamy landscapes while the acanthus plant stripe of the grass cloth wallpaper makes one feel surrounded and safe. Birds, elephants, and butterflies are part of the magical decor. Lots of texture and patterns create interest. Finally, old is blended with new (antique bird illustrations, old pine chest, modern crib, etc.) to create an eclectic and inviting interior.
