Nursery Room Tour: 10 Photos Inside A Cozy Twin Gender Neutral Nursery

Henry and Marie are two lucky babes. That’s all I can say. 

I was thrilled when Susan, the lovely designer {yes, in real life!} of this beautiful nursery and mom to twins shared the nursery. Susan, founded Nesting, the premier destination for baby and children’s interior design. And well, her design skills shine when it came to putting together her very own nursery. You may have spotted it floating around Pinterest. The details, the color palette, the cribs; it’s all just perfection. Susan has a mainly traditional style with modern elements which she mixed in the nursery here and there. She wanted to buy handmade pieces and support local and independent artist when it came to the nursery whenever possible. Can I just say that I am dying over the vintage changing dresser? oh. em. gee. 

After she received the shock of her lifetime, the news that she would be welcoming twins, the nursery she has been dreaming up for years had to change some. However, the neutral decor was always part of the plan. Her design advice?

“Monochromatic schemes can be so elegant and interesting, as long as you have depth of color. Don’t be afraid to use non “baby” paint colors-when mixed with the right elements the room will still have a delicate feel. Also, remember that your style does not have to end at the nursery…the room can be an extension of your home decor! Until they are older and have their own opinion about it, the decor is for your enjoyment!”

After the jump, take a peek inside this oh-so-pretty space photographed by Courtney Apple.

    One of my favorite things done in this nursery is how the radiator becomes a beautiful shelf. I love how it is covered and becomes the perfect place for pretties.

    Let's talk about the cribs. Even though they are brand new, they have the adorned vintage feel we all love. This nursery is a great example of how less really is more!

    Every nursery needs a place for books! I love the simple white book ledges that become decoration in the room.

    The soft color palette just works so well. Forget being bland, Susan shows us just how to make pretty whites and a soft gray work.

    The custom embroidered artwork over the cribs is a great alternative to prints or framed art.

    Always a nice touch! A tip: color coordinate them to match the room! Look for them at thrift stores and even on Etsy.

    This vintage changing dresser is such a charming focal point. It's styled with a hobnail lamp I am just smitten over. Don't have room for a changing table? Create one with a dresser.
