Sweet Lullaby

Nurseries are created for babies but best designed for parents, says Anna-Louise Wolfe, who created a soothing second floor “crib” with masculine and feminine elements to make it suitable for children of any gender. A floral vine wallcovering with blues and greens establishes the palette, which is punctuated by white furnishings such as a Jenny Lind-style crib and a white rattan cabinet with a pagoda shape. “There’s a subtle Asian thread that ties the whole space together,” says Wolfe. In case mom or dad wants company, Wolfe incorporated a pair of plush matching lounge chairs atop an antique rug with a floral pattern. It’s layered over a larger sisal rug, which coordinates with rustic baskets. “They add texture and a bit of masculinity,” she says. But just a touch. Accents such as an antique brass chandelier, blue-and-white Chinese porcelain table lamps with gathered pleated shades and vintage Venetian white shellback grotto chairs with blue velvet cushions reinforce that this is mom and dad’s domain. “I wanted it to feel light and happy,” Wolfe explains. “Anybody would be happy to sit there with their baby.” —Tate Gunnerson
