My Version of Heaven

I just experienced the most heavenly room.   

Dina Bandman's nursery at this year's SF Decorator's Showcase has the one thing I love about great design - it tells a story.  I'll cover the showcase in my next post, but I wanted to highlight and discuss this one room today as it REALLY had my heart.

One of the first things I tend to notice when I enter a space is - how does it make you feel? And "Lemondrop Lullaby"  felt like I'd just stepped into a cozy, comfortable, zesty wonderland.  It really just envelops you.

Dreammmmmy wallpaper,  a lucite crib that looked next-level amazing, perfect hardware  (lucite & gold drawer pulls, hold backs), lattice work on the ceiling, a revitalized vintage dresser with tassels, and the most adorable scalloped curtains one could lay eyes on!  FLAWLESS right down to the last detail.

I know guys, take a moment. Just take a moment. 

I'm in LOVE with the crib. There could not have been a better choice. It complements the lemon tree wallpaper (custom designed with de Gournay) to perfection. 


A close up of bead work on the wallpaper. It's great how de Gournay aims to surprise and delight with a new technique each year (last year it was with embroidered wallpaper, this year it's bead work).

These Tiffany wall sconces (designed by Sabrina Landini) are so pretty. Cinched with a ring of mirrored glass. 



I loved the grey gingham in different parts of the room.  Here on the changing tray and inside the closet.



And who wouldn't want to play,  nap or read with baby in this cozy corner?  



The polished gold & lucite hardware throughout the room was great. It made the room feel cohesive and brought a touch of glam. 

Curtain holdbacks & light controls. 



A wardrobe right out of my nursery dreams! The little onesies are adorable. And did you notice the lemon dividers?  I love that they went the extra mile on every last detail.  


Who else wants to now move into this room? Maybe we can petition our way into it! ;-)

And if you want to experience it in person, the showcase runs until May 29th. The house is in a great location too, in the Marina.  Here are all the details.

I was thoroughly inspired by the showcase this year. More in my next post, stay tuned!
