Interior design project for a three-month old baby girl’s room
Rachele was born on April, 7. This news reached me when I was at Milano Design Week. At that time her parents were looking for a new house. I came forth immediately: my gift to her will be a new bedroom!
I came into the room at 10 AM and at 6 PM the nursery was ready for Rachele, decorated and clean. If I did all of it by myself? Not really! Grampa Carlo couldn’t stay still for one moment, so everything was more fun.
Bedroom for a baby girl | the wall colours
For the walls I chose a geometric design made with pastel colours: I followed Color Trainer Young’s guidelines, by Francesca Valan for Color Design Lechler.
For the first three years the main activities of the child in his/her room are sleeping and playing. The child’s attention is given to objects and people. The space should be recognizable and visually marked..
Rachele’s room isn’t too bright, so I chose to use four soft colours: powder blue, yellow, green and pink.
The colours are clear, and so are the geometric designs on the walls: a green house to embrace the bed, a pink stripe to separate the play area from the changing table, an arrow pointing to the centre of the room and another that frames the changing table and encompassing a shelf, which Marianna uses when changing the baby.
Bedroom for a baby girl | the accessories
Favoured by Maison du Monde’s sales, I bought three frames with prints, a magazine rack, a table lamp and a star-shaped battery light net. I added the Thun’s letters that Rachele already had, and the walls became animated with lights and colours.
The shelf and the lamp in the middle of the room are by IKEA.
Next to the changing table I put a pin in the wall, so that Marianna, when she’s changing Rachele, can put a hanger with the dress.
Bedroom for a baby girl | the gym area
At the end, what in my opinion is the centerpiece: Rachele’s gym area.
I spent one hour with my trusted carpenter and, using scrap pieces from his lab, we made this wooden mini-gym. All you need are 4 wooden strips and a stick; a few holes, a few meters of string, a toy to hang and the baby gym is ready.
Under the baby gym is a wonderful felt ball rug from Sukhi, which I will soon talk to you about.
In short, I had a lot of fun decorating Rachele’s room, and I’m very proud of the result.
