On March 2nd, Caroline and her husband welcomed their baby boy, Croi (pronounced Croy), and he is THE cutest! In case you missed Croi's birth announcement, click here. If you’ve been following along on Instagram or read our Nursery Design Scheme blog you know that Caroline has been planning the nursery for months now and we are so excited to finally share it with all of you!
Starting with a pinboard and evolving into a more elaborate design scheme, it was important to Caroline that the entire space be functional first and foremost, while also feeling like a natural extension of her home. From using our CITRA Denim Wallpaper to Restoration Hardware’s High-Back Slope Arm Upholstered Glider to Interior Define's Shay Rug, everything came together to create such a cozy environment to bring her baby boy home to. After going back and forth between our CITRA and KETUT wallpapers, she ultimately decided on CITRA because it is bold but delicate and has a nice open feeling, as you can see in the photos!
Caroline spent a lot of time researching the best furniture options for their nursery, knowing that since the textiles, wallpaper, and art would be telling a blue color story, she wanted the rest of the room to celebrate natural wood tones. It was easy to fall in love with the Ramos Dresser from Noir which can be used as a changing table until baby Croi gets older. Deciding on the chair, where everyone will be spending most of her time while in the nursery, was a challenge since it had to be both comfortable for nursing AND beautiful. After weeks of searching, RH's High-Back Slope Arm Upholstered Glider and matching ottoman in the Perennials Nickel Performance Linen was the final choice! For the crib, the Hampshire White Crib from Crate & Barrel was a great option to keep things simple.
Last but certainly not least was the rug which has a huge visual impact on the entire room. Caroline searched high and low to find the perfect option and landed on the Shay Rug from Interior Define. Made by artisans and part of their new collection of rugs, this beautiful textured white rug works effortlessly with the other elements in the nursery. It’s also the perfect balance of soft and sturdy - no scratchy rugs for baby! The Shay Rug is available in two colors, and lucky you, it’s part of the Interior Define’s Living Room Event going on now until April 13th.

In addition to our CITRA Denim Wallpaper on the walls, our hand-printed fabrics TITIK WHITE / NATURAL and GAMAL GREY / OYSTER were made into pillows and styled throughout the space. The Aerin Hunlen Table Lamp in Shelling Grey sits atop a reclaimed wood stump from AIM Handmade and adds the perfect amount of lighting for early mornings wake up calls and late-night feedings. Tying in with the other framed photography around her home, Caroline added a Steven Clouse piece as statement artwork.
Located under the large window, Crate & Barrel’s Storeagepalooza II Toy Organizer in white allows Croi's new furry friends to be on full display and organized. Crate & Kids Beaumont Book Shelves display the family's favorite bedtime books in a minimalistic way. The Circa Lighting Bistro Small Round Chandelier adds more subtle lighting and is already one of Croi's favorite things to gaze at. To support the artisan community, Caroline included artisan-made Connected Goods Woven Storage Baskets to store burp cloths, bibs, extra blankets and toys.
Caroline's whole family has been settling into the newborn phase nicely, spending a ton of time in Croi's nursery putting all the beautiful furniture and objects to the test.
