Welcome back to my weekly series, Retro Knox Designed! I'm very excited about this girly nursery totally designed around this hand painted carousel horse.
This 1984 S&S woodcarvers, hand carved, hand painted, carousel horse is an incredibly unique piece the set my mind spinning into a full blown nursery mode. My goal, in my interiors, is to include at least one unexpected piece. I love the bows, the colors of pink, blue, and gold, and the fact that it's hand carved.
50" W x 40" H
A few chips in the paint for character.
I instantly wanted this wallpaper from domesticate. She's an incredible pattern designer and I basically love every design she creates.
blush linen pillow for the glider with a classic blue monogram...gorgeous
crystal bookends please...
If I had a good the nursery would "shine bright like a diamond." These hooks are just darling enough without being too baby.
Every mama needs a comfortable and good looking glider.
This dusty blue crib (affordable) pulls out the blue from the carousel horse.
Keeping with the equestrian vibe, without getting to literal and theme-y, let's add a leather mirror.
Classic floor lamp that could easily move to any room in the house.
Finally, let's add a traditional beautiful piece to this mix. You need the warmth against all the painted furnishings.
I just adore this nursery. And you get the design for free!
