This Dreamy Nursery Design Was Inspired By “Father of the Bride II”

A cylinder-shaped burl wood side table balances the linear lines of the space, and the hefty weight ensures it won’t tip over easily.

Read on for all the details on how the transformation came together:

The before: Formerly used as an office for Amy’s husband, “cleaning it out was a job.” Working with her design team remotely required sharing “really horrible photos of the space just filled with junk,” Amy recalled.

The inspiration: “My husband and I watched Father of the Bride Part II, and I loved the old-world Los Angeles vibe of the baby nursery.”

Budget: “We started with a vague budget,” Amy explained. “However, I had to do a lot of construction work in the room.”

Main ingredients:

Wallpaper: Tempaper Canopy

Crib: Babyletto Jubilee 3-in-1 Convertible Metal Crib

Chair: Babyletto Madison Swivelglider

Rug: Jaipur Fable Mitzy Rug

Dresser (similar): Modernist Extra-Wide Dresser and Topper Set

Lamp: Bessie Candlestick Floor Lamp

Rocking giraffe: Happy Trails Plush Rocking Giraffe

Biggest splurge: “The wallpaper was the biggest splurge, but it just makes the room,” Amy says, remarking that her daughter “likes to be lifted up to touch the birds.”

Sneakiest save: Leaving the existing carpet in place and covering it with an area rug instead of replacing it with a wood floor, as they had considered, saved so much, Amy explains. Plus, the soft play space was ultimately super functional for her daughter’s early years.

The best part: “The best part is having an oasis,” Amy says. “It’s for her, but it was also for me—a place of calm and quiet in those early days.”

What I’d never do again: Leave major aspects of the process until the third trimester. “The wallpaper was installed the day before I went to the hospital to deliver,” which was “horribly stressful,” Amy recalls.
