Dream Nursery: Lauren Hufnagl from A Lovely Lark

Our Work | October 11, 2012

Next up in our Dream Nurseries Series is a beautiful and bright board designed by Lauren Hufnagl from the blog A Lovely Lark. Lauren’s blog is full of pretty and beautiful things. She is great at finding and sharing the cutest items for children on her blog so I was delighted that she agreed to be a part of this series. Here is how she describes her “dream nursery”. 
“Hi, I’m Lauren of A Lovely Lark where
I share my love of all things little, inspired of course by my own
sweet little two-year-old girl, Violet. First of all I want to thank
Kirsten for having me here on Sixth Street Design School and say
congratulations on your new little bundle! When Kirsten asked me to come
up with my dream nursery, the infinite possibilities swirled through my
head. I could have gone in so many directions, but I decided to go with
what I’m really in love with right now, and that is COLOR. If I had
another little one, I’d love to have a room with clean white walls and
warm wood floors, because the possibilities for colorful and fun
accessories are just endless. 
If you’re looking for color inspiration, there is no
better place to start than with original art, and no artist’s colors
are quite as amazing as Lulie Wallace. My other two places to find
vibrant pieces are Castle and Anthropologie, where I found the perfect
piece of embroidered (heart) art and the most beautiful embroidered
curtains. Even in a child’s space you can go overboard pretty quickly on
saturated colors, so I’ve also chosen a lot of white and soft neutrals
to balance things out. 
Most of the items I’ve chosen ended up being fairly
attainable as far as cost (with a little saving), but it’s a dream
nursery, right?! So there are a few splurges in there. I’ve been
dreaming of this amazing tent daybed for months now. Although in reality
it will never be mine it was my big splurge for this dream space. It
would be the perfect space for tummy time, play time, story time, and of
course to curl up and snuggle for naps. Sigh, perhaps a DIY? Thank you
again to Kirsten for giving me the opportunity to create such a fun
project. I hope you’re soaking up your free days with your little
Thanks Lauren
