Hawaiian Themed Nursery Before & After

Draper Residence | December 3, 2013

Erin and I recently completed a nursery recently and I’m excited to share the results with you today! Kids’ rooms are my absolute favorite to design. I get especially giddy when I get to come up with a design for a baby!
Our budget for the room was under $3,000. We needed everything new except the existing dresser.  Here is the before…
Our client wanted a Hawaiian themed room because her family had just moved here from Hawaii. We wanted the Hawaiian theme to be subtle enough that it didnt’ scream “beach!”.  Here is the after!
The bulk of our budget went towards the West Elm Graham glider in performance velvet. It cleans really well which makes it great for a babies room. It’s also SO pretty!
The clients only real request was that a picture of Jesus and an LDS temple be in each of her kids’ rooms. So we chose to buy a print of the Hawaiian temple from this etsy shop.  Next to the glider we added this brass end table from Target. The bla bla doll is from Soel Boutique. The shag rug and floor lamp are from Ikea. I am pretty sure this floor lamp will be appearing in most of my designs. I’m obsessed with it! The white pouf is from Amazon.


The other majority of the budget was spent on custom roman shades done in Schumacher’s Adras Ikat in sky. The windows are the first thing you see when you come in this room so we really wanted to do something that made a statement here.


Like I said our client already had this dresser. She wasn’t totally in love with it but it helped us save room in the budget for other things so we kept it. All it took were some new pulls to totally give it a new life!
The lamp and basket are from Home Goods. The little VW bug I picked up at a hotel in California.
The planter is from PB Teen.
You may recognize this tortoise shell from the Nate Berkus for Target collection. They don’t sell them anymore so we actually bought this one on Ebay. It was green so I just painted it white with some high gloss spray paint.


The baskets are from Ikea, rope knot from Hobby Lobby, VW bug is from ebay, coral is thrifted and the art is from Sugarboo.
We bought the Babyletto crib from All Modern. The crib sheet is from here. The whale pillow is from Urban Outfitters.
We did a little gallery wall over the bed to bring some more of that Hawaiian vibe into the room. Overall we love how it turned out!To find out more about our design services send an email to kirstenkrason@gmail.com
