When it comes to nursery decor, a vintage look is always a sweet way to welcome home a baby—soft and simple with a little bit of nostalgia—perfect for baby.

When designing a nursery, I always try to incorporate a little bit of something special. Finding a memento from a family member or even from your favorite antique shop always adds that special touch to the nursery.

Vintage style also provides the perfect color palette. Soft creams and tans with sprinkles of pale roses and faded blues round out the perfect color story.

One of my favorite rooms of the house is the office.. or what I call the “creative” space. A place in your home where anything goes. The place where inspiration is cultivated and creativity is celebrated. Often the desk or work table is full of personality. Lots of papers and trinkets that let you know just a little bit more about the person who lives there. Have fun with your creative space. Make it your own style. Break all the rules.. why not?
There are so many ways to create storage or cubbies for all your projects. Old vintage drawers, open shelving for all to view, or keep it simple with no clutter at all.
Each work room or office space usually has some eclectic element because it is one of those spaces that is continually evolving. It is never static. Books stacked on the floor.. again.. why not?
There is always an element of discovery when surveying a creative space. Find your creative space and let your ideas begin to flow.

It’s always great any time you can create more than one area in a room for people to relax and enjoy. It gives the room so many more options for use and also provides options for creativity. The daybed is a nice solution to having a bed and a crib in the same space; it provides another sleeping space in your home and can be an inviting place for mom or family to hang out with baby. The daybed then can be the transition for your child from crib to big bed later on.

Daybeds can be used to save space in a small room. When you don’t have room for a chair, the daybed feels more like a small couch and is a sweet spot to cuddle or read a book with friends.

As time goes by, you can update the daybed with a more sophisticated look. Bold patterns make this daybed perfect for any room in the house.

Recently in my own home I have been adding texture to my walls with grass cloth and also wallpaper. The easy part about wallpaper is there is so much out there to choose from and wallpaper can really “make” the room. It is the added layer that makes for a fabulous backdrop for a fantastic room.
Sometimes covering everything is actually “less” busy and a more calming way to add pattern to a room.
Simple pattern can be a very “black and white” solution for modern graphic wall treatments
Choosing a certain style of wallpaper especially from another “era” or more vintage can set the “tone” for a room.
Using wallpaper for just one area in a room makes for “wall-art” statements that can be bold and engaging.
Bravely add color to a “common” area can be fun with wallpaper. I have loved adding wallpaper to small bathrooms, closets to create a ‘jewel-box” effect when entering special spaces.
Glam it up with metallic or specially treated wallpaper. Surprise your room with wallpaper.
Check out some of Annette’s favorite wallpaper collections:
There is nothing more classic that the stripe. It adds the final touch or even the bold backdrop to any design equation.
The unexpected combination of bold yellow, black and tan layered with a vignette of prints. Character building.
Busy up your room with a repetitive stripe in the same color over and over. Busily fantastic.
Simplify with a simple colorway in a wide stripe with little detail. Grounds any room, wall or accent area. Draw a straight line to design success with the use of stripes in your decor.
