Nursery & Guest Room Re-Design

Contemporary Nursery, Omaha

The inspiration for this collection of art came from an old Pinterest pin. I loved the organized chaos aesthetic of this art filled corner. To compliment the rooms subtle city and travel theme I searched my extensive postcard collection for images in the room’s pop colors. Instead of buying expensive trinkets and bobbles to remember a place or event I visited I always pick-up an inexpensive, but memorable postcard so I had 100′s of images to choose from. However, I wanted for the main image you see as you walk into the room to be personal and rich with history. I landed on my husband’s family crest, which I tweaked on the computer and turned into a simple one color file. A basic color copy costing $3 meets a $20 oversized frame and custom piece of art is born for less than $25. As for the opposite wall’s largest image I selected an old New York City subway map I owned. It is from the 80′s which is special for a couple reasons. First, it was designed by the famed Italian team Vignelli Associates. Secondly, since it was produced before 9/11 it shows the Twin Towers location and original subway stops at this fallen site. One other cool thing is that this art can grow as we collected more postcards from places we go with our son in the future. In order to show off tons of artwork while maintaining a streamlined architectural appearance that is easy on the eyes, all frames were kept white. As always, keeping in mind my budget I collected all frames from on sale 20-60% off at various locations.
