So many of my cornice go to homes I’ll never see, and its sad to never see them in their forever homes. This neutral cornice is Premier Prints Gotcha Storm traveled all thew way to Canada to be with its new owner.
Imagine my surprise when my client, Brytani, sent me a message to let me know she loved her new cornices. Then an, “oh by the way here’s a photo” that she quickly snapped on her phone. I was shocked to see such a cool woodland nursery featuring grey and orange. If Brytani’s Baby B had been a few years earlier I surely would have used this space when searching for inspiration in my own Modern Woodland Nursery design.
Check out the photos of her inspired nursery, including birch wallpaper on the accent wall and in the bookshelf. Stop by her spot on Project Nursery and leave a vote for her room or a comment to let her know you stopped by.
She made this clever hanger herself and styled in with the cutest grey outfits!
And of course a cornice from Simply Salvage!
A Project For: Baby B
Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
A modern yet cozy, gender neutral, woodland themed nursery with fox paraphernalia as the main attraction. We wanted a fun and bright nursery where we could easily change up the accent colour if we ever were inspired.
While perusing Chapters/Indigo (the Canadian version of Borders) one afternoon, I came across their fall stationery line of foxes and woodland animals. I immediately fell in love with the notepad drawing and knew it needed to be incorporated somehow. I based everything off that drawing of the fox; changing the colour scheme from greys/yellows to greys/oranges.
I like to experiment with different styles over time. We’ve tended to lean more toward the modern style in the past but with the new house we’ve been playing with a more transitional/classic/rustic style. I do love mixing both modern and rustic together as I find it creates a warm and cozy space that will last through trends. My husband was very adamant on maintaining a cozy home that wasn’t too modern.

My favourite pieces would be the Chrome Stag Head that we found a Homesense, the DIY Barnboard Hooks and then finally, the framed Baby Shower Invitation that my best friend designed for us. I loved it so much and I thought it was add the perfect personal touch to the built ins. I also love the wallpapered background in the built-ins.
The best advice I have is to start planning/designing the nursery early so you have time to source things and aren’t stressed. The earlier you start to plan, the more time you have to price match and shop for the best price. Look around your home to see if you can reuse a lot of items, too. Most of the decor items I had already purchased to decorate my home/work office since I tend to gravitate towards the same style quite often.
Accent walls are also great because they add impact and don’t have to be too expensive. It was much cheaper to wallpaper the accent wall than it would have been to buy marquee letters or a custom monogram.
I also found that many items were backordered for up to two months so if you really want a particular item then don’t hesitate to purchase it early if you’re 100% sure you’re going to buy it and the price is right.
Finally, be open to adapting your theme if you find you’re being drawn to other items or if a colour just isn’t working. If you use neutrals as a base and then choose select colours as a “pop” then it’s easy to change it up in the future without redoing everything from top to bottom.
