A Beautiful Nursery by Dina Bandman

While I don’t have children of my own, I love designing nurseries for my clients. Like powder rooms, nurseries offer the opportunity to have fun in an enclosed space, so you can be a little bolder and braver than you would typically be in say, a living room or dining room. One of the most beautiful nurseries I have come across lately was designed by Dina Bandman for the 2018 San Francisco Decorators Showcase House. The “Lemondrop Lullaby” nursery features show-stopping, hand-painted wallpaper by deGournay as well as matching draperies made from hand-painted deGournay silk fabric.

The palette of mint green and lemon yellow is a lovely departure from the typical color palettes used in baby nurseries. The treillage treatment on the ceiling adds to the garden feeling of the nursery, while the Lucite Plexi-Craft canopy crib infuses a modern touch into the space. You’ll notice the textiles are all neutral–from brocade fabric on the chair and ottoman and rug to the crib linens and the sweet gingham fabric on the backs of the shelves in the custom wardrobe– a wise choice by Bandman which allows the deGournay lemon design to be the focal point of the space. Every showhouse has a standout room and I have no doubt that this dreamy nursery was the star of the show in San Francisco this year!
