Reader Room Design: A Chic Nursery for Twins

Today I'm excited to share with you an adorable nursery submitted by Niki Rubin, co-owner of Papery & Cakery, for her baby boy and girl twins. With being a new mom myself, I've enjoyed looking at nursery designs over the last 9 months for ideas and inspiration. Niki did a fabulous job and has been so kind to share the details on how she pulled the look together, along with her shopping resources. Enjoy!

"We moved into our new home last summer with our 4 month old boy/girl twins and this was my very first undertaking {with babies you are a lot more of a time crunch to accomplish things so my usual procrastination didn't work, luckily}. The nursery is painted aqua which is not only my favorite color, but also a great neutral shade {I didn't find out the genders so I needed neutral}. The highlight for me are the giant photos above the bed which we framed in the wide white frames. They were taken by our fabulous photographer Shelley Armenio. She also shot the pictures of the room. Both make me smile! So excited for you and your upcoming nursery plans!" ~ Niki

The framed art to the left of Raya's crib are postcards from an Italian paper shop that I matted with papers from Michaels and framed in Ikea frames.

I am into clean lines and crisp white furniture. The cribs are Oeuf Classic Cribs in walnut. The glider is Pottery Barn Baby and the xoxo pillow is from Pottery Barn Teen {sadly discontinued}. The rug is chevron from West Elm. The mobiles above the crib are Pottery Barn baby.

The changing table is Bellini with knobs changed out with turquoise/aqua ones from Anthropologie. The graphic art above the changer and in the bathroom was designed and printed by me. I run a stationery studio and blog in Boca Raton. I also created the tray on the changing table (see below).
The Pear Mirror is Jonathan Adler, representing our "pair" of babies. The sheep mobile above it is from Genius Jones in Miami and is a great distraction for them while getting dressed! 

Both the giant scrabble letters as well as the adorable Whale tissue box are from Etsy.

Thank you for sharing your fabulous nursery with us, Niki!

    Do you know the name of the paint? I have that xoxo pillow in my daughter's room and was going to paint my daughter's room in an aqua!
