Margaux and Max were expecting their second child and reached out to me to help them transform their master bedroom into a finished space for them as well as carve out a special place for the new baby. We ended up transforming the closet into to a nursery nook and designed the rest of the room to be a calming space that reflected Max and Margaux’s modern-minimal-artful lives. First up is their side of the room…Max, being an incredible photographer, has probably the best collection of family photos anyone has ever seen so we created a gallery wall that they can add on to when the new Wanger arrives. The room is filled with personal touches, handmade pieces like the wall hanging from Boho Loft, the knit baby blanket from Yarn Works Co. and the mobile I created for them myself. I also designed them a bench that was custom made for the tight space and sits at the foot of the bed.

I really wanted to make the baby space feel special (and not like we just stuck the baby in a closet) so wallpaper was the answer. The black and white animal print has just the right amount of whimsy for baby but the illustrative style and monochromatic palette fits in seamlessly with the rest of the room as well. We had the long floating shelf custom made to match the two small floating shelves I found at Target. Soft white baskets supply a lot of easy reach storage as well as the large lidded floor baskets. One of Max’s art prints titled “Mother & Child” sits above the changing table. The Stokke Crib is such a beautiful space saver that will grow with the baby with attachment parts, I love the round design and finally one of my original mobiles hangs above it, completing the space.

Using Max’s pink cloud print as a jumping off point, I made the rest of the space bright and open, layering soft textural pieces like the woven blanket, soft ottoman and sheepskin rug. Hanging planters brought in some kid proof greenery (anything they can’t reach is considered kid proof in my book), baskets serve as more easy access storage, and how about that beautiful rocker? I wouldn’t mind spending a few hours here. There are so many things that can feel unsettled and chaotic when you bring a new baby home and being able to give Max & Margaux a special space that is ready for the new family member will hopefully make that transition just a bit easier. If you want to get a take a peek at the before photos check last week’s post here.

Love the nursery nook and new space. Since their space/situation is similar to mine, can I ask what closet/storage solution did they utilize for their clothing items, since the closet is now the mini nursery? Curious to hear ideas!
Hi Olivia, they just used other closets outside of their bedroom.
Love max & margeaux! Is it possible to get a link to that rug or ways to narrow my search on the website? There’s so many! Thanks!
The rug is one of their one of a kinds but if you search nahavand you’ll find similar. X
Beautiful!! The link for esalerugs just goes to their homepage…but by any chance do you know the name of the rug so I can search for it? I love it! Thanks.
oops, for some reason I just saw the comment before. nevermind!!
That is really beautiful! I loved having my babies in my room (well, they were actually in my bed) and this is such a nice way to share a space.
Really beautiful spaces! Would you mind sharing the source for the ceiling light in their bedroom? Thank you!
Ah yes sorry its from here. https://shop.onefortythree.com/

Oh my gosh! I’ve been drooling over the Drommen bed for a year. I’m buying it this summer after we move to our new state!
Beautiful room! Where is the ceiling light fixture from? I would love the info! Thanks so much!

so beautiful! as an etsy seller myself, i cannot thank you enough for representing small business owners!
This is such a lovely space! Would you mind sharing the size of the hanging planters you used? And whether they are the hemp or leather cords?
They are the hemp cords. Will have to double check on sizes…
I lived in the house for years before Max and Margaux. I loved how I had it done, very retro, 1940’s, but I must say you have transformed it into current times and their minimal tasteful style. It is so beautiful, and the baby closet is incredible.
That is amazing! I would have loved to have seen it. Thank you for your kind words. x
This room has been such an inspiration to me in creating my own nursery at home. What type of paneling is that on the walls?? and what color did you use in painting this room??
Thanks a million! Andra
where is the end of the bed bench from? Im obsessed with the style!
I designed it and had it custom made
Hi Sarah! Could you please tell me where the leather basket that is under the nightstand is from? Thanks a bunch!
It’s from midland in Culver City.

Hi there. would you be able to tell me what size rug this is? I have quite a small space, and thinking an 8×10 would be too much under my king. this looks like its more of a runner?
Gorgeous! Will you please share credits for the nursery nook dresser as well as the rocking chair and pouf ottoman? Thank you!
The credits are all listed above. In the post!

I’m obsessed with finding a modern mobile like the one in their nook, can I ask where or whom that is from?!?
Hi there! I know you said that the bench at the end of the bed is custom made – do you sell these? Or would there be a possibility of ordering one? I’m absolutely in love with it, and cannot find anything like it! Any suggestions? Thank you so much 🙂
Hi Sarah, I love your style! I saw that you listed all the pieces in each room, but I couldn’t find where that ceiling pendant was from? Do you mind sharing? Thanks! xx Lizzie

[…] Change the corner of your bedroom into a small nursery by creating a combined bedroom and nursery space. Add a small crib and some floating shelves around the crib to store all baby essentials. You can use monochromatic décor which will go well with the whole room palette. Use art wallpaper to differentiate it from the rest of the room while making sure it is not overdramatic. Take inspiration here. […]
