Tell us about the design inspiration for your daughter’s nursery! Did you always have an ideal space planned, or did the room develop organically?
Being in the baby industry, I am immersed in nursery design and décor. Long before I was pregnant, I had been pinning nursery images for our VONBON Pinterest account, so I already had a ton of inspiration. I filtered through all of the images I’d pinned and created my own inspiration board, highlighting some of the colors, textures and handmade items I wanted in the room. It was a great jumping-off point. As the room came together, it organically established its own character.
(Funny enough, VONBON was first born in that room. It previously housed my home office/studio, which was featured here on Glitter Guide back in January 2014. It was so fitting that the room take on a new life and transform into the perfect space for my new baby, Esti.)
