    An All-Star Nursery

    Interior designer Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise LA takes us inside her latest project - a beautiful nursery design for Baby Daxel. Who is Daxel you might ask? Well, this lucky little guy happens to be the son of America’s Next Top Model All-Stars winner, Lisa D’Amato. Lisa and her husband Adam hired De Vargas to turn Baby Daxel’s nursery into something exciting and spectacular for their newborn son. This Hollywood Hills nursery has been transformed with with furnishings provided by The Land of Nod, paint from Valspar, and new flooring from Lumber Liquidators. The end result is an adorable circus-inspired nursery that Baby Daxel can enjoy for years to come.

    The color palette that De Vargas chose is modern and sophisticated for a baby boy’s room. Shades of red, gray, black and white are used throughout the space. De Vargas choose to go with dark shades on the walls and added bright pops of color with textiles and white furnishings throughout the space. The red and white window treatments from The ReRack Gals are a perfect example of how textiles have been used as a feature in the space.

    Here Comes The Circus

    A mix of modern and vintage art is featured throughout the nursery. De Vargas created a cute gallery wall using vintage circus prints that were blown up, and framed to fit in with the room’s decor. From stripy circus tents to pictures of circus animals, the prints are an unexpected feature that add to the room’s theme.

    A Mix of Patterns

    For the perfect place for baby to get some rest, De Vargas used bedding from The Land of Nod to create the patterned mix present in the crib. A yellow polka dot crib mattress, candy-striped pillow, and zebra cushion all add to the whimsical theme of the space. A monogrammed “D” pillow customizes the space for Baby Daxel.

    Monogram It

    In one of this space’s cooler twists designer Vanessa De Vargas has left no question about whose room this is. Daxel’s monogram is present throughout the nursery. An oversized red “D”, reminiscent of a vintage carnival piece adds a cute lighting feature to the space. Meanwhile another eye-catching initial adorns the wall over baby’s first library. As a design element the repetition helps pull different parts of the room together while having the letters appear in gold and red allows them to play into the color palette in unique ways.

    Bold Accessories

    For this little one’s room, colorful toys and children’s books have been put on display to add to the decor. Red, black and white toys fit in with the room’s color palette. A touch of electric blue is a nice contrast to the darker shades in the room, adding a pop of bright color.

    Black Feature Walls

    The entire nursery is painted in black paint by Valspar. De Vargas found a shade with purple undertones that would be less harsh on a baby’s eyes. With white trim on the upper walls and ceiling, the space appears bright and open.

    Room To Grow

    Vanessa De Vargas designed this room with the idea that it can grow with Daxel as he gets older. The sophisticated coloring and layout of Daxel’s nursery will look wonderful as a little boy’s room, and even as he grows older. As the details of the room change it will stay an appealing and stylish place to grow up in.
