Nursery With Dark Jewel-Tone Walls

A New Vintage Nursery Full of Personality and Charm

"I pushed the envelope and created a sense of theatrics and drama with the space by using layers of pattern and pops of color to energize and inspire," says Tamara. She chose a five-color (including metallic gold) hand-screen-printed wallpaper from Portland-based Makelike called lush. The wallpaper, designed by Mary Kysar, uses water-based inks on recyclable paper. For the rest of the walls, Pratt & Lambert's Anthracite did the trick, using oil-based high gloss on the trim work and ceiling, and satin on the walls. The Nurseryworks Uptown Changer ($1,200), also designed by Tamara, easily transforms into bedroom or office storage, or even a dining room credenza once tots are out of diapers.
