master bedroom / nursery nook makeover

master bedroom nursery makeover for max & margaux wanger // sarah sherman samuelLast week I introduced you to my Nursery/Master Bedroom project for Max & Margaux Wanger and I’m thrilled to share the full final tour.

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…

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.

Soft white baskets supply a lot of easy reach storage as well as the large lidded floor baskets.

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.

master bedroom / nursery makeover // sarah sherman samuelJust outside of the bedroom we wanted to give Margaux a space to be able to nurse and rock the new baby while also watching their older son so we created a mama station in their existing playroom. 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

    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!

  • […] | Margaux + Max’s Gallery Wall Honestly, a good gallery wall will never grow old in my book, but I particularly love this one. […]

  • 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!
