Modern Nursery

Domain Design is celebrating its first nursery project! This modern designed nursery was so much fun with its classic black and white theme with pops of kelly green and pink. The polka dot decals are the fun center of attention, but were definitely the most challenging part of this project – lots of math, painters tape and patience… Enjoy the pictures!

  • Paint every room a bold different color that doesn’t flow.
  • Hang artwork on EVERY wall & TOO high.
  • Shove all your furniture against the wall.
  • Purchase all matching wood furniture.
  • Use FAKE flowers everywhere.
  • Buy “puffy” furniture.
  • Use your hobby for design inspiration.
  • Have the legs of your sofa not on the rug – buy an appropriately sized rug!

Blacked Out

I love how this project is turning out! Many people are scared of going too bold, but look how dramatic your trim and doors can look by going dark? This trim is actually not a jet black, but rather a more subtle black suede. Try it out in a basement or bedroom!

Wall of Wine

The wine wall is finally complete. The sunroom has officially been converted into a wine tasting room! This custom wine rack is not only functional, holding 114 bottles, but serves as a beautiful work of art. Max is very excited to showcase this beauty!
