Rock A Bye Baby
A Nursery That Sings


When your name is as cool as Axel Ray, you’ve definitely got to have an awesome “crib” to match. As interior designers, few projects are more fun and inspiring than a nursery. And when the baby’s dad is a celebrity radio DJ, things really start to get interesting. How about a nursey designed around a rock and roll music theme? The trick was how to make the room feel playful and age appropriate for Axel, without making it come off like a Hard Rock Café. The clients felt Belle took on the challenge and pulled it off beautifully. Vintage LP’s in shadow box frames, boom box “cassette” wallpaper, and a roman valance made from guitar pick printed fabric, really make this room sing! A charming book shelf and stuffed animal storage give the room a distinctly kid’s point of view. In addition, Blake Lisman created some clever visual graphics to bring the whole room together, including inspiring quotes from musicians. This will be a room that can grow with Axel for several years, or at least until he decides to start his own rock band!
