The nursery is a sacred space in any home, a sanctuary where dreams and imagination take root. When it comes to crafting the perfect nursery, every detail matters, from the choice of colors to the selection of window treatments. In this Inside Look, we dive into the delicate and beautiful nursery brought to life by Christie Tonnessen, the founder and creative director of Tonnessen Studio.
Meet Christie Tonnessen: A Visionary in Design
Before embarking on her journey as the founder of Tonnessen Studio, Christie Kuehner Tonnessen honed her skills and expertise in the world of design and marketing. Her illustrious career included roles as the Brand Director at Schumacher, where she oversaw content creation and brand marketing. Christie's journey also took her through esteemed organizations such as Ralph Lauren and Sotheby’s International Realty, where she focused on global marketing, digital marketing, content creation, and social media. However, in 2023, Christie made a pivotal decision. She shifted her focus from large, Fortune 500 companies to supporting smaller businesses when she founded Tonnessen Studio. Christie's desire was to work intimately with brands, forging close, trusting relationships with designers and founders.
The Enchanting Nursery: A Haven of Serenity
The nursery designed by Christie Tonnessen in collaboration with Everhem Window Treatments is nothing short of enchanting. It's a testament to her creative vision and Everhem's commitment to crafting custom window treatments that harmonize with the overall design concept.
A Palette of Soft Serenity
The nursery's color palette is a soothing symphony of soft, earthy tones. Sage green walls envelop the space, creating a tranquil backdrop that promotes serenity. It's a color choice that resonates with nature and complements the concept of a calming nursery.
To enhance the soothing ambiance, Everhem created custom drapery and matching woven shades in a delicate beige with intricate floral details. These window treatments not only diffuse the natural light but also add an element of elegance to the nursery. The choice of beige with floral accents brings a touch of grace to the space, perfect for a nursery.
Every Detail Considered
What sets this nursery apart is the meticulous attention to detail. Every element was carefully chosen to create a harmonious and calming environment for a little one.
The bay window is adorned with Everhem's woven woods and sheers in Moon. These window treatments allow the gentle play of sunlight to filter into the room, creating a soft and dreamy atmosphere. Paired with a patterned window seat, they bring the sage green elements of the room into focus. It's a design choice that not only elevates the aesthetics but also serves a functional purpose by offering a cozy nook for reading and daydreaming.
A Peek into Vintage Elegance
The nursery by Christie seamlessly weaves together elements of vintage charm with modern elegance. It's a space where classic design meets contemporary sensibilities.
The peek-a-boo bed is a nod to vintage aesthetics, adding a playful touch to the room. It's a spot where a child can indulge in imaginative play and create wonderful memories. The bed's delicate floral details mirror those found in the window treatments, creating a sense of visual harmony.
