When Designers make babies!
Meet Mallory Gray, the procreation of what I would say is one of my favorite couples, Laurie and Andy Rhoney.
These two have made a beautiful human being, and while that is more profound than I really have words for…. let me move on to GUSH about the nursery that Laurie put together. I knew it would be a success. Laurie is a freelance Interior Designer here in Hickory,NC and her home is an impressive collection that speaks to her and Andy’s tailored eccentricity. They are both artists and their home is full of life and warmth. At her 6th month, Laurie was telling me about this idea she had to wallpaper the ceiling with a specific print, and from her description I totally could tell that this was it as soon as I stumbled upon this image. It was a great idea. I can’t believe the turnout. Its so stunning. Geez…. makes me wanna go get knocked up so I can hire Laurie to help me with my own Rhoney Nursery. Check it out!
Update: This nursery received tons of great attention from the blog community, including Urban Grace Interiors & Apartment Therapy. This exposure led to a number of newspaper article, including one from our own hometown paper, The Hickory Daily Record. See that article here.
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!

Laurie did a great job, I spotted several of my favorite nursery design elements. Mallory will enjoy the Rothman sparrows on the ceiling for a long time.
Mallory is one lucky baby! I wish I could live there….
I believe the bedding is handmade.
I love the stripes with grey trim – there and on the windows.
Oh my goodness this is amazing! I followed the link from a comment on YHL and so glad that I did! So beautiful, every detail is so creative. Thanks for sharing!
The wallpaper on the ceiling is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. But I imagine this would be a nightmare to hang.
Luckily, KJ, I have a dream wallpaper installer that “owed” me. Having never hung wallpaper myself, I decided to treat myself and let a professional do the job. The room is pretty small and straight forward with no weird angles, so my installer said it wasn’t too bad. Honestly, he was in and out in just under a few hours (with the help of an assistant). With the orientation of the birds, I felt it naturally belonged on the ceiling.
There is now a resource page for mallory’s nursery posted on our website. http://rhoneydesign.com/nursery.html.
You know I had the toughest time going back to work after my 2nd baby and finding good child care probably was the single biggest reason. :(
That is just beautiful. I wish I had the creativity to do something like that for my daughters nursery
