Leya Kaufman, who by day is the head of sales and brand partnerships at Coveteur, just welcomed her second little one, Theo, into the world. Though Leya has decorated a nursery for her first child, this one presented a new opportunity — in several ways! "This time we’re in a house, so the nursery feels like more of a permanent fixture," she explains. "It’s not rented or temporary."
Leya's decorating strategy changed this time around, too. "We felt like our oldest outgrew the theme we had in place for his nursery within a year, so this time we wanted something a bit less specific,"she notes. "We were focused on creating a space that would be instantly functional and pulled together and clean."
And, most importantly, it was key to Leya that her son would be able to play a role in shaping the space down the line as he gets older. "We wanted to create a nursery that Theo would be able to grow into," she shares. "We wanted it to be somewhat of a canvas from which his personality, interests, and favorite things could turn it into 'his own' in time."
Working with a design consultant, Charissa of House & Home Design, Leya was able to accomplish every decor fanatic's dream—turning a Pinterest vision into reality!
We asked Leya to share a few of her takes about her son's finished space!
