Room for Improvement: Nursery Room
Decorating can be lots of fun, but its a creative challenge at the same time, So tonight, our makeover maestro Martin Amado is stopping by a young couples house to help them get ready for their new bundle of joy.
WSVN -- Martin Amado: "On today's Room for Improvement, we are meeting Jess and Billy who are about to become first time parents. Its an exciting time in their lives, but it also requires a lot of planning. So today, we are here to help them to get their nursery space ready for the babies arrival."
Martin Amado: "All right guys, so tell me about the room that we are in right now."
Billy: "Well this use to be our guest bedroom and we want to turn it into our baby room."
Martin Amado: "So Jess, what is the inspiration for the nursery space?"
Jess: "The inspiration is to just keep it very clean, simple, modern, girly still but not too girly.
Martin Amado: "So we are having a girl. Do we have a name chosen already? Your going to rest. I love the name by the way, and Billy is going to help me put the room together. Does that sound like a plan?
Jess: "Sounds wonderful."
Martin Amado: "All right Billy so you already painted the nursery. I love the color scheme in the yellow and the gray. When is the baby due?
Billy: "The baby is due April 5th."
Martin Amado: "What are the essentials to make a nursery space be more functional?"
Billy: "You need a crib, rocking chair and a dresser."
Martin Amado: "It can almost double as a changing table and then you have space down here for like toys, maybe even baby clothes."
Martin Amado: "Now, we have all the pieces in place, but now, we need the decorative elements that will really sort of play up the style and bring it all together."
Billy: "I think Jess would like it up against the wall. I sort of like it centered."
Martin Amado: "Well that's a big dilemma, what do we do?"
Martin Amado: "Centered for you, all right."
Martin Amado: "We should always personalize a nursery space. In this case its going to be with the babies name. You know it, I know it. I know you guys at home don't know it yet. So, the first step I want you to do is put this scrap booking paper in each one of these frames."
Martin Amado: "The idea is to use these frames with the scrap booking paper inside sort of as a mat for these premade alphabet letters to be placed right on top, spelling out the babies name."
Martin Amado: "And of course, we are still not revealing the name, but you can try to figure it out."
Martin Amado: "In the meantime, with the canvas bins you can store diapers in there, maybe towels, small clothing articles, but in the future as the baby grows you can use them for toys and other accessories."
Martin Amado: "Ok Billy, this is the final touch. What do you think of the room so far?"
Billy: "The room looks great. Jess os going to be ecstatic."
Martin Amado: "Lets go get her. Thanks for all your help."
Martin Amado: "With a new baby on the way, Jess and Billy already gave the nursery a head start by painting it in a pastel yellow and light gray combination. We picked out the furniture in a natural wood tone and added white accents throughout the room, highlighting the modern style that Jess was looking for."
Jess: "Aww. Oh my gosh. I love it, that is adorable with her name."
Martin Amado: "We can finally reveal her name. Avery Willow."
Oh my gosh. I love this.
Martin Amado: "Well thank you guys for watching at home. Many blessings to you and your growing family. Congratulations to you both again, Jess and Billy. Thank you. We'll catch you next time on another Room for Improvement. That's right guys."
