The von Hausch Family, Fort Lauderdale, FL
In creating a striking aquamarine nursery, Bonnie and Gregory von Hausch surrounded their daughter, Soleil Capri, with beachy treasures from around the world. "The art and photographs in her room capture memories of our travels and the calmness we feel when we're near the sea," says Bonnie. "To us, Soleil means happiness, and the room reflects her happy personality." A painted chest and armoire from the Home Design Store in Coral Gables, FL, work well with a Corsican iron canopy crib. The walls, painted in Benjamin Moore's Bahama Blue with a rubbed finish, are adorned with dangling starfish, ribbons, hearts, and collectibles that have been moved out of reach now that 18-month-old Soleil has started walking. "I wanted the room to appear as if it was a coral reef, where you could see things at different levels as you 'swim' around it," says Bonnie.
