Baby Nursery Inspiration: Frida Kahlo

I love nurseries. I love designing cozy little spaces that our children can grow into and love. These days, people are getting so creative when it comes to baby rooms. It’s no longer pink for girls and blue for boys. If you look on Pinterest, you will see an array of different themes, colors, styles — I love it. It got me thinking about what I would do if I had to design another nursery.

Frida Kahlo is one of the most famous Latina artists of all time. She is well-known for her use of vibrant colors and self-portraits. I think it’s important for Latino children to grow up learning about their culture and art — so this led me to digging around for some inspiration for a nursery based off of Frida’s work.
