Inside Actress Camille Guaty’s Dreamy Nursery for Her Newborn Son Morrison Rafael
The Prison Break actress and husband Sy Rhys Kaye welcomed their first child, a son named Morrison Rafael Kaye, on Oct. 5
My heart melts every time I hear Morrison’s little baby noises.
I wanted to create a space that I’d feel comfortable in. After all, I was the one nursing over eight hours a day! I started with the Como glider from Monte Design. Incredibly comfortable! The side table I got at Wayfair for less than $100. Having a basket with all of my nursing needs was essential (breast pump, nipple cream, nipple pads, burp cloths). The fiddle leaf fig was a perfect addition to incorporate greenery and height to the room. A tip from Ellmore Design: “Hanging your curtains at the highest point will make the room feel taller and more expansive! A sense of space always makes a room more enjoyable.”
Because of the small space I made the dresser have dual function: dresser and changing table. I replaced the knobs for these cool leather straps from Ikea. I can’t say enough about the Keekaroo changing table! Especially having a boy, it can get messy fast. All you have to do is wipe down and you’re good to go.
I collaborated with Lorena Canals to complete the look for the nursery. My intention in creating this space was functional design. I looked for months for the perfect rug, and for this space a round shape was key. This blush washable wool rug was my favorite and so essential in a baby’s room. Yes, it’s machine washable!
The pouf is a perfect ottoman, so chic and can double as a seat for my friends when they visit. The Oasis cushions and basket really tie the room together. I filled the basket with his favorite blankets, all within arm’s reach, so it’s ideal for those 3 a.m. feeds.
