The Harford Community College ASID Interior Design Student Chapter designed a nursery in the 37th Annual Baltimore Symphony Decorators' Show House that was open to the public for three weeks in May. This year's Show House, a five-bedroom stucco Colonial built in 1932, was once home to Baltimore Colts' quarterback Johnny Unitas, his wife, Sandy, and their young family, and it is where they lived from 1971 to 1988.
Caprice Brody, Roxana Carrera, Priscilla Tabeling, Alexa Hubicki and Sarah Garcia were the students who worked on the project. According to HCC faculty advisor Betty Reeves, the students elected to take a small bedroom and make it into a nursery using vivid geometric lines and shapes, which are the perfect elements for a discovering newborn. They wanted to make the nursery of today was visually stimulating. The coziness was brought to life with the complementary colors of blue and orange that gave the space a sophisticated feeling. The neutral gray walls were the perfect canvas for the attractive array of hues. The stylish choice of a comfortable area rug added a circular variety to the linear flow of the high-end nursery.
According to Reeves, the Baltimore Sun, Fox 45 TV, and WBAL TV 11 provided coverage about the nursery, and it was also selected as one of 10 rooms from the Baltimore Symphony Show House to appear on Architectural Digest's Facebook page.
All proceeds from the Show House will be used for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's educational programs.
