With a baby boy on the way, 417 Home’s Editor-at-Large Heather Kane Kohler knew she wasn’t interested in the more traditional nursery themes that abound on Pinterest. Kohler wanted a bright, creative space filled with color and light, so she took inspiration from an unexpected source: a photo of Tommy Hilfiger’s whimsical bathroom in his Miami home. “The bathroom had this amazing wallpaper, and I saved the photo as inspiration for a really long time,” she says. But when it came time to order wallpaper, Kohler couldn’t find a design that fit her vision. Instead, Kohler and her husband, Ben Kohler, opted for the DIY route. Kohler plucked a banana out of her kitchen, traced it onto a slab of insulation foam and made a series of stencils; then, she and her husband measured the nursery walls, using the stencils to cover the walls in orderly rows of vibrant yellow bananas. Finally, Kohler went through and touched up each banana by hand. “I love color, and I saw this as an opportunity to have a color explosion in a way that you can’t really do in the more adult rooms in the house,” Kohler says.
