A Project For

Ariston Pierce

Age

Due Date: April 6, 2012

Location

Frisco, TX

Description

We didn't want a theme so that he could easily grow into his room. We love the mix of animals, airplanes, and art work.

Design Inspiration

Really I just based my initial design off of the colors (Yellow, Gray, and White)....from there we started to incorporate red, blue, and green. It was fun to just add cool art or stuffed animals that we thought he might enjoy looking at as he grows.

Favorite Items

The glider is THE most comfortable chair EVER!!! But besides that....I just love every little thing in this room. I'm looking forward to spending so much time in here once this little guy makes his appearance. :)

Advice

Collect little things that mean something to you or that catch your eye! We avoided big box stores and matching sets of anything so we could achieve a collected, eclectic look.

    jennarobbins,

    Thank you!!! We are so in love with that pedal car!! ;) And no ma’am…. he was due yesterday and he’s still cozy inside my belly today! Guess he’s telling me he’ll be here when he’s ready! ;)

    I love it all! Such a happy room- great job! The crib, it looks to be an off-white color? I’m on the hunt for a crib that will match a PBK changing table I have and this one has the beadboard, but still works for a boy… fill me in, is it white white or slightly creamy?
    Good luck with your delivery!

    Catherine,

    Hi!! Thank you!! We just put a sheet of white paper against it so we could give you an accurate answer…. We would say that it is slightly off-white. Not cream… but not bright white. Hope that helps!! We love the crib….I like the lines of it because it doesn’t have the typical curves that you find on so many cribs. Plus this one is convertible which we hope will grow well with him.

    And thank you!! He still hasn’t made his appearance yet but we know it’s just a matter of time! :)

    This is such a great nursery! You’ve already thought of everything you’ll need, and it’s all within easy reach. The perfect place to spend time and the colors are so relaxing! Well done!

    Lmphotos,

    Thanks so much! That will match perfectly! You have ended my search- thank you thank you thank you!! And yes, as my Dr father-in-law always says, Babies don’t read books…they’ll come in their own sweet time and do all those accomplishments when they do them. :)
