A Project For
I wanted a calm and soothing room for my daughter to feel comfortable in as she sleeps and plays. I went with a white and beige color pallet to brighten up the space as it does not get a whole lot of light. I combined a few rustic pieces along with touches of gold and glitter to add warmth and sparkle. I am so happy with how it turned out and I hope my daughter will enjoy her space for several years to come.
I'm in love with the cottage chic look and my husband is in love with the outdoorsy look. So I combined the two in a bright and beautiful way to create a rustic chic baby oasis.

Take your time deciding on what you want your space to say or feel like when you walk in. I tried to rush into getting it all done and it showed. Several times I had to go back through rearranging and/or removing a few things to get the cohesive look that I was going for. If you are on a budget, try browsing DIY's online before going out and buying something you saw in a magazine or in the store. I guarantee you there is a "HOW-TO" out there somewhere that will be half the cost. Most importantly HAVE FUN!
