Eclectic Boys Nursery

Robert’s nursery was the first room we completed in our new house. My sister-in-law hand painted the accent wall and I painted the dresser in the same color blue. The shelves are filled with sentimental pieces, like my childhood teddy bear, a framed Hermès coloring book that was a wedding gift from a friend, and Robert’s favorite book “Mommy in my Pocket,” written by his grandma. The gallery wall is a collection of pictures and frames from different places that I’ve collected over the year, including Pop Art prints of our two dogs Moose and Bear. There’s a lot going on in this room but somehow I think it all works!
*Please note the room was styled for these photos – the plant is not normally within reach of the crib.

Pink and Blue Flamingo Birthday Party

Pink and Blue Flamingo Birthday Party

For my daughter Ryan’s 2nd Flamingo Birthday Party, I wanted to have a party that was bright and cheery and fit with a summer theme since her birthday is in July.  I sew for my Etsy shop, The Dandelion Lane and I came across this beautiful blue and pink flamingo fabric and from the inspiration for her flamingo party was born.  I handmade all of the desserts including the flamingo cookies and cupcakes and also made the flamingo pennant banner and her party outfit.  I used fresh flowers to decorate my tables which is a cheap and easy way to decorate and it looks great.  I also bough a bunch of flamingo lawn ornaments for decor outside.  We passed out blue and pink cotton candy as party favors which was also a huge hit.
I wanted something for the kids to be able to do outside and blow up baby pools and sprinklers were perfect for their age.  They were thoroughly entertained for the entire afternoon.
My advice would just be to not be afraid to do things yourself.  You can throw a great party without spending too much money by baking your own cake/cupcakes/cookies and decorating with things like flowers!

Celestial Inspired Boys Room

This room was designed for a little boy to update his nursery to his “big boy” room.  The bead board wainscotting, convertible toddler bed and dresser were existing.  My client wanted a “celestial” theme that was not too “themey”.  This drove the design in that most (although not all) of the elements of the design were suggestive of the celestial theme, rather than literal.  This is how I prefer to approach children’s room design because it allows the room the grow with the child.  Who wants to completely redecorate every couple of years?!

Emilee’s 2nd Birthday Fiesta

I thought for sure I was throwing Emilee a strawberry party this year but when I saw a fiesta invite on Instagram from River & Bridge well I just knew it was meant to be. I’m all for throwing kids’ parties with themes you want until they can ask for a theme themselves. Em LOVES anything Frozen but I knew if I threw the Frozen party now there was no explaining to a 3 or 4 year old Emilee that “we already did that,” So I’m saving Anna and Elsa for the year she actually asks for them. Which I know she will.

Grayson’s Modern Grey, Navy and White Nursery

When we found out we were pregnant I already knew regardless of having a boy or girl we would have a modern and neutral nursery filled mostly with greys and white with elephants. If it was a girl, we would have added coral for a pop of color, but when we found out we were having a boy, it was all about adding navy.  I loved every minute of planning the nursery for my sweet boy and it ended up being perfect!

A classic nursery that combines both nautical & travel inspired elements.  Not wanting anything too theme specific, we incorporated coastal & travel components into one cohesive nursery using muted shades of blue and gray, natural wood tones, & mixed metals.

Baby Boy Zoology Themed Nursery

When we found out we were expecting a boy I started looking for nursery ideas right away. I fell in love with the Michael Miller Zoology fabric, and the rest of the nursery kind of shaped itself around that.

Simon’s Alphabet/Geeky Nursery

We wanted a nursery that was functional, fun, gender neutral, and showcased our love for all things GEEK.  We picked out the crib bedding first – Babyletto Alphabet – and used the bright colors and alphabet items in it all around the room.  We used graphic prints inspired by our favorite sci-fi shows and movies as most of the artwork and even had Gillian Anderson (Scully/X-Files) sign one for Simon!

Ocean Meets the Sky Star Nursery

Ocean Meets the Sky Star Nursery

My inspiration was a piece of artwork that was a wave made out of stars and another piece of children’s art called “where the ocean meets the sky”. I wanted to incorporate stars and the sea in the nursery and these pieces of art helped my vision come to life! I had a vendor on Etsy make me a sign that said “where the ocean meets the sky I’ll be Sailing”. Little by little I added designs of the sea and the sky

Timeless Yellow Bedroom for Two Girls

A small home remodel required our girls to share a room.  They wanted it bright, but I had to make sure it would be flexible because of their age differences, as well as allow them to grow in it.

Little Man’s Airplane Third Birthday Party

My little guy has been obsessed with two things this year: trains and airplanes. Since he told us he wanted to be a Thomas for Halloween, airplane was the winner for the birthday theme as the day falls about 10 days after Halloween.
This year (the whole year) I have been testing and trying dairy/egg/soy free baking recipes. Ahaan is allergic to them but LOVES cakes and cupcakes. Last year, we had ordered a dairy/egg/soy free cake for his birthday. Which made me wonder about baking them at home instead of paying fortune to someone else. So the whole year, I tried and tested numerous recipes.
When his birthday rolled around, I was prepared….more or less. I baked all of the desserts (cakes, cupcakes, cookies and cake pops). I also baked white bread for kids’ sandwiches (since store brought bread has dairy on them).
I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. But I think it turned out good. I was satisfied. I also DIYed a lot of decors and signs to ensure it matched the color scheme I had in mind.
Kids had a blast (I think) and adults enjoyed (I hope). :)
