We transformed a neutral basement space into a colorful playroom for our toddlers. We used many items that we already had on hand and lots of organization to create a cozy, whimsical space to enjoy the winter months. We painted one wall with chalkboard paint, strung up some outdoor cafe lights and hung some art on the walls.
This is a fun boy’s playroom I put together for our two boys! It’s decorated with bargain finds, DIY projects, and lots of creativity.
While I was pregnant, my husband and I decided early on to wait until our baby’s birth to find out the gender. Because of this, deciding how to decorate a nursery was a bit of a challenge. Neutrals are great, but being someone who loves color and lots of it, I knew an all white and gray nursery wasn’t for me. I decided to decorate the nursery in black, white, and grey with lots of patterns and textures and throw in the whole color wheel to brighten things up.
We wanted to create the perfect indie nursery with a touch of softness for our sweet girl Blake, we did just that with bold blacks and whites with pops of color!
I wanted to use bold black and white with romantic pastel colors for Maclaren’s room inspiration. Part Modern and part vintage. We mixed new trends with old things we found at thrift shops.
For our son’s first birthday, which is in October, I wanted a Halloween theme, but also something cute, not creepy. So I picked “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”. The main colors are yellow and black chevron and white and orange polka dots. Pumpkins were everywhere! Pumpkin balloons, pumpkin beach balls, pumpkin decorating! Pumpkin coffee, cupcakes and candy too!
We wanted to create a peaceful and beautiful space for baby Sienna. We wanted something feminine, but didn’t want to do all pink. There’s no specific theme to the room, just a color scheme, we kept it simple.
I designed this bedroom for my eight-year-old girl Bela. We both got really trired of her pink walls and thought it was time to freshen up a bit. I wanted to create a timeless space for her. So I opted for neutral color walls, lots of geometric patterns, streamline furniture pieces, and colorful accents. The space feels so airy and yet very cozy.
My cousins threw me this awesome About To Pop themed baby shower in honor of my son who is due November 20th, 2015.
This was all about creating a space he wanted to spend time in. We wanted him to play a part in making some of the decor choices which makes him love his new big boy room that much more.
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!
We are preparing this pink, mint and grey nursery for our baby girl, due in October. I wanted to create a special room that felt peaceful and beautiful. I love soft, pastel colors and wanted to give her a space she could grow into. I decided early on that I would not have a “theme”, but rather a color scheme and overarching ideas of what I wanted the room to feel like. Within the light gray walls you’ll find different shades of pink and mint with gold accents running throughout.
We celebrated Charlie’s birthday by inviting everyone over for doughnuts!
We wanted a calm, soft space with some old and new elements mixed in. The room features some vintage blankets, hints of metallics, retro starburst mirrors, and lots of fluffy white and sheepskin!
I wanted to create a woodland nursery, but wanted it to be more sophisticated and of course gender neutral. I fell in love with gold rub and buff and realized how easy it is to make anything inexpensive look a little more upscale (even plastic!). I was definitely sticking to a tight budget so I DIY’d as much as possible and working in a tiny space for twins.
When we moved into a new home recently it was the perfect opportunity to trade in our daughter’s nursery for a “big girl room”. I wanted a cheerful and bold space for our colorful girl, but I also love fresh, bright rooms, so decided to go with a white backdrop and add happy punches of pink, turquoise and yellow. This room just makes me happy every time I walk by, and I love how it reflects the fun personality of our little girl.

A dreamy vintage white nursery was my hope for our third baby. I knew I wanted to use special keepsake items from both my childhood and my husband’s no matter the sex of the baby. A grey and white color combination was the perfect base in creating the calm atmosphere I craved. This being our third child I wanted a serene place for the two of us to connect and enjoy — away from the hustle and bustle of a house full of giggles and two-year old temper tantrums. I wanted to keep the nursery simple yet full of special personal details.
I’m an interior designer so naturally I started designing my baby’s nursery ever since I found out I was pregnant, I was researching ideas all day and trying to track down items that I had seen online and liked. The thing that took the majority of time and effort was the mural decal wall. It was labour intensive and I had to work on it with my two sisters and their friend (they did all the work really).
The room was “done” in loose terms when Farida arrived in all her glory and all of the little items, photos, frames, etc were all added in very recently right before her 1st birthday and the room is finally picture worthy, at least to me and I’d love to share it with you
