I grew up spending my summers at our family’s lake house, always out on the water either sailing, swimming or water skiing. The lake is where my husband and I met and eventually got married. It’s nestled in a small town in northern Indiana where the pace is slow and the people are friendly. Growing up I remember my mom used to take me to antique shops around town to find special, one-of-a-kind items to use as decor in the lake house. Our lake house and the small town in northern Indiana inspired the theme for our first baby boy’s nursery. The only item I really splurged on was the crib, because I knew exactly what I wanted. The rest (dresser, side table, book chest, wall art) I found at antique or consignment shops and refurbished to make them match my vision. The best part about the room is that the wallpaper is original to the home (built in 1969!) and it is just perfect.
