Nesting Story is a design and parenting blog about my creative projects, parenting four kids including twins and creating a beautiful and practical space for my family.

Hi, I’m Joanna Venditti and I began Nesting Story in 2012 while working as a designer as well as creating murals for other families. I wanted to have something that was my own creative outlet while also connecting with other parents and sharing our own nesting story.

After leaving the design world to be with our two kids and focus on my own design and mural company I could have never predicted that we would be welcoming twin girls in July 2014. Once our new bundles arrived I made the decision to solely focus on my design and parenting blog. Today I am loving creating a beautiful home, being creative and parenting my four little ones while sharing with all of you along the way.

Yellow and Grey Twins Nursery

When we found out we were expecting twins and adding two more to our family of four, we were thrilled to prepare for our new additions.  We are so fortunate to have a large bedroom with an ensuite that was perfect for twins.  After adding wainscotting, I created a bright and airy atmosphere by bringing in white cribs, drapery and a sofa while incorporating some dark furniture we already had from our older kids.  I updated our older dresser by adding some white feminine knobs.  I looked for decorative pieces that had a vintage flair but threw in some pops of color and unexpected items like the mid-century modern style lamp.  I made sure I labelled who’s crib was who’s by adding our baby girl’s names to the wall above each crib with a whimsical decal.
