I'm a toddler mom (with one on the way) who has a passion for interiors. I'm a recovering lawyer addicted to coastal casual style, spray paint, shelter magazines and the color turquoise. I started my blog, EmbraceMySpace, as a tribute to the home I had to sell when my family was relocated for my husband’s job. Now I'm tackling design and DIY projects at my new home; loving every success and learning from every failure along the way! For more details on the story behind Embrace My Space, visit me at

A Colorful Nursery with a Hint of the Tropics

This is a colorful nursery for my second baby due January 17, 2016 (and currently still cooking!).  Because my son is just two, we weren’t ready to give up all of his nursery furniture just yet.  We kept things simple in this fresh space for the much anticipated addition to our family!

DIY Rainbow Book Ledges

DIY Rainbow Book Ledges

I’ve been in LOVE with the color bar ledges from The Land of Nod for as long as I can remember. But at $30 a pop, the total price to create the whole rainbow was little steep. So I took matters (and lumber!) into my own hands and made this fabulous hack for a fraction of the cost!
Full details here at my blog.

DIY Chalkboard Purple and White Striped Dresser

DIY Chalkboard Stripe Dresser for Nursery

I painted this chalkboard stripe dresser for my son’s room.  I thought the stripes were cute for a nursery, but also functional since I can change out the chalk labels as I reorganize the drawers.  Plus it makes it easy for my hubby to help with laundry :)

Sweet DIY Pumpkins fit for a Nursery

Just a cute little DIY project to keep me busy while waiting for baby’s arrival.  I wanted to add some fall décor to the space while still staying within the color scheme.  I decoupaged one of the pumpkins and the others I adorned with ribbon/rick rack.

DIY Nursery Mobile

DIY Paper Nursery Chandelier

I made this simple chandelier-inspired nursery mobile using cardstock, strips of ribbon and a hanging planter.
