My inspiration for this gender neutral nursery began with the otomi patterned wallpaper. From there I decided to add in some pops of color and whimsy with a few fun llamas as well as the gingham curtains, crib sheet and pouf. I decided to keep most of the furniture quite neutral in form and tone after finding this great dresser and side table pair on Craigslist. With some new hardware and a coat of cobalt lacquer they came to life and added some real personality to the space. Finally, I laid the multicolored rug at an angle and added a few toys, books, and decor pieces to the shelves and hooks. Our baby *BOY!* (Arlo) arrived a few weeks ago and we are so excited to watch him grow and explore his new room.
Inspired by the book Flora and the Flamingo, we planned a flamingo first birthday bash for our daughter, Genevieve. We used loads of pinks and orange set against our deep blue dining room. Pinterest provided a lot of the baking inspiration – including the ombré cakes and flamingo sugar cookies. We set up a kids’ table for the party favors so the littles could enjoy their treats too! I incorporated a chalkboard wall with some fun facts about Gen and flamingo yard ornaments in our front yard directed our guests to the party!
I created a gender neutral nursery for my baby (it’s a GIRL!) using bold colors and patterns with a safari theme.
