Otomi, Gingham, and Llama Drama (Gender Neutral Nursery)

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.

Genevieve’s Flamingo First Birthday Bash!

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!
