We painted the ceiling a navy blue, and the walls more of a teal color. We wanted a dark and cozy room. This was an office-turned bedroom, it has vaulted ceilings and wall was added to enclose the room.
Space and space exploration have a special place in both my and my husband’s hearts. Our wish was to share that with our child as soon as he enters the world and what better way to do it than to bring space into his nursery.
This is a DIY project, with the wallpaper and knot pillows sourced from Etsy, the furtniture set from Little Guy Comfort, the shelving and rug from Crate Kids and the handwoven rug from Love44. The glider is from Babyletto. The wall hanger is from West Elm. The window treatment is from the Shade Store. The wall, ceiling and trim paint is from Clare.
The nursery is the perfect space for our son – both are a labor of love and dedication towards building a thriving and loving family together.
I was able to build almost everything in this nursery myself for our rainbow baby boy. My inspiration came from living in the southwest while also being fascinated with the moon.
We wanted to give my sweet boy the best first birthday for making us have the best year of our lives! When searching for themes, I felt like I was seeing the same ideas and themes over and over, and definitely less ideas for boys! When finally stumping upon the camping theme I was left in the dark with very few ideas to go off of. I whipped up these details with the help of my mom and would love to share with you the day Rayden was ONE Happy Camper !
My girls and I LOVE a celebration! Valentines Day or Galentines Day is up there with our favorites! Each year since my eldest has been in school, she’s wanted to share her Donut Shop Valentines with her classmates. They are a super sweet spin on a regular valentine! Plus, enjoy some inspiration for my Love Baskets, some favorite Valentine books, and Galentines party ideas!
My 5.5 year old son requested black walls, superheroes, and toys in his room. His favorite superhero is Ghost Rider and it took awhile to find art that featured him, but wasn’t too scary. I used his favorite colors throughout the room: black, blue, gray, and red. To maximize toy storage & play space I installed a closet system that accommodates all of his clothes & costumes as well as puzzles & boardgames.
The room came together with pieces from all over the place- some we’ve had for years. Bed/ headboard (Wayfair), chair & fan (Home Depot), art & blue pillow (Etsy), rug & red pillow (Home Goods), black bookcase & blue floor bin (Crate & Barrel), blue striped sheets (Walmart/ Gap), white duvet, white sconces, globe light, gray felt bins, nightstand, closet system (IKEA), curtains (West Elm), black sconce & air purifier (Target), smart piggy bank, door hook & black furniture legs (Amazon).
Although there are a lot of things in his room, there is still room to add more clothes and toys into the existing storage especially since we regularly purge (donate/ sell/ toss) items that no longer suit his needs.
Girls can like Trucks too! Our girl is fiercely trucking into THREE! We had the best day having a small celebration for this birthday GIRL! She is Digging being THREE!
I had to share my son’s 1st birthday theme… since his name is DEAN we felt a Dean Martin inspired birthday party was a must!
We specifically targeted the song ‘That’s Amore’ and went the pizza route with food and some featured decor pieces. It was easy-peasy because we blasted a Dean Martin playlist from Spotify, served New York style pizza (which was delivered), designed Dean’s smash cake to replicate a pizza (Thanks Britt Bakes) had pizzas inspired cookie takeaways with a message saying “Thanks for Bein’ a Pizza Dean’s Year”. We found the cutest gold banner that read “I love you to pizzas” that hung above the makeshift bar in the garage – yes, this was a garage party! The tables were lined with red & white checkered table runners, displaying photo pedestal frame centerpieces from Ikea for like .99/each. We found a wholesale site that sold personal pizza size boxes that we used as risers and centerpieces and now my son uses when creating Playdoh “pizzas”. It was a truly lovely event and outside-the-box theme that everyone loved! Most importantly, it didn’t break the bank.
