Space Nursery

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.

Where the Wild Thing Sleeps

The entire room is inspired by the Maurice Sendak book, “Where the Wild Things Are”. I wanted my son to have a space he can grow with, encourages his imagination, play, adventure, and of course, reading! Nothing encapsulates all those things more than the childhood book that I grew up with, “Where the Wild Things Are”.
My family and friends helped bring my vision to life with my mom making our son’s name, “Mac” above the closet using pages from the book and my Aunt, cutting out the silhouettes of the iconic characters. The mural was done by my very talented friend, Amber Bambler, https://www.amberbambler.com/, which really brought the room together and brought a coziness that one can only find through love and imagination.
My biggest piece of advice is to incorporate use of color, the old with the new, and try to put your own special touches from your childhood into the nursery. Have fun with your design and don’t be afraid to chose bold color choices!

Baby Girl Ocean Nursery

We LOVE the ocean and knew we wanted to do some kind of nautical nursery, regardless of our baby’s gender. When we found out we were having a girl, we were surprised at how hard it was to find gender neutral or girl items to decorate with. We chose pink and turquoise to anchor (pun intended) the space with little nods to the sea like the paddle, anchor hooks, rope mirror, woven pouf, and clothing dividers. We also swapped out the hardware on the change table to boat cleats and choose the Nook mattress in Glass color both for safety and because the “pebbles” look like bubbles.
We love the result – just enough of a theme to pull the room together but not too much that things look out of place if they aren’t ocean themed. Our girl Tia loves it!

It’s a Wild World Nursery

My first born. My heart.
I wanted to give this sweet boy a modern safari theme, with soft neutrals, palm prints, golden safari animals and macramé accessories. The wall color is a very light and beachy blue- Glimmer SW 6476 by Sherwin-Williams. I found that beautiful macramé lamp shade on clearance at World Market. The round gold trimmed mirror and gold/glass table lamp are from Target. The #MCM crib and dresser are from Wayfair. The wooden floating shelves are from Amazon and the white floating shelves are from Ikea. The utility cart is from Bed, Bath & Beyond. All of the wall pictures are from hobby Lobby. This nursery has a tranquil and cheerful vibe – and  my nightly tea drinking spot. I loved every minute of designing and decorating my son’s room… next theme – California Surf! Hang Loose.
XO, Nicole

Blush Sophistication Big Girl Room

Never, EVER, did I think I would paint a room blush pink.  Yet, here we are and…I LOVE it!  Now, let’s get to the back story.
We moved into our beautiful, new (to us) home in March of 2020.  Yes, right at the start of the pandemic.  It was a tough time for our sweet girl, her whole world had been turned upside down in a matter of weeks.  Once we were settled, I knew I wanted to make her room special and something that she would love as she grows up (I’m not crying…).
Her room at the new house has beautiful vaulted ceilings, two bright windows, and ample space to spread out.  She had spent her time distance learning in our dining room this past year, but I was ready to reclaim my space and give her some much needed privacy (cue seven year old attitude).  We were on a pretty tight budget as we are doing other projects around the house.  Thank goodness for Target!  We found the perfect desk, bookcases, and accessories.  Great quality, affordable and so, so cute!
Together, we chose the perfect blush pink, Head Over Heels by Benjamin Moore.  She squealed in delight as I painted all that luscious pinkness on the walls.  I have to be honest, it felt a little pink overload at first.  However, once we put everything back into the room and added those pops of turquoise…wow, I was a little jealous!  I painted the wooden storage bins to match the turquoise in the throw pillow.  They give that perfect pop of color in the book cases while still providing cute storage.
The dollhouse also received a little makeover.  Fresh paint, some new furniture and decor.  It’s a favorite amongst my daughters friends when they come over for a playdate.  And, let’s be honest, me too.
What I love about paint is how it transforms a space for not a lot of money.  It really allows you to be creative and bold.  My daughter and I had a great time creating her new space together and I know it’s something we will love for years to come.
