Ada’s Nursery

I wanted an elegant and girly nursery that wasn’t too baby-ish for our daughter, Ada, due Nov. 5th. I knew I wanted to do alot of pink and white, but I love color, so I had to throw in some pops of hot pink.

Baby Girl’s Bright and Beautiful Nursery

I wanted to create a look that was feminine and whimsical and that blended elements of both old and new. I also wanted the room to be bright and cheerful and reflect the energy my little girl will undoubtedly have. I scoured Craigslist, antique stores, and re-purposed several things I already had on hand and then combined that with some great new pieces I found along the way. I also was fortunate to have a mom who loves to sew so all the bedding and bunting flags were made by her with love at a fraction of the cost it would be to buy something custom made. The most important aspect of this room was I only put things in it that were perfect and I absolutely love. It often took longer or resulted in my husband having to build something for me, but the result was a room that is perfect for the sweet little girl who will hopefully be born soon!

Jack-n-Jill Kids’ Bathroom

We had this floral pink & green bathroom with our first daughter & were lucky enough to end up with a second daughter so we didn’t have to scrap it.  This is a Jack-n-Jill bath (so each bedroom accesses the bathroom from opposite sides).

Gray and Cream Baby Girl’s Nursery

I have one other daughter who has a pink, cream, & brown room.  I wanted something totally different in this baby girl’s room.  It started with the gray (Annapolis gray to be specific) walls & went from there.  Only 1 wall is stenciled.  The others were left in plain gray paint.

Kumari Gardens Nursery

I wanted something whimsical, eclectic, and colorful. I also wanted it to be a room that could grow with her. **It’s still a work in progress… my husband has to finish putting up her crown molding and we need to get new fixture plates**

Pink and Green Girl’s Nursery

I wanted to create a nursery that was feminine and bright, but not too “babyish”.  We also wanted to stick to a budget and completed a few DIY projects for the room.  My mom was a huge help and did the sewing for the curtains and crib skirt and helped with the wall stencil!

Shabby Chic Vintage Nursery

After finding out that I was pregnant with a Girl, it didn’t take long before jumping right into decorating her nursery. I wanted to create a space that could grow with her, as well as would be calming, feminine and simplistic, all done on a very small budget.
Living in military housing, we were not able to paint any of the walls, so adding personality and character to a very blank slate of a room with white walls was a challenge. I knew that I wanted to go with a shabby chic feel, so my first step was to find a crib and furniture to set the mood for the base of the design.

The Secret Garden Baby Shower

This was a baby shower with a theme inspired by the classic children’s book, The Secret Garden.  I knew I wanted to play with texture rather than color, and immediately knew I wanted to make a backdrop of paper flowers inspired by the Chanel 2009 runway show.  It was lightweight, inexpensive, and gorgeous!  (Looks awesome hanging on my bedroom wall now, too.)

Hudson Adalaide’s girly getaway

This is a ‘Do It On A Budget Nursery’, and we had a small room to work with, but I think it turned out great :) It was originally going to be a grey, yellow and lavender room; with owls as an accent… but somehow birds, butterflies and blossoms made their way in, along with some of my old ballet treasures.I love the way it turned out though.

Modern Chevron Elephant Baby Shower

I started compiling and researching very early, way before we knew the gender. Once I knew how I wanted to decorate his nursery, everything else came together. I purchased most of the supplies very early and my friend + business partner and I created all of the printables you see. I got inspiration ideas from Project Nursery, Etsy, and HWTM.

Squishy’s Shower

For those of you wondering, Squishy is the nick name for our baby in-utero! :) Squish’s baby shower was a fun summer shower with a modern picnic theme! Held in my mother-in-laws beautiful backyard. Due to the summer heat the shower was held in the morning while the home provided shade on the lower patio.

Garden Party

This is the desert table for Mafalda’s 4th birthday party.

Flowers and Butterflies

This room was decorated when Leonor turned 6 and went to primary school. She needs a place to do her homework and has a lot of toys and books. So everything was organized so that she can sleep, play, study and read. Everything she likes to do. She spends there a lot of time playing with her sisters. As the room is quite small, the majority of items were custom made.

Tinker Bell Baby Shower

“If you close your eyes, you may see a pool of lovely pale colors. If you squeeze them tighter, the pool will take on different shapes, and the colors will become brighter – so bright, that in a moment they’ll go on fire. And in that moment, just before they do, you will see Never Land.” Narrator in Peter Pan (quote found here).  Jodie, my friend and a mom to be, invited me to her Tinker Bell baby shower. Jodie asked me to capture the baby shower so she can have photographs for Sophie’s scrapbook. “Everyone being there was so special,” Jodie said. I can’t wait to meet Jodie’s baby, Sophie!

Vintage girl baby shower in pink and yellow

Girl Baby shower in yellow and pink colors. The mom loved vintage pieces, so we decorated little antique white urns, rustic birdcages and lanterns with garden inspired flowers. For the cake we wanted to go more elegant and modern than you typical baby shower cake so we modified a bridal cake and topped it with cute Chanel baby shoes with a bit of sparkle.  We also added little details like mini cupcakes, a wishing tree, mini lemonades, candy jars……all in the color scheme pink and yellow.  For the background we created a painting using stencils with birdcages, trees and bird patterns.
