Two of my dear friends threw me a gender reveal party at my house. Because I love to decorate a party, I played a big role in the decorations (I just didn’t know which color I would be rooting for at the end of the day ;)).
We were the crazy folks who picked up and moved cities when I was 36 weeks pregnant. My gracious mother let us crash at her house while we sold one house and bought another. This meant that my firstborn’s nursery had to be put on hold. Fast forward four months into her life, and, goodness, creating the nursery was worth the wait! It’s currently the only completed room in our house, and that’s because it’s my favorite. This room–by far–has the most thought, articulation, and love put into it. The first time my husband walked into this room, he said, “Wow. It’s so white in here.” That little comment was music to my ears.

Lennyn’s girly gold nursery is a sweet soft space accented with gold antique and chic details. Burlap, Lace & Gold, oh my!
Leighton’s green, gold and pink nursery is colorful, fun, and personal — a space I think she’ll enjoy being in and that will grow with her for many years. We incorporated special pieces from family and friends, custom artwork, and some great color to make it a unique space for her.
We are preparing this pink, mint and grey nursery for our baby girl, due in October. I wanted to create a special room that felt peaceful and beautiful. I love soft, pastel colors and wanted to give her a space she could grow into. I decided early on that I would not have a “theme”, but rather a color scheme and overarching ideas of what I wanted the room to feel like. Within the light gray walls you’ll find different shades of pink and mint with gold accents running throughout.
Monochromatic black and white design with a glamorous pop of gold! Lots of different patterns and textures make the room interesting and unexpected for a nursery. Chic, sophisticated, and cool enough to last for years! Feminine without being too girly.
We wanted a calm, soft space with some old and new elements mixed in. The room features some vintage blankets, hints of metallics, retro starburst mirrors, and lots of fluffy white and sheepskin!
I wanted to create a woodland nursery, but wanted it to be more sophisticated and of course gender neutral. I fell in love with gold rub and buff and realized how easy it is to make anything inexpensive look a little more upscale (even plastic!). I was definitely sticking to a tight budget so I DIY’d as much as possible and working in a tiny space for twins.
I would probably describe Blake’s nursery as Tribal Glam. A mix of wild animals, patterns, bold colors and of course a touch of gold.

We wanted to have a beautiful, fun party to celebrate our sweet Carolyne turning 1! Our “theme” was “Sweet Carolyne” (like the Neil Diamond song) and included a dessert table with nothing but “sweets.” We used different shades of pink and coral, along with gold and glitter accents. Most everything was DIY by mommy!
Since the party was at 10 am, we had a breakfast bar with some brunch favorites – mini pancake stacks, sausage balls, chicken salad on croissants, mini blueberry muffins, and a yogurt bar!
I’m an interior designer so naturally I started designing my baby’s nursery ever since I found out I was pregnant, I was researching ideas all day and trying to track down items that I had seen online and liked. The thing that took the majority of time and effort was the mural decal wall. It was labour intensive and I had to work on it with my two sisters and their friend (they did all the work really).
The room was “done” in loose terms when Farida arrived in all her glory and all of the little items, photos, frames, etc were all added in very recently right before her 1st birthday and the room is finally picture worthy, at least to me and I’d love to share it with you
I started the project knowing I wanted to use the black and cream Dalmatian print wallpaper as a backdrop; from there I added coral and gold with green palm accents. Nurseries are so fun because you can use themes and colors that are completely separate from the rest of your house!
This chic, pink and gold stripe nursery has a sophisticated look with a few metallic touches. The couple already had the mirrored chest they new they wanted to incorporate into the room. Gold stripes were added to the ceiling for the sweet baby to look up at. Simple, clean white bedding and window coverings complete the look.
This project is of the nursery I designed for our first child, Letty Grace.
As an artist, it is important that my home be a show of support for other contemporary artists that I love. Baby girl’s room is no exception.

Liesl absolutely LOVES animals, so we decided that a Wild African Safari would be the perfect theme for her 5th birthday. Her only request was “live animals”, and we found a great non-profit to give the party goers a fun and and education exotic animal show and Liesl was their special assistant.
