Favorite Items

There are so many things I love, but if I had to limit it, it would be

  1. The LIAM sign!
  2. the Combi Car Walker
  3. and my custom Chevron Quilt!


Remember that the room needs to be about you as much as the baby! You will be spending a lot of time in there with your little one, so make it a space you will enjoy and you all can grow with!

Your little one doesn't have to dominate the design! We definitely were avoiding a "child-like" look to the room.

Is that a mounted woman's chest on the dresser wearing a red bra?I have analyzed it forever and cannot figure out what else it could be lol.

Very nice nursery. And I super love the license plates map! And I have to say the name sign is so glitzy. Reminds me of movie stars' dressing table.

The LIAM light sign is so cool. I'm sure Liam finds it fascinating. And you just gave birth today? Wow Congrats!
