Faisal’s Modern Safari Nursery

Faisal’s modern safari nursery revolved around the amazon stone chevron wall. The other items in the nursery don’t compete with the bold pattern, but compliment it in a clean, simple way. I had to absolutely love each item in order for it to find a home in Faisal’s nursery!

A Little Lady’s Nursery

Ella is our first baby. We were so excited to decorate her nursery but I didn’t want it to be all pink or too girly. I love nature and wanted her nursery to reflect it.

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!

Apple Themed Birthday

Our good friends own an apple orchard so we decided it would be a great place to hold an apple themed birthday party in the fall.  The trees were full of appes, cider was brewing and donuts were hot!

Robot Nursery

As software engineers my husband and I loved the idea of a ‘geeky’ twist on a nursery theme and fell in love with the idea of robots.

Elena Jane’s Nursery

While expecting our first child this coming October we wanted something colorful, girly but not too baby and something that she could grow into.  Our nursery was designed on a budget with the majority of the furniture being hand-me-downs and free finds we were able to pull together to create a functional and fun room!

Grey and Tangerine Modern {Woodland Inspired} Nursery

My husband and I both love things with a modern look and a tiny twist of vintage. When I was pregnant, we had no idea what we wanted to do for the nursery, the only thing we knew for sure was that we didn’t want to go the “traditional baby blue” route. We knew we both loved grey as a neutral and then we ended up adding a few pops of tangerine for fun!

Unique Girl’s Nursery

For our daughter, Rosie Mae, we wanted a nursery that didn’t have a theme.  If we had gone with a ready made theme, it would’ve been stars, but all the star themes were for boys.  So you’ll notice some stars here and there, but otherwise it just sort of came together from a lot of lovely elements.  The great thing is, we intend to move Rosie Mae into the bigger other bedroom when #2 comes along and, if #2 is a boy, we can swap out a few design details and BOOM it’s a boy’s room!  That’s why we picked the lovely green paint.

Baby B’s 1st Birthday

When my dear friend, Tracy, asked me to do the printables and dessert table for her son, Brendan’s first birthday, I was so honored. Tracy has amazing style and knew exactly the feel she wanted for Baby B’s party- modern, classy with a little bit of vintage. Tracy had picked the graphic marigold fabric for the tablecloth on the dessert table and wanted to use burlap and twine accents. She made the adorable paper mache bees for decorations and centerpieces and wrapped tin cans with twine to continue the vintage feel on the tables.For the dessert table, I stuck to treats that fit our gold, burlap and white color scheme. Yummy treats included beehive s’mores, caramel cheesecake shooters, honey popcorn, lemon parfaits, and store bought Oreo Cakesters decorate with chocolate stripes. The kids loved the bit of honey treat bags and honey taffy. For the backdrop picture, I simply sent the image of the bee that we used on the invitations to my local printer who enlarged it to fit our frame. The small frame on the table is a list of the many virtues Tracy and her husband, Charlie, wish for their son.Guest left with bumble gum tubes and Mason jars that Tracy had planted with sunflower seeds and a tag reminding them to “bee patient”. All the banners and labels were in the shape of a honeycomb. The entire bee collection including invitation, labels, banner, water bottle wraps, juice box covers and more is available for purchase at http://etsy.com/shop/bloomdesignsonline.

Gender Reveal Party for Baby Johnston

We threw a party for our closest friends & family, to find out the gender of our first baby. We had everyone choose a side, boy or girl, & wear pink or blue according to their guess. We went through the old wives tales to see what the old wives tales had to say about what our baby would be! We kept a tally on a chalk board, along with everyones votes. At one point during the party, we had everyone seperate into two teams, team pink & team blue. They had to draw what they thought our baby would look like. Their drawings were hilarious!We did not know the gender of our baby before the party. We had the ultrasound tech write it down & put it in a sealed envelope. I then gave the envelope to a dear friend & she made a cake, that had either pink or blue filling, according to what the tech wrote in the envelope. We cut the cake to reveal the gender, & it was a GIRL! It was so much fun finding out this big secret with our friends & family :) more on our blog: anwjohnston.blogspot.com

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.
