Five on Friday – Friday Favorites

Because this week has really been a blur, we’ve had zero favorite things and zero happenings other than July 4th. When Monday is a holiday, you take off Tuesday to travel back home, you are really thrown off Wednesday morning, and you for sure don’t think Friday is Friday. Hallelujah to getting back to normal next week.

SOOOO – Since I’ve been summering it up lately, and I’m lacking in the design department, I’m sharing a few of my favorite spaces I’ve created over the past couple of years.
Linking up as always for FIVE ON FRIDAY and FRIDAY FAVORITES

 

ONE:
What started it all……not that it was the first nursery for me to work on, but it was the first to get a few likes on FB, and probably the nursery that finally made me create a website.  Sweet Mila’s nursery is one for the books. Gold and white stripes with touches of pink make this one of my favorite girl nurseries. You would never know that it’s definitely the smallest space I’ve transformed.

TWO:
Paige’s entire house is my favorite. Slowly but surely, we will complete her entire home, but until then, you can just stare at Mr. Griffin’s man room. Because he lives in a house with four other females, a major dude room was on the agenda!

THREE:
Speaking of Paige’s house, I love, love her family room. A good bookshelf is always needed! Thank goodness Paige knows a little something about outfit styling when it comes to family photos. This giant canvas is the perfect addition and wasn’t planned at all.

FOUR:
My absolute favorite, favorite was my first house ever. The kitchen, laundry room and the master bathroom were amazing if I do say so myself. Someone please tell me why we moved??

FIVE:
Not design related at all, but if you didn’t read my July 4th round up – check it out here. We love Rotan time!

Happy weekend friends! Here’s to a weekend of playing catch up before we go again.

One Room Challenge – Week 4

It’s now week 4, and that kinda scares me a little. Mainly because we only have two weeks left in the One Room Challenge, and also because JM could possibly have a baby by then. I’m thinking very doubtful since that would work out too perfectly for this challenge.

Since we aren’t starting from scratch with this room, I feel like the updates are a little boring. However, we have more furniture!  The chair came in this week, and we decided on a rug. The chair is a linen color, and the rug compliments it and the crib skirt nicely.
See what you think!

TO DO:
~Remove TV
~Hang curtain rod/drapes
~Purchase floor lamp
~Have a baby!

So Nick, he’s the baby daddy– if you’re reading this, I know you have nothing else on your plate right now, but I need a TV removed and a curtain rod hung, please, sir!

Remember what we’re striving for!

One Room Challenge – Week 2

It’s week two of the One Room Challenge, and it’s time to share the vision for the space. This cozy little room will soon be transformed, but we won’t know until possibly week 5 or 6 what the finishing touches will look like.

Let’s take a look back at the before pics just to refresh your memory….because we’ve all slept since last Thursday. Remember from my post last week, we’re keeping that fab wallpaper and planning the nursery around it. Everything else, gotta go!

Ok, on to the fun stuff – let’s see what this sweet baby’s room will look like . This has become quite common for me lately, as I’ve had several clients wait to find out the gender of their baby. Notice the big items will be the same, whether girl or boy. The details will be finished out once baby Mourton arrives. It’s ok to come 2 or 3 weeks early, I have a room to finish, sweet baby!!

We’re keeping it simple! No crazy projects, no DIY, no shipping anything from Europe (yes, I’ve been known to not read where something is coming from), just simple and easy. Just what a 34 week pregnant mamma needs! (and hubby for that matter)

Everything has been ordered that can be ahead of finding out the gender. The crib and dresser are in route, chair has been ordered, and we purchased the side table and crib skirt. We love the details of the crib so much, we are keeping the bedding minimal. No bumpers and a simple white sheet will look great with this fun crib skirt

What’s on the todo list for week 2?
~Finding the right blackout drapes
~Perfect gold curtain rod

~Sourcing plush rug
~Mirror
~Lamp

Make sure to check back weekly for progress on the room.
WEEK ONE

Oh, and my guess is boy, even though I’ve been dying to order that amazing multi-colored leopard pillow!!
