E-Design Neutral Nursery

If you remember, way back, almost a year now, I did an E-Design for my sister in law that was pregnant with her THIRD boy. Yes, her third, so this needed to be a sweet baby boy nursery using both his big brothers’ furniture. I really just put something together that was partly my brother, yet simple and chic enough for my SIL. 

Remember this design board? Well, she ran with it, and I can take NO credit for pulling it all together. She did it all herself, and now it’s the perfect little space for a future chic hunter! (Don’t tell my brother we named it that!)

She kept all her existing furniture from the older two boys, and then added the fun. The antler sconce puts off the right amount of light when feeding that sweet boy at night. 

Can we talk about this wallpaper? It’s the perfect, subtle addition of animal print without being too much….and did I mention, my dad installed it? #IwishHeLivedInDallas

Roman shades in a nursery are a great choice since most already come with blackout liner. They keep the room a little more masculine without the fluff of curtains. (If I’ve used curtains in your boy’s nursery, I promise they look good!)

I really do enjoy doing E-Design and then watching it come to life through pictures. When I can’t be in the same town as the client, it’s the next best thing!  This nursery will be able to grow with sweet Knox as he gets older.

Project Nursery May Room Finalists

Woohoo – I’m so excited y’all. Project Nursery has named their May Room Finalists, and sweet Griffin’s has been chosen. What that means – I shared this nursery a couple of weeks ago on the Project Nursery online gallery which is a place where anyone can upload pictures of a nursery for others to get inspiration. Each month, they choose five projects they like the most, and then let the readers vote on which they like best. Out of all the projects, Griffin’s black and white nursery made the top five. Now, here’s where you come in. For the next week, you can vote once a day on your favorite, which I’m sure will be Griffin’s. Click HERE and vote for the Black and White nursery to help push us to the top.
Here’s a look back in case you haven’t seen the room yet.

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!!

Miss Mila Poppy’s Nursery

 When I found out one of my best friends was pregnant with a girl, I knew we had to make it the best nursery yet! Jenny and I went to Tech together, were sorority sisters, moved to Dallas together after graduating, were in each others weddings and pregnant with our daughters at the same time.

Jenny knew she wanted to keep it clean, crisp and white, but with a few girly touches. She already had a mirrored chest she wanted to use in the room so we added golds and pinks for a soft metallic nursery. We ordered this crib which is just the right size for the room along with the softest bedding ever!

She has a great window seat in the room where we added these simple white roman shades.

Isn’t MVP such a great monogram?

The pink unicorn is from Etsy and we knew we had to work it into the space somehow.

Thank you Jenny and Josh for letting me have a part in Miss MP’s room. Hopefully Miss MP and AB will grow up to be just as good of friends as their momma’s.
