Zoe’s Toddler Room

18 Mar

So since Zoe has been getting more and more active and creative, I decided to update her room to make it more fun and toddler friendly.

My favorite addition to the space is the playhouse canopy from Land of Nod. Zoe is obsessed and it’s now our favorite spot to cozy up and read a good book.

Peekaboo!

You might notice I switched out the rug, FYI cotton rugs with kids are a nightmare to clean.
This one is a little on the rough side and it came a little damaged, so I ended up getting an incredible deal on it thanks to Overstocks amazing customer service. So I’m keeping it for now because I love the print. I plan to get a larger sheepskin to go over it instead of the two small ones since Zoe loves anything and everything soft and furry.

To free up some more space we moved the crib to the other side where the dresser/changing table used to be. And since we still weren’t ready to give up the changing pad we moved it to the ikea bookcase.

I also made a couple changes to the gallery wall. The owl print is by Kelli Murray, her work is amazing.

I’m still so in love with this glider, and of course the cuddles that come with it.

With Zoe’s book collection growing daily I needed a better storage solution. I’ve always loved the Ikea ledge book walls and now she has her very own!

I had so much fun rearranging and decorating her room and I’m so happy my little client loves it too!

Zoe’s Nursery

17 Oct

Baby Zoe 0019

I’m so excited to share Zoe’s nursery with you, each time I walk into this space it makes me so happy.

Her nursery turned out exactly how I wanted it to. A space that was peaceful for a baby but could also be a space she could grow up in without having to completely redecorate.

And it of course had to have a lot of style so mommy could enjoy it as well!

The “For Like Ever” print is one of my favorites and seriously makes the room.

Don’t you think?

Both the window and closet drapes I bought at Ikea and embellished with grosgrain ribbon and pom pom trim. I’m obsessed and of course love the fact that they were super inexpensive.

She is the cutest little bundle and we are absolutely head over heels in love with her.

I have been busy busy with her so I’ve had to put the blog on the back burner for awhile…but I’ll try and post when this little princess will allow me.

In other news, I just got her nursery photographed so I hope to have that up soon! You are going to love it!!

Hi All!

The Crib

9 Jul

My close friends know but most of you don’t…I have the worst time making decisions!

Especially when it comes to ordering something online and potentially not being able to return it.

So it’s unfortunate that all the cribs I like are online only. Really great!

I’ve narrowed it down to 3 and now it’s decision making time, because I really want to get this nursery done before she comes…here’s hoping!

The first option is the Olivia by Baby Mod

I like the modern clean lines, not loving the dark base, so I most likely will end up painting it.

Next is the Hudson by Babyletto

Again love the clean lines, but do you think it’s girly enough. Maybe it’s just the name thats throwing me off.

And my final option would be the Jenny Lind. It’s classic, it’s feminine, and I love the idea of throwing modern bedding with the vintage feel.

So basically the overall feel I want for the nursery, is not matchy matchy but more of an eclectic, modern mixed with vintage pieces.

The other pieces I have in there right now, is an antique dresser and the Ikea Expedit bookshelf. I’m just torn where to go with the crib… I love both styles equally.

So of course the only rational thing to do is blog about it and hopefully get some feedback from you guys, that always seems to help this crazy indecisive girl.

Thank you in advance : )

Bathroom & Belly

22 Jun

Hi!!

Wow I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last post.

I apologize for such a long absence, it’s just been so crazy over here.

We (mainly the husband) have been working on the bathroom every night and weekend to get it done before the baby shower on July 1st! yikes! We have one week left and still have a good amount to get finished.

paint bathroom & hallway walls and trim

seal tile and grout

install shower trim

install toilet

install pedestal sink

install faucet

hang mirror

install vanity and chandelier light

finish electrical (fan, switches etc)

install door hardware

install shelves

install towel and tissue fixtures

Woo!! Did I forget anything?

Anyway here are some progress shots so you can see what we’ve been up to.

We decided to open up the wall to install a pocket door, which has made a huge difference for the space.

IMG 9363

Here it is all framed up and installed. I love it!

IMG 9365

So here we got the tub in, insulation in, and are starting to drywall.

IMG 9389

The drywall going up has made a huge difference, now we could really visualize it!

Day 2 of tile install! (I’m saving the finished tile for the reveal)

IMG 9394

And now today has been all about paint, Left to Right: Wickham Gray, Horizon and Moonshine all Benjamin Moore colors. We actually already primed the walls, tinted to Horizon so that’s why you can barely see it.

We are painting tonight so I’ll surprise you with the color I chose ; )

Oh and by the way I’m 30 weeks as of yesterday! Yeee!!

Here’s a belly shot from week 29

Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Wish us luck on wrapping this bathroom up! My poor husband will be busy all weekend ; )

Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
