lydia’s nursery

November 19, 2014

Well, friends, I think it’s finally time I got my bum in gear and posted pictures of baby girl’s nursery!  Since Lydia’s ten months old now, I figured I’d better post pictures of it before it’s time to change it into a big girl space.  To be fair, the nursery was 99% complete before she…

nursery reveal!

April 18, 2013

I have worked on my fair share of nurseries lately, but I am especially proud of how well this one turned out!  Themed nurseries kind of make me cringe….it’s so easy to go overboard with them, so I was ecstatic when all my client requested was a soft, muted color scheme, to only use items…

April 10, 2013

I’m a huge fan of mis-matched furniture in any room, but I especially love incorporating non-traditional pieces in nurseries and children’s spaces for a fun, unexpected twist!  My client and good friend already had this buffet and wanted to use it as a changing table in her baby boy’s nursery – the size, lines and…
