    ohhh, I love it, I think the colors are so pretty!! I cant wait to see more!

  5. Ashley says:

    Fantastic colors! I cannot wait to see everything come together!

  6. I love spaces that are inspired by items with a family history. It looks like this space will definitely be outside of the traditional blue boy nursery that we all see, and I can’t wait for you to share the progress!

  7. Kristin says:

    i adore it! The colors are so fun!

    part of what is so wonderful about planning for a baby in your family is that you get to do what you like not what is expected of you! the family piece from your mom is so sweet and a great jumping off point. The colors are happy and fresh and very you. I giggled at your last comment. When I was eight months pregnant with my last child (and the only one I knew the gender of) I wanted a certain quilt. I asked family for gift cards to a store that carried it for Christmas and went ahead and painted the room colors to coordinate. Well, I went to order it and was told it was not available anymore. The customer service rep asked what it was for and suggested some totally baby quilt that would NOT do at all. I wanted a boy look but not screaming boy. The lady was insistent that my husband suggest that to me and finally said to her, ” well, you suggest that to an 8 1/2 month hormonal pregnant lady and I’ll just sit here and listen to her response.” We went with something similar to what I originally wanted. You know what you like…go for it!!!! Happy Times : )

    It’s super cute. And I’m right there with you. I have a good majority of baby boy’s nursery figured out but haven’t yet pulled the trigger on ordering. What’s our problem?? HA! We both need to just buck up and do it b/c if you’re anything like me your nesting instinct has kicked in major and you’re ready to see that room come together and get the little baby wipes and everything else necessary in there!

  18. Oh woaw…this is amazing..looove the roof /Marie

  19. Franki Parde says:

    Don’t you just love Tobi Fairley…her color combos are “state of the times!” franki

  20. Anna says:

    Lovely start to the room. I like the original colour combo and your source of inspiration. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    I laughed out loud at this comment…
    “I’m starting to freak out that we only have a little over 90 days until the newest family member arrives.”

    A little over 90 days? You hope you do – bub will decide when to enter the world. First rule about babies, they are in charge!

    Enjoy your last 90 or so days of quiet time, and prepare yourself for the most wonderful moments of your life – they are about to come and smack you right between the eyes.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
