Nursery Reveal

When we bought our house, the room that has since become H’s nursery was painted a garish shade of blue with sad, depressing fabric shades falling off of the windows. I knew that whatever the room ended up being, it would not look that way for long.

When we found out we were having another baby, I knew I wanted to keep the walls a neutral color for either a boy or girl. We decided to go with Benjamin Moore’s Alaskan Husky. With that being said, I wanted to introduce bright pops of primary colors to liven up the space. I found some great prints on Etsy to create a gallery wall. Babyish things are not really my style so I wanted items that could grow with H.

I knew I wanted a very soft and fluffy rug so ended up with a Moroccan shag that has a navy blue trellis pattern. We moved the sofa that was in M’s room (it’s great for middle of the night feedings), added in a gray dresser and a bookshelf from Safavieh and the room was complete.

I’m really happy with how the space turned out and I hope H can enjoy it for years to come!

I’m Back!

  
Hello again! It’s been a minute since I’ve written my blog and I thought it was well past time I started up again. A lot has changed since I last posted here.
Two weeks ago, the Husband and I became parents again to a baby boy! He’s fantastic and big sister M is adapting pretty well given the circumstances. 

We’ve also made many more changes to the house with more to come. As the weather gets warmer, there are more projects we’d like to tackle. I also want to do a complete kitchen overhaul, but that’s a much-larger, long-term project. In the meantime, I’ll be sharing some of the other projects here including the nursery and our family/playroom and mudroom area. 

It feels great to be back and I hope you’ll come along on the journey!
