Here is a bit of inspiration for a girly room that isn’t too girly. It’s sophisticated and has some feminine details, but the mix of modern touches keep it grounded. I can’t get enough of InaLuxe – might have to snag a piece for the new nursery! I have used that glider a few times lately in style boards, but I finally saw it in person last week, and sat in it, and it’s just as lovely as you might imagine as well as incredibly comfortable. The back comes up really high, too, which is a plus. It’s challenging to find a glider that has a taller back, and that drove me crazy about the glider in Vivi’s room. I would be so tired, and couldn’t lean my head back . . . I’m hoping we can get one that is a bit taller, but tailored, this time around. I’m dreaming about the Empire Rocker . . .
I have always loved this Domino room from a few years back:Since today is a big day for our nation, I thought it would be fun to do a nursery inspired by this room, perhaps a little less political and a bit more patriotic:I’m a big fan of that wallpaper. (Spoiler: we may or may not be using some of the black version in Peanut #2′s room). I hope you get out to vote today! I was a little worried about voting with a toddler in tow, but we had the nice surprise of no line!

Some fun inspiration with a fall feel . . . I love that ceramic bear speaker! What a fun addition for a nursery or playroom. We use an old iPhone as a sound machine and music player and that little bear is considerably more adorable than the utilitarian speakers we currently have. (And, p.s. don’t forget to enter the photography giveaway if you are in the Atlanta area!)
