goody gumdrops baby room ideasSome brightly colored, candy coated inspiration today since Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  Vivi is also really into this stuffed camel she found at my parents’ house, so I thought that photo above was really sweet.  One of her favorite babysitters studied abroad and went to Morocco last summer, and shower her a picture or herself riding a camel.  Since then, we are all about camels and going to Africa!


Joni Lay"I know - that pendant is beautiful! We are getting it for our bedroom! "

Joni Lay"Aww, so glad, Emily! Happy to know you are inspired.:) "

Emily Wignall"just stumbled on your blog today and so, so happy i did! i spent at least an hour perusing …"

Brianne Heape"Oooh, I love that Jenny Lind chair. And i've been eyeing that Marmont Pendant since the first time I saw …"


boy nursery ideasExciting news!  My nephew, little Henry, arrived last Thursday!  He is perfect, and I can’t wait to get to hold him again.  I’m excited to get to share his room today (see inspiration here).  It was fun to get to work with my sister on a room for a boy, since we’re used to girl rooms over here.  His space is really great, with super high 10′ ceilings and a huge open window with a pretty green view.  I’m sure he is going to love getting to play and (hopefully) sleep here!boy nursery ideasI love the Skip crib.  It’s so pretty in person, and it’s a great crib in a mid-price range.  That giraffe print is from a really small page from an old book from the 1800’s that we purchased from etsy, scanned in, and then re-printed at a much larger scale.  boy nursery ideasThe changing table came from an estate sale, and makes a perfect changing table.  The gallery wall includes a photo of Ashley’s parents, Kemble’s parents, and a photo of themselves.  That leather triangle mobile from the Alison Show will definitely keep little Henry entertained during diaper changes.  The changing table tray is like the one in Vivi’s nursery (super simple and inexpensive project!), but with little ball feet added for a bit of height.  Those arrows came from here, and we hung them with washi tape.boy nursery ideasThat picture of Kemble is from Ashley’s baby shower.boy nursery ideasMy dad helped make the bookshelf according to their spec, and it turned out so sweet!  He made it with a removable back panel, so it can easily be repainted for an easy update if they ever want it.boy nursery ideasThe only thing missing is something with his sweet name on it.  It was a surprise (so fun!) so it isn’t up yet.  Hope you enjoyed the little tour of baby Henry’s new room, and congratulations to Ashley and Kemble on his arrival!  Hope you two are soaking up all the sweet, snuggly moments, and getting rest when you can!

Krista"one of my favorite nurseries! "


I love this beautiful, bright and airy nursery Kelly put together for her twins, Charlie and Sloane.  It’s perfectly neutral for a boy and girl pair!  And how adorable is it that she calls them “the Little Franks”?  Read more about her adventures with her twins here and read more about her inspiration for the room here.

Here is a not-so-pink revision of a mermaid inspiration board for your little fish out of water.  I had a hard time deciding on a wall color – this collection also looks great on a sweet aqua, a punchy navy, or even a light yellow!
