Big Boy Room Update

Big Boy Room Update

As I’ve mentioned, the Little Man’s new big boy bedroom is finally painted, and today we assembled an Expedit to add storage for all his toys. Now that I’m ready to start pulling the rest of the room together, I went back to my original design board and gave it an update. Here’s the latest: I dropped some of the accessories from my original design, and lost the dresser (which is going to stay in the nursery) and the mirror (which I just stole and hung in our living area… View Post

Master Bedroom Musings: A Neutral Bedroom Mood Board

Master Bedroom Musings: A Neutral Bedroom Mood Board

I’ve been contemplating our master bedroom again, and I’ve pulled together a neutral bedroom mood board, full of neutral colours and layered textures. While nothing is likely to change in the near future, I do have plans for if/when we next move. In fact, I’ve just created a new Pinterest board dedicated solely to Pretty Bedrooms… have a gander.

Nursery Design Board

Nursery Design Board

Back before baby number two was on the horizon, I put together a thoroughly girly nursery design board.

I found a substitute rug for the Pottery Barn Kids one in my original design – this one from Dash & Albert. I think I love… View Post

I’ve been playing around with ideas for a baby girl’s nursery – hopefully one day I can make this a reality! We’d keep S’s crib, rocker, bookshelf and dresser (I purposely picked pieces that could work for either sex). The wall colour could also work for a boy should an expected “she” turn out to be a “he” (as happened to one of my best friends, who had prepped everything in pink and found out at something like 8 months pregnant that their little one was very definitely not a girl).… View Post

More Master Bedroom Ideas

I’ve been playing around with ideas for how to finish our master bedroom. I’m still not sold on which bedding to go with but I have ordered these two sets… West Elm Organic Pin Tuck Duvet Set in Sea Grass Crate and Barrel Poloneesi Duvet Set I might end up returning one or both of them, I’m still not sure. They were both on sale and almost sold out, so I felt a bit rushed! I did decide to paint a striped feature wall behind our bed, which I should… View Post
