Art for Boys’ Rooms

Art for Boys’ Rooms

In putting together a new bedroom for our Little Man, along with a nursery for our baby girl, I’ve come across a ton of fun artwork. Obviously, I only had four walls in each room to work with, but check out the ones that got away for the big boy room (I’ll be back with more girly options soon)… {Amsterdam Canal Boats print by lauraamiss on Etsy} {Personalized Robot Alphabet Print 8×10 by AppleBlossomPrint on Etsy} {DIY Hand Print Canvases via Cheap Chic Nursery} {ABC Rock Print 11×14 at Land… View Post

Kid-Friendly Christmas Decorating

Kid-Friendly Christmas Decorating

I know it’s not even November yet, but I have been perusing all the lovely Christmas catalogues (not to mention Pinterest) and it’s got me feeling pre-emptively festive. Having kiddiewinks in the house can put limitations on your decor choices (glass ornaments and little hands are not a good combo) but there are plenty of gorgeous things out there that won’t pose a hazard to little ones.

Searching For A Side Table

Searching For A Side Table

I recently sold our oak side tables because, as nice as they were, their traditional style and medium-toned wood weren’t vibing with the rest of the room. Here they are in an old photo of our living room… (Incidentally, looking back on pics like this, it seems my attention to detail in photos has improved a lot since I started blogging. I mean really, I couldn’t have put away the highchair, play tunnel and coffee mug? Ah well.) I’ve replaced one with a trunk (I’ll post pictures soon) and am on the… View Post

I won this beauty: {Modern Damask Sand Rug by Rugs USA} Isn’t it pretty? I love it. But there’s more – Danika contacted me again to say that the 4×6 size I won wasn’t available but they could send me a 5×8 instead. Do… View Post

Things I’m Coveting

Things I’m Coveting

So it seems I was being overly optimistic when I said I was feeling better. My morning sickness has decreased, but it’s very far from gone, so there are still no new projects from me for now. That said, I have got lots of ideas, and I’ve spotted a lot of pretty things lately. I am in love with these gorgeous side tables from Ikea (Isala in grey, $179). I think one or two would be a lovely addition to our living room (see more of that on the home tour).… View Post
