Aug27 polka dots & baby 2013
Oh for crying out loud! The gold polka dots, I love you.
Here’s a sweet little note from Melanie, the mom:
We designed her nursery to have a soft, modern vibe. There wasn’t one overall theme but rather hints of travel, bold prints and animals. I placed several special touches such as a teacup from my sister that I used as a vase, the note that her dad wrote the morning she was born, and art prints that I hand painted to be reminiscent of some of my favorite prints by Anna Rifle Bond. It was such a thrill the first night we came home from the hospital and were able to change her, hold her, and rock her to sleep in the nursery. We had spent so much time creating a room for her that it was surreal to actually be there with her!

Jul23 Sophie 2013
I know I say this all the time, but this really is one of my favorite nurseries. The lighting and the fun geometric shapes with the quirky wall art, all in the most precious color palette, it just makes me smile.
Here’s the beautiful mother and decorator extraordinaire Alexis to tell you more about it:
“I was so excited to gather fun finds for my Sophie’s room. I wanted to stick to a palette of grey, mint, peach, and white for a fresh clean feel. I mixed vintage, and flea market finds with geometric shapes for a subtle, quirky vibe. I adore the Restoration Hardware conversion crib, and the zig zag rug from Rugs USA. Although the leather geo mobile is more for decor than to soothe my baby to sleep, it was won by my sister -in-law through Instagram, and still remains one of my favorite oddities of her room.The hand painted Sophia sign was made custom from a dear friend of mine, and will always be a cherished memento of my pregnancy, and journey into parenthood. Now that our little human is born it is so much fun to see her in the room that I made for her- and I cannot wait for her to grow up and make memories in it.”

My favorite part of this nursery is the hero wall art! Good art can make or break a nursery and Etsy is always such a great place to discover quirky and one of a kind art that’s the perfect fit for your nursery. Also, I LOVE the pink tutu!

Jul01 Carousel Birthday Party 2013
What an adorable first birthday in a carousel theme!!! The cake with the small copper horses, the bow on the gold candle, the birthday hat…just a few of my favorite things.
Photography: Little Red Wagon Photography
How to make the carousel cake: ”I ended up buying a package of little plastic toy horses from the dollar store, and painting them gold. I then cut some cute paper straws in half, and then hot-glued the horses in the middle of the straws, so the straw was the pole. It was great, because then I could stick them right into the cake and it gave pretty good support. I then cut out paper and more fabric scraps and used double-sided tape to get the fabric to stick to the little canopy I made to go on top of the carousel. It worked out better than expected – I had no idea how it would turn out when I started cutting things out!”
