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!

    Thanks so much for featuring us! It was such a pleasure to decorate! Here are the answers to the above questions.
    Allison – Thanks so much! The lamp is from Land of Nod. I adore it and think it can go anywhere in the house (not just a nursery!).
