adorn your NEST

I know, I know.  It's been a while since I've blogged!  Can you tell the weather is getting warmer here?!  I love beach and boat weather!  I hope everyone had a beatiful Mother's Day!  Kevin and I took our families to brunch for Mother's Day.  We were lucky because my Grandmother was in town visiting too!  It was great having both of our families together.  We will cherish these moments. 

More recenly I've been working on ideas and inspirations for two of my best childhood friends' nurseries!  It has been so much fun reconnecting with these ladies!  We have just laughed and picked up where we left off!  I can remember giggling for hours on end with Lori (the girl is hilarious) and having skating recitals with Seana in our garages....and charging our neighbors to watch us!  HAHAH!  Great memories!  It's so hard to believe that we are old enough to be married...and now babies?!  As they say, time flies when you're having fun~

I am so excited to share these two nurseries with you after they are completed.  Seana is having a sweet baby boy.  Her bedding is so spunky and the colors are so vibrant!  We decide to paint a playful design tree near the crib!  Can't wait for you to see the color combos!  Lori has decided to make the sex of their baby a surprise to everyone...even themselves!  (how is she doing it?!)  We are working on sprucing up the room with the extras including a refinished nightstand...AND the lighting~!  I am so excited to get another opportunity with a chandelier!  Her colors have a soft grey/blue with a punch of Red!  Love it ladies!  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to make your nurseries my canvas. 

I found a book about decorating nurseries that I just ordered from Serena and Lily.  It's called, "Nursery Style 101."  I can't wait to get it in the mail.  Briefly the book breaks down 4 steps that go into designing your nursery.  Step #1-Define your Style (Classic, Vintage, Modern, Ecletic).  Step #2-Choose your Palette.  Step #3-Furnish your Room.  Step #4- Adorn your Nest.  I love how the book describes Step #4!  "Now it's time for pure fun. Selecting the artwork and accessories for your nursery is another chance to infuse the space with personality and make your mission truly one of a kind. Remeber to stay true to what you love, to what inspires you and holds meaning for you.  You'll spend oh-so-many hours staring at these walls. Make sure you'll be gazing at something you love."  I could not have said it better myself!
