{trenna lange room}


I have been in love with this room since it was published in 2007..i love how Trenna Lange used pink with red and the punches of robin’s egg blue..I think I am tired of PINK all PINK girl rooms..dont get me wrong, I still like pink but nothing says little girl to me like a pair of red mary janes and RED CHECK!..i hope to get this rest of this article scanned and posted soon (before I lose the article) if someone has it already, please pass on..

and if you have any Heather Chadduck rooms not posted here, i would love to share..I am not sure where she will land once Cottage Living folds but I am sure it will be great..maybe she will infuse some life into Southern Living or Country Home but I bet she will end up at Domino or somewhere similar..let me know if you hear??

::heather chadduck again::

Time for another room from Heather Chadduck (Cottage Living, 2008)..love how casual and liveable the space is, the mix of fabrics without being too busy and of course the chalkboard!

::color inspiration::


I love how {this Young house} used color in this room (top image)..I still love blue and brown together but it is EVERYWHERE..this green really punches it up..also loving their clever closet headboard treatment in the master (bottom image)..i’ve always wanted reading lamps like that and the layering of drapes and fabrics looks great.

check out their blog for more, they are darling!

::Happy New Year::



May your year be filled with cute lamps and even cuter shades! (and I hope you find them on sale!)

P.S. that shade may just be inspiring a girl nursery!..love it!

::pine cone hill::


Layla Grace.com has a great selection of Bella Notte and Pine Cone linens (as well as others and free shipping!) i found this for a litte boy’s room..darling huh? BUT who really wants to spend $350 on a quilt (just the quilt) for a 4-5 year old!?? But isnt it cute?! and did I mention free shipping!

and rugs..oh they just have the best rug selection! sigh.

::bumper alternative::



this is new to me.. not sure if i like it or not..my friend Camille has always disliked bumpers but I think they seem cozy…of course I understand how they MIGHT not be safe but not sure if I totally buy it..Drew did stand on his so he could get out of the crib but who knows what he might have done with something like this?? I do think it looks sort of odd to have the fringe up top and not in the traditional bumper position??

**edited to say: I am expecting Baby #2..thought I had mentioned that here< igot questions inthe comments so thought i better make it clear!..SO there will be lots of nursery decor talk coming up so BEWARE!

RL bedding???


does anyone know the name of this blue patchwork quilt and shams??? I know it is an old RL pattern but long discontinued..do you know how many hits you get for “Ralph Lauren bedding” on ebay..wow! hoping i will stumble upon it in TJMaxx (for Drew’s big boy bed)BUT that may be a longshot.. in the meantime i bought this and it will work but for some reason i cant let go of the blue checks;;

Note: this nusery/toddler room is from Susie Brennan of Dallas, Texas in a 2000 BHG publication..Susie also had a great layout in BHG’s DIY mag about the same time..we love her right Windy?!;;

::merry Christmas::



The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

Luke 2:11 (New Living Translation)

::outside::


We are not outdoor light people..but we tried this year for our four year old..he loves the candy canes..i will spare you pictures BUT I do want to share my real live greenery…i love it, the simpler the better, just plain wreaths with simple ribbon (I would love to use fab ribbon outside but i believe it would bleed)..the M on the door is from Ballard..the have an artificial and a real..i bought the real..it is rather larger but once i put up the garland around the door and the wreaths on the windows, it all came together..thanks for looking!

::more Christmas::




A few more Christmas shots from around our home..notice how the cupcake stand is exploding..it has been a great wrap caddy..and the extra little stocking;;
