Nursery Planning

When we first moved in to our house, we weren’t certain this room would become a baby’s room.  But about 6 months later, I was pregnant and what had become a nice little office and guest room, had to start making way for baby number 3! Here’s what the room looked like when we first moved in.  As you can see, lots of natural light.  Not always a great thing in a baby’s room when you’re wanting them to sleep in the middle of the day!.

I poured over this picture for hours.  I love the mix of old and new, antiques and baby books, the dark moody walls, the bright rug, just adore.

Even though I knew I was having a boy, I was still drawn to this space.  As you saw in the before pictures, the room was BRIGHT.  So I needed a window solution.  This embroidered pelmut and coordinating ottoman is so fun.  I also love bamboo shades for texture and grown up lamps in kids’ rooms.

I love the Ikea Hemnes line, and I was pretty sure we’d be using this dresser in his room, so I loved this picture and how they styled that dresser and added different hardware to it!  And once again, another grown up lamp.

I pretty much adore anything by designer Lauren Liess.  This was her third baby’s nursery.  Once again the dark, moody walls, and I also loved how she didn’t make it feel super babyish.  Something about that really appealed to me this time around after doing two pretty bright and babyish nurseries before. nurseryinspiration5

Lastly, even with dark &  moody on my mind, I still couldn’t get away from my love of light and bright.  Plus I was just in love with the look of this rocker and ottoman.

The Montgomery House Office

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a little more of the house I’ve been working on for over a year- my first big project and a huge one at that.  Its really a dream come true for me (not to mention, for the amazing homeowners who have put their trust and faith in me!). The floors went in on this beauty last week and the family will be moving in this week, so exciting!

Here’s the office moodboard. The wall color is Dover Gray that I talked about last week. The husband is a hunter so we had to have a space for his antlers!

And now here is the real thing, just after the floor installation. Those built ins are beautiful and painted in White Dove.

Here’s a view looking from the office into the foyer (before the floors went in, obviously). I love the doorway moldings and little transom over the hallway entrance! The color in the foyer (and most of the rest of the house) is my ever-favorite Silver Dollar by Olympic.

Thanks for reading, have a great Monday!
