Blossom {a completed girl nursery}





It's a great Monday when I have a completed nursery to share with you all.  I shared a few photos on Instagram already, but here is the room in its entirety.  This room was very special for me to be a part of because I got to design it for a mommy who is like a third sister to me.  It is my youngest sisters best friend since elementary school.  Not only did I get to come up with the design, but I also got to see the room in person, which I never get to do.  Since I do E-design I only ever get to see photos of the spaces I work so hard in creating.  This was such fun for me.  Now enough talking...enjoy the photos.

Getting caught up {being mom and designer}

Pardon me as I hang my head for being so bad at keeping up with this blog.  Who knew it would be so hard to stay on top of saying hello and sharing all that I have been up to!  I've been busy busy helping lovely ladies pull together beautiful spaces in their homes.  Whether it be nurseries or their family rooms, I have truly enjoyed how 2015 ended for me business-wise.  Now that it is 2016 I can say I feel like I've just been juggling getting back into the swing of things and trying to keep my fam healthy.  Who else has been hit with this winter cold?!  As I type this I have both kids home from school and will be heading to a doctors apt soon for Emerson.  Fun, fun.  This is when I am so thankful that I work from home so that I can just take a time-out from designing to take care of my littles.  Unfortunately, this does sometimes mean sending a quick email to clients apologizing that I may need an extra day in finishing their design.  I have to say though, I'm one very lucky lady because I have the most understanding clients and I am so grateful for them.  With all that being said, I thought I'd share a design I recently finished up so that this post isn't just me talking about ME.

Where, oh where, have I been? {e-design boards}

I'm still here.  I've been working away on client designs, being mom and trying to grasp how on earth today is December 1st!!  Can you believe it?  I know I can't.  Although I don't have much to say today, I always like to share some visuals with all of you on what I've been up to.


Out of respect for my paying clients I do not share sources. Please email me if you have specific questions.

Minted.com {inspiring a nursery design}

I am asked often where my favorite website is to search for cute art.  My first response is always Minted.com.  I constantly draw inspiration from the varying styles of art they make available.  Having such a collection of different artists' work all in one place makes my job so much easier.  I was cruising through the art selection today as I usually do and came across this print that just made me stop:

It just reminded me of the good ol' days of creative play.  Playing telephone with cans and string.  When I saw it I just knew it would look perfect in a little boy's nursery.  So, what do I do when I'm inspired by a piece of art?  Make a design board of course.  



The feather wall art and the Canned Love piece are both from Minted. The yellow 'happy' wall sign is from Target. The amazing gold wall sconces are from Triple Seven Home.  The geometric rug and the triangle pillow are both from West Elm.  The light wood rocking chair is from Ikea.  The amazing two-toned crib of white and wood is from Babyletto. And lastly, never forget it is a great idea to add some greenery to your space and you can't go wrong with a fiddle leaf fig tree in a great basket.





I was contacted by Minted.com to share a post involving their new art.  All of my opinions and inspiration came from me.  I am an avid supporter of Minted.com and hope you all are inspired by their pieces too.

Copper knobs round-up

I've been on the hunt for new knobs for our Ikea Hemnes dresser....you know the dresser?  The trusty, white beast of a dresser that you see everywhere?  Yup, I have it too...but, I want to jazz it up a bit.  I was thinking a touch of copper would be fun.  I've suggested many knobs to clients from these following companies that I adore, but my budget isn't always that large.  Here are the knobs that I'd love to grab for our dresser...






For all of you that are familiar with the Hemnes dresser, it needs 12 knobs or 4 knobs and really spaced out pulls which usually are costly as well.  But for anyone else in this predicament I have a more cost effective option....Target!!!  Shocker right?  My favorite store had these little goodies in-stock the other day. 

I can't find them online yet, but they come in a set of 4 for $12.99...not too shabby.  We'll see if this ends up being my route I choose.  I'm thinking it is a great alternative for me to get that touch of copper at a lower budget.

Making an entrance {a completed entry room}

I'm still playing catch up for all the fun photos I received this summer from clients.  This is the last of the three rooms I did for one of my clients whose nursery and big boy room I shared below.  This room is their entry room.  I think it is safe to say this room is welcoming and a perfect representation of my clients' personalities. The best part was that my client no longer hates her existing brown couch like she did before.  Yay for that!!
Here is the design board I created for them.
And here is the completed space.

Big Boy room {after photos}

I shared the nursery from my client in the previous post, but this room is just as special because it is for the big brother!!  This little guy needed a cool room because he is just the raddest little man.  Bright and colorful was the way to go.  Here is the design concept I created for my client:
And here are the after photos.  As with many designs we tweak as we go and it just so happened that an amazing mid century dresser appeared on Craigslist and it was a must for the space!
