Em’s baby boy will be here in under a month….and we’ve finally got his room cleaned out and decorated for him!

It took a while to decide the color scheme. Emily kept on going back and forth between a b+w nursery or using softer neutrals of grey + cream. Grey and cream and natural wood tones felt more cozy and babyish, so eventually this color scheme won.

Once we decided on color it was time for the star statement wall, which really makes the room. It was a labor of love and took a really long time, but it was worth it! Come back tomorrow to find out the nitty-gritty of this process.

Jane is now 21 months so will make the transition to a toddler bed in just a few months. Her crib HERE will eventually make it into baby boy’s room.

His clothes are washed, diapers are stocked in his room ready. Now if we could just decide on his name! ‘Ben’ is up on the door for a trial run.

Do you have any boys names you are loving? We need some help!

I have spring fever, how about you?

Pillow fever always starts with the weather change.
Away with heavy winter layers and in with the new…

I cannot believe the price of these pillow covers!

Changing to all down inserts means you really can change up pillows seasonally with covers like these for $5 or $6 dollars a pop.

They feel so much nicer than synthetic fill and give you a designer high-end look. These inserts are a crazy low price!

 Can I have them all please?!

She found these little plaques at Hobby Lobby.

They cost $2.99 for a 4-pack.

She gave each plaque two coats of chalkboard paint (any brand will work).

Next she used THIS fine tip chalkboard pen to write her signs.
