bookshelf | rug | crib | ottoman | play gym | earmuffs Just like her dear ol’ dad, our little Lucy Bear loves her hats! Her head is super cute, but a girl’s gotta protect herself from the elements sometimes, ya know? You may have seen this little guy pop up from time to time […]

DIY Closed Terrarium + a Kit Round-Up!

There are a few things that you might have noticed around our home that, after hanging with us for a while, should come as no surprise. Think: white bedding (always), navy accents, pale pink something. Velvet everything. Brass. Marble. Terrariums. Dinosaurs! Okay, but let’s get serious about those last two (ha!). We absolutely love adding greenery […]

A Cozy, Neutral (and Tiny) Nursery Reveal!

rocker | ottoman | rug | end table | sconce | ultrasound print | curtains | shades We put the finishing touches on Lucy’s nursery at the tail end of last year, hanging the last piece of artwork and folding the final blanket into place right around the holidays. And then, we waited, but luckily, not too long! Creating a room for our little girl was one of our favorite makeovers […]

A Multi-Functional Nursery Closet On a Budget

dresser + hardware | door knob | mirror | changing pad | pail | baskets (natural, white) This post is in partnership with Homes.com. We first began planning for the nursery closet way back in January – before this room was a nursery and better known as The Scary Room. Because the room itself is long and skinny (as is typical […]

A Pretty In Pink Closet

Although the large pieces in the room will be mostly neutral, we always planned on injecting a touch of color in the closet, especially with the off-white walls in […]

A Quick + Easy Mirror Makeover Using Rub ‘N Buff

With all the muchlargerprojects on our plate as of late, it is extremely satisfying to check off a quick, (way) less-than-one-hour job. You saw in our closet plans that we’ll be hanging a mirror above the changing table, and being the vintage mirror hoarders that we are, we had plenty to choose from! For a hot second, […]

Planning for a (Pink!) Multi-Functional Nursery Closet
