Nursery Mash Up | Denver Design


I am experiencing a bit of baby fever with friends having babies and getting ready to have babies. So it got me thinking about nursery design. I had so much fun designing my own daughters nursery. I chose lots of artwork from Etsy, vintage pieces from Decade in Denver, and modern goodies from Mod Livin’. I enjoyed mixing up some vintage with the modern pieces to create a whimsical and eclectic space for her as well as for myself. Because lets be honest those first couple of months we are pretty much living in there as well. I also wanted to find pieces that could grow with her. For example, all the art work I chose can very well carry her through into middle school, her dresser which doubled as a changing table she can have forever, and even the accessories are still appropriate for elementary school. I also didn’t want it to feel like a bought a whole room from one store. So, mix it up and have fun play with lots of different colors instead of just choosing one. Creating a space that feels calm, relaxing, and fun will really mean a lot when you are up for the 5th night in a row at 4 am.

Peep This!

One of my favorite pastimes is walking around the neighborhood in the evening and peeking into people homes –  not in the peeping into windows creepy sort of way. I know I am not the only one that loves seeing how the inside of other people’s homes look I am just brave enough to post it on a public blog for all the world to judge. Seriously, it’s not THAT weird I have much weirder character traits that I will probably also share at some point. I like to think of them as unique and even a bit quirky and what makes me so fun to be around even if it is to make you feel just a bit more normal. Okay, I completely digress. One of my favorite blogs that I read daily is Apartment Therapy . They have a regular feature with home tours of some truly fabulous places that I am constantly drawing inspiration from. Todays tour is The Wills’ who live in the RINO Art District in Denver. This place is AMAZING and they need to invite me over for cocktails so I can hijack their style immediately.
