Down The Rabbit Hole

Ugh, as I mentioned yesterday I'm trying to put together a little post on must have baby gear for new moms and totally got sucked down the rabbit hole of infant website mania...so much cute, if ridiculously unnecessary stuff out there...but one project I can fully get behind is decorating for little ones...putting together a nursery for Lila was a blast and now I'm in the process of switching her stuff over to our old room and then re outfitting her old room for lil girl No. 2...The best thing about kid's rooms is that you can indulge all your crazy, printed, pink fantasies and they just gobble it up.... here's a sneak peek at the first stage:

I know, a little over the top- but we decided to keep her in a full size bed since I STILL end up sleeping with her for half the night (crazy, huh?)...so we just turned our old bed sideways and combined all the girliest pillows & bedding from around the house - no shopping involved...now I just need to rehang all the leftover paper flowers from her first birthday above the bed, frame some art, etc...
With my new found minimalism it's fun to still have a couple of rooms full of print and color, yes??
xoxo, M

  6. In all of your spare time could you help me with Emerson's room. It's a crazy mess of yellow, hot pink, blue, blah, blah, blah. I love what you've done with Lila's big girl room. It's sweet but in a fun and sophisticated way. Well done.

  8. Love the room. Love the poofy flowers. I am thinking of hanging paper airplanes from the tot's ceiling over his bed. And I know what you mean by the baby stuff. It gets overwhelming. I used my sling quite a bit and unlike others, I loved using a Moses Basket.
    Best,

  9. Love this room! I would definitely hang out in there. I also have to say that I too end up sleeping half the night with my son (he's 2.5) and I feel like it's my deep dark secret....it so sad that I'm ashamed I've been unable to discover a method for getting him to sleep through the night, alone.

  10. It's absolutely dreamy, and I think my favorite part is the patchwork curtain. Did you make it?
