Some Life Updates & A Super Sweet Nursery Reveal
It feels like it's been ages since I wrote a blog post! *checks calendar* Well, it has been about three months -- nearly an entire season! -- since I've shared any design projects on here.
But I've had a good reason for not posting...I got married!!
The wedding day was absolutely beautiful and perfect. It was everything we wanted it to be. And it was a TON of work to get there! Which is why Nick and I collectively decided to pause on any house projects and design work in the months leading up to the wedding, so that the wedding could be the sole focus.
But now that the wedding is behind us, I am ready for the non-wedding creative juices to start flowing again and to pick back up on the projects I had set down. I've been eyeing our primary bathroom (may even start painting this weekend!) and starting to dream up a design for our basement/guest suite space (maybe something Moroccan inspired?)... it's invigorating to be thinking of house projects again!
Before I start sharing new projects, I owe you a reveal of the baby nursery I completed a couple months back. This was the sweetest of projects commissioned by my dear friends. This couple had been on a long journey to parenthood; and after years of ups and downs, they were finally able to welcome a new baby into their lives and start their family. They hired me to create a beautiful, nature-inspired space for their new baby girl to grow up in, and I was so honored to do this for them.
So let me walk you through the design, the process and of course, the reveal!
A room reveal is no good without some before photos. Here's what the room looked like pre-baby:
The Design Plan
The design plan for the nursery combined two of my favorite colors, sage and blush, and featured an incredible mountain landscape feature wall. The goal was to create a soothing nature-inspired space that a baby girl could grow into, and that contained just the right amount of pink to give a soft and feminine feel.
Once we finalized the design, our friends started purchasing items for the room, including this gorgeous peel-and-stick wallpaper mural that came all the way from Latvia. Despite some processing delays, the wallpaper came just in time. It was meant to be.
Nick and I spent an entire weekend prepping, painting, applying the wallpaper and putting the finishing touches on the room. It was definitely a labor of love!
The most gratifying moment of any design project is of course the reveal! This one was especially heartwarming, as my friends got to see their new baby's room all put together, a moment they've been waiting, hoping and praying for for years. When they finally got to see the space, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. It was truly such a special moment!
Take a look!
And there you have it! A very special room for a very special little lady.
