Yesterday I received the cutest nursery pictures from Elizabeth DeLaney. She purchased four of our bird prints. The prints vary in color from blue, beige, green, pink and a hint of red. All in pastel colors, very subtle. They worked really well with the colors in her nursery. The colors of the space remind me of the colors from this post here. Great choices. I also liked how she arranged the frames. It looks very cute. And I am really digging that rocking chair. Thanks for sharing Elizabeth!

If you are looking for some inspiration for a girl’s room you must check this room out. Take some time to look at each photo and discover all the details. I love the panels on the walls and the mixture of colors and wall paper. It really helps to divide the room creating little spaces for different uses. The bookshelf is the perfect height for a child. There is a great use of storage space all around. I particularly like the storage space under the bed. The lighting is wonderful. And you can never go wrong with white, pink and green. So take a look around and get inspired.

I just received photos from Kate Araujo showcasing her cute nursery. Kate bought three bird prints for her nursery and set them up above the crib as the main focus of that wall. The artwork is flanked by two beautiful tree decals. I love the bedding and the color scheme of the room overall. Very soothing. I am sure I said this before, but I will say it again, I love, love, seeing photos from rooms that have one of our products. I adore seeing how I participated in that beautiful project. So Kate, thank you so, so much for sharing. Good luck to you and your family. Your nursery looks adorable.

11:28 on Sunday. I just finished watching the Julie and Julia movie. What an adorable movie. I strongly recommend if you have not watched yet. It makes me want to learn how to cook even more. I found it very inspirational as well. I can’t believe someone can cook 524 new recipes in one year. What have I been doing it the Kitchen? Cheers to Julie Powell! With food in my mind, I looked for some food prints. Love this one from Lucky Blue Bird. As Julia Child would say, Bon Appetit.

When I saw the work from photographer Sharon Montrose it was love at first sight. Her animal series is truly amazing. I find myself staring at each image longer than I should. But they are so inviting and intriguing that I can't help. I want to study all the animals and even touch them to see if they are real. And they are indeed. I am looking for a place at my house to have a few of these prints. They would be a great addition to either Bela or Marcus’ room. But unfortunately, I don’t have any walls left in their room for artwork. Yesterday, I found this video on the etsy site about the photographer and a little bit of her philosophy. I loved to hear Sharon’s take on her work. Check out the adorable baby giraffe slowly walking into the studio for her photo session. Very precious.

I am loving this Spring weather. With Spring comes the beautiful flowers. And with the beautiful flowers comes the not always welcome yellow pollen. Here in Norfolk, yellow is everywhere. You can see the pollen on anything that stays outside for a couple of hours. My poor husband Alex won’t stop sneezing. Thankful, my kids and I are allergy free, so we have been playing outside a lot. Should we wish for some rain to clean up a little or just enjoy yellow all around us? I think I go with the yellow.

As I was jogging this morning I spotted the prefect, most beautiful white tree. All of the sudden I forgot about my tired legs and everything that I had to do today. Those longs branches and the beautiful white flowers were so calming. The tree was so full, so thick. It was just gorgeous. And that made me think about white. Most people tend to avoid white when decorating a child’s room or a baby’s nursery. Some feel it may look too boring, too anemic. But when it is done correct, it can look simply divine.
