“Since we let the gender of our baby be a surprise, I went with a gender-neutral color scheme and had more fun than I ever could have imagined with it! I have been in love with the birch trees wallpaper from SummerHouse for years now, so when I found out we were having this baby, I knew that this wallpaper would be my starting point! From there, I picked out a rug and changing table. I particularly love the rug because it brings in just enough color without any one color being too overwhelming! I wanted to keep the color scheme very simple so this rug added just the right touch!”
“I’ve been in love with Lee Industries’ swivel glider chairs for years! I work at SummerHouse, and we almost always have one on the showroom floor for me to sit in! I’ve spent many hours in that cozy chair and grow to love it more with each new day!”
“I have followed a custom neon company, Endeavour Neon, on Instagram for a while now, so I went out on a limb (with my husband’s permission) and had a neon sign made for the baby’s room! It says “coisrig” which is Gaelic for “set apart.” This goes right along with Jeremiah 1:5, our verse for the baby, and since we both have Irish heritage, incorporating something Gaelic just seemed right! The guy at Endeavour was able to create the sign based off of my own handwriting, which I thought was just super neat! This sign will be something we can have for a really long time, and it has a great story behind it.”
“My friend David Dill of d+p Design Build was able to take this bookshelf idea I’d found and make it a reality. He had to work around my picky-ness and the stud situation in the wall where I wanted the bookshelf, but he rose to the challenge and the shelves ended up just how I’d imagined! We were gifted so many sweet books before our little one arrived, so I knew I had to have a place where I could display them all that wouldn’t take up too much space (since our nursery is on the smaller side!) David also made the house shelves for me, and he did a great job!”
“A lot of love went into creating this space for our baby boy and I just love how it turned out! I’m thankful for my husband who can install light fixtures and put together cribs like it’s nobody’s business, and for my mother and grandmother for teaching me how to sew so I could make the baby some drapery! (But don’t look too closely… It’s definitely flawed and would never pass a professional seamstress’s test!) I also made the mobile hanging over the crib, the fuzzy footstool, the pillow in the chair, and white lacquered the skull mount, which were great ways to get to indulge my crafty side while pregnant!”
“I am so in love with my baby Wilson and love spending time with him in his cozy little baby room!
