I know, I know. I’ve been away far too long. We were away for our last “baby moon” on a trip to the Big Island (more on that to come).
Since we’ve been home my life has been consumed by escrow and closing documents and moving rigmarole. Yup, you heard it right, we’re moving at the end of the month. Our new home will be perfect for our growing family and has a big front and back yard for Griffin and Kidney Bean to play on a nice quiet street. Very excited, I beam!
Best of all, a new home means there’s lots and lots of interior design to do, and maybe even a little remodel here and there (new kitchen!!!). Yippee!
I’m kicking off the interior design extravaganza with some inspiration for my daughter’s nursery. This is my first attempt at Kidney Bean’s mood board and I have just under three months to put it all together. I’m still playing with fabrics and wood and paint colors, but this is the direction I think I want to go.
Our current house is very contemporary/modern. Griffin’s nursery sort of kept with the contemporary theme of the house and was inspired by the cool abstract installation my husband created.
Our new home is a 1920′s English Revival style so I have more freedom to bring in classic and feminine pieces and they won’t look out of place. I’m loosely bringing in a bird theme (I just love the swan side table and the chandelier reminiscent of a bird’s nest). This afternoon I took a trip to F&S Fabrics to clip some fabric swatches as I plan to sew the bedding and maybe the drapes myself. The rug is a find from zincdoor and I’m going to ask my artistic cousin to paint some birch trees similar to the decal on the walls. We have lovely birch trees in our new front yard so they’ll be something familiar from the outside.
What do you think? Girly enough for you?
