Entry room rug

So there's this blog that I love, Copy Cat Chic. I tend to have expensive taste but am a sucker for a good deal, so this is the perfect blog for me. Today she featured a bunch of darling rugs, and I've found the one I want for my entry way! Found here

My nursery

I realized I never posted completed pictures of the nursery. Here they are!

Artwork display

So, it's been an eternity since I posted here. I went and had a baby, and she pretty much occupies my time. And I love it. She's the best. Anyway, I ran across this room on a blog I love and I thought this was a brilliant way to display children's artwork. Plus, I'm 100 percent in love with the little bed alcove.

Project: Nursery

I have 12 weeks to pull together a spectacular nursery. Sounds like a lot of time, but when you consider my two jobs and ever increasing tiredness, it makes me feel stressed like it's never going to come together. I've been on the fence a little (okay, a lot) on how I want baby girl's nursery to look. I've explored every option from gender neutral to all-out-girl. Then my mom's neighbor just re-did her girls room with the most spectacular pink wallpaper and offered me her extras ... and the nursery "theme" was settled on.

The idea is this: the wall paper on one wall with the rest of the walls in a light/blush pink. The ceiling will stay the same grey color, so I want to make it sort of a grey and pink themed, girly but classy/elegant. Like this:

One of the things I knew I wanted was a girly chandelier. I found the perfect one, and last night Jason and I (okay fine, Jason) installed it:

And yesterday I made my best find, an upholstered rocker/glider better than the one I'd been jonesing for from Pottery Barn Kids. At a price that I could not pass up (especially with the addition of the 20 percent off coupon I had!) Thank you DownEast Home!!
