Nursery Art

I’m not a big fan of buying art for a specific space.  I prefer to pick up pieces that I like while traveling or exploring and finding somewhere to put them in the house.  I hate looking for pieces simply to fill a space. That being said…I’m now in that exact predicament.  The nursery is […]

Planning a Bar Closet

Our former furnace lived in a closet in the family room.  When we installed the new HVAC system, we moved the system to the garage and now there is an empty closet in the family room.  I’ve removed the door and have decided to make this closet into a dry bar.  We had the closet […]

Nursery Lighting

I’ve received several deliveries this week including the gorgeous wallpaper and fabric for the chair and headboard.  Can’t wait to use them!  But now I need to make some lighting decisions. As you recall, the wallpaper is a modern take on a fairly traditional pattern: This wallpaper will cover 3 of the walls (the other […]

Nursery Progress: To Glide or Not to Glide

We’re making good progress on the nursery design and I’m now in the process of buying the furniture room.  I know there are many differing opinions on whether a nursery needs a glider but I’ve decided that it makes sense to get one.  The main reason that I wanted to get a glider (other than […]
