Claire's Nursery Reveal

Hi! I am finally getting around to posting pictures of baby Claire's nursery! I am so excited to share these- I had a very clear vision for this room and it all came together just how I pictured it. I wanted it to be peaceful and serene but with some whimsical touches too. . Claire is a really relaxed, happy baby so her nursery fits her perfectly!
This room is really tiny (only 10'x10') so  I used lots of white along with the gray and lavender to keep things bright and airy. We started by repainting the green walls in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I was able to keep the existing curtains by just sewing a blackout lining in myself (this room faces the street and gets a ton of sunlight during the day so this was a necessity!). The chaise was originally in the living room, but I really prefer it in here and it's a super cozy place for nursing Claire and reading books with both girls. Everything else in the room just came together over time- probably my favorite piece in the whole room in her bird mobile that I found on Etsy. I am thrilled with the finished product and I just love spending time in this room!

Christmas House Tour 2013

Hi, welcome to my Christmas home tour!! I am so excited that I am finally getting this post up, even if it is a little late this year :) Our house is all decked out and ready for Claire's (2 months) first Christmas and Allie's (22 months) second Christmas! I have always loved decorating for the holidays, even more so now that I have two little ones; I want them to remember our home feeling extra special and magical at this time of year.
That being said, with the girls (and the fact that we're going back to Texas for Christmas), I wanted/needed to keep things simple this year. I used decorations that I already had and lots
 of fresh greenery that Allie and I collected from the park to dress things up. I actually love how our house feels this year- homey, warm, and festive!
I think the rest of this post is just going to be pictures! I apologize that some of these are not the best...I was wearing Claire in the Beco carrier while I took these!
