After two solid months of day (and many late) nights unpacking & putting away, organizing & pitching, I can honestly say our house is starting to feel like “home.” I tried not to overwhelm myself with too many DIY projects but it’s just so hard not to consult Pinterest for EVERYTHING when decorating a new space.
Here are some of my favorite (staged) photos of our kid’s rooms right before our Christmas party. This was the tidiest version you will ever see..we’re still working on a responsibility routine where the girls clean up dirty clothes and learn how to put things in their proper place…ugh! tough stuff.
I’m so crazy for Kreed’s little monochrome nursery. It’s perfect for him and just the right balance of new/used pieces.
His white crib was, big sister Karys’, when she was little..we found it at Burlington Coat Factory. We spruced up the plain gray walls with these adorable triangle decals from urban walls.
That handsome guy on the wall is Ziggy the zebra. He is designed by Fiona Walker England and came from the most perfect online boutique, EFL sales in NYC. If you love Kreed’s zebra, just wait until you see the girl’s rooms.
Here’s a look at the opposite side of the room. This changing table used to be brown when it was in Laelle’s nursery, years ago. The gray glider was a baby shower gift from all the Grandmothers & we love it!! I’m still in search of a “pouf” or sweet little ottoman.
Kreed has a little gallery wall full of all my favorite black and white goodies. He loves to watch this serenity mobile (by Tip Toe Meadow ) while he’s on his back. Most of the time that’s the only way to get his attention and stop his crazy violent scissor kicks while I do my best to fasten his clothes. #boys He’s SO active now that he’s on the move.
The art prints were created by my sweet friend Alli, who is holding an Adoption Auction to fund their son’s adoption from Jamaica. You just might be able to bid on some of her other crazy beautiful creations here.

Now for the girlier side of our home..
Karys’ current favorite colors are violet and mint/aqua so we tried to round up as many of those touches as I could.
We had so much fun putting the polka dots on the walls with my brother and sister in law…what a fun Christmas present.

You can find my girls in their mermaid tails most lazy afternoons. I’ve had multiple conversations with them about NOT scooting down the hallway/stairs wearing their mermaid tails..Accident waiting to happen.

This peachy blush bedding is so squishy and perfect..it’s from Target.
Well I hope you enjoyed the room tours..there are still a few changes that I plan to make over time. Since we JUST moved into a brand new construction I hate to ask my hubby to change out standard light fixtures and such…those things will happen in time. Right now, I want to enjoy this space and start the memory making, full force!
Stay tuned for a full home tour soon…
