Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.
Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.
A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.

Today I’m honored to be featured in Rue Magazine’s 3rd anniversary issue! When they contacted me to be part of their top seven designers to watch in 2014 I was elated, giddy and completely humbled. This issue is not to be missed – it’s filled with market pages that will have you pulling out your wallet (be warned!) and gorgeous homes that will make you want to redecorate. I’ve followed the journeys of each of the seven designers they named and I’m honored to be alongside them – each with a different aesthetic, so there is something for everyone. Pop over to tour my entire clients home and to page through the other talented designers I sit beside.

Today I’m thrilled to share our apartment on Style Me Pretty Living and an interview! It hasn’t been featured since last fall and we’ve updated a few things. We added a new Serena & Lily headboard, a pair of vintage leather chairs in the bay window, and a piece of artwork by Jennifer Ament above our sofa. On this shoot I had the pleasure of working with the ever so talented Bess Friday. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to work with her and this seemed like the perfect occasion. Working with her for a day was a dream – her eye for photographs is amazing.
Hop on over to read the interview and when you’re done check out the brand new Style Me Pretty Living – it just launched in mid-March and its chalked full of inspiring interiors. A huge thanks to the SMP ladies for featuring me today!
