Nursery Inspiration (& a Little Sneak Peak)

This whole being pregnant thing has felt incredibly surreal – even though we are under two months away from meeting this little bundle of joy. In fact, it still doesn’t feel real! Decorating the nursery has for sure started to make this sink in a little bit, and has definitely been fun!

Our whole house has taken on a neutral palette, sticking with blues, grays, neutral tones, whites and lots of texture. I knew I wanted the same for baby’s nursery, especially since we don’t know the gender and won’t until he or she arrives (my money is on he!).

Styled Snapshots’ nursery was one of the first I pinned that really captured the whole vibe we wanted to run with. I can’t wait to share the finished room in the next few weeks! I just love the combo of colors and textures – it feels sophisticated enough to go with the rest of our house but not to sweet.

inspiration is everywhere, right? yup! enter: bewitched. yes, the show that our mothers watched as girls and we watched on nick at night.

i love this show – it makes me smile, wish i was this age in a completely different era, and swoon over the mid century inspiration in every episode (i try to ignore how chauvinistic darren is):

here are my picks to achieving the bewitched look in your own home:

living room essentials

in thinking about redoing my living space i seem to keep gravitating towards two styles – one that is very bachelorette last single girl hurrah, and one that is very streamlined and compromised for both a guy and a woman living in the same space. figuring out how to balance a very feminine style with one that appeals to a man living in the same house as you can be challenging, especially when it comes to needing to invest in your key pieces.

i mean, i really want a white lacquer console but it just won’t go with the couch that we will compromise on.

here, i’ve picked my favorite items for a compromised living room – a slightly feminine touches with bold geometric shapes. how do you compromise for both yourself and the man in your life when it comes to interior design?
