Nursery Design

Only 15 more days until we move!! 
But who's counting right?  

Not only is the move super exciting, but it means we are that much closer to baby's arrival!
Of course, the designer in me can't help but constantly daydream about our new digs and how we are going to style them.  
I think the hardest part is knowing that we are going to be on a budget.  It's easy to get carried away and want the best of the best but that's just not realistic for us right now.  I'm leaving my job earlier than most maternity leaves begin.  I'm thrilled to have some time to nest and relax while finishing out my third trimester but I can't remember the last time I didn't receive a consistent paycheck. Yikes!  Craigslist and Ikea are going to be our go-to shops.  

With all that being said, here is my latest Nursery concept I'm contemplating.  
The baby's room has limited wall space (because there is a huge built-in window seat made from two twin-sized beds!).  I would love a large glider and a full sized dresser but it just won't work.  

I'm sure I'll have a different vision come next week....

Eye Candy

Here's a long overdue dose of Eye Candy seen from the lens of my iphone....

Gorgeous wallpaper at the sample desk in Thomas Lavin

Elizabeth Eakins rug samples. LOVE this store.

John Robshaw display at Cisco Home. I could live here.

Formations showroom. Always so peaceful and tranquil in here.

Fun pop of color on the streets of SF

Quick stop in Monterey, CA just in time to catch the sunset.

Aftermath of a great dinner party hosted by our best friends.
 One of the best scones I've ever had. Enjoyed at my first Bed and Breakfast experience!

The adorable Bed and Breakfast we stayed at for a friend's wedding.

Bouquets I helped create for the wedding.  There's a first time for everything!

Something I'm trying to master while being pregnant in this heat!
