gilded girls nurseryWe are anxiously awaiting our baby girl’s arrival, and less than half way to go we are busy searching for the perfect name and nursery to welcome her into the world!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve put my girlie-girl hat on. Converting our “boys-boy” nursery into a special nook for a baby girl takes a total mindset shift. But, a challenge I’m up for any day. I love the classics, not overly frilly, but there is something so feminine about a truly vintage and glamorous setting. I decided the theme for our baby girls nursery will be gilded. With washes of worn white, touches of gold, a bit of whimsy and touches of blush.

And so, I hope you enjoy the style board of pieces I’ve collected for inspiration. Would love your input on favorite finds that might be a perfect fit in a golden and gilded newborn nursery!

Gilded styleboard finds :

Malibu Chandelier / ABC gilt wood letters / Vine carved oval mirror / Jellycat goat / Metallic gold brush pillow / Personalized crown rocking chair / Millbrook Iron Crib / Wild Things knit crown / Metallic suede & hemp rug

Spring Table

Spring has nearly sprung and these are some of my must-haves for setting the perfect Spring table this year. I’d love to know what you need for Spring … what would you add to the table?

wooden egg from west elm / heirloomed linen napkins from icemilk aprons / egg crate from anthropologie / organic sea salt from st. helena olive oil co. / bubble drinking glass from canvas / my favorite riondo prosecco / egg cup from match pewter / egg platter from martha stewart for macy’s / big picture farm goal milk chai caramels from eat boutique / honey dipper from brook farm general store / wax resist easter egg party invitation from minted / wheatgrass seeds from terrain / french urn pedestal dining table from restoration hardware.

Yesterday was the first official day of summer, though I’ve been celebrating for quite some time already. I think these throw-backs will help keep you in the summer spirit!

Throw-Back’s: Kinfolk: A Guide for Small Gatherings { a quarterly magazine that will inspire a few memories of your own} J.Crew necklace  { vintage-inspired settings would be great for anything from t-shirt to LBD } / Restoration Hardware Deconstructed Highback Wing Chair { the wing has such a regal touch, coupled with the undone finish makes it livable } / Stainless Steel Bendy Straws { a redo of one of our favorite kid classics }

I always notice {and pin} vintage-inspired items that I see come out. Of course if you know me by now, you know I love when people find throw-back elements they love and bring them back in a current way that works for today. It’s not dated, not stale or old – it’s something new and fresh but with a fabulously old-school feel.

So today I bring you some of my favorite recent throw-back finds. This just may become a more regular series on the heirloomed blog … what do you think? Would you like to see it?

Throw-Back’s : Karlsson’s limited-edition Batch 2008 potato vodka {click over, a good read!} /Restoration Hardware baby & child 19th C. Quatrefoil Iron Bed {because I must include my favorite RH} / Best Made Company Cloth Extension Cord {adore the design} / iRetrophone Steampunk phone {yes that’s an iPhone in there!}

when we first got married, there were certainly some things we each had to part with to accommodate living together in a civil manner. i admittedly had more of a girly, shabby chic vibe going in my single days and had many pieces remaining that just didn’t work. and the mister had a few things left over from his college days, most of which celebrated sports in some form or fashion.

and so we compromised on several things and did a great job in creating a home that truly reflects the personal style of us both together. but still, for some time now we had been sitting upon a living room filled with big, blue couches. we finally made a switch after simply fawning over the restoration hardware collection for some time now {that design book got me, right?} and i am just loving our neutral, linen & leather living room.

it’s cozy and liveable, with some of our favorite vintage finds – a big storage basket as our coffee table and a little old safe as an end table – both of which we found while popping into different antique stores over the years. it is so nice to have a room in which we spend most of our time that is a perfect reflection of living.

at this point, i’m 11 short weeks away from welcoming our new baby boy into the world and you can say the nesting has certainly set in.

we were fortunate to have a slow weekend and spent some time in the nursery, getting a few things hung and prepared. as you know by now, i’m a lover of all things neutral and have a certain affinity for things with a storied past.  i’ve been working from this styleboard for some time now to transform his tiny room into something a little throwback, but something that was filled with all things a little boy would love. not just one theme, but a haven of little boy activities – from football to baseball, hunting & fishing, animals to music, wood & iron and all things in between. if he is anything like his mommy & daddy, he will certainly try his hand at a variety of activities and i am hopeful that this will be the perfect place to start him off!

i am simply swooning over the collection from rh baby & child {and don’t even get me started on the great big design book that Restoration Hardware so graciously filled my mailbox with …}. we chose to go with a few pieces from the tate collection, because really who can resist “dove grey?” but my favorite piece of all is the oh-so-vintage crib that we found, you would swear i was made from the pieces of my own iron bed i had growing up! i am also absolutely in love with the matteo bedding at Layla Grace { which i do believe happens to be 20% off currently } – the loomstate vintage linen bedding simply cannot be beat.

more to come as more is done …. but be sure to send any finds or ideas my way!
