This week neutral hue had a fun rustic vs modern holiday tabletop styling event at West Elm Atlanta and I wanted to share some of my favorite [rustic ] picks for your holiday table. There were so many things to choose from, and I especially love that we have a MARKET concept in our West Elm here. Rustic woods, camp-inspired enamel wear and a juxtaposition of more polished pieces bring this tablescape to life.

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

The secret is out of the bag and I’m so thrilled to share that we’re adding a new addition to our family this December, a baby girl! While this means I get to decorate another sweet little nursery soon, it also means my little guy Wyatt gets to move into a “big boy” room of his very own. I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and that is the theme we’re going with.

Camp in

Wyatt has a vintage paperback in his nursery now, “The American Red Cross : Life Saving & Water Safety,” that has set the stage of inspiration for his new room. A drab olive green with a simple red cross, it’s the perfect blend of simplicity and rugged nature. I thought I’d share my working styleboard for Wyatt’s “camping” room, a special place he will have to play hard and create his own adventures.

I’d love to know what other fabulous finds you have discovered that might be a perfect fit for the room!

Camping in styleboard finds :

Bunk Bed / Metal Depot Pendant / Wool Army Blanket  / Compass Wall Clock / Wooden Stool / First Aid Kit / National Park Print / Canvas Tent / Metal Playroom Chair

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.

I just launched my brand new line, heirloomed. and went in search of other “heirloom” quality items that make fabulous finds for the holidays for those who appreciate the finer things in life that are lasting. These are a few of my favorites!

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!
