American West + Adventure Theme Nursery Inspo

I started looking for inspiration for our nursery at the end of 2018, as soon as we had cleared the first trimester and knew the sex of the baby. (Thanks, required genetic screening!) We quickly settled on an American West + Adventure nursery theme. An upscale version, of course.

Baby G.’s Nursery Reveal

One thing I knew for sure: I didn’t want to design a nursery that was too cute or too juvenile (if you know my sense of style, you’ll understand why). Once I really started looking, I was stoked to find so many cute neutral-to-masculine options that fit my global / modern / vintage vibe.

Thankfully, I was able to re-use a number of things we already had laying around the house. The dresser turned changing table has been in my family for YEARS. A fresh coat of paint and new hardware brought in the vintage vibe I’ve been loving lately. The mirror and and large scale Be Brave print were also holdovers from a previous life. Sometimes it pays to be a hoarder… I knew I’d use them someday!

I am over the moon with how this nursery turned out. If hard-pressed, I’d have to say my favorite elements are: (1) the tree stump side table, (2) the tassel light fixture, and (3) the bear rug.

Best summarized as: wedding, adventures, and outfits. (Always outfits.) I’m 100% looking forward to having a little more breathing room in 2017 and am closing out the year with a full heart and gratitude. 2016 was a rough one in too many ways, but there was so much good that happened too. For that, I am thankful.

Hi there. It’s been awhile. In solving a tech problem for a friend today, I decided to hop on over here and take look under the hood. In my drafts folder, I found this partial post with a photo recap of 2014. Looking at these photos almost took my breath away because it seems like […]

Casual Kicks

13 April 2015

This post is promoted by DSW. Finally, a trend I can really get behind. I think just about every post I’ve written in the last year has highlighted the fact that I’m obsessed with looks that are casual, comfortable and most importantly, easy. I don’t like anything contrived. And I definitely don’t like feeling like […]
