This summer, I had the privilege of designing an office for a dear friend and co-worker from when I used to teach sixth grade math! This girl was my lifeline during those first years of teaching. We shared a closet and would leave the doors to it open so we could sit at our desks and chat with each other. In a job that I struggled with every day, she made life look easy. When we both started having babies around the same time, it just brought us even closer, and she is one of the few people I still keep in touch with since leaving that school three years ago.
Today I get to share with you a reveal from one of my favorite types of rooms to design- playrooms! I just enjoy doing kid spaces so much. I get to tap into my inner 5-year old and think about what kinds of things I would love as a kid.
Finally!! The time has come for our sweet baby’s nursery reveal. Man, this room took some time. Kid spaces are one of my favorite spaces to design and as soon as Dave and I got pregnant, the excitement started for what this new nursery was going to look like. For the first 20 weeks when I swore I was having a boy, my ideas were obviously headed in a completely different direction than where they needed to be. It took me awhile to get my head around planning another girl nursery, and this pregnancy made me super indecisive. I finally got brave enough to start with a solid design plan in July and finished this room literally the day before Logan was born. While there are still one or two things I may add down the road, this room is definitely one of my favorite spaces ever, and other than Riley’s room, it’s my favorite space in the house.
I LOVE organization.
Pregnancy has possibly led me to an obsession-level love of organization.
There’s nothing that makes me happier than when my home is organized. As an interior decorator, I can go on and on about the emotional side of your home and what this place means to me and my family. But functionally speaking, I want this place to run like a factory, as cold and heartless as that sounds.
