Before becoming a professional photographer / stay at home mommy, I was a commercial interior designer for 4 years. Two things I miss: 1) Helping clients visualize their future space with floor plans & conceptual boards and 2) seeing their reaction when they first physically see their space.
Well, I guess my clients now are my family. I would show my husband the stuff I’m buying. I show him the progress on the DIY projects I’m working on. Then they walk in the room once I’m all done, and I watch them amazed at the transformation. 🙂
As you will see below, I FINALLY got Mariah’s nursery done! I can’t believe just last year it was Lennon’s nursery (click HERE to view how this room looked before)! The biggest thing for me is to not make it too ‘babyish.’ I want her to grow into the room and love it in 5+ years. (even though I’m sure we’ll add some other decor here and there) I went with white walls and stenciled 1 wall in grey (click HERE to view and get more info on the stenciled wall & heart wall piece). The fabulous thing about it is that most of the stuff in the nursery is DIY. Gotta love saving some money!
Check out the pics below! Enjoy!
Now onto the next projects on my list…. I need to put a few more things up in 2 of the bedrooms and will blog that soon. I also was contacted by Cutting Edge Stencils & received a new stencil to review since I had used their stencil a couple years ago for my living room wall (click HERE on their blog post…we have changed things a bit since then). I’m thinking the basement needs a facelift, and the new stencil I received will look great in there! 🙂 Watch for future blog posts on updates!
