Guest Post: Halle’s Navy and Pink Nursery

I’m on vacation this week, soaking up the sun, beach, and most importantly, my family. So, I’ve asked some talented friends to help out by providing posts this week. So excited to share them!

Navy and Pink must be the color of the season (did you see Katie’s fabulous navy and fucshia wedding?). My friend Lora also used that color scheme when creating her baby girl, Halle’s, nursery.

One of our friend’s moms, Stefanie, is a gifted designer. And she helped Lora design Halle’s perfect room. Check out these pics!

I adore the white decals on the wall that create her white dots. And the framed monogram is so precious. Jill has one just like this on her front door!

And instead of the traditional mobile over the crib, Lora and Stefanie gathered pink poms together, along with ribbon from Halle’s baby shower gifts. I love how fluffy they look! Halle gets to stare up at a bunch of pink clouds each night!

The navy and white chevron curtains make such a statement.

And there’s her precious son adoring his new baby sister framed on her dresser - I mean, doesn’t your heart just melt?

Bling for your Blender

Actually for your mixer – same thing right?  No secret here- in our house the mister is the cook/chef/maker of the food.  Aside from the occasional batch of no-bake cookies or tacos or easy-to-cook items I tend to stray away “cooking” much.  Oddly enough my mom is a fabulous cook – I guess I just haven’t learned the craft yet.  See, I clean – organize – decorate.  However, I am getting shall I dare say “better” but I am definitely not the one who put a KitchenAid mixer on my Christmas list this past year.

Yep, that was the mister.

SO, I obliged and got the mister his most wanted item on his list and bought him a KitchenAid Mixer – “Artisan”.  He does actually use it quite often – homemade protein bars on a weekly basis.

Not only did I struggle with color choice but I was quite anti-having-a-large-appliance-on-our-kitchen-counter.  I decided since this was the misters mixer I chose basic a masculine black although there are 20 different colors!

Next, I thought there had to be a way to make this large piece of appliance more appealing so I found these great decals.


And in over 30 different colors and for only $12.

I found these decals on The House of Smiths Designs.


Don’t get me wrong – probably not a necessity, but what a great Christmas stocking stuffer?!

The mister has his blender – I can make sure the blender has some really cool bling!
