1. Brooks’s Baby Nursery


    As you may have seen on my instagram, I am so excited to be partnering with Restoration Hardware Baby & Child to transform my little boy’s room from the sweetest nursery to a big boy toddler room. I realized that before I start to share the detailed process of working with their design team, I needed to actually share with you guys a closer look at his current room. I absolutely love this cozy space, as does Brooks. As I explained to the design team, it’s a place where we play quietly at the end of the day {the craziness after school takes place in our playroom}. And while we love this space so much, Brooks is ready to say goodbye to his crib and move onto a big boy bed.

    So a little about this room… this room is the perfect nursery design with a place for all of our needs. A cozy rocking chair for bedtime stories, a three drawer dresser with a changing table on top, a leaning bookshelf with the bottom two shelves dedicated to Brooks’s favorite books. {He is a lover of Spot and Dr. Seuss’s ‘Are you my Mother’}, and then the center of the room has his Thomas Train Table, which I must say this occupies hours of play. We really did minimal art in the room which I semi regret, so that will be a new initiative in the update. Also while I love the Benjamin Moore Blue Lace color, we are going to update to a grey color from RH.


    I created a little shop the nursery widget below for those of you looking to create a nursery that is similar. I just love the look of the white wood furniture popped against the blue!! So looking forward to sharing the re-design process with you!!

  2. Nursery Shelves

    In the last few months we have had a few exciting changes in the kiddos’ rooms… Brooks was rolling and moving so much he was ready to transfer from a mini alba crib {or similar} to a standard size crib, and since Reese was turning two {and realistically we didn’t want to purchase a second crib}, it was time for her to move to a big girl bed {ie. a twin bed with a little guard fence}. Since the new crib in Brooks’ room took up substantially more space than his last, we had todo a bit of re-arranging and move…

  3. Nashville Baby Nursery

    Welcome to Baby Brooks’ Nursery! We are so pleased with the finished look and you can tell by all the smiles in this post that we are loving playing in our new space! While the room started out as a teenage boy’s room with dark wallpapered walls, wooden built-in shelving, a dark rug, and gothic inspired lighting, we instantly updated the look with the sweetest Benjamin Moore paints, a light colored rug, new light fixtures, and endless baby accents in white and blue. For furniture we really worked with what we had in our nursery in New York city; the Alex Crib from…

    Baby Girl Nursery Decor Inspiration by Fashionable Hostess

    Today I am excited to share a peek inside my little angel’s nursery. Since Reese is the princess of the household, I wanted her room to reflect it. While baby’s rooms can quickly become filled with clutter and excessive amount of toys, I avoided that by placing a neatly organized {and incredibly girly} display shelf directly across from the entry to her room so guests would immediately swoon upon entering. Read on to learn what my favorite pieces were in assembling the look! To start I chose a Pottery Barn Kids three tiered bookshelf {buy the bookshelf here for $299 plus free shipping!} and…

  5. Miami Playroom Tour

    So many people ask how I keep my house clean while having two little kids. The answer… I made them a playroom so fun they never want to play anywhere else!! Welcome to the most popular room in our home {ok, maybe the kitchen is – but this is a close second!}. We love this space so much; I love the natural light that pours in from our backyard and the sweet displays on our open-shelving, the kids love everything inside of it. I first decided todo open shelving because I wanted my kids to be able to reach up and grab books…
