a little while back I got help from my friend
Jaymee Srp of the Design Hive and owner of the shop Retro Menagerie
thankfully I had her to help me get going on E's nursery walls
because I had ideas, but no real place to start
we made a plan, got what we needed, and executed all in one afternoon
just the way I like when getting things done
and yesterday I ordered the perfect mobile - I can't wait to get it
things are really starting to come together, and I couldn't be happier

  1. What a beautiful nursery! I love the colours you have used.

    1. thanks Lyndall - we are like you in only having a one bedroom, so E's nursery is one of the two living room spaces we have, so when planning colors I was trying to make sure they would still flow with the rest of the house!

  2. The nursery looks wonderful, she is a lucky little girl! Hmmm E Names. . . I can think of my favorite!

    1. thanks Robyn - yes I'm sure you do have an E name in mind :)
