I’ve been busy designing a playroom for Marie + Henry, and wanted to share a bit of the inspiration behind it. We recently renovated our basement to accommodate two mobile toddler twins who need more room for their activities, toys, and imaginations. I used a lot of white to brighten up the space, and wanted the furniture + accents to be cheerful and colorful. Chalkboard (and white board) elements are throughout the space, and we continue to add fun pieces, like the vintage find in this clip. All of the elements are slowly coming together, and I’ll be revealing the finished design soon!
quirky lighting… black + white drum pendant by stray dog designs
storage wall unit…cameron creativity storage system by pottery barn kids
playful flooring… checkerboard FLOR tiles
activity table… woody chalkboard table + chairs by offi
Marie + Henry’s nursery is featured today on Hellobee, which happens to be a favorite site of mine for parenting and little ones inspiration. If you are linking over from there…welcome! I would love to get to know you and your littles…you can also find me HERE.

I am loving the newest designs from Newport Cottages, which are clean lined and highly customizable! The brand is a long time favorite of mine, for many reasons…but mostly because it is all hand made to order in California. The craftsmanship is truly impeccable. You can choose from their many paint colors or provide them with a Benjamin Moore favorite! Orange is such a fun color, don’t you think?!
This weekend was filled with “nesting” activities, chores, and shopping…at Clover Market! First, I must confess…I had my camera, but ended up chatting too much. So, this shot is from our last time at the market, ha…this worn street lamp caught my eye. I would like to take a quick moment to mention some friends who have booths there…Spotted Horse Textiles has just joined the ranks, and the selection of authentic burlap wares and antiques are to die for. I ran into Jahje of Baby Jives and she just had a beautiful baby girl so no booth currently, but do check out her handcrafted baby mobiles, they are so charming. Many of you know of Chez Sucre Chez, and Kimberly is also now selling there…I am gaga over her unique embroidered designs…you will be seeing her work in our nursery! Clover Market is brimming with local talent and always enjoyable…it’s worth a visit Philly friends!
My french infused baby shower was a success, and a beautiful, memorable day. I got to share it with such lovely ladies…I owe them a huge MERCI for helping to make it so special. It turned out to be a rainy, cozy day…the perfect conditions for a tea party, right?! We dined on Ladurée macarons and tea to the sounds of Piaf, Bruni, and Gainsbourg. I was showered with such thoughtful gifts for les bébés…vintage books, french clothing, and some good old fashioned staples. There are so many people I want to thank for making my day so amazing…but mostly our friends Angie & Tim, and my sweet hubby, whose help was priceless. I’m a very lucky woman! Stay tuned…I’ll be sharing our fun photobooth shots next!

This is a great demonstration of how to execute a neutral nursery, via Serena & Lily! I agree with these elements, and combined, they can enable a neutral scheme to stand out. In my opinion, this scheme has great longevity and when done well, can be such a beautiful and elegant space for baby and parents!
