August’s Nursery Design (Sources)

Now that Eleanor is in her new bedroom (which I’ll share soon!), I can finally concentrate on August’s nursery. There aren’t too many big changes to be made, so it will be a quick makeover. I just need to find time to sew curtains and a crib skirt out of the Joel Dewberry fabric I bought for the room.

This was the plan for Eleanor’s nursery:

And here is the new plan for August:

Consistency in design and reusing furniture in different ways seems to be a calling card for me, yes? Making it Yours, baby. Making it Yours.

We’re keeping the same crib, lighting, glider and ottoman, side table, bookcases (used as a changing table), and the paint color. I’m swapping out the curtains and crib skirt, as I mentioned, and bringing in some more orange pieces. Eleanor’s pink dresser is in her new room, so I have a more masculine wood dresser for the nursery now. Plus it’s named after my town, Oak Park! I’m switching the art to a print that I bought at the Renegade Craft Fair years ago by Three Sheets 2, and I also brought in two little orange chairs.

I’ve made a page with a full list of sources (and Eleanor’s is here). Now hopefully I can find a little time for some sewing… and let’s hope it goes well!

Design Stasis

I posted about the very pretty Louisa sofa yesterday, and it made me curious about how long we’ve had our sofa. I checked flickr for photos of our old apartment and I just realized how much of our living room has stayed the same over the years.

Living Room
now

We have had our couch since 2006. We also still have the same pink Robert Abbey lamps, and the same pillows (but moved around a little).

And hello, orange chair. You’ve been with us for five years now too.

My Living Room
now

Yes, the living room in this house has its differences from the living room in our old apartment, but I was surprised to see so many similarities. It’s really my Making it Yours concept put into practice.

And wow, has my taste really stayed that consistent? I’ve been feeling the urge to shake things up a little lately, but I also still like our living room a lot. Do you ever feel conflicted like that?

Louisa Sofa

It’s pretty close to perfect. If I were to choose a new sofa for my home, it would ideally have that flat back with loose seat cushions.
