Just looking....

I don't want y'all to get the wrong idea from this post. I'm about to get a little gross here, so bear with me.

Someone once described their period to me as the "bloody tears of a disappointed uterus" (I know, I'm sorry, I warned you). Mine came a little late this month, but let me tell you, when it came, the only tears coming from my uterus were tears of joy, because girls, it knows I've got no business getting pregnant right now.

This is not to say that I am done having children, and I like the idea of having three children, perhaps because that's all I really know having come from a family with 2 other siblings. That said, this hypothetical third child (aka, the girl, or the boy who we will dress like a girl) will not be in the works for at least another year or two. We need to recuperate from the chaos that is life and Hudson in particular, and, more importantly, have lots of excess dough lying around for me to blow on an adorable nursery and, if it's a girl, and insane amount of clothing.

In the meantime, I've got a whole mess of knocked-up friends right now, so I can browse under the guise of helpful friend and we can ooh and ahh together at some fun nurseries I've happened upon in the past couple of weeks.

First up is this charming little gender neutral room I found over at Urban Grace Interiors. It almost makes me think I can wait to find out what I'm having next time....ALMOST. I'm obsessed with the incredible vintage chest of drawers being used as a changing table and the Jonathan Adler Giraffe Sconces, which just might be my favorite things in the whole world.

The color palette, which was derived from the gorgeous bird wallpaper that they used on the ceiling (I love that idea) is so warm and unexpected for a nursery.

Check out more pics of this beautiful space here.

One of my absolute fave bloggers of late, Melisa of The Lil Bee recently posted pics of her daughter Devon's nursery. It's both super soft and fem, but also minimalist and cool, thanks to some touches like the insanely cute baby version of Starck's Lucite Louis Ghost Chair, known as the "Lou Lou" which comes in a slew of adorbs pastels, like the yellow version seen below. I'm also dying for the yellow pom-pom detailing on the curtains.

See more pics of the nursery and adorable Devon here.

Max is all up in his ABC's these days ("What letter starts with lizard?" is how he phrases it), and I would love to replicate something like the brilliant and eclectic wall of letters in this nursery featured on Project

How great is that giant button for the "O"???

Unfortunately, I lost the source for this next pic, but I have always been quite certain that I will have a Jenny Lind crib if I ever have a daughter, and after seeing this nursery, I'm even more certain that it will be yellow. I also love how they used fabric in the little sewing circles on the wall.

Super cute!

My very talented friend Lindsey of Anyon Design is expecting her first little guy in late Spring and I can't wait to share his gorgeous nursery with everyone! Pics and Baby B will be here soon so stay tuned!

  1. My uterus shrieked when it heard the word "baby".... not happening in this bod for VERY long time as well :)
    Wanted to add a few things that I am adding to my girls' nurseries/toddler rooms. I love the idea of wall paper but don't have the time or energy to do that right now.. So I have purchased some wall decals. Madeline will have a large cherry blossom decal placed in her room shortly and Juliette will be have a large monogrammed letter in her room.. Pottery barn has some really cute ones if people are interested.

  2. Devon is honored to be featured here...and I share your love of Erika's nursery!

  3. I too love the bird wallpaper! And on the ceiling? Love it! I first saw it on when she put it in her baby girls nursery.
