V is for Vacation
Happy Friday! Fridays are awesome, but this one is even better than usual because it's the start of two weeks vacation for me. I'll be taking a break from the blog until it's over. I'm looking forward to some time in Paris (sans bébé) and some time on the beach (with our whole family). See you when we get back.
Little man got into our first choice for preschool. We looked at a lot of schools, and this was by far our favorite. I love everything about it: the philosophy, the high-quality teachers, the small classes, the curriculum, and the physical space. Thoughtful design can create a positive environment for learning, and it's evident in his soon-to-be classroom. I can't wait to start on this exciting education adventure with our kiddo.
Art on the Inside
If you need extra storage in your nursery, an armoire can come in handy. I love the idea of dressing up the inside with beautiful wallpaper or stenciled paint. Leave the doors open and make a statement.
Polka Dots and Plaid
Happy Monday! This room makes a big impact by mixing patterns and bold colors. Would you be brave enough to do something like this?

5) DIY bunny ears:
Family Home: Malibu Loft Living
It's not surprising that today's family home is so beautifully done. The owners are a cinematographer/set designer couple who took an old barn and turned it into something fabulous. I love homes that feel collected over time, and this one certainly does. I also love adorable babies, and theirs is pretty darn cute.
Wondering what to do with that blank wall in your kiddo's room? I like this mix of prints. It's not too predictable or tied to a specific theme.
This is a nice color palette for a gender neutral nursery. I love the leather accents.
I'm at home with little man. Poor guy can't keep anything down. Upside is I'm getting lots of snuggles.
Kelly Wearstler. What can I say? I'm a fan. I love it all: her sense of style, her bold decor choices, her adorable boys Oliver and Elliot. Hope you enjoy these pics.
