nursery by design

It’s amazing the emails and texts you get when you start posting design photos about nurseries. Let me just clarify for all those wondering, no, I am not pregnant, I just love design and this nursery was the design I created for one of my awesome clients.
A few variables I worked around in order to design this nursery:
  • The house was custom built as a gift for them and they had already decided on a lavender color for the room prior to consulting with me, but we made it work.
  • I never saw her house in person. We did the entire design through pictures, video, architect plans, and pinterest!
  • I always try to plan ahead, since she had a daughter, I designed the nursery in a way that the “staples” – the major furniture pieces – could last longer than the toddler years.
  • Like every design client I work with, we had a specific budget and a desired timeline. I always offer a variety of furniture options ranging from inexpensive to moderately expensive and work with the client to see what they want most and which pieces are important for them to spend extra money on.

I loved the green chair because I love this bright green color with the lavender hues. I tried to keep everything else pretty neutral with white, grey, and metallic hues and accent pieces. Overall, I love the way this room turned out and I am excited to show you more designs from more of my clients’ homes.

Design Tips:

#1 Create a Nursery that both YOU and the BABY will thrive in

Too often I see nurseries (and while we are on the topic – baby bags and baby accessories that the parents have to carry) geared towards the baby only. I am of the belief that both the parents and the baby should love being in the room. So if you hate the color red, I don’t think you should put it in your son’s nursery.

#2 Plan for the Future

Babies have a way of growing up, and soon your little munchkin will be a pre-teen. I know, pause for a moment of silence. But knowing that kids always get bigger and grow up, try planning for it in your purchases. There is no need to buy furniture as often as you buy clothes. Save your money and invest in pieces of furniture that you can see in their room for quite some time.

#3 Keep it Simple

Only buy what you need, everything else will just collect dust and take up much needed space. Buying in bulk on diapers and clothes usually saves you money, but it can take up a lot of valuable space too, so be sure to have a plan on where you will store things. Toys, I know, it might seem blasphemous to even go there, but I have to… Most of our kids have too many toys. There, I said it, but before you send me hate mail, please hear me out. Instead of having a lot of toys, teach your kids to be content with a few things. In reality, most little ones just want to be around you and they will find something to play with wherever you are. The less toys they have, the more creative and imaginative they will be and the less things you need to clean up or trip on when you are in their room. I won’t harp on this, but less is more in this case.

#4 Keep it Clean

Unless you are of the rare breed of individuals who loves to live in a disgusting mess, do your best to keep the nursery clean. If you have to pull off awesome ninja moves to get to your baby’s crib, I think it is safe to say that the nursery needs to be cleaned and you may need a plan for how to keep it clean. If every time you sit down to read a book to your little one you find yourself focusing more on the load of laundry that you can see that the cute child sitting in your lap, it would probably be a great idea for you to spend a little time coming up with a new way to keep the nursery clean. The easiest way to do this is to follow the above steps. If this is not something you are good at, recruit a friend to help!

Some people think I am controversial, others love my honesty. But really, I just like talking about sex – the good stuff, the way it is supposed to happen – in marriage.

For the majority of my life, I was the center of bets and jokes simply because I was a virgin. Now I’m having the best sex ever with my husband, exactly as it should be.

I grew up reading relationship books and listening to abstinence speakers, over and over again it was drilled into my head, “don’t have sex; sex is bad.” I don’t know how it was possible to fall asleep reading a book about sex, but I did. Why? Because no one was really talking about it. So I began researching and I began writing. After all, I hadn’t waited so long for nothing.

Some people know that the Bible says to save sex for marriage, but many don’t realize that it says much more than that. I was shocked to learn that the Bible talks about good, godly, arousing sex (between a husband and his wife).

I have been speaking to audiences for over thirteen years and love every minute of it. Since my book NO SEX IN THE CITY was released, I have appeared on TV and Radio, been the featured personality in magazines, newspapers, and keynote speaker for various youth and singles conferences.

In a nutshell, I love teaching the truth about godly sex, lies about virgins, purity, and my two cents on dating and relationships.

Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.
