Looking Back

It’s been three years since Michael Luke and I worked on designing and creating Noah’s nursery.  nursery

And three years since we have really done much to the room aside from removing the crib and adding a bed a few pieces of artwork here and there.  That was our original goal and just the other day Michael Luke and I were talking about how that has made things (and the budget) easy over the past three years.  We’ve even added a child to the mix and still haven’t had to adjust much.

How did we do this?  We planned for a room from the beginning that would grow with our children.  I chose neutral walls and decorated with bold colors.  We used pink minimally. Mainly because it isn’t one of my favorite colors.  Places where girly colors are used can easily be switched out if ever needed.  In essence, the room for the most part is a gender neutral room with some girly accents thrown on top.  All of this made for a budget friendly room transformation.

I love inspiring other people to use budget friendly design. So, when Hometalk asked me to curate a “gender neutral baby room” board I was delighted.

So head on over and check out all the wonderful projects pinned.  In fact, check out all of Hometalk. It’s a really neat site where you can ask design questions or clip projects for reference.   Oh, and if you have thought about blogging or have some home diy projects that you are proud of but don’t have the time to devote to a blog then go post your stuff on Hometalk.  They have a simple easy to share template where you upload project pictures and share a little bit about each one.  I’ll see you over there.
