Beauty doesn't have to be sacrificed in an environmentally safe nursery.
I love Pink. Its so pretty, sweet, & girly. Just a really soothing & soft color.
Too much Pink...or not the right pink, forget it.
I don't like" TOO MUCH "of anything.
I don't like overkill & I do not like a nursery to scream ...."BABY".
How dramatic is this? I Love it. This style is way easy to recreate. Very Regal. Very classy. Get some plywood, some batting or foam some great stiped material & if you can't afford it... get white canvas & Paint your stripes.* Little tip ~ use some fabric medium w/ your regular paint. look for some great nail heads or get creative & use some nails or screws that are a bit more chunky & paint them to have the color, stain,metal effect you want. & outline the piece.You can use whatever you want for overhead lighting, sconces or artwork/accessorie for the middle piece. keep it simple, clean & Vogue by a few unique objects. you do not need a whole lot to get big impact. Now let your imagination run wild & dream up diff. headboards & color schemes.
I'd be happy to help ; ) I love a challenge. Just ask.

Well, I know I must say stupid things quite often. I have 5 daughters. They are all 2 years apart. Except the last Princess, she is 10 years later. I do not get much sleep, I never stop working on Creating something for someone and since I have a large family & they keep me busy and I stay up way late than most humans.... & im just silly I guess. I say DUMB things!!
I heard myself say "NOW is not the time to Put your head in the salad bowl!"
OK... than when is?

I just came across these photo's. and have some ideas. Actually for me, & one for of my daughters. Just a few ideas & thought I would share the photos.
* From "BHG" ..... 3 old hollow doors painted black.hung up for a headboard. Bold, Vogue, stricking & fun. ideas are endless. I did something similar for a client along time ago using "3painted shutters" in the shabby chic days. but LOOK at the chandelier, columns, artwork, fabric treatment & pillows... just look at it all. What do you see?
BHG. no Headboard, or need new look? cheap bookcase painted or use something diff. Columns always make me smile... bit of color.it all works. How about a display for your work, studio. home office? any ideas??
I believe I found these curtains from Ditton Hill in the UK awhile back. sorry if I am wrong???
I just got an idea from this. How about a closet & doing this? Fun little cocoon like. cozy. no need for closet if you spave for dressers & other BIG fun creative pieces to store your things. could be fun! canopy... ohhh the ideas...

A modern twist
My favorite dress when I was in high School and its still my
favorite style to wear now as a mommy of 5 girls. Some things never change.
The Man in his office.....
PURE elegance, sophistication, class & sexyness ....
I believe a man gets sexier as he ages. Sure
money & power make it even more appealing, but Money isn't everything!
I Love a man in a suit though.
