Modern Bohemian Nursery Sneak Peek and A Few Tips To Designing The Perfect Space.

It’s nursery time BABY! lol

I have had so many questions about the theme of our nursery. As of a few weeks ago, I wasn’t quite sure, but I soon decided on a Modern Bohemian Themed nursery.  Yea, I knew I wanted this style nursery when I found out we were expecting our third child. Boy or Girl, this interior style fits across the board!

Tip 1. Choose a designated space. We chose to use our guest room and decided once the baby is big enough, he/she will either move in with our daughter or our son, so we wanted to make this space easily transformable into a luxurious yet tranquil guest room.

Tip 2. Start an inspirational collage. One of the best ways to do this while staying organized is on Pinterest.  What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a social media network that allows users to visually share images/videos on a smaller scale. Users/Followers can then click/pin/post to their boards linking to other sites. You can then take elements of those images and incorporate into an entirely new look! Below are my inspirational photos for the Modern Bohemian Nursery.

Tip 3 Start a Vision Board. Adding inspirational items to your board will help you keep track of not only your budget, but will help you collectively see the space with the items you love. and you can shop and buy as you please!

Baby J’s Nursery Vision Board

To describe this vision a little, I wanted this space to go from a nursery back to a guest room, so I added to a wall what I had always dreamt, shiplap. I decided to leave it unfinished to add a pop in the space, added lighting and an oversized framed wallpaper for visual interest.  The dimmable sconce lighting adds a tranquil mood to the room which is what I LOVE most about this space. Deciding to add layered rugs adds warmth, depth, comfort to the space, as well as a special addition to the bohemian feel. The green fiddle leaf fig plant adds a lively pop of green to the room with a contrasting coral and white planter, just a cool and beautiful touch. White furniture with black hardware and dark black/brown shelves to keep the space feeling uniform, along with the stylish yet cute African Basket Bassinet! Lastly, we picked llamas as the bedroom theme as they symbolize strength, perseverance, communication, confidence and often success, which we think is a great symbol for our new little addition.

Tips for a Spring TableScape

Welcoming the first spring weekend of April with this Spring Tablescape full of pastel colored flowers, fresh herbs, with an assortment of vases and planter pots.

Having a variety of different shaped white vases are a great buy when investing in vases for your home (mine are from Pier 1 Imports). They can be paired with different style vase and a variety of colors for different seasons. Every flower that has been in these vases looked fantastic, chic, and went with any theme and style space!

 

Table, Chairs and Fixture Specifics:

This beautiful wooden farmhouse table with matching bench was custom made and hand crafted by a lovely couple in McKinney, Texas. I’m loving everything they are doing. They are so inspiring! Check them out at The Iman Project.

 

 

For the chairs, three Folio Side Chairs in Stone / Light Grey – Crate &Barrel with the Martha Washington Arm Side Chair- Ethan Allen give a classic fresh look. I finished the the seating space with the gray colored Barret Rug 9 X 12 – Pottery Barn and the Norwell Linear Cage Pendent in Polish Nickel – Lighting ETC. I love this rug for under the table because of it tight hand knotted look, which makes it easy to clean and gives s soft fresh look. I enjoy a simple table, chair and bench combo because it is easy to decorate for everyday as well as seasonal!

The next time you are shopping for a table remember that choosing simple chairs and table will leave your color palettes open to picking a variety of colors for your everyday and seasonal center pieces.

A Few Flower Tips:

Picking flowers can be very fun and quite simple. However, for beginners, take a step back, view the theme and colors of the space. Choose a single color flower to fill the vase that will compliment the space to allow the flowers to stand out. To make this a little more complex, added different textures of the same color to your arrangement.

To make your flowers last longer, trim the stems (at least a 1/2 inch) and change the water (with new flower food) in your vase every other day the first 2-3 days after you bought and arranged them. This will help to double the life of your flowers. Don’t forget to ask for extra flower food packages!

Adding a little sparkling water, tonic water, club soda, even sprite helps to add a little extra oxygen to your flowers helping them live a little longer. I usually do this when my flowers are about a week old.

Falling For Flowers

Mya and I spent our Saturday morning grocery shopping at the Central Market!!! We couldn’t resist and had to stop and check out the variety of different flowers for sale on this beautiful day! 😊 We found a few of them we loved and thought they would be perfect in our home for fall. We can enjoy them as we continue to unpack. So, we bought four types of flowers and arranged them into 5 vases… different combinations, different sizes. Check out these photos and get inspired for fall by a few of our simple arrangements!

This little princess is a flower lover! She loves to help me arrange flowers for any occasion.

She loved the little brown vase arrangement the best, maybe because that is the one she did! lol.. Comment below and tell us which one is your favorite!

Baby breath are a great flowers for all year round! They are one of my favorites. You will see I use them EVERY season!

Can’t wait to read your comments!

Hey GUYS! I am just a few months away from finishing up my Interior Design courses to be a Certified Interior Designer. In these courses you are to do several projects within a home, what better home than your own, right? Over the past few months my husband and I were shopping for a new home for our growing family and you know, I never thought we would build a home. I always loved the character an old home has, and in my mind….as the home grows older, the home grows better. Building was well worth the wait and energy! There is so much that I have learned about our new home along the way. Being able to customize your home to fit your families day to day lifestyle and make the space functional in different unique ways was the coolest part about the whole process. I was so hands on from refinishing my lighting to finding some of my own vendors and supplies, and now that it is all complete and I am so glad I was! I must have walked the house everyday, if not more than once….LOL, “here comes Mrs. Johnson” I could hear the workers say… Just Kidding… But not :). This turned out to be the best and most rewarding project I have done. As I have many inspirations and can’t wait to share them on this site… here are a few beautiful fresh kitchens that inspired me along the way!
