A Neutral Nursery
It’s true what they say, things change when you become a parent. Mostly, your concept of time –
which I can officially say, I have lost on all accounts.

We welcomed our first son, Hudson, just over a year ago, and full disclosure it has been nearly 16 months of growing & adapting for both, myself (more info to come in the next post!) and my husband – just general life in full force. I am in complete and total awe of him; he is layered, textured and just so perfectly innocent. He already knows how to live his best life! I learn from him daily.

These are some of the last photos I took before giving birth. Seeing them now feels a little nostalgic, because I can faintly recall this feeling of peace, quiet and total control over my surroundings… and boy do I miss it! Here, his neutral nursery is clean, serene, dynamic. And aside from this truly abhorrent carpet we haven’t been able to replace just yet (yes, we must choose our battles with home decor projects) – I am pleased with how it all turned out. Calming neutrals, soft textures and sweet little animal prints make it cozy. The dark wall adds contrast – just a little touch of masculine strength – without being too overbearing.

Though the space has changed some as he has grown over this past year, I thought it fruitful/valuable to stop and actually pin down my official vision – to take a moment to appreciate that while things tend to be a constant work in progress, it’s OK to recognize a point in time when you felt a project come to completion –
even if just for a fleeting moment.
