Urban Jungle Nursery Theme

Nursery Theme Thursday 5: Urban Jungle

By Kelly Rogers / May 3, 2012 /

Happy Thursday! I would like to introduce this week’s featured nursery theme – Urban Jungle (minus the pollution, noise, and general hub-bub, of course!)… I have to admit – this one was inspired by the adorable Skyline bedding collection from Dwell Studio. I have been looking for an opportunity to feature it. I love how…

Sunbrella Fabrics Come In From The Patio

By Kelly Rogers / April 27, 2012 /

I have talked to so many people who are nervous about investing in good upholstered furniture because they have children. With good reason – I have witnessed said good upholstered furniture permanently stained unwittingly by a child who had just gotten her face painted. We all saw it happening, as if in slow motion, but…

Functional Cabinetry for the Dream Kitchen

By Kelly Rogers / April 24, 2012 /

We are at an exciting stage in defining the interior of our new home – kitchen design. Never having been through this process before, I guess I didn’t realize just how many choices there are to be made. Door style and finish, layout, color, appliances, decorative accents, tiled backsplash, cabinetry features and functionality and seating…

Nursery Theme Thursday - Little Miss Sunshine

Nursery Theme Thursday 3: Little Miss Sunshine

By Kelly Rogers / April 19, 2012 /

For this Nursery Theme Thursday, I had my mind set on doing a button-cute baby girl’s room – but I’m not, nor have I ever been, what you’d call a girly girl. So this week’s theme, Little Miss Sunshine, is my take on a decidedly feminine (and appropriately juvenile) nursery without the frills, ribbons and…

Design Thinking for the Real World – 4/14/12

By Kelly Rogers / April 14, 2012 /

Lately I’ve read on a couple of different design blogs that nursery themes are now considered passe. I have to admit I was surprised by this. I’ve written many posts on themes for baby rooms, including my own son’s Yellow Submarine nursery, and stand by them. We can agree to disagree. Today’s Design Thinking for…

A House With Good Bones

By Kelly Rogers / April 12, 2012 /

It is often said of an old and gracious home in need of some TLC that it has “good bones.” I think what this usually means is that it has the potential to regain its former glory through extensive renovation and/or expansion. Well, in our case, our house is in the midst of construction –…

Nursery Theme Thursday - Goodnight Moon

Nursery Theme Thursday 2: Goodnight Moon

By Kelly Rogers / April 12, 2012 /

In the great green room, there was a telephone, and a red balloon, and a picture of…the cow jumping over the moon. And three little bears sitting on chairs. Yes, by now I could recite the entire book by heart. For those not yet indoctrinated, I’m quoting Goodnight Moon – the classic children’s story penned…
