A Touch of Pastel In Your Home

Can you believe it is April and Easter is in two days? neither! In Lou of Easter and all the pretty spring colors that seem to be floating around the stores and in mother nature, I have put together a few spaces that I have found that have just a touch of pastel. These spaces have just the right amount of that pail color.

When I think of pastel colors, I think of little baby rooms and/or Easter dresses. The spaces below feel a bit more sophisticated than that and I think you will agree.

What do you all think? Could you pull off a bit of pastel in your home? I think my favorite space would have to be that glam living room with the soft pink drapes. Now if I could convince my husband we need some pink in our home....

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Maternity Photos & Nursery Sneak Peek

We are surely counting down till the big day!  I wanted to make sure I captured this pregnancy in some way. I have really felt amazing and feel very blessed to be carrying two miracles inside of me. I can't wait to meet them and kiss their sweet faces.

Thanks to my amazing father, he was able to capture a few shots of my bump last week. I wanted to save money and splurge on a photographer when the babies arrive, but still wanted to make sure I documented this moment and journey. My dad is one talented guy!

We have also finished the nursery and I just need to edit the photos and then I can share the reveal with all of you. It really turned out quite adorable and I can't wait for our peanuts to occupy this space.

Here are just a couple of sneak peeks!

Sorry for the teaser! Hope to show you all this space next week.

Have an amazing Thursday friends! xoxo

Our {Guest Room} Updates

Yep...I am still here and these babies are still kicking inside of me. 35 weeks today! Will be sharing some maternity photos tomorrow along with a couple of peeks of the nursery. We are hoping to meet these two sweet babes in less than 2 weeks. Crazy huh?

We have been in full "Get Stuff Done" mode and I have wanted to add a few new touches to our guest room since we will be having family and friends staying with us for a few weeks after the babes are born. I wanted to create a cozy spot for guests while they are here doing HUGE favors for us. Of course we had a very small budget since every penny has been going toward the babies necessities, but I think it turned out quite nice for very little money.

I kind of wish this was my room to be honest! I love all the natural light that streams in during the day. The coral and navy color scheme against all the neutrals in the room seem so relaxing and whisper "springtime".

The wrought Iron bed was my great grandparents and I can't get myself to paint it. I love the chippy worn look for sure. The duvet and cream shams were found a few years ago at HomeGoods. The rest of the sources are listed below:

*Wall Color- Ethereal Mood (SW 7639)
*Sconces- Lowe's
*Organic Coral Fan Sheets- Target
*Navy Pillows- WillaSkye Etsy
*Coral Lumbar- HomeGoods
*White Organic Blanket- Target
*Wood Shim Sunburst -DIY
*Left Side Table- HomeGoods
*Right Side Table- Pier One Years ago
*Tufted Bench/Ottoman- Target

Can you believe that the swing arm sconces were only $31.98 each? I have been wanting some industrial sconces for quite sometime, but I could never justify paying $100 or more. These sconces only come in bronze, so I did a quick little DIY and sprayed them with a rustoleum paint/primer in one and then did the second and third coats in my favorite Metallic Gold Spray Paint also from Rustoleum to get the exact brass color I was going for.

I am pretty darn excited about this little space for our guests! To see the before pics of this room, click Here. (It's come a long way!)
