decorating

Many of you have asked about our registry, and the items we have found most valuable thus far. So with the giant caveat that we’re only a few months in on this whole “Oh my goodness, we have a son!” bit, here’s my list… Crib: Remember the closet that became the nursery? Only this crib […]

Not enough wallspace

by Ashley on October 21, 2011

There are so many amazing new wallpapers showing up lately. Recent favorites by Famille Summerbelle (top) and Emma Molony. I love how you don’t immediately see that Molony’s are scenes from Peter Pan; they could be for a grown-up who doesn’t want to wear a serious expression in the middle of July…  Both could be, […]

Closet Space: Hudson’s crib

by Ashley on September 28, 2011

Hudson is now occasionally sleeping in his crib, so I thought it might be a good time to share some photos of Aron’s closet-space-turned-nursery. There are really two doors inside our apartment: one to the bathroom, and one beside the bed leading to the walk-through closet that leads to the bathroom (you can see it […]

Silhouettes

by Ashley on September 22, 2011

Did any of you get your silhouette cut by the artist on Disneyland’s Main Street when you were a child? What a treasure! Is the shop still there? Until we can go and see, on my wish list for Hudson:  a custom-made silhouette by Love & Victory.

Bedtime Bus Roll

by Ashley on July 8, 2011

What a sweet idea! A bedtime scroll modeled after vintage bus rolls by MySweetPrints. You can even send a note to the designer if your routine varies!

Choosing a mobile

by Ashley on June 23, 2011

Our mobile just arrived! We chose a handmade, paper mobile by Frazier and Wing: “Sunshine” (top image). It’s more subdued that some, but our wallpaper around the crib is so high-contrast that this seemed to be the perfect choice. All of  Heather Frazier’s collection is really beautiful. However, we did do a lot of looking […]

Bouncing in style

by Ashley on June 8, 2011

When talk of a bouncer arose, Aron was at first dead-set on the very sleek Coco Stylewood Baby Lounger from bloom (after all, when you’re bringing furniture into a studio apartment, you better like how it looks). I have to admit, it’s pretty lovely! But that bentwood construction comes at a steep price. A less […]

Animal Farm

by Ashley on April 26, 2011

I’ve been eyeing the cute kids’ wallpaper at Ferm Living for a while now, and Aron and I just ordered a roll of the Animal Farm! I love the gender-neutral theme. I can’t wait for it to arrive. We’re going to paper the wall behind our mini-crib to set off the space. (Image: Ferm Living)

Where will you put him?

by Ashley on April 18, 2011

While visiting family and friends in California, the most frequently asked question about the new baby has perhaps been where he (and all of his things) will fit in our little 500-square-foot apartment. My first thought? Good question. We’ve made some progress–at least as far as the baby is concerned; his things are another topic. Aron’s […]
