Inspired!

September 11, 2009

Inspiration: noun [in-spuh-rey-shuhn] an inspiring or animating action or influence, a result of inspired activity, a thing or person that inspires.

I found my “inspiration room” for the new nursery that hubs and I are working on, and I am excited!

Yes, I get excited over silly things like opening up a fresh new magazine, or finding the best deal on baby formula, or sleeping in freshly laundered sheets, or sipping on a thick, fattening chocolate milkshake. Among other things.

Anyway, I’m a frequent visitor to a blog you probably know about – The Lettered Cottage. And I am totally inspired by her sitting room. So cozy, so lovely, so chic, so comfy!


I want to try and use her room as an inspiration for the nursery. Can’t wait to try those striped walls and I’m just dying over the fabrics! (I’m channeling my inner Rachel Zoe)

Ok, so here’s the sad, so-depressing-it’s-almost-funny part. Wanna see what our room looks like now?

Are you sure?

Are you really sure?

Ok, brace yourself.

She’s a beauty, ain’t she? Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Beyond the bare studded walls and concrete floor, I do see potential, don’t you? Maybe if you squint your eyes enough you’ll see it too. At least we have new windows and the electrical part is pretty much done (I think-gotta check with the hubs on that).

I love, love, love to work on projects like this. It makes me get all jittery and excited and HAPPY!! It’s been a slower process than I would have liked, but I’m trying to be patient and just be thankful that I have a super-talented husband who can do all the work himself!
