It’s getting exciting in here. Things are coming together and the room is taking shape. The wife can’t wait to start accessorizing and filling the space up with cute little ephemera. Amazing Woodlands Wallpaper by the talented @fleurharris in Dusty Blue. Available via @jimmycricketau We’ll be moving in a mid century dresser as the changing table and I’ve been adapting a leather club chair into a rocker/swivel chair for nursing and exhausted naps. Will post on the blog soon. Have you heard there’s a lot of work that goes into having a baby?! 😂🤦🏼‍♂️ .

And we’re getting closer. Belly is getting bigger. Room is coming together and soon wallpaper by @fleurharris. A magical wall of woodland creatures to provide hopeful hours sweet dreams. .

F’ing laser beams! Next up wainscoting. Going with a 48” wainscot around the room. Simple panels with a clear coated oak top rail. Flooring is down, stained and coated with Vermont Natural Coatings. .

Slowly but surely. Floor coming together. #pbteen light in. Next up - sanding flooring, staining flooring, finishing flooring, wainscoting, painting, wallpaper and...then a baby. 😃😀😳😰 .

And now we wait... Hardwood floors need about 72 hours to acclimate in the home/space they’ll be installed. (Mine will acclimate a little longer since my weekend is already booked.) Going with oak floors with a stain color TBD. Used utility oak from @lumberliquidators - a good amount of waste per bundle but at .99/SF for the 2-1/4” - and my free labor - it should finish up nicely and for relatively low cost. Will be putting down an underlayment prior to nailing down the floor.

Well...scratch those other ones. Not sure why but I’m digging this light. Brassy. Mid-Centuryish. (Mid Century meets Art Nouveau?) Plus - I like the leaves that will in a way tie in with the wallpaper. Not too jungly but more like ferns you might find in a forest. So yeah - here it is. On order. 20% off @pbteen right now. Let there be light! .

Lighting. There are soooo many choices. Our overall look leans toward #midcentury with aged brass and walnut wood. While trying to stay economical but also adding a little interest to the ceiling I’d like to keep the light under $300 and under $250 if possible. Did anyone know that renovations and kids are expensive?! Ha. Thankfully I do most of the work myself. #diy So which one would you choose out of these four?! I need help though I do have two favorites. The ceiling is only 8’ so take that into consideration. .

A blank canvas with a mid-century clue of what’s to come. 🔨🎢🍼 #design #nursery #nurserydecor #nurseryinspo #nurseryinspiration #nurserydesign #nurserystyling #parenting #firstxdad #firsttimedad #style #interiordesign #interiors
Cribs. There are literally a million kinds, colors, shapes, price points. We’re going with simple whites, walnut wood tones and this crib from by Baby Mod via @wayfair fits the bill both in price and in design. The beauty about this one is it’s also convertible so it should grow with our soon to be babe. The reviews are great and while it’s currently sitting in the box in the basement - we’ll post a ‘construction time lapse’ when we’re ready to furnish the nursery. 🔨 🔧

So – what’s this blog about? Well – to be honest – I’m going to find that out. I’ve never been a dad before and I’m incredibly excited about it. This blog/instagram/pinterest page will focus on design, child rearing and perhaps a ‘flip-side’ perspective of parenting. Early on I’ll be focused on the design and construction of the nursery.

By trade I’m a design professional with an undergraduate degree in Interior Architecture and a Master of Architecture. I’m currently working through my Architectural Registration Exams and hope to be finished and in the final stages of licensing before this little babe comes along. I’ll be posting photos throughout the process and while I’ve already stripped the room of its former identity (an office/study) – I hope to include you in the process. If you’re reading this – thanks for that – and if you decide to follow me/us on this journey – I’m incredibly grateful.
