J: Hi. Busy life happening over here. We’ve missed you. Let’s catch up, shall we?

As you know, Jay and I are expecting a little boy in May and we are officially in FULL nursery planning/baby shopping mode. We will do a nursery reveal once we have the furniture installed, but here are a few items I’ve scooped so far:

Curtains: Had. To. Have. These. They’re pretty perfect for basically any room in your home.

Pottery Barn Pom Drapes

Accent Table: A table very similar to this was one of the first purchases I made for the nursery to go next to the glider. Super cute. Great price. Target wins AGAIN.

Animal Heads: I obsessed over finding wall decor for the nursery that wasn’t cheesy. Really difficult task. BEHOLD the most precious white animal heads we came across at Z Gallerie and purchased on the spot.

And now for a few pregnancy must haves…

  1. My girlfriend, Annie turned me on to Mama Mio products and they are nothing short of amazing.
  2. This top. In every color. Perfect for the layering I’ve been doing in the chilly weather. Perfect fit. Super soft.
  3. Still sporting heels on the daily, but these slippers are sweet relief when I get home. And in gold. Naturally.

Promise we won’t stay gone long this time! We have Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine’s Day on the horizon after all!

spring design trends.

Today we’re partnering with Zillow to bring you Spring Design Trends. Let’s face it. After this brutal winter, we’re longing for pastels and warmer weather. What better way to start than sprucing up your space!?

Pastel tones that were originally popular throughout 1950s decor are making a comeback in 2014. These unsaturated, lighter and sweeter versions of robust hues are perfect for adding personality and creating calming atmospheres in any room of the house.

The versatility of pastels is endless. With clever styling, they blend seamlessly into existing décor without completely redecorating. Spring is just around the corner, encouraging homeowners to get creative with trending pastels throughout their homes. Here are four tips to for incorporating lighter tones.

1. Kitchen

Pastel tones work harmoniously with kitchen fittings such as stone, wood and stainless steel. Pinks and blues add a delicate country feel while lemons and mint greens provide a refreshing glow. For kitchens with existing black or granite fittings, work in neutral pastel tones such as grey, beige and olive green for a modern look. Get creative with application; year-round pastels can be introduced within backsplashes, kitchen tiles, appliances, painted cupboards and cupboard linings, and seasonal pastels can been included in practical items such as stools, dinnerware and even bouquets.

2. Bedroom

Colors evoke different sentiments; lighter colors are often thought of as feminine while darker colors tend to feel more masculine. Because of these connotations, homeowners commonly steer clear of pastels in shared bedrooms. However the fusion of pastel tones and darker colors create a comfortable, gender-neutral space with depth and character. Investigate mixing pastels such as pale greys and blues with dark contrasts. Add them into the bedroom with furniture, bedding, painted accent walls and artwork. Tie the tones together with patterned rugs, throw pillows and light fixtures.

3. Bathroom

Pastels pop when teamed with the crisp white basins traditionally found in bath and powder rooms. Bathrooms with existing color schemes can be complemented by harmonious pastel accessories. Adding new towels, a shower curtain and countertop decorations such as candles and soap dispensers are easy ways to infuse pastels into the bathroom. For balance, choose similar pastel tones in block colors and prints. For a more permanent and modern look, update floors, backsplashes or bath walls with unique mosaic tile featuring pastels contrasted with bold colors.

4. Living Room

Adding pastels to the living room is easy; choose a color and add it to an accent wall or piece of furniture, such as an ottoman or couch. Complete the look by adding smaller accessory pieces like cushions, vases, artwork and light fixtures in similar hues. Pastels are versatile because they complement existing colors in a living room without needing primary spotlight. The key is to choose the pastel that is a less saturated hue than the current feature color in the room. For a fuchsia feature, opt for accessories in pastel pink and cream tones. For a warm and inviting living space, choose earthly pastels such as beige and latte tones. To create a livelier feel, select vivid pattern pastel fabrics and team with neon hues and metallic features.
