The High Low Project

by Gillian

There are so many amazing children’s furniture pieces and accessories but many of them come with a steep price tag. My goal was to create a dream nursery and then recreate it on a budget. The total cost for the high budget came to $6,080. The total cost for the low budget is $2,458. That’s a $3,622 savings! How do you think they compare?

Grey for Babies?

by Gillian

In 2008, when I was pregnant with my eldest daughter Grace, I was planning her nursery and trying to find some adorable bedding and accessories. To my dismay everything for girls was PINK. I am not really a pink person and I just couldn’t imagine a pink room for her. I wish I had seen some of these incredibly chic grey palettes that have been popping up all over. I LOVE how sophisticated and modern they look, and they all seem to have a sense of calmness. Would you paint your nursery grey?
