Vote for Rooms

Boys Room- Winner!

And you thought I forgot… :)

Just to recap: Two months ago (wow, that's scary) I posted a bunch of pictures of boys rooms.  If you missed it- click here. Y'all voted for your favorite(s). The judges deliberated. (my mom volunteered to count up the votes. Thanks Mom. I think she got the hint when she asked me nicely one day while I was up to my eyeballs moving the house, scheduling subs, answering millions of phone calls,TOTAL chaos-

 "Have you counted the blog votes yet?"-Mom

<insert jaw-dropping death glare>

"….. Hmmm… Ok.-Why don't I just do it."


Anyway, back to the game. If you're not familiar- I basically piece the winning room together on a budget. Yay! Game for me. Treat for you.

THE RESULTS:

  A tie!!  between #6 and #17

Peter dunnham boysroom

seventeen.

Nice choices!

I've noticed from past voting contests that y'all always choose the room with the best view and the most amount of built-ins. Either y'all are trying to torture me or y'all just have good taste. I'm thinking the latter… :) Obviously the #6 room is more difficult to recreate without a big window and a trim carpenter (unfortunately neither are on sale at Pottery Barn).

So, with that being said, I recreated a hybrid of the two rooms… a room that would last a while. Not too "baby boy" but still youthful and cute at the same time.

Boys
1. Slipcovered Twin Headboards in Espresso French Stripe from Pottery Barn {on sale now}

2. Garnet Hill skier sheets (Apparently these aren't available anymore? I'm not surprised considering I started this post months ago. Darn! But Garnet Hill always has really cute sheets for kids. Sheets are also the place where you can do whatever THEY want. Let the boys pick them out. If they are heinous you can cover them up!)

3. Quilted Pillows from West Elm

4. Wool coverlet from Ralph Lauren Home {on sale now}

5. Ceramic table lamp from Pottery Barn

6. Hand Embroidered Turkish Pillow by sukan on Etsy

7. Tribal prints from Panteek

9. Kilim rug from West Elm

10. Benjamin Moore HC-80 Bleeker Beige

Oh boys,…. People seem to get stuck with decorating boys bedrooms- whether they are age 3 or age 13. In fact, the difficulty increases with age. 

This calls for….. Voting time!!

Nurseries

I recently found out one of my cousins is expecting a baby in June! She has asked me to help with the nursery and I couldn't be more excited. She lives in my OUR great grandmother's old house so it will be even more special to help spruce it up for the little one. I've been looking through my 'nursery file' to find inspiration... and I want to share some ones that have appealed to me over the years.

So, please cast your votes for your favorite nursery! 

And like these previous posts you voted on :: (white kitchens) (twin bedrooms) ::  I will piece together the winning bedroom on a budget! So make sure you vote. (Even if you aren't planning on having a baby anytime soon- just pretend you're being held at  gunpoint and you HAD to choose one room!)... Really I'm just interested to see what you guys like. :)
