Welcome to the first post of "A Look Inside." I LOVED putting together my children's rooms
and I know many other moms get equally excited about it. Part of my job as a lifestyle photographer
allows me to spend time in nurseries and kids rooms, and I just love how each
one is so unique.
I see so many moms who
put so much time and thought toward their child's first room, the space where
their little one will grow and learn and spend their early
years. "A Look Inside" will show you
the details of these rooms, real rooms styled by real moms, to give inspiration
and ideas for decorating your own.
I thought it would be fitting to show my daughter's room for the
first post. Her room is simple but I
just love the feeling I get when I am in it. It's a mix of old and new.
One of my favorite things about her room is the amazing
evening light that comes in her window. My husband chose the wall color and I was really surprised by what a
great job he did. It wasn't a color I
would have chosen, but now I just love it and the bright warm feeling it gives

Sheet and Bed Skirt: Made by me (don't look closely at the seams!). I followed tutorials online and it's really a
LOT easier than you'd think.

One of my favorite Pinterest finds was using the IKEA
picture ledges as bookshelves for little kids.
I will end this little tour of her room by
showing one of my most favorite photos of her and her brother when she was a
newborn. I know there will be many more
memories to be made in her little space. Thanks for looking!
