Bookshelf Styling + Ottoman Dance

How fabulous is this nursery?!?!  I mean really!  I helped my friend/partner at Novel. (Lauren) do a little bookshelf styling in her little girl's nursery.  I 'm not sure why she called on me because the girl has ridiculous style herself!!!  This nursery is to die for!!!!!  It is a huge room with super tall ceilings and a lot of gorgeous sunlight pouring in.  Lauren has also been a huge supporter of my business and just happened to have a few of my paintings hanging in the nursery!!  Love, love, love seeing them hung in a home!

Gorgeous baby girl!!!

Below is the wildflower tapestry I did last year to hang in Novel.  I think it looks so cute hanging above the fireplace in her room!!!

Love this little arrangement of pictures above her chest.  The picture on the far right is a framed 1st birthday invitation from her little girl's party.  How cute right?!  The other two paintings were two I painted that just happened to work perfectly with the colors in the invitation.

Ummm dying over this daybed and headboard!!  She just got the nailhead headboard back from the upholsterer and how great does it look!!!  Loving her Urban Outfitters (can't find online now???) spread and all those plush velvet lucky baby girl lives here!!!!

Switching gears now, I had a wonderful surprise this week.  Take a look at what my friend Harriet did with my fabric (middle blue and white chevron)....

Ta Da!!!!!!!

Excuse the absolute mess /dog in the background but just keeping things real around here.  How amazing did it turn out?!!!  I told her I didn't want a slipcover because it shifts around too much and I didn't want it upholstered because I wanted to take it off and wash it. 
 Hmmm.... whats a girl to do???
She put velcro on the underside so the fabric overlaps itself to stay in place.  How ingenious in my book because I am totally not handy/inventive when it comes to sewing!!!

And sorry, had to do it, Mr. Big (who is HUGE now and looks silly in diapers but he is still under 2 1/2) needed to make an appearance.  
This child is my crazy one.

Happy weekend folks!!!

Absolutely adore that day bed set up! I think a giant giraffe is just what the Dr. ordered in any nursery!
