Nora's Nursery

I have been getting lots of requests to show Nora's Nursery. Well here is the big reveal!

While in the "nesting" stage of my pregnancy I was very inspired. I mean I was "Sleeping with the Enemy" organized in a disturbing way. I had to have every picture hung and onesie washed. I thought once the baby arrived I would not have time to do anything (kind of became true). I wanted to create a space that was whimsical, vintage and modern all at the same time. I considered avoiding pink on the walls, but that just didn't feel right. In the coming weeks I will show you how I created furniture and accessories for the room. I think you will be surprised how you do not need to spend a fortune to create a nursery.

So... here it is Nora's boudoir! I just had to do before and after photos, I am such a sucker for that. Thanks to my talented friend Laura Squire of Ra-foto.com the after photos look lovely!

MyDiab's New Addition

If anyone has been wondering why I have not done a post in 2 months this is why. Introducing the newest member to the Decorator in a Box team Nora Grace born June 22nd. I couldn't be a happier new Mommy or feel more blessed. I can't wait to introduce her to the world of interior design if she is interested. If she would rather be an astronaut that is fine too.


In the weeks ahead I will share Nora's nursery design with you all. I will show you how to turn an antique vanity into a changing table, add detail to a ready made crib skirt and valance, create wall art from handkerchiefs and more.

I had know idea having a little bundle would give me this much design inspiration!
