The Nursery

My husband and I started to transform what used to be our guest bedroom into the nursery a few months ago.  We started the process started off by painting the original boring beige walls the perfect shade of pale pink and we replaced the original ugly light fixture that used to be on the ceiling with a chandelier (original before and after posts here and here).  I knew I wanted the room to be a soothing, calm place so I kept the wall decor to a minimum and chose the color combination of pale pink, light sage and white.

In addition to meeting so many of the talented bloggers I admire, one of the highlights of attending the LuckyFABB conference in Santa Monica last April, was seeing the beautiful Jessica Alba and her business partner, Christopher Gavigan speak about their passion project, The Honest Company.  For those of you who may not be familiar with The Honest Company, they make all natural, eco-friendly products for baby and home.  After hearing them speak, I instantly knew that I wanted to use Honest products for our baby.  Anything that's safe for our baby and the environment is a win win.  To any of the mommies out there, I'd love to know what baby products you can't live without!

  7. I went back and forth between cloth diapers and disposables and when I heard about The Honest Co. I was sold as well! Can't wait for baby to get here so we can actually use them!

  20. It's so pretty and clean! I love white decor and with pretty pops of color like the pink and sage, it just looks even more beautiful. I see you have one of my favorite must-haves: a wipe warmer! I only used wipes for a few months because my son's skin was so sensitive, so we switched to cloth diapers and cotton-flannel wipes after that. Oh, and I also recommend a baby carrier. One that properly aligns baby's hips and spine like the Ergo (the one we have) or the Beco. I also used a Ring Sling and a Mei Tai when he was tiny. :) <3

  23. Beautiful and so soft and feminine for a lil lady!
    I use HONEST diapers and products for my lil guys and LOVE THEM. Connor is now pottytrained and I almost hated to give up the cool printed diapers, lol. Good thing Preston came along to start the diaper process all over again. They just added this new print called lumberjack and I am so excited to get in my monthly packup this month...How sad is that??? Looking forward to seeing the print on my baby's diaper. HA!
    Hope you are feeling good in the homestretch.
