Thinking Ahead


I'm still working on a few small projects for Elliot's nursery, but I'm already finding myself thinking ahead to what her room will look like as she grows. I'd like to add some feminine florals and small prints, and - now this is really thinking outside my usual box - piling on colors.


These two rooms, by Christy Ford, featured in the November 2010 issue of Southern Living, are great. Christy owns a fabulous shop, but lets her daughters - aged 4 and 6 - contribute to their rooms. I think they are both precious!

These rooms are adorable! It's fun to plan ahead...I'd be lying if I said I never think of what my son's future room will look like....and he's only 3 1/2 mo. and I just finished his nursery!

I recognized those rooms immediately...I used to live in Charlottesville where she live and where the shop is. I have bought many things from And George.
