The Nursery

Jackson's nursery was completed in large part due to the generosity of our family and friends who gifted us with so much!  We are blessed and thankful to have been gifted with so many beautiful pieces that helped shape this room.  The "hand me downs", purchased items and hand made gifts from family and friends are all so appreciated.  I cried when my work gifted us with that awesome glider chair!  Jackson is well loved.  

I really enjoyed dreaming up a nursery for our little guy and was excited to start from scratch on designing the space.  I wanted to keep it simple and gender neutral so that I can re-use all of these items in the future if we are to have a girl.  Listed below are the resources for almost everything shown in the photos above.  Thank you to everyone who generously provided gifts for Jackson!

Exterior Paint

The paint is peeling on our light yellow home and our summer goal (also last summer's goal)  is to finally put a fresh coat of paint on that bad boy.  I have been collecting exterior home images in varying shades of grey and these are some of my favorites: 
Images: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
I love the look of a crisp white home with only the shutters and door painted, but this can also look unfinished on certain homes.  I think it just depends on the style of the home.  I ruled the all-white look out.  Matt did, too.  I then thought a very light warm grey would be nice and we tested a few out on the house. I thought for sure one of these would work, but they all looked too yellow or mauve or green...not what I am going for.  I decided that it might be best to do a medium true grey (on the warmer side) - darker than I had planned, but I think it will look fresh and fun.  Plus, walking around our neighborhood I have noticed a trend in the light grey / beige color and I don't really like to follow the crowd.

 Do you have a tried and true grey paint that you love?  Please share!

Bridal Shower | Invitation

I really enjoyed designing the invitation for my sister-in-laws bridal shower that I hosted this weekend!  I wanted to keep the design simple and stick to the facts, with some added flair.  These little invitations however, brought out a very frustrated and panicked side of me... 

I like how the invitations turned out, but the challenge was finding a place to print them on Kauai.  The options were limited and the print quality was not what I had hoped for.  To make matters even more frustrating, I spent an entire day driving around (and calling) various stores looking for 5x7 envelopes.  It was when I was at the post office asking if they knew where I could find the envelopes, that a women said, "Ace Hardware has 5x7 envelopes."  Oh right, why didn't I think of that in the first place?  Sure enough, Ace Hardware had the envelopes.  Ah, the "challenges" of life on an island... ;)
