Double Vision

When I found out I was pregnant, after the initial excitement of becoming a Mommy set in…my mind started designing the Nursery! I had no idea which gender I was having yet so I decided I would come up with some mock designs for both. At that time I really felt like I was having a boy, so I designed that room first. Well, I was WRONG so on to the next thought process. Maybe for fun I’ll have to post my boy’s design board later!

When designing, I like to take one item whether it be an art piece, area rug or even a fabric pattern and build off of that. It takes much of that overwhelming feeling out of design. The hard part then becomes what will that one piece be? I wanted a room that would grow with my daughter so it had to be more mature than a typical baby room but still be whimsical enough for a baby. When I found these art pieces, I knew I had found my inspiration. I have a Boston Terrier (ahem…see my Design Assistant) and what woman doesn’t love purses! A yellow & black palette would give the room some sophistication…BINGO…we have set our mood!

 
 

 

 How do you like that table accessory…wink wink?

 

Ok, so now on to why this post is titled “Double Vision”. My best friend Jen Skog threw me the most AMAZING baby shower. She took my vision for my Nursery and turned it into a whimsical soiree. Jen is a professional photographer but from the looks of her design I’d say she has a career in event design wouldn’t you say? Her design was even featured on The Cake Blog.  Details included Boston Terrier and Handbag cookies for the favors as well as the cutest floral arrangement I’ve ever seen.  A purse made from yellow poms to mimic the purse in my inspiration artwork…SERIOUSLY?!?!  I was blown away.  I’m going to let the photos do the rest of the talking.

 
 
 
 
Here I am looking ready to pop but was no where near! 
 
 
All in all both Jen’s and my visions came to life and it just goes to show how different areas of design, whether it be interiors, fashion, events, etc. all go hand in hand.

  • Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or
    plugin that might be able to correct this
    problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

    • I actually didn’t realize there was a problem with my site…but I do now! I’ve been wanting to do a little re-vamping to my site again so will for sure keep that in mind for mobile settings. I don’t know off hand a plugin. I’m only medium tech savvy I would say so would not even know where to begin with that. Sorry =( Thanks for reading though. I always appreciate any comments that can help my readers so I will put this on my to do list!
