Monday Blues // 39

June 17, 2013

Happy Monday, party people. Are we ready for another week? I actually have this week off with the intention of getting as many things knocked out as humanly possible....things like a waaaaaaaaay overdue eye appointment (I'd been putting this off because I heard rumor that your vision can change during pregnancy, but I'm supremely delinquent on the pair of contacts I've been wearing)...touring the hospital...looking into daycare...finding a pediatrician....working on the nursery (and now the office that is frighteningly overrun with homeless items previously in the nursery)...you know, all of the fun stuff that's hard to tackle on top of regular life.

I might sneak some fun in there, too.


What we WON'T be tackling anytime soon is our master bedroom. I knew this would be the case from day one, but I still itch to make our room a sanctuary. I have been dead set on charcoal grass cloth, but can't seem to pull the trigger because of the price tag. It's just too extravagant when there are so many other things draining the bank account. So we will continue to hold out until that can happen....or until I change my mind on the grass cloth. Whichever comes first.


I came across this master bedroom designed by Emily Henderson recently, and I really love the look and feel. Fresh, bold, and the right mix of old and new. Definitely going into the inspiration file.


Those geode lamps were overdone in blogland with a quickness, so I haven't considered them despite the assortment of delicious candy colors....until I saw the picture above. And now I really want one! A burl wood campaign dresser perch wouldn't hurt either.

Love how she faked larger windows with the curtains. Also sort of obsessed with the gold curtains and curtain rods. Delicious contrast with the blues. Well done, Emily.

Not that she needs my approval. I think we already knew she was awesome, didn't we?

Good! Get things done! Also make sure you go to the dentist after you have your baby....a lot of women actually get a lot of cavities because of hormonal changes during pregnancy....Yes,I adore this room. And yes that lam was overdone but it looks fab in white...I think I had seen it in every color except for white....amazing!!

Hello! Nicole here, I know you know it is a bad idea, but I have to share my experience. I had blurry vision while I was pregnant, so I went to the eye doctor. By the time I picked out and ordered and received my glasses (about 4-6 weeks) my eyes changed and the glasses didn't work. My vision had changed. You may be wasting money on this doctor visit, but maybe you will be luckier than I was. Good luck!

Love this! Those curtains are fab! How funny, I also posted about how we will never do our master bedroom, but it's all I'm thinking about lately. Ha! Have fun getting the nursery together! Thanks for reminding me to call the hospital. I've seriously done nothing to prepare for this baby. Probably time to get moving!!

I remember seeing this room...there's a Lulu & Georgia rug in there (where I work) and I was just floored by how she pulled it all together...again not surpising (she's pretty amazing), but love it so much!

Emily can do no wrong. Ever.

Emily is the best. Does she still have her show on HGTV? I used to love that one and DVR'd it, but then got sick of it being reruns all of the time.
