Client Reveal: DIY Nursery E-Design

Nurseries have to be one of my favorite spaces to design. Whether they are bright and bold, or neutral and soothing, I love creating a space for a sweet baby and their parents to enjoy.  Heck, I'm having a ball designing one for my little one now and can't wait to share it with you!

While I was away in South Africa, one of my good friends had a precious little girl and I was thrilled when she asked if I would help design her nursery! The nursery would include many DIY projects, fun girly fabrics, and pops of bright colors. We played with a few fabric combinations and colors but, in the end, narrowed it down to this pretty little design.


This room is all about the fabrics and DIY projects. The fun combination of floral and geometric with pops of bright color look great on baby girl's bedding that my friend made herself. She also created a cute bird mobile (similar to this one) as well all the art, seat cushions and curtains using some of the same fabrics. 



Creating a beautiful space doesn't alway have to be expensive. With a little direction and a lot of DIY-ing, my friend created a precious nursery that didn't break the bank! 

Looking for a little direction for a room in your home? I would love to help! Just take a look at my services and then shoot me an email to get started!

Breaking the Silence

Hello Somebody! I am working on getting back in to the swing of things after my "maternity leave" - and pregnancy leave for that matter. Our little boy arrived June 29th, just three days after we moved back in to our home, and we are head over heels in love with our newest addition.



When we left off I was sharing all the plans David and I had for our renovation.  The renovation is now complete and we are finishing up a few DIY projects on our to-do list. The problem is I feel like each detail of the room has to be perfect before I share it but I know that things will never be just perfect, or at least not for a while!

I'll be back soon with a pre-renovation home tour and also a fun client reveal! See you soon!

Back Home with Big News

Hi Everyone! I wanted to (finally) check in and let you all know that David and I made it back home safely just a few days before Christmas. With the holidays and trying to somewhat move back in to our house, the days and weeks have flown by. We are now working out all the details of purchasing our home but that hasn't stopped us from already tackling a few DIY projects. I'll be back later with a few updates and tips from our adventures so far in ceiling scraping, painting, and ripping out old carpet.

But in other news.... David and I brought home a little someone extra home from South Africa!


That's right!! We have a little one on the way! We are so excited for this next big adventure! He or She will be here in just a short 5 1/2 months so we have a lot to do in order to finish the remodel and decorate a nursery!!


If you follow me on Instagram (alauraorr), you have already seen these videos but, just for fun, I thought I'd share our families' reactions to the news of our new addition.  At Christmas we gave the new grandparents, aunts and uncles, and great grandparents each a Curious George book along with a note that asked them to read the book to Baby Orr in July!
