Inspiration: noun [in-spuh-rey-shuhn] an inspiring or animating action or influence, a result of inspired activity, a thing or person that inspires.

I found my "inspiration room" for the new nursery that hubs and I are working on, and I am excited!

Yes, I get excited over silly things like opening up a fresh new magazine, or finding the best deal on baby formula, or sleeping in freshly laundered sheets, or sipping on a thick, fattening chocolate milkshake. Among other things.

Anyway, I'm a frequent visitor to a blog you probably know about - The Lettered Cottage. And I am totally inspired by her sitting room. So cozy, so lovely, so chic, so comfy!

I want to try and use her room as an inspiration for the nursery. Can't wait to try those striped walls and I'm just dying over the fabrics! (I'm channeling my inner Rachel Zoe)

Ok, so here's the sad, so-depressing-it's-almost-funny part. Wanna see what our room looks like now?

Are you sure?

Are you really sure?

Ok, brace yourself.

She's a beauty, ain't she? Don't say I didn't warn you!

Beyond the bare studded walls and concrete floor, I do see potential, don't you? Maybe if you squint your eyes enough you'll see it too. At least we have new windows and the electrical part is pretty much done (I think-gotta check with the hubs on that).

I love, love, love to work on projects like this. It makes me get all jittery and excited and HAPPY!! It's been a slower process than I would have liked, but I'm trying to be patient and just be thankful that I have a super-talented husband who can do all the work himself!


  1. a clean slate is an awesome thing!! :)
    Love that room too...
    know what- you've reminded me that it's time to change the sheets- fresh sheets are the best. :)

  2. can wait to see the finished project/product. its sure to be amazing after you get your hands on it and place your signature touches on the room.

  3. It'll be beautiful! That little room at Lettered Cottage IS beautiful inspiration.

    Enjoy the process~

  4. I love it when your title is something like "Inspired" - I am sure to be just that! ( :
    Can not wait to see your finished room - people like you are amazing to me since I've been trying to find that creative bone in me and just can't seem to find it! ( :
    But seeing other people's creations makes me happy!

  5. Wow, you must have a talented hubby! I feel the same way about a new room. So many possibilities! Enjoy. Can wait to see the final pics. Love the inspriration room!

  6. i can see it Amy!!

    i love projects like this too....and thank the good Lord for a husband who can do just about anything!!!
