I’m back! I’m back from the holiday madness. I’m back from toys EXPLODING all over my house. I’m back (thank god) at work, and it’s 2011! I have such high hopes for this year (and big plans for Caden Lane), I just can’t wait to jump in! Oh, but wait, most importantly…. I’m back BLOGGING again. You missed me, right?
So, to start it off right. I’m FINALLY posting pictures of my daughters Boutique Collection inspired room. Ashlyn will be 3 in February, and although she loves her new room – complete with a stage for her to play on – I’m pretty sure I like it even more. Who would have ever thought that light blue and pink could look so good together. I had a suspicion.. but I’ve got to say, this room is even more fabulous in person!
But, before I post pics… let’s play catch up! Soooo, any day now the very pregnant Samantha Harris is going to POP! And we can’t wait! We go up at the end of January to design her new baby’s nursery. What is she having you ask? Well, it’s a surprise! (For us too.) We’ve picked out everything for her dream boy or girl nursery, and I must say, they are F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! Whichever she doesn’t have, I will have one complete room designed for anyone that needs a little help! In fact, I promise right now to post both design sheets – so to maybe inspire your own room!
We leave next week for the Atlanta Gift Market - where we will be introducing the brand new Limited Edition additions. They aren’t up on the website yet (we just finished photographing them), but they should be by the end of the week. So keep checking back!
Then at the end of January, we leave for New York for the NYIGF (New York International Gift Fair).
Oh, and in between those two markets- we will be in Los Angeles doing Samantha Harris’ nursery!
Yikes, I’m tired just thinking about everything scheduled for this month!
So, on to the pictures. (taken on my iphone) And who says black and brown don’t mix? I LOVE the black and white zebra mixed in with all the brown! It’s the first thing you look at, right?
Here’s a pic of her “stage” – which is now COVERED in toys! (This pic was taken before Christmas.)
And of course, her storybook princess rug… appropriately stated since she thinks she’s Snow White….
And my VERY FAVORITE wall art in the room is this beautiful canvas hanging! It looks vintage, and the artist custom matched the colors to match our bedding perfectly! It’s on a thick canvas, and hangs from a wood crown molding. Oh – and it has glitter and sparkles on it. Yes, it’s that perfect.
Here’s a picture from the artist’s website:
The canvas is 2′x3′, and $158. If you would like us to order you one, we are more than happy to! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get it to you ASAP. Make sure you order it through us though, b/c you’ll want the colors to match the bedding. (The original is slightly off.)
So, that’s it for now! A quick little blurb with some lovely pictures. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish all of you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Here’s to a great 2011 – and hopefully, better blogging from me.
