Our Southern Living Feature {Gender Neutral Nursery}

Now on to fun details about our little boy’s room that was featured in Southern Living.  The photos for the magazine were actually shot when he was 9 months old.  It wasn’t published until exactly one year later.  I didn’t have this blog at the time.  So, I’m just now posting about it.

  1. What a great write up! Your nursury is beautiful.. sniff, sniff… it reminds me so much of our old nursery that got distroyed last weekend! They grow up so fast. Okay, I will stop. Anyway, love the article. You are one mean decorator!

  2. Wow! This really cool that you were featured in Southern Living. I have heard about the staging before, changing and adding things that you would not have included. I think that would be difficult. Lovely room. How did SL contact you to be in the magazine? I have a friend who's mom was in Traditional Home many years ago. She said the experience was not what you would think it would be, she was super stressed.Amy R.

  3. What a precious room! So awesome to be featured in a magazine. Reading this post, I was totally feeling you on the whole "staging" thing. It would be hard for me to sit back and let them take over too. Nevertheless, amazing room, amazing work!
