Preston's Nursery

March 8, 2016 No Comments

I was deprived of the pleasure of decorating Porter’s nursery since we moved into our house less than two months before he was born and were undergoing multiple larger scale house projects at the time (first world problems, I know). It felt like torture with him being my first baby. I wanted so badly for him to have the perfect room, but I just didn’t have the physical energy to pull it off AND unpack our house. Once I adjust to being a mom of two, I’ll take on curating Porter’s little boy room.
So of course I had so much fun decorating Preston’s nursery! Unfortunately for him, he got stuck with the smallest room in the house, which made me even more determined to make sure it was cute. Living in a small space is all the rage these days right? 😉
I was originally inspired by a room I saw in a Restoration Hardware Baby & Child catalog (below), which gave me the idea to go with a nautical theme. I didn’t want your typical nautical colors (red, white and blue), so it was nice to see nautical decor with more muted tones.

My version of this room evolved as I started putting it together. I wasn’t trying to replicate this room — it was just my inspiration. The first major purchase was the rope pendant light and from there, things just slowly came together. I included sources below for anyone that’s curious about where I purchased what! So excited for baby Preston to be hanging out in his room instead of inside my belly haha. 🙂

    • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety
    • Happy birthday to my sweet 3 year old Preston Henry. You have always and will always have your mama’s heart ❤️

@edwardsfamily4 curated the most gorgeous baby shower, no surprise there 💖✨ #babyshower #babynumber3 #boyorgirl
    • Belated Valentine’s celebration with this guy 😍. Staycation perks: staying out late with zero accountability followed by sleeping in. Also, having uninterrupted conversations; that’s always nice too 🤪 #boglevineyards #sheratongrandsacramento #forevervalentine
    • There’s nothing I love more than watching these two love on each other 🥰❤️. What is everyone up to for Valentines Day? Personally I hate going out the day-of, so Ryan planned a little night away this weekend and he made dinner reservations and I DON’T KNOW WHERE. And I didn’t wife-cromanage this; he made these plans all on his own 😂🙌🏻 #valentinesday2019
    • In case anyone was wondering, I’m still obsessed with having a sun room, and @boglevineyards wines. #rainydaydontcare #californiamom #needtobeoutside #sacramentoblogger
    • I truly do cherish our Costco lunch dates, even though it was freezing cold today. My baby is almost 3 and it’s kind of making me sad. Time really does speed up the older you get, especially after you have kids 😢. #cherrishthemoment #prestonhenry #secondborn
    • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
    • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
