Nursery Decor – Etsy Favorites – Baby….

Our girl´s room was such a heartfelt project. I loved every second I spent planning, working and decorating in there always thinking how my two girls will grow up together in their beautiful shared room.

All of the decor pieces I put into the shelf are picked with a meaning behind. Most of them are from etsy. My number one online place for personalized and special pieces you won´t get at any other place.

Sentimental / Memorable Pieces

I am sentimental in every way. I look at certain pieces and pictures or clothes from my kids and get tears in my eyes immediately by remembering the special moments. They grow up so fast and I try to keep as much as possible cause time is truly a thief. I have kept almost all of the girls important and meaningful pieces from their birth like their hospital bands and first name tags. 

Both of my girls have one of the shelves reserved for their things like personalized pieces and special gifts. Also pictures of them from their first weeks of life. I just can´t believe how little they once were.

 

Decorative Pieces to play with

These are the ones I incorporated throughout the whole shelf which are meant to play with but also have a decorative character like the wooden rainbow, the tea set or the Claris books. The tea set is Emilia´s favorite piece in her room. She loves to play picnic with her stuffed animals and her dad and this one comes in handy. It is ceramic but I told her to handle it carefully and so far she does. The Claris books are the cutest in my opinion, they work great as background for the shelves. The look-and-find books are the best to learn new words and things from the chic and fashionable world Claris lives in.

 

Storage

Hidden or decorative storage is a huge space saver cause it serves as two pieces in one. Baskets work always in your favor. First of all you can´t spot what it´s in there and second of all you can choose styles plus it won´t look less cluttered with baskets in a shelf. If your children are still little it is much easier for them to tidy up by themselves.

Our Little Coffee Corner at Home…

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/;Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I just love my morning coffee. It is one of the little things I cherish everday over and over. The first sip of coffee is like a huge burst of energy running through my veins I just can´t describe this feeling. Also in my opinion the first coffee of the day tastes best. No matter where you get it in which way you decide to drink it. I always have a black coffee with a splash of fat free milk but if we are out for breakfast I´ll get a cappuccino and if we are at Starbucks I´ll usually have a vanilla latte. 3 super boring coffee orders but that´s just me. I like it simple and sometimes with a little twist.

Now let´s move on to our coffee corner I have created over the years we have lived in our house and to this day I think it is the perfect spot to make my morning coffee. I can wait for the coffee maker to heat up while breathing in fresh morning air from the window besides and I can also have a look outside how the weather is doing (or sometimes what the neighbours are doing 😉 ).

We have a very simple coffee maker and it is totally fine. There are different coffee pads you can purchase, also from huge coffee brands like Dallmayr or Jacobs. Another option you also have is a hot chocolate version which is also very yummy and calorie reduced cause it is made with hot water.

I personally love to have a clear theme so I got a coffee picture, some coffee themed books and a coffee candle that turned out to be the best smelling candle I have ever lit. The customized go-to Starbucks cups are from etsy. You can shop them here. The black and white mugs add some contrast. Now the upper shelf contains a cute fake plant and a wooden box where all of my teas are in. The white travel mug is from Emsa and my favorite brand. Never leaks and keeps my coffee hot.

The shelving system is Ikea. The shelves are called Burhult and the holder are called Ramshult.

FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

After six years of living in this house and two attemps I have finally finished our office to the last detail. It has taken me so much time and to be honest I just don´t know why. I have started the renovation process October 19 and then the pandemic hit and my husband used it to work from home and after that we had a baby so it became a little less important for me to get it done but it never went out of my mind.

Our office hasn´t always been an office, most of the time inbetween it was more of a junk room full of boxes, stuff I needed to return, coats and spiders. I really couldn´t be more glad and I love how it turned out plus the vibrant and dark green wall color definitely is a favorite in our house.

Office Color Theme

As I already said the color theme of our office is a little darker and much modier than the rest of our house. I have two forest green walls and two bright white walls and the contrast is absolutely stunning. The dark green color looks amazing with the all white furniture. I wanted to keep it mostly in these two colors (green carpet and armchair, white furniture) and only added silver accents through decoration. 

Beverage Corner

This might be a little too fancy for a home office and maybe also totally pointless but I love it. I have seen that some offices have beverage carts and the thought of just turning around and making a cup of coffee or getting a glass of diet coke seems pretty great to me. I outsourced one of my old coffee machines into our office. The cups and sugar / milk are in the left top drawer and if you want to enjoy some soda you can choose between San Pellegrino and Diet Coke my two favorites. Not necessary but super cool.

Computer / Desk Area

This would be the normal area in an office but what is normal these days!!! The desk we have in our office is really old. I already used it as a school girl so this is a real sustainable piece I have used for more than 15 years now. Initially it was dark brown but I stained it white with a chalk color to achive this used look and I still like how it turned out. The three drawers on the left are used for all of my notebooks and computer related cables other than that they are empty. To the left of the desk is a little station that hides all the cables, those are a lot!!! And the two little side tables are also perfect to for the printer to sit on. I also have a little fashion and style inspo board with tons of outfits I have loved to stay inspired.

Reading Nook

We definitely both love to read although there hasn´t been that much time left since Emilia is here. Nevertheless both of us brought lots of books into this marriage whether it was novels or text books from my husbands work. I had to find nice storage place for them other than pilling them up behind the armchair. So I got these two billy shelves and I am really happy how this little nook turned out. I found a place to put all of our souvenirs as well and some of my decor to place inbetween the books. The forest green armchair with the soft and cozy fur complements the reading nook. I ended up getting a side table / foot rest cause first of all it looked uncomplete without and second of all this is really practically / comfortable while reading.

Storage

As far as storage goes there is plenty in the new office. From the Malm dresser with lots of drawers to the Billy shelves where I store all of our books and important documents to the drawers of the desk and the boxes of the Kallax. Many of the drawers and boxes are still empty which isn´t bad because with a growing family there will always be a need for storage. All of the furniture (except the desk) are from Ikea and linked (if still available) above.

I personally love Ikea and that all of their pieces are compatible colorwise plus they are still affordable although the prices have increased a lot since the pancdemic and availability isn´t always given. 

So that´s it. Now you have seen our updated office. Took us only six years to share with you guys.

Emilia´s Arts and Craft Corner…

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate LInks-not sponsored)

Building this art corner has been one of the best ideas I had this year. We gifted Emilia the art easel and all the supply for her second birthday cause she loves to draw and it was a huge hit. We might have a little artist on our hands 🙂 but all jokes aside I think it is perfect for her age. She likes to draw all by herself or with one of us. It definitely keeps her occupied and happy.

I got most of the stuff from amazon as well as a local store but you can get many of the things like stickers and glitter glue or stamps at your local dollar store, I am sure about that.

The art cart itself is from Ikea and stuffed with great items to draw, color and do handikraft. I got lots of boxes and cups to keep it as neat as possible and so far it has worked great. The paper divider is from amazon and perfect to store the sticker sheets, construction and glitter paper as well as the little sheets of foam rubber. I am sure we are going to do lots of crafts with all these things.

As far as I can see there are hundreds of cute things you could add to your cart. You just need to decide which theme you want to follow and also what you or your little one enjoys.
