Rexy’s Temporary Bedroom


I’ve been busy prepping Harper & Rex’s new shared bedroom all week. After 3 days of painting and 3 coats of paint that still do not cover I’ve decided I’ll NEVER use this paint again! The carpet is gone & I am anxious to start on the floors.

These projects always take me way longer than I anticipate. I am the SLOWEST DIY-er you’ve ever met! So, I’ve set up a temporary space for Rex to sleep until the room is finished. I tried to give it some character & color.. really wanted to make it cozy for him. His fave color is GREEN so that is what I went with.

Yesterday I posted his little nook on Instagram & there was a lot of great feedback so I wanted to share the sources from the photo…



1. BlaBla Panda Doll
2. White/Black Small Polka Dot Sheet Set, by Ralph Lauren (I purchased this sheet set over a year ago on clearance from TJ Maxx)
3. Little Auggie Ocean Blue Pillow Case
4. Eco Forest Baby Blanket
5. Make Your Own Banner Set, Black
6. Gold Mushroom Lamp by HEICO (if you are in the US you can purchase these at Sunday in Color)
7. Oh Deer Silhouette Print (I framed the print in a large/ornate frame from Home Goods. It was really ugly so I spray painted it white.)
8. Pillow with Initial and Single Border 15″ x 15″ (one of his Christmas gifts last year)
9. Mongolian Lamb Pillow Cover– Stone White (16″ Sq.)
10. White Milk crates (we use these to store toys, & I stacked 2 of them for his temporary night stand)

*Green/black/blue rug on the floor is from an Indian Reservation.
** Rex also has a MYSA RÖNN Twin Feather Down Comforter & DVALA Twin Duvet cover on his bed. (both incredibly inexpensive from IKEA!)

Boden: Great British Style

Hey there, Irene from designstiles again.

I was looking for a gift for our friend’s baby when I stumbled on this site, Boden. Holy heavens, their baby clothes is ridiculously cute. There wasn’t a single thing I didn’t want to purchase. I wanted one of everything for our little boy and even girl stuff just to have on hand when it’s time to gift.

Their coats are particularly adorable and perfect for the Fall and Winter season.

I rounded up my favorite coats, knitwear and hats just in time to bundle up your wee ones.


More cute clothes here.

Happy Wednesday!

Bedroom DEMO!


I started working on Harper & Rex’s bedroom redo on Monday. (I am a month & a half late on this project but more motivated than ever to get it going!) So far we’ve torn out the carpet/pads and started painting. The carpet removal was supposed to be a quick job but I had no idea that it would take so long to get the carpet grippers out of the concrete. They were nailed into the concrete and I literally had to pry them out with a screw driver and hammer. IT WAS TOUGH to say the least. It seems that there are always surprises when you decide to DIY it!

Anyway, you can keep up with the bedroom redo updates on INSTAGRAM: spearmintbaby
