I love nurseries!

If kids weren't so much work I'd have many just so I could decorate their rooms. Because once they turn 4 and 6 they just want to hang their artwork all over with lots and lots of scotch tape and then color on the nicely painted walls so it doesn't stay as cute as the little baby room they once had.  This room is just beautiful. My first son had the very serene baby blue room with all white furniture and by the time he was almost 2 I felt it was too babyish and we switched it up a little. That's why I now love rooms that can grow with kids and this is one of them. I love the striped walls! .

Entry organization

I've battled with entry organization in my house since we moved in. We enter through our basement so everything is stored downstairs next to central vac and electric box. Not a pretty site but no way to hide it. Then I have one child who comes home on the bus and enters through the front door and the little one comes home with me and enters through basement door. So I've learned to accept the fact that I will always have a coat and school bag hanging upstairs. But I wanted a place to be organized when we walked in. So I was a little bored. Searched my attic and found shelves, hooks and finally put up my calendar I made last summer!!!
