Annabelle's non-pink bird-themed bedroom

When it came to decorating my daughter's bedroom, I knew pink and purple were definitely out! Instead, I opted for "grown-up" prints in fun colors, and there is a bit of a bird motif throughout. My ultra handy husband did all the trim work himself!

My daughter's awesome '70s-inspired nursery

We moved into our rental on our first anniversary and when I was in my third trimester of pregnancy with my daughter Logan. I was so excited to get started on her nursery — I knew it was going to be bright and vibrant. I had made some pillow cases for my former Etsy store and paired them with a quilt that was made for my husband and I as a wedding gift.

My 5 ideas for non-baby themed nurseries

My husband and I are only just beginning to talk about having a baby, but like the overeager person I am I've already been looking at different baby room inspiration online. Over the past few weeks I have looked at all the available store themes and come to one conclusion: they are not us. Baby animals, over-powering geometric patterns, PINK…. just because it's for a baby's room doesn't mean it has to be infantile!

Let's get real: I decorated my kid's room for myself

My almost four-year-old recently achieved a huge milestone: he finally has his own room. When I asked him what color he wanted his room to be, he said black (it's his favorite). When I asked what he wanted on the walls, he said black things. When I asked if he still wanted his thrifted Harry Potter blanket, he said ok, but he wanted black everything else. I politely and sweetly smiled at him, told him there was no way my preschooler was going to have an all-black room.
