{home tour: upstairs}

Let's begin with our room which is still a work in progress.  I just bought window treatments for this space for $4.50 a piece recently at Lowe's and I think they are perfect! My hubby has been so busy with projects around here, I almost feel bad asking him to do anything else, but he also wanted to get something up on the bedroom windows. 

I also plan to hang 3 of my favorite Target frames {which I already have & are in the bottom left of the top photo} above this bed with black and white pictures of the kiddos sleeping in them. Already framed just need to be hung .

This is a very calming and peaceful space and we plan to keep it that way, by not adding many knick knacks.  I love the simplicity of our bedroom.





This is the Ikea Hemnes dresser, & an Ikea Lack shelf that the box is sitting on.  


These are our nightstands. It is also Ikea Hemnes to match the dresser.  I'm normally not crazy about matchy matchy but I love the simplicity of these.  They are very well built too! Thanks Ikea {and my husband....}


My favorite part of the nightstand? This little shelf that's the perfect size for a little diaper changing station, because the kids love to hang out in our room. And a space so that my earrings/necklace/chapstick will not get lost in the mix! Plus how cute is the pattern on the bottom of the drawers? 



Our bathroom is pretty basic, but I love the layout.



We love having a jacuzzi tub, a lot of people say they don't use theirs, but we have quite a bit!  Landon LOVES IT!


To the left is jacuzzi, right is the vanity, straight ahead is our closet, next to that on the right is a toilet and in front of that on the left is our shower. 


Next stop - and in really no particular order, is the playroom.

Obsessed.  

If you ever have the chance to have a playroom, do it! It is totally baby proofed up here, and the room is right at the top of the stairs, I have no worries leaving Landon up here by himself, if we are downstairs.  There is nothing that he can get hurt on.  We do have a TV in this room as well, and the dresser is attached to the wall. 


I am in love with the Ribba photo shelves from Ikea, I got these same ones for Harper Kate's room and Landon's books are in a basket next to his bed. We love books!


Moving onto Landon's room










And lastly upstairs, Harper Kate's room.  












We also have a bathroom in the hallway upstairs, but I haven't gotten around to decorating that room, and we really only do Landon & Harpers bathtime in there sometimes. Most of the time we do it in our jacuzzi tub in our bathroom with the both of them.

  2. Oh my goodness, these rooms belong in a magazine! Absolutely gorgeous!!! I'm all about simplicity as well, and we don't have too many knickknacks in our house. (Less to dust...). ;)

  4. PLEASE don't let this one ignorant person stop you from blogging. I love it. I also follow you on Instagram. I love your style and decor style. It's weak little people that have to put down people to seem big. I'm anonymous because I don't have an google account.

    1. I should add that I was hoping for gray and yours looks gray that's why I was curious!

    2. It was listed as slate, but to me it also looks blue.... :\

    3. I have been going back and forth on this headboard and can not decide on a color. I like slate the best on the website but keep reading it looks more blue. Your headboard does look gray so I was hoping the reviews were wrong. What paint color is on your walls? Just wondering if that helps with making it look more gray in pictures. Thanks!

    4. Hi Kelly! It definetly looks more blue in person than it does on the website. And even in my pic for some reason I see a touch of blue. The color on our walls is Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.

    5. Thanks for letting me know! I def returned it as much of a pain as that was. The headboard is so sturdy and good for the price when on sale but I personally could not get over the blue!!

    6. Thanks for responding Kailey. I appreciate your feedback. Our walls are Revere Pewter and it is so hard to know what the headboard would look like against that color. I am in the last month of pregnancy, in full nesting mode, and can not make any sort of decisions:).

  7. I've seen the IKEA ledges as bookshelves on a lot of blogs. I agree it's a cute idea, but the early childhood educator in me is so bothered by the books being so out of reach of the kids! Books should be easily accessible for the children to be able to freely look at them as they please.

    Obviously paperbacks need to be out reach to avoid rips, but board books are sturdy and made for kids to love on. Even chewing on books is learning for babies!

    Love your headboard, I have my eye on one similar.

  8. If you'll note, we have a basket of books and also books on my sons nightstand. He has access at any time to about 40 books. When he's in his playroom he actually climbs up and pulls all the books down. My daughter who is 2 months ls gets read to every night and so does my son. My daughter does not have easy access to books at this point but she is immobile. When she can move we will also put a basket in her room.

    1. The one that really confuses me is the floor to ceiling rain gutter ones. That's just a ladder waiting to be scaled ;)

    2. Bah! Thanks so much! Are your sons actual dots or are they the ones that look like little plus signs? Ps. Where did you find the two tone baskets (white and natural)?

    3. The baskets are also from Target! I haven't seen them there and bought them last year. The sheets are little plus signs. They are so cute!

  17. Hi! Did you get the ikea dresser in white or white stain? From pictures on the website, the white seems more creamy, or yellow...trying to decide which in to get for our nursery!
