Our "Madam Butterfly" Nursery

Another Hudson Baby Design Nursery.
We haven't gotten to go super girlie in a while, so this was really fun! We had a wonderful client in Washington Park who was not afraid of color, or of having some fun! This  old house has plaster walls and high ceilings, so we wrapped the Schumacher wallpaper down around the walls and added some midnight blue trim to break it up a bit before our soft Benjamin Moore yellow wall color.
 The bedding is all custom and we added some Lulu DK fabric to the bottom for some more butterfly whimsy. This is one lucky baby girl. These sheets and ties are all made out of minky fabrics, so they have a very soft hand. The bumper is a grey Greek key pattern . Don't worry safety sam's, the sconces have removeable crystals...when and if she is ever able to reach them (she shouldn't be able to) they can be taken off).
 The changing table, oh the changing table. It came from our friends at Posh Tots and is GORGEOUS!! The photos do not do it justice. The inside of the drawers are ORANGE!!!! It is stunning in person.
Some custom window treatments with some more LuLu, some 3D butterflies on the walls, some pops of color complements of Crate and Barrel on the floor and here you have a very fun nursery for a very fun family.
Happy Friday!

Mom Advice from an Old Friend

 I Awoke this morning with a heavy heart like many Americans thinking about the lives lost in Boston yesterday. When the news flashed the picture of the sweet little eight year old boy who was senselessly killed in the bombing, my four year old asked why his picture was on the screen before I had a chance to change the channel.... How can we as parents shelter our children from the constant barrage of scary news that is everywhere? I saw this post today and thought I would share it. Today is a mom post. Not a design post.
Hug your loved ones and little ones tight tonight.
Love this wisdom. Look for the helpers.

Spring Break...The Hanlons Head to Xpu Ha

Hello Friends, Brittany here for a change! While Holly is on spring break, I thought I would switch things up and share some pics from our family spring break to beautiful Xpu Ha beach in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. As you can imagine, traveling with three little boys under 3 is exhausting!!!!, but well worth it once we got there. See our smiles :)

Our twins actually turned 2 while we were there and we had a really cute party complete with a cars pinata and cake complements of the wonderful house staff.
I hope to be adding some more personal and family posts to the blog in the coming weeks in addition to the wonderful design posts that Holly has been contributing.
Have a great spring break!
