THROWBACK: featured on apartment therapy & design*sponge

As I work on the RV and get excited to see it come together, I've been thinking back on past decorating project and it brought me back to Bubs' nursery which I LOVED and even though his room has changed a few times since then, his nursery, midnight sky themed, still holds a very special place in my heart! Since I don't have any new RV updates to show you right now I thought I'd share his original nursery. The funny thing is someone snarky online told me his nursery didn't have enough color. And recently I shared a photo of our RV progress in a group for RV interiors and someone snarked about how I painted his brightly colored toys a more subtle shade. HA! I guess old habits die hard. And he turned out just fine without a billion chaotic colors in his face. I totally ranted in this old post that I dug out of my archives a little bit about it that was originally posted almost exactly 4 years ago. CRAZY! Enjoy... 


As if seeing my words on Design*Sponge earlier this week wasn't cool enough, Apartment Therapy loved Cadence's nursery and so sweetly shared it online this week. Other than a snarky commenter going on about how I didn't put enough color or shapes in it for his development (whatevs) people seemed to really like it. Also, can I go on an anti-mommy-craziness tangent for a second and just say that children throughout the history of the world, and still in most countries less spoiled than our own, don't have fancy nurseries full of brightly painted colors and baby einstein videos and scientific toys for their dendritic development and they all have turned out just fine. Moms have enough stuff to worry about and enough to take care of already without other women coming up with more things that they are doing wrong according to nothing. Can't we just support each other without always having to tell someone where they are coming up short? Guess what snarky dendritic development lady? Cadence sleeps on his belly too. And he's formula fed. And women in Cambodia let their babies play with goats. And somehow everyone survives. There's not one right way. *steps off soapbox*

Anyways.... Bubs' room has so much meaning and thought put into each detail that it makes me immediately happy whenever I'm in there. It's calming. It's his favorite room too and he instantly mellowed when we walked into it. He loved to look at the prints on the big blue wall and at the little moon mobile that I made.

I'm so honored that Apartment Therapy chose to share it and I hope it inspires other moms to be to think outside the box with the design of their nurseries and make them special and significant. Thanks AT!
