Reader Design: Nancy's Love-Filled Nursery

I am so excited to return to our "new normal" Spaces programming - sharing a new amazing space with all of you style mutts each Friday! 

Next, we're off to Nancy's Love-Filled Nursery in Charlotte, NC. Nancy's mom, Elise, is a first-time mama who has created the most LOVELY space for her little girl. Brace yourselves: you're about to see a lot of white, pink, and gold - a combination which seriously knocks it out of the park!

From Elise: 

When my husband walked into the nursery for the first time after my mom and I worked our magic, he said, “It’s so white in here!” That was music to my ears. I love white!

Elise methodically planned every detail of this nursery prior the arrival of her daughter - and boy, can you tell! It's no wonder that when she was trying to choose which room in her home to feature with us, she went with this space. 

I so enjoyed choosing Nancy’s crib bedding. I stayed in the white color scheme but mixed patterns: polka dots, hearts, and herringbone. The abstract art hanging above Nancy’s crib is my favorite element of the room. One of my best friends painted it based on two elements: my nursery inspiration board and 1 Peter 1:6-7.

In true StyleMutt fashion, Elise also did some DIY work of her on the dresser. She snagged it for $20 and just repainted and added new knobs. And that was a great call. You don't need to meticulously strip and restore your secondhand finds in order to make them worthwhile. In my first apartment, I got a free Craigslist coffee table and painted it a bright turquoise - that wasn't exactly "on trend," but it was practical and easy to swap for another color when I needed a change! 


Another thing Elise nailed: the layered rug trend. Can you imagine waking up, rolling out of bed, and immediately hitting that shag rug with your feet?! What a way to start your day. I don't know about you guys, but I for one am very jealous of Nancy.

Thank you, Nancy and Elise, for sharing this beautiful home with us! Follow Nancy and Elise along at Her Heart and Home and on Instagram

Reader Design: Suzi's Shiplapped Farmhouse

It's a rainy fall day as I write this and the weather is making me want to curl up with something cozy.  It's a good thing it's Friday because we have a cozy #stylemuttspaces farmhouse tour to share!  Suzi is from Whyalla, South Australia and just LOVES the charming farm look.

From Suzi:

I think my decorating style is farmhouse/ vintage , white is a favourite colour of mine , but I’m also drawn to soft hints of green and blue, this farmhouse style has come from reading Country Home magazine when it was in publication and now my favourite magazine is Country Living, and of course lots of inspiration from Instagram.  I have a slight obsession with shiplap at the moment and want to have it in every room, it gives such a farmhouse feel, and changes a room in an instant.
This is my mantel in my living room , I love my chippy old window that I managed to score from a house that was being demolished across the road from me.
My kitchen is a constant work in progress, we are doing it all ourselves, so it takes time, but I love how its evolving.
My family room is a great space for our family, plenty of room for us all, and it has a very relaxed feel.
We moved our big dining table into our family room, and put in a round table, I love the warmth of the wood.
I’m trying to keep things a little more simple in my rooms, so that pieces shine.

Thank you Suzi for sharing your serene space with us on StyleMutt Home.  Follow Suzi @darbystar on instagram for more farmhouse feels!
