After two years, we’re finally hitting our decorating stride and beginning to make our house feel like a home.  Next project on the list?  Our youngest son’s room, woefully ignored up until this point, except for a quick trip to IKEA for a big-kid bed when we started to worry he was going to crack his head open from jumping out of his crib. 

As I said, woefully ignored. 

I’m not quite sure where we’re going to go with his room, but I’m definitely going to integrate this super-simple (and budget!) window treatment idea:

Grommet panels hung on a shaker peg board — brilliant, right?  Easy-to-install and totally sophisticated. Love it.

Cozy Sheets for Fall

cozy sheetsI’m back! 

Since I’ve spent the past month focused on the brand new world of having a school-age kid, I thought I would dedicate my first post-hiatus post to that very kid — our sweet guy, Weston. 

Weston is all about the sensory experience of his surroundings and is a big fan of “being cozy” in particular.  In our house, jeans must be fleece-lined, socks must be super-soft and even the towels need to meet the approval of our resident King of Cozy.  So a couple of years ago as Wes was transitioning into a big-kid bed, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the holy grail of coziness as I was shopping for his bedding.  The chamois fitted sheets from Pottery Barn Kids are made from the same material as many of their baby blankets, ultra-soft but not overly warm.  Wes loves them so much that the only way to convince him to change back to cotton sheets is by hitting a heat wave…

Pottery Barn Kids Chamois Fitted Sheets are available in Twin through King in tons of colors, and through October 29, take advantage of their Warm & Cozy Event to get 20% off all chamois bedding!
