One room down...

The only room I consider fully unpacked is the baby's, which doubles as a guest room.

It was a pleasure to put together her hand-me-down crib, since she's been camping in the Pack 'N' Play since birth.

I used our old guest bed with its vintage pillows and spread; it pairs well with the baby's thrift store linens, simple colors and garden toile.

A dainty bamboo table holds a bird lamp. In lieu of a changing table, I folded a butter yellow coverlet across the foot of the bed.

I was finally able to hang this hollyhock watercolor over her crib and three dainty wildflower prints between the closets. I adore the glass doorknobs!


Eventually I'll find more treasures to soften the room, blinds and fabric for the windows. For now, I'm glad one room is done!

It looks like you are well on your way to being settled in! Everything looks lovely. It took me a year to get totally settled in after I last move. Then I have only moved 3 times in 30 years of marriage. I've been bitten by the fall fix up bug and have been recovering furniture. I've got pics up on my blog if you are interested.

Beautiful room!

I think using a hand-me-down crib is so special ... we have used my crib for me, my sister, her two kids (at my mom's house -- she did daycare for them), and now my two. I plan to pass it down to my kids for when they have litte ones ...

Just lovely! Your blog & the pictures of your home have been a real inspiration to me to "pare down." There is beauty in simplicity.
