The Nursery Diaries Part Two: Commitment Issues

There were a few things I knew I wanted for sure in the nursery.  The one I felt strongest about:  white walls.  For those who know me well, I have a bit of a color commitment issue.  Especially when it comes to committing to a wall color.  As much as I would love to paint the walls a rich navy, I worry about how long it will be before I am disappointed they aren't white.  Plus the nursery will be our smallest bedroom and needs all the light it can get.  As with the other rooms in my house, I decided that I would bring in pops of color through the accessories and artwork.

Despite my issues, there are some great navy walls out there for inspiration:

The Look for Less Giveaway: Theodora & Callum Scarves

Last week we told you about how much we love the Theodora & Callum line.  Their scarves come in such great prints and are an amazing scale so they can be used as scarves, shawls, pareos, skirts, strapless dresses, beach blankets - the possibilities are limitless! 

Despite the versatility of these scarves, sometimes it can be hard to justify that $185 price tag.  So, we were thrilled to see Forever 21 come out with some great printed scarves that remind us very much of Theodora & Callum! They are sheer and very lightweight, and great for accessorizing a simple tank top and pair of jeans.

The Look for Less!

Local Haunts: Palm Beach Regency

I suppose it wouldn't be right to keep this amazing source all to ourselves!
We love Palm Beach Regency!!

Their name says its all! It's the best resource to find any and all things that exude old Palm Beach! Faux Bamboo, Lucite, Chinoiserie, Chippendale, Hollywood Regency, Rattan, etc, etc, etc!
They are primarily web based but have a great local warehouse that is a complete treasure chest of goodies!
Our latest trip was such a treat! Not only was it a total feast for our eyes but the prices are great and the owners, Dawn and Patricia, are SO lovely!  The whole experience was so much fun!

Of course we couldn't leave without taking home some treasures for ourselves!

This Vintage Gilded Banana Leaf Chandelier will look perfect in my dining room! It's just the right touch of old Palm Beach! Can't wait to hang it!

Lauren snagged a pair of these Carved Regency Mirrors for such a steal!
They look amazing flanking her headboard! The only way to make them more perfect is a fresh new lacquer! Until then, they still look great!

How incredible do the vintage x benches look in Lauren's entry?! Perfect fit and they don't even need to be reupholstered! LOVE!

I'm already eagerly anticipating our next visit! Can't wait!
Check out their site and if you speak to Dawn or Patricia, tell them the Luxe Girls say Hi!
