Zadie's nursery is famous


When I was pregnant, I spent hours (while I was at work) drooling over amazing nurseries on flickr and my favorite blogs. I really liked the nurseries featured on Apartment Therapy's blog for baby/kid stuff, ohdeedoh. When I finished up the space, I sent some photos to them and they liked it.

Carrie, the editor, sent me a list of excellent questions that took me three days to answer. The final result is up now. The link to the flickr set containing all the pics seems to be messed up so if you want to see them all, click here instead.

I really liked how she asked stuff like, "How did you incorporate so many items from Ikea without having the nursery look like an Ikea showroom?" That was really hard to answer. I don't know how good ideas come to me. I just know what I like and I'm always surprised when something turns out well.

That's great. I think the dot rugs make the room look bigger.

I just wish I'd not been such a slacker, so my letter would be up on the wall! Ah, maybe one day.

Hey, can you tell me what color blue that is? I'm thinking about blues for my bedroom.

Today's my mom's birthday...I'm going home, but I'll try to give you a call this weekend. I'll be in Motown until Wednesday. I figured I'd just post that here instead of writing a separate email argh...

Thanks! I loved working on the space. The crib is full of clothes right now because we are inbetween sizes and seasons. I need to take care of that today.

Sandi, I haven't even made my Yeti Y yet!
