Hello! I'm Suzannah, a serious DIYer. Follow along with my DIY fixer upper house renovations, sewing and crafty projects, real food recipes, and de-stressing goals.
I co-host the Your Home Story podcast and believe you can love your home just the way it is, AND have the power to design and make big changes to make it better.
I'm also the author of DIY Wardrobe Makeovers!
Mom to Otto born April 2018 and Lucy born August 2020!

Nursery design--and making it really functional!

We moved twice while I was pregnant with Otto, the last time into a one-bedroom apartment, and then into our house when he was 3 months old... so I wasn't able to decorate a nursery for him until then (and it's still not "finished"). But nursery design can be so fun and cute--but baby rooms also have to be super functional. THAT I am a pro at by now!!

This week on the Your Home Story podcast, Ashley and I talk allllll about style plus function for nurseries. We cover all the essential items you need in the room, ways to add your personal design touches (without going too trendy and doing something you'll be tired of soon), some favorite pieces, and some inspirational baby rooms. We also talk about how to design a nursery that’s perfect for baby but still fits within your home!

Resources and inspirations:
  1. Best picture I have so far of Otto's nursery/progress
  2. My nursery pinboard
  3. My ultimate glider/rocking chair
  4. My affordable rocking chair research blog post and how we like it/review
  5. Baby clothing divider tags
  6. Blue light-free nighlight
  7. Some inspiraation rooms we talked about:
    1. @carpendaughter’s playful nursery
    2. @price_landing’s elegant, muted nursery (and a recent update here)
    3. DIY Playbook’s larger space with great nursery to grow into
    4. Cassie Bustamante’s wallpapered nursery closet and simple built-in shelves
Here's a favorite very elegant nursery by @price_landing on Instagram(I mean, make the bed bigger and I would love this room for myself!)
