little things : orin’s space

when I was 17 weeks pregnant with Orin, I began sleeping in our guest room. once the bump started getting bigger, I was just plain uncomfortable sharing the queen sized bed with Levi. I was using three or four pillows for support and that just didn’t work. plus, we knew this would be the baby’s space once he arrived and I already planned on spending his first few months by his side.

I had many visions of how this space would come together. since this is a shared space, we didn’t want too many baby focused things but rather a simple coordinated look. ultimately the styling revolved around a beautiful vintage kantha blanket I found and it went from there. I just love how bright this space is! indigo blue is one of my very favorite colors and I had fun collecting things to go in the room.

Orin will eventually sleep in his crib but for now he’s sleeping in the moses basket, which was first Wolf’s! {side note – for those of you with more than one kiddo, how fun is it to see hand-me-downs used by your second child?} when he’s ready for his crib, we’ll probably move a twin sized bed into this tiny room so that it’s not jam packed. I hunted and hunted for a simple mobile but didn’t find anything that I liked, or could afford, so I decided to make my own inspired by one I’d found on Pinterest. it was super easy to make and lots of fun to put together. Wolf even helped!

we picked out the Babyletto changing table from Diapers.com since it converts to a dresser once you no longer need the changing portion. the natural wood works so well with the moses basket and I love it’s semi mid-century look. I can see it being in Orin’s room for awhile! the flokati rug is also from Serena & Lily. it’s super soft and cozy and just perfect for playtime.

now that the weather is getting cooler, we’ve been spending a lot of time snuggling in warm knits and under cozy blankets. I got this amazing ace & jig duster from the folks at Accompany. it’s simply perfect for lazy mornings.
