It’s Nate Day! Buy Nate, Not That….

Happy Nate Day!  Nate Day was organized by the Moggit Girls as a day for the design blog world to celebrate the one-and-only, designer extraordinaire, Nate Berkus.  The Nate Berkus Show premiers on September 13th.  I can’t wait to set my DVR!

I love that this guy an amazingly brilliant designer with big-budget clients like, hmmm OPRAH!, but he always designs with a mixture of high and low priced items and isn’t afraid of some DIY.  This philosophy is reflected in his FABULOUS line for the Home Shopping Network (HSN).  In honor of Nate Day, I thought it only appropriate to do a little BUY THIS, NOT THAT action to celebrate this gorgeous and affordable line of items for the home.  Shall we?

Project Big Girl Room!

Project Big Girl Room is underway!  I am transforming my almost three year old’s nursery into her “big girl room.”  Because she is staying in the same room and I love the wall color, I am keeping a similar color scheme — lavender, mint green and white — but with a sassy Parisian flair!

I am trying to stay away from using all Pottery Barn Kids and Land of Nod, but I tell ya, it’s hard considering how easy, relatively inexpensive and available all of their items are!

So, here is my inspiration board:

{Windows: Audrey Chenille Panels in Lavender, Pottery Barn Kids; Print: World is Amazing, The Love Shop, Etsy; Paint: Benjamin Moore, Lavender Ice; Mirror: Ballard Designs (similar); Headboard: Blanc de Blanc Headboard, Target; Bedding: Pottery Barn Kids, Paris Toile (no longer available);  Side Tables: Flower Accent Table; Pillow: French Lady with Dog Burlap Pillow, NextDoortoHeaven, Etsy, Bed Skirt: Elizabeth Tulle Bed Skirt, Pottery Barn Kids, Sheeting: Katie Polka Dot Sheeting, Pottery Barn Kids.}

If you have been a long-time follower of the blog, you know that I love these monogrammed shades from Shades of Light: I was thinking about DIY’ing the shades with a more interesting monogram on an inexpensive shade from Target or Homegoods.

Here are some before pictures taken in February right before the big girl bed made its entree (excuse the little muchkin who is running around with the pillow from the crib!):

So, what do you think of Project Big Girl Room?  Stay tuned!

So, I have been on the prowl for attractive and functional shelving for my home office.  Look at the swoon-worthy ledge shelves ($69) that I found at Brocade Home:


As I looked around, I fell in love with just about everything B.H. had to offer.  And at relatively affordable prices too!  Like this UH-MAZE-ING black high gloss floor mirror ($699):


And check out this fun metal side table ($299):


I wish that I had a place to put this gorgeous entertainment storage console ($599) — eye candy!


I would love to give this ceramic plate set as a hostess gift or engagement present — on sale from $49 to $19!


This lovely headboard ($599 for queen) would look great in a girl’s bedroom, well okay, almost any  bedroom.


And, of course, you know me and white bedding, I HEART this amazing textured duvet cover ($249) (pictured above too).  It just went on my “wish list”!


I love these artistic chairs ($199) and one would look fabulous by itself as an accent in a bedroom, or as a set around a kitchen or casual dining room table.


This innovative and unique ruffle shelf ($499) is adorable.  Wouldn’t it look great in a powder room with pretty jars, soaps and toiletries?


Are you with me?  Have you fainted?  Is your jaw on the floor?  Do you die?

Which is your fave?
