I’ll never forget the moment I found out I was pregnant with my Benjamin [aka Baby Bear]. I had been praying for another, longing so deeply for another child. Another precious blessing. A sibling for our oldest. I anxiously waited, counting down the days until I could finally take a test. I remember waking up at 4:00 in the morning on October 30th [the day I could officially test] I had to go to the bathroom so I figured what better time, and sure enough there it was a little plus sign. I was ecstatic and terrified all at once. Another baby, exactly what I’d been praying for, but 2 children, I felt like I was only just getting the hang of being a Mama to one. I remember laying in bed butterflies in my belly from the excitement. Oh how I loved him from that very moment.
Benjamin is such a boys boy, he’s rough and tumble, but still tender and sweet. A Mama’s boy through and through. He’s my little partner in crime. He’s been my shadow from day one, and you’ll never hear me complain about it. He’s only three so he doesn’t have huge opinions yet, at least not regarding his room decor, haha. I wanted to stay simple in here so that things could easily be added in down the road. No specific theme just little boy sweetness. Plus if I can ever get around to convincing my husband about another baby this will end up being the nursery so simple seemed to be the best idea.
For me, decorating and putting together spaces in our home is just one way I express love towards my people. Carefully and intentionally creating a room and home where we can find comfort, refuge, security. I believe its important to fill our homes with things we believe to be beautiful but still useful. So that each item has purpose. I try to practice this in all areas of our home.
Originally I was going to paint the room [walls and trim] the same color as Braedan’s room. You can read all about that [here]. But, in the end I decided to just do the same wall color with a different trim color. I’ve had a sample from Benjamin Moore for like 3 years called Revere Pewter, it’s basically the perfect greige tone, ever. So I had Sherwin Williams color match it for me because I wouldn’t have had enough from the sample. I love the color so much I think the rest of the house will be getting the same for the trim. I figure when you love something you may as well just run with it!
