Crib Infatuation

I think that I may be in love. As we await our referral for twins I have been in super search mode for suitable sleeping arrangements for them. We are in the early stages of transitioning homes and our current abode, although relatively spacious, is slowing becoming cramped as we add to the family. With that said, space is limited and these Alma Mini cribs seem too good to be true! Not only are they significantly smaller than a standard-sized crib, but they also fold for storage when not in use - All without compromising sturdiness or style! Not to mention that they are uber cool to look at with their sleek lines and bold yet refined color choices. Now it's time to read reviews and do some measuring!

I LOVE black and white tile. It's simplistic and understated elegance always manages to  grasp my attention without refrain. I imagine a tiled laundry/mud room in one of the above mentioned patterns or in a combination I have yet to envision.

Nantucket Inspiration

Change the red to a gray as seen above and add a more modern exterior stone
Contrast the white stair with black rail and dark wood floors
