before & after: lauren’s nursery

by Grace Bonney

as i edge closer to 30 and my biological clock starts to tick at a deafening volume (poor ac has to listen to me “ooh” every time a cute baby comes on tv these days. sorry, ac) i find myself drawn more and more to nursery makeovers. this beautiful makeover comes from lauren at with two cats. lauren is a mom-to-be and she recently, with the help of her family, completed a nursery makeover for her impending bundle of joy, violet. i love the calm, cool colors lauren used and her use of (my favorite accent color ever) orange to bring a little extra brightness to the room. you can read more about the makeover right here, or check out my favorite 10 photos from the project above and after the jump below. thanks, lauren!
