Francis Xavier’s blue and yellow nursery.

It’s high-time I think that I showed you the lil man’s nursery.

I went with my wedding colors of yellow and blue. Lucky for me, our surprise ended up being a boy because in the end it was pretty masculine! Mother’s intuition?

The rocking chair and ottoman, which I adore, are Olli Ella purchased from Tiny Footprints. It is ridiculously comfortable and the micro-suede wipes clean really easily.

The crib and the changing table are from Dwell Studio. The linens are from Restoration Hardware.

And these!! My dear friend Kim handpainted these profiles. Sweetest shower gift ever. And don’t you love the ‘mommy loves you’ and ‘daddy loves you’ messages?

The wallpaper is one of my favorite parts of the nursery. It’s Clarke & Clarke’s Globetrotters. My mom and I made these paper stars to hang above the crib… I’ll have to show you how to make them in a separate post, but Francis does really like to look at him. The rug I custom ordered through Glory Rays in Wanchai (

The wallpaper showcases so many places that are important to us! The Golden Gate Bridge of my hometown of San Francisco and where we met, the coliseum in Rome where we honeymooned, the Great Wall of China is Francis’s birthplace and home, Neuschwanstein is the most romantic place the Mr. and I have been together, and the Empire State Building gives a little love to the Big Apple where we’ve spent so much time working and hanging out with great friends.

I used little yogurt cups to organize all of Francis’s accessories.

The sheep mobile is from Bla Bla Kids. I wish I could say I knit it myself… maybe someday!

Isn’t he a little cutie?

The little elephant rocking horse is by Elmer and I purchased it on One Kings Lane. It was actually the first thing I bought for the little one!

The baskets are from Attic Lifestyle. We were so lucky to be given so many fun gifts on display on this bookshelf that I’ve actually had since I was in junior high if you can believe it. It’s lean profile is perfect. It’s nice to have a little iPod speaker in here for lullabies. A ¬†few other detail shots for you…

I feel so thankful to have such a happy place for us to hang out together!

  9. As a food, coconut is tasty, sweet, & highly nutritious.

    Besides chocolate, you may also effortlessly put coconut
    oil to just about any of your dishes. However, this is slowly changing
    especially when the benefits of this natural oil is more widely seen
    in a lot of individuals using it.

  10. However, this only removes the microbial acid guard from the
    sebum and makes the skin more likely to get infected, causing the situation to
    worsen. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that
    support the loss of extra weight. Organic virgin coconut oil is higher quality and tends to be a little more expensive.

  11. Showing enthusiasm, finding common ground with decision makers, leaving them with a quotable quote and a third party endorsement as you ask for what you want, and telling them how you will make things better and easier, will get you that much closer to your goal.
