A Serene Pink for Fall
Josh and I are having our second in a matter of weeks and we live in a very small space! When India was born, I shared how we created her room within ours (we have since added a wall, so she has her own). This time we plan on using a very tiny nook, like so many New Yorkers that have to find a closet or postage stamp sized space, for Baby’s room. Here are some ideas of how to make a small space still feel like a special nursery. xo, Lizzy
1. Art Print - Add color to the walls, no matter how small the space !
2. RBW Mori Gourd - Use lighting with glass or transparent shade to maximize your lighting (especially if there are no windows)
3. Small Weathered Wall Book Rack - Utilize WALLS as much as possible for storage ! These are great for having baby's 10 favorite bedtime books at hand.
5. Stokke Home Changer - no room for a changing table ? This changer is great for the early days over the crib to have it all in one place, and eventually it works perfectly on top of a dresser.
6. Inverse Seaweed | Crib Sheet | Bay Blue - any of our sheets are great depending on your aesthetic. I love this pale blue for a baby boy in a small space.
7. Bolga Hamper Basket Set - Not only great for dirty clothes, but great toy organizers ! Never enough baskets.
8. Target Storage - With no large dresser top, need extra room for diapers, wipes, creams, nail clippers, and thermometers ? slide these low baskets under the crib for a quick grab that's tidy and out of site.
9. Malta Woven Wool Rug - Keep the space bright with a light rug.
10. Quax Wardrobe Small, beautiful storage that goes up for maximum use.
11. Eames Rocker - If you have the space for some sort of seating, but not a full upholstered rocker, try something like this with a smaller footprint.
12. Olliela Pollie Shelf - I already have one of these in India’s tiny room and I love it. Stuffed animals on top, dresses (her only hang space !) on the shelf.
13. Shaker Peg Rack - Never enough hooks either ! Winter coats, hooded sweaters, hangers. There is always more to hang, and again - using up wall space with very limited depth will help you tremendously.

From top left:
Lewis Stingray Burp Cloths: Wrapped around a wine bottle. There are two burp cloths in the set. Wrap the bottle in one and use the other to tie around the bottle neck. Your host can use them as napkins or kitchen towels like we do!
Sunshine Grand Plate: Topped with homemade cookies - a beautiful terracotta plate your host can use equally for lunch or serving cheese + crackers.
Salad Servers - simple, elevated.
Unfiltered Greek Olive Oil Set: We love the packaging plus everyday-use-factor of these pantry staples.
Fishy Soap + Hand Towels: This soap is surprisingly big, which adds to its appeal. Can't go wrong with hand towels, especially in classic navy plaid.
Ash + Stoneware Pitcher: We're big fans of pitchers that can sit pretty on a shelf, be used for kids or adult beverages and elevate backyard-picked flowers
Simple Fare Cookbook + Lewis Tote: We love these cookbooks (inside + out) from our friend Karen Mordechai. Our Parsnip Tote makes a perfect package.
Lewis Throw Quilt: For curling up on the couch + fort making.
Zip Pouch Set + Saipua Soap: We've given countless zip pouch sets as gifts, and the liner is especially helpful for holding potentially messy products like sunscreen. We love a great smelling gift, and this soap is incredible.
Something for Kids:
Gold Duct Tape + Construction Paper: Keep it simple, but shiny!, and let them get busy.
Lewis Stingray Pajamas: We're biased, but we think pajamas are a great gift.
Actual Size: A book they'll look through and talk about over + over.
Bead Kit: One of our favorite activities while taking a break from the sun - to do solo or with friends.
