A KID LIVES HERE

our space is always evolving, i'm always moving this here and that there, trying to get it just right. as of late, i am loving the vibe our home is giving off. i love that at the end of the day when we're relaxing on the couch i look over and there's a tricycle sitting next to our record collection. i love incorporating aurora's art work onto our walls. i love that little dinosaurs are hidden all over the house - which i totally consider part of the ambience. i love how there are hints through out the space that scream a child lives here.

^^ night time scenes ^^


chris and i are pretty adamant about living in a somewhat "adult space." the amount of stuff that aurora has (books, stuffed animals, tricycle, etc) could easily eat our small space alive. we try to keep some order by utilizing lots of bins and baskets and following the general rule that if it doesn't have a home (in a bin.basket/drawer/etc) then it's got to exit the building - which can be tough because every little thing seems to hold so much sentiment. but at the end of the day 2 adults live here too and we don't want to feel like we live in a play room.
