Exciting New Press!

I’m so excited to finally get to share with you the photo-shoot/ styling job that was the subject of this post. Boston Magazine Home asked me to style a high and low version of a nursery.  As you can tell from my breakdown of the shoot, it was a lot more work than I expected.  But well worth it when I get to open the pages of the magazine (and even get a teaser on the cover) and see the final result!

Some images I shot during the shoot- you can see the details better than my crappy scans! The images should be on their website soon as well!

    wow! thanks for posting this, as “boston home” isn’t readily available here in the west.
    both rooms are stunning and super fun!
    i love high/low photo shoots…and yours was really informative and creative.

  5. I love these nurseries! Congrats, Erin! xo

  6. Erin, it looks amazing both ways! You are so talented, my friend! xo

  7. Shawna says:

    Both are so, so adorable! Congrats!

  8. You know…I think I actually like the “low” version a bit more. Go figure!

  9. Hillary says:

    Love it! And I too think I’m drawn to the budget-sensitive version!

  10. Lovely! They both look great, congratulations!

  11. Barchbo says:

    Love them both – congrats on a fabulous job well-done!

    I JUST finished our nursery this weekend (I mean, I still have 10 whole days until he’s due…plenty of time!) and am so glad to see the Space Baby crib bedding from Target is what you chose to feature – that’s what we have, too! We went a different direction with the rug, but your design has me feeling good about my choices! I am going to get some throw pillows this weekend for our chair – maybe a roll pillow, too. Thanks for the inspiration, and again – kudos!

    Congratulations – great job! I have to say I like the less expensive version the best!!!

  14. Natalie says:

    Great work and great fun.

  15. You did a fantastic job! I actually like the inexpensive version better than the deep-pockets one :-)

  16. quintessence says:

    Very exciting – congratulations. Always thrilling to see your name in print. And I love that you got to add your fun silhouette to the room.

  17. Karin says:

    Wow, so awesome! And happy Anniversary! :)

  18. designstiles says:

    I have a serious weakness for nurseries. Uh, I hope that doesn’t mean I’m ready to procreate. Anyway, great job. Love, love, love them both.

  19. Julie says:

    Love it, Erin! Kudos!

  20. I love both nurseries and you made such a creative nursery for $4,000. Great job.

  21. Oooo! I want one for the diplo-baby!

  22. Cecilia says:

    You’re such a talent. I can’t wait to see what you think of our nursery when it is done. xoxo

  23. Kerri@TresChiclifestyle says:

    Erin – Love love love the rooms (and the less expensive looks AS expensive – so wonderful!) That my friend is not smoke and mirrors :)…….Kerri

    Congratulations on the press. But the idea that one of those nurseries is “for the rest of us” is a load of turds. I’m having twins, their room is accessorized and furnished to the hilt – 2 cribs, 2 chairs, fully renovated closet, window treatments, art, etc. and I didn’t come close to $4000. Most people would call a $4K nursery the one for “deep pockets”. But I’m assuming it’s not your goal as a designer to decorate for the masses anyway? Regardless, congrats on the awesome feature!

  25. Mary says:

    Hmm. Is it weird that I like the less expensive version better?! Great job and congrats on the press!!!

  26. Congrats! Agreed, I love both rooms but the budget is my fave! Please tell, where the framed silouhette w? monogram is from? Love!

  27. Sara Jane says:

    Love it! They’re both beautiful!

  28. A Brit Greek says:

    Wow, congrats on this feature!! They’re both amazing, but there are def some bits and pieces i prefer in the recessionista version!


  29. I love them both! Excellent job. It makes me want to redo my baby nursery… but my little Gray is not so baby any more. :(

  30. Angela says:

    Got my mag yesterday – so excited to see you in there! And the spread looks absolutely great. Lucky baby to one of those rooms!

  31. Ivy Lane says:

    Congratulations Erin!! I think both rooms are amazing! I think most peeps are on a budget these days.. the “low” room is so fantastic!

  32. LL says:

    Baby Mod, available at Walmart, makes a crib that looks just like the Oeuf, but for under $300. http://www.walmart.com/ip/14659336

  33. Great job! I even find myself liking the bedding on the cheaper version much better.

  34. Karen says:

    Looks awesome. Very similar styles for WILDLY different price points. Both look sharp, though.

    If ONLY I
    A. had and
    B. could spend that much on a nursery.

  35. Congratulations! Both nurseries look great. Job well done Erin!!

  36. paula says:

    this is gorgeous!

  37. I don’t have any children but for some reason, pictures of nurseries inspire me! Loving them!

  38. Dina says:

    These are fantastic and I love seeing the 2 rooms side-by-side like this. Great job keeping the spirit of the overall design the same on both budgets. At 37 weeks pregnant, I have been totally and completely immersed in nursery design for the whole summer so loved seeing this feature!

  39. LD says:
