She Makes It Look Good


The whole pregnancy/momma thing...

That there is my friend Gray Benko and her daughter Farris. Gorgeous pair, right? Well throw in her husband, Mike, and it's quite the gorgeous family.


So as you can tell they're expecting another one soon. To get the nursery ready for the baby boy arriving next month, Gray went to work on a big girl room for Farris. It's good. Really good. So I wanted to share it with you all, because I think you'll like it too. 


 And Farris adores it too. See...


Such a happy girl. 

 Some Room Sources:

Wall Color: SW Pink Chablis (ironically same color as Lilly's new room)
Bed Quilt: Serena & Lily
Pillows & Shams: Homegoods
Frames above bed: Art of Chic
Portrait Caricatures: Pop Pop Portraits
Scarfs: Zara
Knobs: Anthropologie
Mirror: Ikea (spray painted green)
Pink Hair & Bunny Art: Bella & Bunny
Fairy Picture: Pottery Barn Kids
Painting Above Dresser: By Farris
Small Square Painting Above Bedside Table: By Farris

The dresser, stool, desk, and hope chest were refinished by Gray's friend, Jessica at Stellar Junk, who is clearly a talented and helpful friend.

And just throwing in this here instagram to embarrass Gray (but delight all of you)...

Hot Damn, Right?!

Gorgeous room, Gray. Farris is one lucky little gal. xx

** Note: Gray is a kickass children's photographer. So her photos are kickass. If you want kickass photos too, contact her. She's taking a couple of months off though, naturally.

** The beautiful maternity photos were taken by Virgil Bunao.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
