WOW -- sounds like you have been busy -- can't wait to see pics of the family room stuff -- don't cha just love pottery barn -- i wish that the catalog people could just come and do my WHOLE HOUSE --- for FREE of course -- it wouldn't be as much fun if i had to pay for it -- RIGHT???


that room sounds like it's going to be GORGEOUS!

and just checked out the details for the creative escape. i wish things had worked out like i was hoping and I could afford it! It looks FABULOUS! You must do it again!


Well... no email in my mail... but I'm excited for the others... I think in all my excitement I actually forgot to include background info with mine!!! lol...

your room sounds like it will be delightful! LOVE the picture wall!


You are amazing beyond belief!My Cousin just recently had a baby girl and big sister Isabella who is now 3 wanted to stay in her baby room..she was mommies baby!So they had a project and made the perfect Princes and Fairies and definately pink room. She fought it for weeks...but as baby arrived Isabella showed Francesca her big girl room!I am sure you will go wild and she will LOVE her new room...and Quincy can show her baby sister (hehehe) her Pink Pretty Room! good luck...I almost forgot...what happened Jennifer didn't have "Pink" couch? I am in shock! LOL! Have a blast


you family room is going to be awesome!
love that you are nesting and still finding the time to be creative
love that and need it as well
i hope quincy will be able to adjust in her new room downstairs....hope the pink idea works

Oh Heidi, This is exactly the look I want to do in my LR over my old singer sewing machine. This is so cool. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. Good luck on all your nesting...The precious little one will be here soon!

LOVE the Pottery Barn cat! Just got the kids one yesterday. Super cute! Your family room is going to be so inviting and of course gorgeous. It will make you happy happy happy!!
Can't wait to see the water pictures you picked!!


I just love it when things finally come together creatively. I have a hard time with the house too, and I love the green couches they look so comfy.

No email notice for me... I cant wait to see the pictures that were chosen, maybe you could post some pictures from the finalists. I was stalking this site yesterday all day to see if the announcement would be here. Congrats to the finalists!!!


LOL...I've had this same page ripped out of my PB catalog and taped to my wall since January...been planning it myself! But, I'm only about 2 1/2 weeks away from delivering #3 so it's going to have to wait another month I guess... OH! and please show us your finished project! I can't wait to see how you do it! :)


slip covers rule with children :)


Happy Hesting, Heidi.

You're so clever getting slipcover couches. LOVE them! And word to the wise, Toddler Time Air freshner from Wal-Mart ROCKS!

Also, I think that you guys should have a LOTTERY for some poor scrapper (literally poor) to go to the Creative Escapes. This year my husband actually encouraged me to go to one of the BIG events. But we are a military family with three special needs kids so the money just isn't there this year....Maybe next year.

if not for me (i am never that lucky! I used up all my luck meeting my husband) then for some scrapper....you should consider a lottery....



I love that look. It has a timeless feel to it. I understand the impatience...when i buy new furniutre, i want it the same day! :)


i think there is something about a baby coming that actually makes you get things DONE...i am the same way right now...desperatley trying to switch rooms around, clean out closets and organize...aahhh! can i get it all done in 4 weeks?? we'll see!


Please DO TELL how many water photo entries you rec'd.? Curious. Thx. Best of Luck to all finalists!
Beautiful room--inspiring...and I'm sure you have the perfect photos for the shelf!


oh, my gosh! i tore that page out and had it forever. just moved from az to tn and put it in my office. same deal...b/w non-posed photos in black frames...awesome look! will be fun to change them out. ley Q get involved in all the nursery decisions and she will be a little more eager to move...worked for mine (both times). good luck


poor "q". i wouldn't like to give up a room i loved so much either. but making it special for her will make not even want her old room. i would have laughed so hard at her while i heard her talk to herself. love the new family room idea. that is beautiful. love the photos. i can't even imagine what your house looks like. with all the pixes we have seen thus far, i would imagine it could be on a parade of homes. i sure would pay to see how creative you are. just those trees at xmas. maybe the babies room would be a start. you could make money to pay for the dream baby palace. just looked at the sneak peaks. some really awesome things. i can't wait for it to get here. those are going to be marvelous projects.


LOVE that couch!!


I love that display of photos on the shelf!!

Heidi, I have that couch from Pottery Barn and I LOVE it! It's nice and deep and comfy. Ours is a burgundy velvet color (can't say velvet is going to be great for spit-up, but we weren't exactly thinking along those lines when we were first getting married and furnishing our house two years ago). I think though, that my husband would prefer the love sacks over a couch! Ha! Anyway, I understand about the "going up and down stairs" thing- I'm about to hit week 37 and I'm quite ready for this baby to arrive. We also didn't find out the baby's gender so I'm very anxious to hear "It's a __!__". Have fun with the family room remodeling fun and stay as comfy as possible for the remainder of your pregnancy!


I hope THIS doesn't happen to you.



i have that frame set up in my family room too!! :) I adored it. I changed mine up a bit and added a graffiti quote (www.wonderfulgraffiti.com) to finish it off...my most favorite design yet in our home. :) have fun with your room!!

Okay, you've gotta run, not walk, to your local bookstore and and get the book Wendy Bellissimo Nesting (or, hey, just get it online at http://tinyurl.com/qwo9e)! The gender-neutral rooms here are awesome! I love how nothing is over-the-top and everything is practical. Good luck with creating the nursery, whenever you are able to do so.


LOL! I've had a similar picture from Pottery Barn catalog torn out for months too! I know it will inspire me to something...just haven't figured out what yet! Have fun decorating and nesting!
