Hi, I'm Catharine.

Welcome to Klepac & Co. where I share our adventures in renovating our 88 year old Bungalow, Interior Design projects, and all things Motherhood. 

A West Texas Inspired Nursery

Would you be surprised if I told you that I already had Baby Klepac's nursery designed in my head within first few weeks of being pregnant? This room is something I've thought about ever since planning our wedding back in 2012. And I've been slowly collecting pieces for it ever since.

| THE ROOM |

When we first moved into this house we used this space as an office + studio, but have since relocated our office to share a space with the guest room. This room has been a hodgepodge of different spaces, but I don't think we've really ever shown it on the blog other than the scary befores from our initial walkthrough. It is basically the room of 1,000 doors. It has 2 small closets and one large closet, along with a door to our bedroom (super convenient), and a door to the laundry room/mudroom/breakfast nook area. I've saved the shocking before and afters for the end of this post. Pretty first. Scary later.

| THE INSPIRATION |

The entire room was based on our love of West Texas. We wanted a gender neutral room that didn't necessarily look like a baby's room, and rather an extension of the rest of our home's aesthetic. The Jonathan Adler pillow on the rocker was the ring bearer pillow in our wedding, and even back in 2012, I bought this pillow knowing that we would one day use it in our future baby's room. I just love all of the saturated colors and whimsy of it all. When we went to Rome for our honeymoon we picked up a colorful Italian alphabet poster of similar coloring knowing we would one day hang it on the wall of our nursery. It's the little details like this that slowly started to make this room come together. We also used several pieces that we already owned to help the room feel less juvenile. By doing this, we now have pieces that can grow with the baby as this room transitions into a "big kid" room.

We really hope that Baby Klepac enjoys this room as much as we do. Okay now for the scary before and afters..
