Aww, honey(comb)

I’ve been jonesing to incorporate the honeycomb trend into our home decor, and went ga-ga over these shelves from “A Beautiful Mess” a few weeks ago. Joe channeled all of his last-week-before-baby nervous energy into making them for me for my birthday!

I watched from the zero gravity chair, popsicle in hand as he tackled the project. (It took a couple of hours over a few days.)

We installed the shelves in our landing, which transformed from a snore-ville junk-piled catchall into an actually adult looking sitting space after the remodel.

Slowly but surely, the nursery isn’t the only finished-feeling space.

I think it has an unintentionally woodsy, Portland-vibe now that everything is together and I’m loving it. My mom finished the Posie Daisychain Crewelwork sampler! It’s one of my favorite gifts, ever.

The quilt was handmade by my friend Amy, for Emmett. The fabrics are so perfect.

As far as styling the shelves goes, I think they need a terrarium.

I’ll have to stop by seed in the East Village sometime soon to get succulents and supplies, but in the meantime, here’s some inspiration:
