Adam’s Room

Adam’s Room

An eclectic mix of baby, nature, and global culture.

Another view of the crib. I am using the mobile as the basis for the design theme. The quilt is a family heirloom and was hand sewn in Pakistan. My mom repurposed it and stuffed it with a soft cotton batting, so that it would be cozy for a baby. Quilts can be a cute and colourful way to add cozy elements to a child’s room. Not to mention they may hold on to them long into their adulthood. Personally I would recommend making them yourself as that way it would feel more personal and special. This is relatively easy to do with the help of items such as a quilt pattern and a quilting cutting mat you may be able to create a simple but nice addition to you child’s bedroom.

The inspiration for this mobile came from a bird mobile diy project i found online. I was vacationing in Berkeley, California, when I came across a small gift shop with these wind chimes. I bought three and hung them from the ceiling with fishing wire. I love how the white hooks and clear string give you the impression that they are suspended in air. I found an added benefit for using wind chimes, babies love to hit them and hear it make noise! However, there can be babies who don’t like the chimes making unwanted noise. In that case, colorful ones such as butterfly wind chimes that may have a faint jingle sound, can be considered.

I found this photo frame set from a cool shop I found called Mindy’s Classic Finds – you can usually call the owner and ask her to set aside items that you are looking for. I’m all about great customer service, and will be a loyal customer forever! Inside are some family photos we took professionally – I printed some in black and white for contrast.

Art from Land of Nod – I dont think they are available any longer. The bear on top of the armoire is actually a gift from Nana, it is a sleeping bag for overnight visits.

Here are some close ups of the items on the dresser. Personalized piggy bank was a baby shower gift, and the retro toy is from Ikea.

It wouldn’t be any fun if he didn’t love to play in it! We can always clean up later…

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
