When Jason and I found out that we were pregnant, one of my first phone calls was to Jillian. Not only do we consider her to be one of our greatest friends, but I also wanted to get her brain cells churning for one of the most important rooms I would ever have to decorate...the nursery!
From the moment our friendship began, I knew that I wanted Jillian to be a part of this special space. I've always been a fan of her decorating style, but I also knew the nursery would be so much more special having her involved. When I asked, Jillian graciously and excitedly agreed to help us with the room...and that's where the magic began!
Working with Jillian was so much fun! She made sure that I was always involved in decisions such as; this crib or that one, that color or this one. She continuously assured me not to stress out, as the room would come together perfectly no matter what!
In our initial discussions, I knew that I wanted to room to feel crisp, fresh, and not-so-baby. Not knowing the gender of baby Mesnick, I also wanted the colors to be neutral. Jillian took my feedback, and a few examples of rooms I liked from Pinterest to come up with the most incredible vision board.
Her vision of the room was beyond my expectations! She heard everything I said and took it to another level! The idea was simple and clean, yet very cozy.
Over the next few months, PALETTES of packages would arrive at our doorstep on a daily basis. Everything I unwrapped was gorgeous on its own, but I had no idea how Jillian would make it all work together. I put my skepticism aside and trusted that Jilly would pull it all together...and boy did she ever!
After a night of wine (water for me), gossiping and some decorating here and there, Jillian had crafted the perfect nursery. She has a true talent and knack for style. The nursery is beyond anything I ever could have dreamed of and Jillian threw it together with such ease. The girl has some serious talent!
We finished the nursery right in the nick of time, as our little Riley arrived only 2 weeks later! My first weeks of mommyhood have been incredible. Riley is such a perfect baby and her nursery matches her personality to a T! She's calm, peaceful and gorgeous. My absolute favorite time with her is when we sit in the nursery, feeding her in the rocker, enjoying the small moments together.
Thank you Jillian, for helping us create the perfect room for our perfect little angel.
