2 Milestones

My boyfriend informed me today that he is excited for two huge milestones in our relationship. 1) He can’t wait to have kids together. (After we get married, so don’t freakout Mother.) 2) He can’t wait for those said, unborn children to grow-up and move out so we can have the house to ourselves again.

So in honor of his bipolar epiphany I have collected various nursery ideas, because even though we aren’t expecting, it’s nice to know I still intend to be a sarcastic ass even when we are.

Garish and Patterned

Calm and Chic

Bright and Cutsie

Modern and Bold



Super Girly






















I really wanted to be clever and snarky (as usual) about some nursery designs, but after scouring the internet for hours I have decided that people are lest likely to take risks and be ridiculous when it coms to their children’s rooms. (Which is super refreshing considering the idiocy that some adults settle for.) If you are expecting or were expecting and have now received, you should check out Simplified Bee. We all know that the baby isn’t going to appreciate ambiance for quite some time, so you may as well make their space enjoyable for you– the unthanked, unwound and (quite possibly) unbathed, new parent.


About Kristen Van Loon

My name is Kristen Van Loon and this is the chronicle of my search for *Oomf!* Not only have I deemed myself qualified to revamp, repair, refurnish and refine my house, but I also jump into any DIY project that my friends, co-workers, family and practical strangers stumble upon. I would love to tell you that this is my full-time job and my complete life mission, but I make my bread and butter elsewhere and raise a daughter (Olivia). I have some experience but no time, no formal training and no money. My only saving grace is that I love figuring things out, I’m great at improvising and I’m always inspired. For the record, some things that I do (play with electricity, for one) may seem risky, and some of them are. I will always tell you what I’ve done, but I won’t ever suggest things for you that aren’t safe. Even though I push the envelope, I am only marginally incompetent. If sources (father, my brain, Google) tell me not to do something then I usually won’t. But if I do try and it blows up in my face (figuratively or literally) you will hear all about it, and you hopefully won’t attempt it. At the end of the day, I hope to inspire you. Space-Lift isn’t just a blog, it’s a verb. It’s an action that brightens your surroundings by assaulting everything that needs improvement. Nothing is off limits, and all possibilities will be considered.
