Get the Look of Sean and Catherine Lowe’s Gender-Neutral Nursery
Sean and Catherine Lowe are one of those crazy Bachelor success stories that make you want to believe in reality TV all over again, especially when they start having adorable babies and decorating swoon-worthy nurseries. Sean and Catherine ditched traditional blues and primary colors for their gender-neutral nursery and gave baby Samuel a chic, neutral-toned space instead. Contrasting white and gray furniture with colorful throw pillows, quirky art and plenty of practical storage, this nursery is cool, contemporary and stocked with affordable ways to steal the look. Check out the full nursery tour on Architectural Digest and then scroll down to see how to get the same look in your nursery.
Since the Lowes didn’t know baby’s gender until he was born, they decided to paint the room a soft gray shade and accent with khaki and cream throughout. They brought in pops of teal and orange, and added cute animal accents like a zebra rocker, a panda mobile and watercolor animal art prints above the crib.
Copy the Lowes’ nursery style with modern furniture options like a white crib, a gray rocker chair and light wood storage shelves. Accessorize with colorful throw pillows, cozy textures and plenty of animal accessories. A hanging shelf is the perfect place to show off family photos, and a quirky storage chest makes clean-up time a breeze.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
