Is this post sexy – NO!  But, here’s the thing.  If you’re in a home with stairs + toddlers (guests or residents), this is life! Ha!  So, here we are.  In our coastal home, we have three sets of stairs, the last being a spiral staircase to the roof.  Nedless to say, baby gates were literally one of the very first things I ordered for our home. Retractable baby gates, spiral staircase baby gates, no drill baby gates, metal baby gates, we have tried them ALL! And, in today’s post we are rounding them up for you with photos from inside our own home. It’s our hope that by rounding up all the options you’ll be able to chose the very best ones for your home.

Happy Shopping!

SPIRAL STAIRCASE BABY GATE REVIEW – NO DRILL BABY GATE

I’m sharing the very best spiral staircase baby gate first, because it took us so long to find one that works.  But, let me tell you, it was worth the hunt.  This baby gate is all the things.  We use it at the bottom and top of our spiral staircase, and it gives us so much peace of mind.  It’s really fabulous because as you can see below, it’s flexible, and attaches to polls, instead of needing a wall or permanent installation.  This means that if we have a kid free party or night on the roof, we can just put it up. WOW.  Another great thing about this gate is the width, they offer varying sizes to block off larger staircase openings.  This is a FIND.

RETRACTABLE BABY GATE REVIEW

While this one does require permanent install points on the wall, it can be rolled back OR taken off the wall very easily for a kid free night at home.  I also love that this is a nice white color, that really blends in well with our walls.  I’m linking two different versions.  We’ve tried both, and they are not fabulous.  We’ve got one installed in a hall that leads to the stairs, our toddler has almost found her way under this, but it still help communicate that the stairs are off limits for a bit.  It works really well at the bottom of our stairs, for keeping her on the first floor, and that’s my preferred placement for this one.

METAL BABY GATE REVIEW

Last, we’d love to share this chic metal baby gate we found with a fun wood pattern.  The pattern is so realistic that it really throws people for a loop when they see it.  We are using this baby gate at the top of our stairs to the basement.  We really wanted something more solid in this spot, that we felt like we could count on to hold the weight of a toddler, and this has done just that!  It’s super sturdy, and we’ve loved using the baby gate wall protectors linked above with it.  Love this find.  I’m also linking a white metal baby gate that we used and loved in our first home.

Outdoor Furniture Made For Morning Coffee + Sunset Dinner

Outdoor spaces are everything to me. So, we built a home that completely focuses on inviting outdoor spaces for early morning coffee and sunset dinner with family and friends. Each space has taken on it’s own personality and has it’s own perks. So, I’m excited to highlight all of them. But, let’s start with the main floor first. This outdoor living space is just outside of the living / kitchen area. There is nothing between the interior and exterior but a sliding glass door that spans the length of the house. So, creating a space that flowed from the inside color wise was important to me.
