Adorable Overload

I found out about the Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose from my pal Kyle Knight of Knight Moves blog and I simply HAD to share since everyone I know currently is having/has had a baby except for maybe one person. And he doesn’t have a uterus. I won’t even get into the fact that I bought one of the DVF for Gap Kids wrap dresses just in case I some day have a baby and it’s a girl. I’ll save that one for my shrink.

But you know how I feel about animals, never mind BABY animals. Did anyone watch Frozen Planet on Sunday? I nearly lapsed into a coma from those polar bear cubs!  I can imagine nothing cuter in a nursery than these modern photographic prints either in a series or one over-scale one! But you can also be a full size, able to feed yourself adult and sport one in a room too!

A few close ups to make you go “awwwwwww”

Good for adult spaces (how does nature create such a gorgeous pink that flamingos get to sport?)

Happy Fourth: Tobi Fairley Guest Post

Happy Fourth of July everyone! The fabulous Tobi Fairley asked Kelley Moore and I to take out little “Runway to Room to Tabletop” series over to her blog on this holiday and use an all-American theme to do it.  We chose a look from the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2011 runway that screams patriotic, classic, born in the USA style.  Go to her blog to see the sources and Kelley’s picnic worthy tabletop, but here’s a peek at my guest bedroom/kid’s room….

Restoration Hardware Baby…

I am so impressed with Restoration Hardware’s newest designs for baby and kids! Talk about stylish kids room decor- this stuff is basically sized down versions of their vintage inspired goods! Just check these out!

That first crib is my favesies- with it’s caning head and foot board (it also turns into the chicest toddler bed ever)! The canopy crib comes in a close second!

These beds come in twin or full- any of them would make amazing pair in a guest room if you don’t have little ones!

Bunks beds get chic in industrial metal or antiqued wood.

Dressers for boys with some serious edge!

WAY cool chairs done in a small scale (but with BIG price tags)

A fabulous rocker with wood legs!

This play table and chairs won’t be an eyesore in your main living area.

Some fabulous accessories!

Off to Brimfield today- be back tomorrow with a report and pics!

The Chicest Kids Furniture

Jennifer Delonge styled one of my favorite nurseries of all time (her own) that I have kept in my inspiration files forever.  I remembered this the other day and went to her site only to find the COOLEST kid size furniture ever in fantastically fun and modern prints and fabrics!When it comes to kids furniture I love nothing more than adult pieces scaled down as to not create a juvenile or cheap look.

Her perfect nursery!

The furniture!

The book shelf wall ledges are SO perfect for storing storybooks in a neat way!

The MOST gorgeous play table ever made!

The adult sized gliders come in all the same fabulous prints as well!

Some more of Jennifers fabulous work.

Nursery Knockouts

I am sporting a slight tan and a VERY full inbox and to do list after almost a week away in Florida.  I spent the vacations amongst the babies and kids of my family and friends- I don’t think I ever realized how much GEAR is needed with kids! Like, an unholy amount of stuff to keep them fed, clean, happy and mobile. High fives to all you moms out there! That said, some of that gear can be pretty damn cute, as in the nursery designs of Rikshaw Design and Javis Davis.  A lot of you ask me for nursery decor ideas and these two sources are fabulous!

Rikshaw makes amazing, Indian inspired bedding and clothing that I simply adore. I cannot get enough of those elephant pillows.
