Kickstarter Project: ZumZum Balance Bike

The only problem with this beautiful balance bike is that the estimated delivery isn’t until March. From NextGen Bikes, ZumZum features natural suspension, adjustable height and a uniquely modern design.

This Kickstarter project just launched and there are still some early bird rewards left for $149. After that, you’ll be able to get one for the Kickstarter price of $199. The estimated retail price after Kickstarter is $249 so it’ll be worth your while to act sooner than later!

Marsala: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015

I know 2014 is coming to an end because Pantone just announced the next color of the year. For 2015, they’ve chosen Marsala, “a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul.” Sounds like a delicious way to start off the new year. If you’d like to add this “hearty, yet stylish” pinkish brown to your home or nursery, here are my best suggestions.

This was not an easy task, as wine shades aren’t typically used for kids products. While office chairs in shades like Marsala are plentiful, it may take a while before we find this tone in more higher-end design. Once we do however, it’s a really easy color to work with.

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year Marsala

1- Bungalow 5 Tanjila lamp- $375 to $480
2- Dusty Rose Pillow Cover from Sophies Bazaar- $44
3- Jess Brown Doll – Rosa- $180
4- Everyone’s Lost But Me from todo TADA- $10+
5- 3 Sprouts Snail Storage Caddy- $15
6- Faux Leather Storage Basket – Burgundy- $15
7- babyroues letour II Bassinet and Stroller Black Frame System- $500
8- Antigua Jute Rug- $55 to $609
9- Axis II Chair- $1100
10- Southwestern Pouf in Maroon and Blue- $239
