This is a great way to get Jonathan Adler style for less.  Mix a couple of the Happy Chic pieces with your favorite Jonathan Adler Junior accessories for a custom look– whatever is most comfortable for your budget!

The Elephant Needlepoint Throw Pillow features an iconic design in the traditional style of Jonathan Adler Pillows.  If it’s out of reach, the Happy Chic Charlie Elephant Pillow has an embroidered ear, eye and heart and might do the job for 1/6 of the price.

Bloom Retro Nursery Collection

They call it retro, but it’s really a unique new modern crib with a fresh style for 2014.  These are the kind of curves I like on a crib.  No sleighs, no arches, just a slightly rounded shape that softens the modern style just a smidgen.

From Bloom, the Retro Crib is a solid wood crib “inspired by mid-century design.”  It is available in Coconut White as well as Oak.

The matching Retro Dresser comes with a white frame and your choice of Coconut White, Frost Grey or Oak drawer fronts.  The crib can be converted to a toddler bed with the Retro Bed Rail.

Etsy Finds: Handmade Bassinets

While we may dream of handcrafting our baby’s first furniture and imagine it being passed down through the generations, this just isn’t reality for all but a few creative individuals.  Fortunately, those with the time and ability can sometimes be found sharing their skills with us on Etsy.  Every so often I scan the site to see if the woodworkers and furniture makers have created anything for their littlest customers.  This time I’ve found two handmade walnut bassinets worthy of the most fortunate babies as well as their babies and their babies’ babies.

From Fine Woodworking of SC, this beautiful hand-sculpted curved walnut cradle will someday be in a museum.  Until then (for $6000), it can be yours.  You can admire your precious creation sleeping in this precious creation– at least for a couple months until they outgrow it.

A little more realistic is The Sleeper Walnut Bassinet from rydenDESIGN.  Pull this beautiful bed into your master bedroom and you’ll always want to have a little one to occupy it.  $800

This bassinet from Turner and Branch is made to order and can be customized with your selection of woods.  The one shown below is Walnut and Ash.  $395

Which would you choose?  What about if price were no object?

New Loveliness From Sleepy King

While Sleepy King has been known for her felt foxes, bunnies and plush owls, I’m excited to see the new style she’s been working on.  These plush cat and rabbit heads are embroidered on organic linen and are absolutely gorgeous.  The pieces sell out quickly but can be made to order.

Oh Joy! for Nod

It seems that everything Joy Cho touches turns to gold (sometimes literally!).  With her graphic design background and through her mega-popular blog, the Oh Joy! brand has just exploded.  From early designs like the Hygge & West Petal Pusher wallpaper to her current party collection at Target, it’s been exciting to watch the collaborations she’s developed over the years.  Now with the new Oh Joy! for Nod collection, it’s clear to see that there’s just no limit to the goodness we can expect from Joy.

There are two bedding designs– Pattern Party and…

pattern-party-crib-bedding

Sundae Best.

sundae-best-crib-bedding

I like that the pieces mix and match easily between the two so there a lot of room to take the patterns and create your own unique look.  My least favorite parts of the bedding are the crib quilts, but without them I really love the sheet and skirt combinations.  The sets have matching changing pad covers as well as toddler sheet sets and twin versions.

Accessorize the bedding with these whimsical pillows– Ice Cream, Green Heart and Cherry.

 

Oh Joy for Nod cushions

As part of the Oh Joy! for Nod Collection, Joy curated an art collection for the Nod Institute of Art.  Mix and match your favorite art pieces for the perfectly lovely and coordinated gallery wall.

I’m starting to think I might need the Ice Cream print (though I think I want a much larger version!).

In addition to the bedding and art, one of the most amazing parts of the collection are these lamps…

There’s also this giant Dotted Glow Floor Lamp that would add a stylish glow anywhere in your home…

The Pinwheel Rug is a colorful statement,

and the Sprinkle, Grey Stripe and Multi Circle Plush Pachyderms are fun gifts.

I love how you can just pick and choose your favorite pieces throughout the collection and you’ll come out with a perfectly decorated whimsical and eclectic space that will be totally blog-worthy.  Let me know if you try it!

Growth Charts from Numi Numi Design

New from Numi Numi Design, these powder coated steel growth charts are off-the charts cool.  They’re among the few growth charts that are as functional as they are beautiful works of art.

As a Florida girl, I can’t decide between the Flamingo and the Alligator, but I’m sure most of you will go for the ever-popular Giraffe.  $200

My Modern Nursery #81: Kenzie Sponsored by Modified Tot

When designing your nursery, you’ve got to pick a piece or two to serve as inspiration and the spring board from which to start making choices.  I usually like to use the most colorful pieces as my spring board.  This is often art, a rug, or as in the case of my own child’s nursery, the bedding.

If you’re looking for colorful combinations of modern patterns for your nursery bedding, I recommend browsing the set offered by our sponsor, Modified Tot.  One of my favorite Mod Tot Exclusive designs is the Kenzie collection.  I love the coral, aqua and pink combination and I particularly like the Triangles fabric pattern.  I think Kenzie was a great inspiration for this modern feminine nursery board.

Soneca Pendant Lamp from CB2- $150
2- Abstract Muted 3 Gold Multicolor by Kelly Nasuta- $ based on size and framing

Kickstarter Project: Tinyme Name Blocks

Name blocks are a sweet personalized gift and the Tinyme Name Blocks are a new stylish puzzle version.

Right now you can order your 4 to 9 block puzzle at the Super Early Bird rate (25% off RPD).  The 4 block puzzle with felt cover is $24 AUD (approximately $28 US including shipping to the states).  The price will go up once the first 200 units are sold so hurry!

child-with-puzzle-close-up

There’s something really special about seeing and hearing your own name.  As an Esther, I didn’t have many personalized products readily available.  I never had a novelty license plate for my bike or a souvenir mug, so I know how precious these things can be.

Tinyme_Name-Blocks_Esther_02

I really like the color combination in the Esther puzzle, but you can choose the fonts, colors, pattern and design options to really make the puzzle custom for you.  Each custom piece comes with the felt pouch and two slide in cards to practice color and letter matching.

You can support this kickstarter today and ensure you can be among the first to get your Tinyme name puzzle!
