My favorite new items are the Luce Collection. As with all the P’kolino nursery furniture items, there are different panel color and pattern options. You can even upload your own artwork to truly make it your own.
The Luce Convertible crib transforms into a lovely toddler bed with no additional pieces to order and the Luce Dresser features up to two customizable drawers.
The second P’kolino collection is Bianco.
It looks lovely in all white, but the side panels and drawer fronts can be customized.
The matching P’kolino Dresser features up to three customizable dresser fronts. The crib converts to a toddler bed which is shown below with the optional crib drawer accessory.
The third crib is Grigio which also has customizable panels and converts into a toddler bed.
The bedding collections coordinate with the colors and patterns, and removable tempaper tots wallpaper finishes off the look.
These are exciting additions to the modern nursery world and with cribs starting at $500, they’re worth considering for your baby’s space.
From cute to just a little bit creepy, these are my picks for your October reading. For more choices, shop the 2014 list. They’re still good!

I’m ready to move into the new Cubic Dollhouse Set, though I must admit, personally I’d be more interested in a three bedroom place.
Seriously though, this amazing dollhouse is a MoMA exclusive and features a glazed roof, double height living room, and modern furnishings throughout. Furniture is included but the dolls are sold separately (and the patio isn’t currently available).
Just look how happy this little boy looks with his flat panel tv and ipad!
For ages 4+ $200
Actually it’s a white cat on a black bag, but it’s still perfect for trick-or-treating. I have at least a dozen Baggu bags and have been using them for years. I can vouch for the durability and longevity of these bags . You’ll be able to fill your Baggu with as much candy as you can carry.
Order your Black Cat Baggu before they sell out!
I’ve been playing around with ideas for decorating the house we’re moving into next month. We’re starting off with light warm gray walls throughout, so I loved working with this shade. Frosted Veil from Lullaby Paints is really close to the color in our new home and it’s a perfect neutral that’s really easy to use. In this glamorous modern nursery, the paint color is a background for black and gold.
We assembled an exciting combination of fun accessories for this space, but there are SO MANY MORE items on the Frosted Veil Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board including additional rug options, different lighting ideas and more art pieces to make this black and gold scheme work for you.
1- Cotton Canvas Scribble Lattice Curtain- $29-$59
2- Apple of My Eye Print from Old English Co- $25
Lightning Storm Wall Hung Cloud Mobile from Baby Jives Co- $34
3- Astro 1 Light Bowl Shaped Pendant- $230
4- Frosted Veil from Lullaby Paints- $33 per half gallon
5- Goldie Pants Lion Doll from Born on Monday
6- DaVinci Jenny Lind Convertible Crib, Ebony Black- $280
7- Victoria Bentwood Rocking Chair in Antique Black- $140
Faux Leather Pouf- $90
8- Nobodinoz Teepee in Black & White Diamonds- about $245 includes US shipping

I’m pretty sure that I say this every year, but if you had to choose just one store for your holiday gift shopping, The Land of Nod would be the one to pick. They assemble the best collection of beautiful, unique gifts that stand the test of time. They also work with makers and designers to develop exclusive products for the season. But I’ll quit talking about them and just show you a selection of my favorites.
First, there’s a number of fun playhouses.
The Gearhead Garage Playhouse is too fun. The Gas Pump and Speedster Sit-On are sold separately. I also like the idea of getting their Speedster Racer and/or the Fire Engine Speedster with the garage.
The canopy playhouses are great because they add a lot of whimsy but don’t take up a lot of floor space. The new styles include the Skyhouse Playhouse Canopy, London Calling Playhouse Canopy and Woodsy Playhouse Canopy.
There’s one other crazy new playhouse, the Monster Playhouse, but it’s a little weird for my taste so I could bring myself to post a photo of it.
In a world saturated with play teepes, the new Dip Dye Denim Teepee is a unique version worthy of note. Denim style canvas + ombre is a really cool look and the floor cushion they have to go with it is pretty as well.
If the full play tents take up too much space or if you prefer something more temporary, I love Suzy Ultman’s Hanging Around Hallway Playhouse that just hangs in a doorway or hall and included the welcome may.
Another soft, plush place to hang out and play is the Day Trip Plush Canoe that is part of the Camp Wandawega collection.
You may know I have a thing about rocking horses, and the Thoroughbred Rocking Horse designed by Adam Greber is a new favorite of mine.
I love how the What’s That Stand For can transform into a great number of places for pretend play. It comes with curtains, banners and theater, produce, ice cream, drive thru and bank signs as well as a chalkboard/whiteboard sign so the kids can add anything else their imaginations come up with. This might be my #1 top must-have pick for holiday gifts.
Now we did have a nice wooden workbench when the boys were little, but this If I Had a Hammer (and a Workbench) looks even cooler. With so many black and white kids rooms, this one fits right in.
My final new toy pick from The Land of Nod for the holidays is the Modular Dollhouse. It is compact, can be arranged in different combinations and best of all, comes with the furniture and dolls.
I’ll just say this, I’m a little envious of all the kids getting The Land of Nod goodies for the holidays this year. I wouldn’t be mad if you tag me in your holiday Instagram photos to show off.

While we wait for our little boy to be born in October, we have been spending time decorating the room our preschooler will eventually share with his baby brother. Their space revolves around camping, canoeing, and nature. When Esther told me about the new My Natural Eco Feeding Collection, I knew it was something I wanted to both own AND share with you all. Let’s take a peek!
The pieces are created using corn, potato, and sugar cane starches, and the entire collection is free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, and Latex. The Safety & Health page is detailed and explains everything a parent wants to know about giving their child something safe for mealtime.
A modern Fox, Deer, Owl, and Raccoon are displayed in a on each uniquely shaped bowl and plate. Little anti-slip feet create a fun visual of the animals’ feet, while keeping the feeding-friendly plate in place. Both bowls and plates are designed with a contoured front-edge lip and an anti-topple structure, with the plate geared towards more developed eaters.
The chunky, bistro-style spoon and forks are perfect for little hands learning to self-feed. With rounded tips on the fork, I would feel safe letting my infant explore his plate with these versus other, more pointed options on the market. I’m already adding the Raccoon set and blue utensils to my baby list!
Now, where would we put these adorable creatures on our table? On the Eco Place Mat, of course!
I am dying over the green forest landscape and how fun the place setting looks on this clever layout. This would even be a great mat for using modeling dough or creating animal crafts. I see many uses for this piece.
What do you think? I am excited about this new collection! Which animal would you like to see setting on your forested placemat?
