They Posted These, So I Don’t Have To

These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.  Lots of great stuff!

First, I’m sure you’ve seen this nursery.  Love it.  Have loved it for years.  Well, guess what?  The little girl who lived here, grew up, got a big girl bed and a baby brother

… and little brother has moved in and had the place redecorated.  Take a peek at the tranformation of Paige’s nursery into Noah’s Nautical Nest on hellobee.

You KNOW I’ve been waiting for Modern Playhouse to come up with an outdoor design.  Well, Gabrielle Blair got the heads up on this one and posted Modern Playhouse’s new Dacha Playhouse (coming February 15th!) on Babble’s Family Style.  It’s made of 100% post consumer recycled plastic too!  We so need one of these.

Mari of Small for Big says, “You need a little neon in your life,” and I believe her.  I love the neon creations she shares from Sketch.Inc.

When I first saw pictures of the fold-flat Flux Chair, I started seriously considering these as extra dining seating in the house.  I’d still love to have about a half a dozen of them, but now I’ll have to add a few Flux Junior Chairs to the wish list as well.  Thanks to Bambino Goodies for the information.

Finally, Kid Crave put together a super fun and really useful Essential Guide to Raising A Hipster.  Perfect!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Don’t forget to enter our Wallfry nursery art print giveaway as we’ll be picking the winner on Monday!

Todd Oldham’s Kid Made Modern Collection for Target

I’m super excited about Todd Oldham’s Kids Made Modern Collection for Target.  Coming May 20th, I can’t wait to get my hands on this unique, fun and funky collection of modern art and craft supplies.

I’ve been a fan of Todd Oldham since the early 90s when I would watch him on MTV’s House of Style (some of you know what I’m talking about).

We already own his book Kid Made Modern and this collection is expanding on the themes and popularity of that book.

So far my favorite items that I can see are the tape, crayons and craft kits.  This release can’t come soon enough!  I’ll tell you more about it as the release date gets nearer, but for now I’ll be saving up.

New Designs from 3 Sprouts

I have a few new designs to show your from one of our perennial favorites, 3 Sprouts.

There are two new storage bins— the bear and the squirrel.

They also have two new storage caddies–the bee and the walrus.

Now for a little bad news.  From here on out, 3 Sprouts will be using regular cotton instead of organic cotton.  I really wish that at least the hooded towels could stay organic.  But to soften the blow, the prices have been lowered.  The bins are now $32 instead of $38 and the caddies are $22 instead of $24.

What do you think of the new designs and the overall changes to the line?

New From The Land Of Nod

Oh my.  I have come to get really excited about those days of the year when The Land of Nod (one of my favorite affiliates!) comes out with their new products for the season.  I can’t wait to share them with you.  At the same time I know I’m in for a marathon blogging session, because there’s SO MUCH I’ve got to post for you to see!  Here goes…

1) Furniture

This new low-rise crib made by El Greco Woodworking exclusively for The Land of Nod is an incredible new addition to their furniture collection and an excellent option for any nursery.  The crib is shown here in grey but also comes in white and white with espresso base and white with maple base.  They are all beautiful.  $900

I love the raspberry and azure Jenny Lind beds.  The fun colors really make it!  $549-$649

And the As You Wish Upholstered Bed is a simple design with a lovely curved headboard.  This can be upholstered in a number of different fabrics but the one shown below is pretty fabulous.  $899-$999

As You Wish Storage Benches are seating and storage in one.  Pick your color for $350.

2) Bedding

There a a few beautiful new crib bedding sets that I love including Not a Peep, In the Mix (pink and khaki), Counting Sheep, and Bazaar.

There are lots of cute new decorative pillows as well.

My favorites are the Freshly Picked Apple Pillow and the Head in the Clouds Pillow. $19 each

There is also a huge collection of new kids bedding but there’s too much to share, so just take a look.

3) Decor

I’m quite sure these Spell Ya Later Letters are going to be a huge hit.  The letters of the alphabet (about $3 each) are available in girl and boy colors– but you could totally mix and match them.  Then you buy a 3 yard shoelace ($4) and voila, you have yourself a super cool name banner.  Really thinking of getting this for my boys, and maybe for all the kids I know!

There are a few cute lamp shades and I can see the new pennant shade and woodgrain shade being super easy to integrate into fun modern nursery designs.

The new (faux) leather poufs would function as bright pops of color as well as a seat or ottoman. $79

I also really like these stacking floor cushions.  22″ for $29, 27″ for $39 and 32″ for $49.  These come in pink and blue.

One final thing I’ve got to share is the Dot Matrix Gumball Rug.  4’x6′ for $350.  We’ve been seeing this here and there on blogs over the past year, but now you can buy one too!

I hope you’re inspired and go take a look at all the stuff I skipped.  Kudos again to The Land of Nod for their excellent choices and always keeping it fresh.

Real Room Tour: Blue But Gender Neutral Modern Nursery

Jodie Okun of Jodie Okun Interiors (also the mother of twins!) designed this beautiful space for her good friends– and what lucky friends they are!

I love the color combination with the aqua blue and the persimmon orange of the notNeutral Season rug and the back of the bookcase.

Just a quick comment about the Jenny Lind Crib.  While it is in no way “modern,” I fully support anyone who loves the ultra-traditional Jenny Lind style crib.  The style comes from before the era of the sleigh style crib that drives me batty, so it’s a great choice for something affordable and that will give you an eclectic look.  I think I might have to start a pin board just to show you Jenny Lind cribs in more modern nurseries in case you still don’t believe me.

The reading corner here is cozy and bright, and the art wall around the changing area is totally wonderful.  You may have noticed that it’s all about art walls these days and Jodie has executed it perfectly.

Speaking of art, her daughter did the series of pig drawings that hang over the crib.  It would be a great idea to have older siblings contribute to a new baby’s room with a great project like this.  The mobile is Cyclephants from Flensted.

Since I know you’re going to ask, Jodie and her friend found the giraffe at Homegoods.  How come I never find anything cool at Homegoods (except in other people’s carts)?!

I love when there’s an inspiration board to share with a nursery tour.  It’s a great opportunity to show how these images translate into an actual space.  Jodie really brought her vision to life in this project.

Thank you to Jodie for sharing these wonderful photos and her creative design.  I look forward to seeing any nurseries you put together in the future.  Go ahead to Jodie Okun Interiors to see more of her work and read more about this nursery in her original nursery reveal post!
