Incy Interiors USA

Incy Interiors is an Australian company that I have followed on Instagram for a long time now. I’m constantly drooling over their designs and photos from afar, but just this year, it has become possible to shop Incy Interiors in the US!

For the nursery, Incy Interiors has three unique crib styles with many exciting color options to choose from.

This metal style is your fresh alternative to the traditional Jenny Lind style crib. Each color has a different name (Navy = Chloe, Cream = Reese, Pink = Romy, Brown = Sophia, Rose Gold = Ellie, Silver = Harry) and the cribs retail for $700.

I’m also particularly fond of the Teeny Crib, which comes in Green, Navy and Pink. This retails for $800 and is a perfect choice for any modern nursery. Pair it with a matching change table and your nursery is nearly complete.

The most amazing crib in the collection is the Georgia Crib ($1100) with a timeless look that can be the perfect showpiece in your modern nursery. The Lucy Change Table is the perfect accompaniment and there’s also a coordinating side table and bookcase.

Incy Interiors has also partnered with Hobbe Australia to bring us the Incy x Hobbe Rocker. This is a glamerous rocking chair with rose gold legs and blush or indigo fabric. This will be available at the end of the summer for $1300.

So many wonderful designs to expand your nursery choices, no?

My Modern Nursery #121: Sleep Like a Tiger Nursery Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

To kick off the summer, I was inspired by the beautiful painted colors and rich patterns and textures in Mary Logue’s Sleep Like a Tiger, with illustrations by Pamela Zagarenski. In this sweet bedtime tale, a little girl, who isn’t tired, learns that all the animals need to sleep, even little girls.

The girl’s parent teach her all about the sleeping animals, and in the end, the girls takes the lessons she’s learned and is able to fall asleep on her own.

I used some of the details from the book like the tiger and the crowns, and then layered colors and textures over neutral furnishings and Island Sand Paint. For ever more texture, you could stencil over the walls or layer on a pattern of wall decals.

Playhouses Galore with Antsy Pants

There are hundreds of wonderful tent and playhouse styles for kids and we’ve shared many of my favorites in the past, but now Target has a clever system of buildable play spaces from Antsy Pants.

The system starts with a set of poles and connectors. The sets are available in small, medium and large sizes. The small size shown below is used to create a shop like the Donut Shop or Farmers Market.

The medium set is perfect for tents, playhouses and castles, while the large set can be used for even more complex designs like the ice cream truck or pirate ship as well!

With the addition of fabric covers, the building sets can transform into any number of fun play areas like this circus tent

the amazing pirate ship

or this adorable lemonade stand.

There’s even a convenient storage container to contain all the pieces.

The Antsy Pants system is exclusively available at Target and you may want to get all the pieces you like sooner than later because you can never be sure how long they will carry this uniquely wonderful collection.

Happy Mother’s Day

We were running around all day today so we could go meet my newest nephew (less than a week old!), so this post is a little later than usual, but I hope all you modern moms, moms-to-be, mothering types and motherhood supporters had a wonderful day.

This is our first Mother’s Day photo outside the house and I feel like there are a couple lessons there. One, as a mother, you have to learn to be flexible. Nothing is guaranteed to match your expectations, so you have to roll with it and be happy with the joy there is, not what you think ought to be. Second, as your kids get older (as you can see mine keep doing!), the world expands. From the nursery to the rest of the home, to the neighborhood, then school and beyond… their world keeps growing and expanding and yours moves along with it. We may feel cooped up in the early days and years by nap times and mealtimes and then the school calendar, but life opens up and it gets both easier to manage and harder to keep them as close as you’d like.

I thank these two brown haired, brown eyed, growing too fast smiling faces for loving me as their mom, for trusting that I know what I’m doing and teaching me so many lessons about myself. If you’re just starting on the journey of motherhood, just wait. It’s so much more than you can imagine.

With love,
-Esther

Modern Baby Gifts from Nambé

I have been known to put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to shopping for just the right gift, but for new baby or first birthdays, the baby and kids gift items from Nambé really hit the mark.

My favorite piece is the Kibo Piggy Bank. It’s a minimal and durable design by Alvaro Uribe done in a modern Stainless Steel and Acacia Wood combination.

The dining pieces make incredible gifts and you should take a look at the Kibo Toddler Flatware Set, Baby Dish and the Baby Cup as well as the Baby Nambé Feeding Set  (shown below).

Another really unique gift is the Belo First Tooth & Curl Box. Many parents save things like this, but this is the way to turn them into a really treasured keepsake.

Check out the full collection on nambe.com.

My Modern Nursery #120: The House in the Night Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For this month I was inspired by the soothing poetry of Susan Swanson and etched illustrations of Beth Krommes in the Caldecott award winning picture book, “The House in the Night.” Even in the darkness, the light shines through this soothing bedtime story.

The_House_in_the_Night

In only black, white and yellow, the images are rich and textured. Even though the pages are mostly black, a light glows through it all and there’s nothing to fear in the night.

With Perfect Gray walls, I’ve made the room a bit lighter than the book but used similar dark tones with yellow accents. There’s nothing to fear at bedtime in this glowing modern nursery.

Nursery Trend: Oversized Florals

The bold, girly trend showing up more and more in modern nurseries this year is oversized florals. This really does make decorating the nursery simple. You just keep things basic and let the walls do all the talking.

This Floral Pastel Nursery on 100 Layer Cake-let is incredible with one hand-painted feature wall.

There are theme mobiles and felt mobiles but Gulnara Kydyrmyshova does themed felt mobiles really well.

I love how the pieces hang off the large palm in the Pink Flamingo Mobile.

Owls and stars are common mobile motifs, but Gulnara’s Owls and Stars Mobile has a fresh and original look.
