Chloé Fleury

I should have introduced you to Chloé Fleury’s shop long ago, but since she’s having a moving sale this weekend, I thought now’s a good time to make up for the omission.

Her inspiring nursery was shared online far and wide,


but her 3D paper art has really stolen the show.

The Paper Bunny Kit and Paper Fox Kit are $40 each, but through this weekend you can take 15% off with the coupon code BYESUMMER15.

Twilight Buddies

Cloud B might be most famous for the Sleep Sheep and Twilight Turtle (which we have and love to give as gifts!), but if your little one doesn’t love turtles, there are other adorable options!  We saw some of the Twilight Buddies last year at ABC Kids Expo, and here are a few of the ones that have come out…

Ferm Living Autumn/Winter 2014

Ferm Living has got lots of goodies for the kids coming out very shortly.  I look forward to their new collection a couple times a year and they have yet to disappoint.  Before you start your next redecorating project, take a look at the Autumn Winter 2014 Kids Collection!

KIDS Ferm Living A/W 2014

I’m linking to the company page for now, but the collection will soon be available on Clever Spaces, Ferm Living’s official retail partner for the US & Canada.

From the new kids line I spy a Cloud Lamp and Billy Bear Cushion.

I also want to be sure you get a look at Mr. Inka Snake in gray, in case the colorful Mr. Snake doesn’t work for you.

New Color for the Honest 4-in-1 Convertible Crib

The Honest 4-in-1 Crib has been out of stock for a while, but not only is it now back, but they’ve added a new color (in addition to the original gray)!


A great modern crib, a great price, two color choices, converts to a toddler and full bed AND they’ll give a crib to a family in need.  Do you need any more reasons to buy?

I love this White / Washed Natural combination.  $400

The matching Dresser with Changer Top is $430.  Gotta love this collaboration between The Honest Company and Babyletto!
