Be Inspired by this Inspirational Nursery

Oh, the dreams that will be cultivated here! I feel privileged to share this inspirational space with you all. The art and accessories on the dark gray background are what really make this room incredible.

With a selection of feminist icons from The Film Artist on etsy, a young lady will have no shortage of role models to look up to.

I’m also crazy about the oversized text art.

A cozy reading area is a must have for developing young minds and getting them on the path to greatness.

MiO from Manhattan Toys

I still love the Little People of my childhood and I feel that Manhattan Toy’s MiO Collection is the wooden, modern version. The collection has an adorable car and a bus and there’s a trailer that can be used with either one.

MiO Car + 2 People

The flagship of the collection is the modern, modular dollhouse that is made up of sleeping, eating and working areas and comes with two people.

Mio Playing Eating Sleeping Working + 2 People

You can buy different modules separately like this sleeping set,

MiO Sleeping + 2 People

or the eating set.

MiO Eating + 2 People

Accessory block sets like the woodland with fox and skunk continue to expand creativity in play,

MiO Woodland Fox and Skunk

and you’d be amazed at the way you can use the camping set (think adding it to the trailer!).

MiO Camping + Bear

I’d love to collect them all and can’t wait to see what new pieces are added in the future. So much fun!

My First Cubby From Little Partners

It’s amazing how preschool teachers are able to manage each day with a classroom full of tots when you’re at home tearing our hair out with just one or two. How do they do it? A lot of it is routine and allowing kids to do as much as they can on their own. You can bring home that type of preschool routine and encourage independent responsibility with the My First Cubby from Little Partners.

Cubby_Lifestyle_sitting-800x800

With six open storage areas and hooks, kids will store their own belongings and will be able to transition more independently from home to going out and back to home again.

LP_Cubby_Lifestyle-800x800

This doesn’t mean you’ll never have to tell them 20 times to put their shoes on, but at least they’ll know where their shoes are?

Ferm Living Kids Spring Summer 2017

There is so much cool new stuff to show you from Ferm Living’s 2017 Spring/Summer Kids collection.

I’ll start with the big stuff, and work my way down from there. So last year, Ferm Living started to grow beyond home decor into furnishings, and this year the furniture has spread down into the children’s collection!

The Little Architect furnishings include a table, chairs, bench, desk and storage pockets (large and small) that attach to the desk or table.

In these furniture photos, you can also see the Braided Lampshades (Medium above and Tall below).

getimage (2)

The Little Architect collection comes in 5 muted colors– Bordeaux, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Rose and Gray.

Shown with the chairs above is one of my favorite new pieces, the ABC Wall Deco. This is the most fun and kid-friendly woven wall hanging I’ve yet come across!

Also perfect for the nursery wall is this adorable Rabbit Mirror!

Ferm Living Rabbit Mirror

You may also consider the simple hanging Kids Growth Chart. It is available in Rose, Mint and Off-White.

If you like the Braided Lampshades, you’ll love the Braided Baskets as well.

Ferm Living Braided Baskets

I was excited to see the two new wallpaper patterns. Swan comes in Rose and Gray.

Ferm Living Swan Wallpaper Rose

Terrazzo wallpaper is also available in Rose and Gray and can be used well beyond the nursery. And you thought Terrazzo was just for the floor!

getimage (10)

There are lots of cuddly new textiles for spring. The Stripy Snake (blue, rose) and Blanket (blue, rose) make a perfect pair as decor and are wonderful to give as gifts.

If you like the Terrazzo pattern, you might love the Knot Bean Bag in Terrazzo Rose or Terrazzo Blue.

The beautifully textured Popcorn Bolsters (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) and Pillows (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) can be mixed in with any of the new kids bedding.

Ferm Living Popcorn Bolsters

And speaking of bedding, last season’s Seaside and Party patterns are now available as bedding. Check out the Cloud Lamp in Dusty Rose as well.

Ferm Living Seaside Bedding

Ferm Living Party Bedding

If you love the Swan pattern, it comes in bedding as well! Choose the Rose or the Gray.

Ferm Living Swan Bedding Rose

There are also more neutral Milkyway bedding patterns in Rose and Cream as well as solid color bedding that can be mixed in with your favorite patterns or used on their own.

Finally, to add to last season‘s Seaside and Party dining collections, you’re going to want to grab the Seaside

Ferm Living Seaside Dinner Mat

and Party Dinner Mats. These really round out the sets.

Ferm Living Party Dinner Mat

The new collection won’t be available until March and ships worldwide via their website. If you wait a little longer, you’ll find the pieces for US ordering on Clever Spaces.
