My Modern Nursery #101: Sunshine Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We haven’t done a yellow nursery for a while, so it was about time that we revisit this popular gender-neutral option. I chose a creamy Sunshine Yellow from Lullaby Paints for Project Nursery and knew I wanted to use Babyletto’s new Bingo 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with that great Cool Mint accent color. I think the board turned out great but if you need more inspiration and ideas for this color scheme, we’ve got you covered with a lot more options on our Sunshine Yellow Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board.

Bedding from KidWild Collective

Formerly known as Flink, KidWild is re-branded, refreshed and full of new modern organic kids bedding options.


Crib sheets like this Trees pattern retail for $46.


I also really like the Woodland and Clouds prints!


Coordinating accessories are also available and I’m personally interested in their twin bedding though I wish there were sheets to go with these!

Bu! Blankies

If you’re looking for a really unique blanket to use as a lovey, perhaps one of these Bu! Blankies from Little Red Stuga will do the trick. They’re half blanket and half toy, perfect for nap time, peekaboo as well as pretend play.

Petit Collage Rugs from Jaipur

Coming soon from Jaipur is a series of youth rugs designed by Petit Collage. Jaipur is taking the Petit Collage aesthetic to a huge new scale and I can’t wait to start using these in room designs!

The rugs were recently previewed at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Hooray for great collaborations!

Jr. & Sr. Seating

Suitable indoors and out, Ikea’s BUNSÖ is the mini version of the PS VÅGÖ. They are remarkably comfortable, and for $15 and $30, won’t have to sit on your wishlist long. Get to your local Ikea ASAP because after the summer, there’s usually less outdoor stuff in stock (if any at all).

They are also both available in red and green.

The New Pixie Camera from The Twig Co.

The ultra-popular Pixie camera from The Twig Co. has recently been updated to this new interlocking, interchangeable design! You can select different colors for the top, bottom, lens and dial to create your own unique toy. Add additional parts and pieces and customize at will.

You can also select a pre-made color combination to keep things simple, and add additional pieces as needed. $40

I just love the additional layer of fun with this new mix-n-match design!


Nobodinoz Toys and Decor Now Available Stateside!

We’ve been admiring Nobodinoz from afar for a long time, but their lovely collections are starting to trickle into US retailers.

At Norman & Jules, you can currently order the Wooden Bowling Set,

Carrito Mapachito (raccoon trolley),

and a couple of their full sized play tents.

I love the color palette Nobodinoz uses. It’s fresh and modern (of course), a little bit tropical, and all goes together perfectly. I’m starting to think I should use their colors as the scheme in my new house! I can’t wait to see what else becomes available. Most of all I’m hoping to see the furniture! Who’s with me?!

Whitney Brothers Contemporary Play Kitchen

Whitney Brothers provides quality wood furniture for preschools and childcare centers, but with their GREENGUARD® Gold Certified products, sturdy construction and straight-forward design, there are many Whitney Brothers items to consider for your nursery or playroom.

My favorite Whitney Brothers collection is the Contemporary pretend play set. The mega set is the Contemporary Kitchen Ensemble which includes five components– refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, laundry unit, stove, and sink. $1185

Contemporary Kitchen Ensemble

Taking up less space and at more accessible price point, the three piece Contemporary Kitchen Toddler Combo is really enough for most. At $490, this should last for generations.

You can also buy the pieces individually and they range from $260-$270 each.

Pluto’s Secrets

If you’re like me, you’ve spent some time today searching nasa.gov for photos of Pluto taken during New Horizon’s flyby. Such an exciting day in astronomy! I was also excited to find a great kids book about Pluto in the library this afternoon. We brought it home and read it at bedtime. It’s a great informative book that shares Pluto’s “secret”– at least everything that has been discovered up until yesterday. The end of the book mentions New Horizon’s trip and is a great transition to talking with your kids about yesterday’s momentous event. I highly recommend finding a copy of Pluto’s Secret: An Icy World’s Tale of Discovery to share this milestone of science with your little ones!

Sadly, unlike most of my posts, these are only available to our European readers. I just couldn’t help sharing them.
