BILD Alphabet Poster from Ikea

We usually feature alphabet posters from etsy sellers, but the Bild Alphabet Poster from Ikea is super cool.

Pair it with the Ikea PS 2104 flatwoven rug, and you’ve got the start of a lovely nursery!


Minted Home

This is blowing my mind. I never dreamed minted would get more involved in the home decor space, but as of today, welcome minted home. We already LOVE minted for art, but add their selection of designs to pillows, curtains, lampshades etc… and I’m getting giddy! With dozens of patterns and plenty of colorways, the possibilities are endless.

We use minted art pieces often in our nursery designs, and I have a feeling you’ll be seeing many of these pillows to go with them very shortly!


The minted home pillows come in five different sizes with several choices of fabric as well.

I don’t think there another place online where you can order so many beautiful custom curtains. I’ll be spending the rest of MY evening tonight shopping for curtains for our new house! There are so many different sizes patterns and colors to choose from!

The lampshades are coming soon and you can also shop for fabric to create your own fabulous accessories.

Instagram has become my favorite social media platform. I have lots of fun sharing little life snippets on there (as well as any fun shopping finds), but I love finding great nursery and design inspiration on my feed. Here are a few that really grabbed my attention recently.

First, I’m going nuts over all the texture in this nursery via Loloi Rugs, designed by Stone Textile Studio. Too good.

This sneak peek from @sheenamurph of Sheep + Stone with photo from @nicole_franzen is such a tease!


This photo via ella+elliot of a Sabrina Albanese design blew me away.


Do you use Instagram for inspiration?

Oribel PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center

It’s been a long time since we’ve posted about an activity center, not because we forget to look for them, but because there aren’t too many worthy of mention. Today I’m happy to show you the Portaplay Convertible Activity Center from Oribel. You might as well put this one up on your registry right now. Go ahead… I’ll wait…

Oribel Portaplay Convertible Activity Center

The activity center starts out as a great entertaining area for infants 5 to 12 months. Face it, sometimes you just need a safe place to put the little one down for a few minutes. But after 12 months, the Portaplay converts into a Play Table that will grow with your child through their toddler years.

I love how the legs fold up for storage, the gender neutral colors and extended life of this affordable activity center. At $150 this makes a great gift.
