We can’t be more excited that our contributor Brandi is expecting baby #2 this fall. It’s the perfect way to celebrate our 100th nursery board!

As a fellow Floridian whose family enjoys the outdoors, canoeing and fishing, her Little Brims (is that what we’re calling them Brandi?) will be sharing a nature inspired room. Brandi starting pinning her inspiration and I look my favorite items from her board, added a few of my own, and created this nursery inspiration just for her. I hope you like it too!

New Toys from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

There are a few more stand-outs from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015– this time in the toy department.

How about this Byte-Size Personal Chalkboard ($25)?


The Fresh Picked Plush Produce ranges from $7 to $9 per piece (though I wish they just sold it as a complete set).


The Get Reel Fishing Game should keep them busy for a while ($50).


And their new Gobs of Jobs Activity Chart might just help manage household responsibilities in a fun way ($80).


These were my favorite of the new toys, but if you’ve never browsed their selection of toys, you’re really missing out. It’s a beautifully curated collection and you can’t go wrong with anything you purchase.

New Decor from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

Now that we’ve gotten you all excited about the furniture from The Land of Nod for fall, you’ll really flip for these new decor items. Before you read any further, you might as well just go get your credit card out.

First there are three new mobiles. The Paper Mache Mobile designed by Kim Baise features a camp theme. The Celestial Mobile is part of the Lotta Jansdotter for Nod collection, and the Teepee Mobile is a cool laser-cut design.

The Land of Nod Mobiles

I have a feeling that the Turtle Floor Bin and Owl Hamper are going to be super popular. Let me know if you get one!

Woven hampers toy box

While there is no shortage of faux taxidermy options, these forest friends designed by Gingiber are heading to the top of my list.


In case the tent options you’ve seen before didn’t match your decor, perhaps the Urban Design Tent ($130)…


…or even the Geodesic Playhouse would fit right in.


Finally, if you’re going to order just one then this season from The Land of Nod, I highly these reversible pillows– Good Morning or Hello Sunshine! They’re the perfect addition to any child’s bed.Good Morning Throw Pillow Hello Sunshine Pillow

You can order these now and they’ll be shipped as soon as they’re available.

New Furniture from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

If you’re shopping for nursery furniture, wait! Take a look at the new collection from The Land of Nod for fall 2015 before you make your final choice!

First, designed by Bill Eastburn, the Elevate collection includes this stunning crib ($800)…


… and the coordinating 2-in-1 Elevate Dresser ($600). There’s also an Elevate Mini Crib ($500)– so perhaps the most stylish mini crib out there?


There are two new colors of Carousel Cribs– mint and blush


… and the Larking 6-Drawer Changing Table ($900) matches the mint and blush colors. It’s also available in a smaller 3-drawer version ($700 as well as as nightstand ($300).


In black or blue, the dresser is called the Primary Dresser.


I also love this Radiant Dresser made from eco-friendly mango wood. ($1300)


There are 2 new rocking chairs at The Land of Nod. First, the Everly Rocking Chair ($1900) has a vintage feel but features fresh mint leather upholstery.


The Bakersfield Rocking Chair ($600) is a lot more affordable. Inspired by a striped sweater with elbow patches, it’s going to be your favorite cozy spot.


There are also two new gliders in The Land of Nod’s lineup. The Cosgrove Swivel Glider & Ottoman ($900 & $400) features a high back with tufting and is available in this Blueberry shade as well as Gunmetal gray.


I’d probably choose this Marguerite Glider and Ottoman ($1200 and $450), made exclusively by Monte for The Land of Nod. The straight lined upholstered glider is made a little more casual with the flange edge design.


Finally, I want to point out three fun new storage pieces. It doesn’t get much more fun than the Roboshelf Bookcase ($400). I’m certain that anyone who has ever done a robot themed nursery before now is heartbroken that they didn’t have this piece in the mix.


The Venetian Bookcase is a great front facing picture book display ($250). It comes in this Azure color as well as White, Grey and Red.


Publisher’s Clear House Bookcase (ha ha ha) is a super modern acrylic bookcase or dollhouse ($400)!


Next we’ll take a look at some notable new decor pieces!

House in a Bag from des Enfantillages

With just enough detail to identify it, the House in a Bag from des Enfantillages is a portable canvas for imaginary play. The house set includes two interlocking pieces of plywood and storage bag ($62). The family and furniture are sold separately ($35) or you can furnish it yourself. I’m thinking empty matchboxes, wooden spool tables…

My Modern Nursery #99: Fresh Violet Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

Last month we did pink, and this month Lullaby Paints challenged me to use a shade of purple. We went feminine with the pink, but I think I’ve taken purple in the most un-girly direction possible. Purple is last on the list of colors I’d choose in my own house, but I could definitely live with this scheme! I started with the Moonlight Bear art piece by Seventy Tree and things developed from there. We’ve got many more products and options that would fit in this space on our Pinterest board. We use Pinterest to collect our ideas and develop our designs each month and I highly recommend it for compiling inspiration for your own space.
