My favorite is Oklahoma Animals. I love this collection of creatures and the wonderful colors.
The Earth’s Animals version is another great print the absolutely a great piece if you like purple and green.

Sometimes “minimalist” posters take things too far, and other times the don’t go far enough. This series of minimalist art prints from Obsessivision have it just right and in a beautiful soft palette of colors.
The Red Balloon (my favorite)
We featured Amber’s (the artist and designer behind Obsessivision) nursery nook last spring, so be sure to visit that as well.

While we may dream of handcrafting our baby’s first furniture and imagine it being passed down through the generations, this just isn’t reality for all but a few creative individuals. Fortunately, those with the time and ability can sometimes be found sharing their skills with us on Etsy. Every so often I scan the site to see if the woodworkers and furniture makers have created anything for their littlest customers. This time I’ve found two handmade walnut bassinets worthy of the most fortunate babies as well as their babies and their babies’ babies.
From Fine Woodworking of SC, this beautiful hand-sculpted curved walnut cradle will someday be in a museum. Until then (for $6000), it can be yours. You can admire your precious creation sleeping in this precious creation– at least for a couple months until they outgrow it.
A little more realistic is The Sleeper Walnut Bassinet from rydenDESIGN. Pull this beautiful bed into your master bedroom and you’ll always want to have a little one to occupy it. $800
This bassinet from Turner and Branch is made to order and can be customized with your selection of woods. The one shown below is Walnut and Ash. $395
Which would you choose? What about if price were no object?
The co-sleepers currently on the market are not the most beautiful bedroom accessories. I KNOW (based on my blog stats) that you all are looking for a better options. Unfortunately, there are some serious safety issues to consider when it comes to baby sleep arrangements (remember drop-side cribs?) so manufacturers tread very carefully when considering and developing products that support co-sleeping arrangements.
If you search the web, you can find numerous creative individuals have designed lovely co-sleepers for use by their own families, but for those of us who don’t have a wood shop or don’t even have the first clue how to approach a project like that, there are a couple etsy sellers who are sharing their skills and creations. Would one of these fit your bedroom decor?
From Old New House, the Little Mod Co-Sleeper Wooden Baby Bed ($550)
From Rosette Custom Furniture, the Cherry Sidecar Co-Sleeper Baby Bed Attachment ($319)
The big question is, would you be comfortable using one of these handmade creations?
There was a time when my grandmother would tell my sister and I the story of Little Red Riding Hood every night. We made story time more varied by asking her to change the color of the hood, but I admit red is my favorite anyway.
