I’m looking forward to these great new pieces from Ferm Living for spring. Royal blue and Rose are the highlighted colors for the season, and while it’s the pink for girls and blue for boys type of thing, when Ferm Living puts their spin on it, you don’t even notice.
There are new cushions, blankets, and three sets of house blocks.
You’ll be able to find these new kids pieces as well as the rest of the SS2015 collection in the US & Canada from Clever Spaces.
PhillUp is a cup and hook combination that attaches to the fridge. Your kids can get their own drink of water and then put the cup back so it’s ready to go for next time. The cups are BPA and PVC free and safe for the dishwasher.
You can encourage your child’s independence and free yourself from the chore of fetching drinks. This also solves my family’s problem of the kids leaving their cups all over the house. When they can’t find the cup they were using, they just take another one. Seriously, how do two boys use a dozen cups each day?!
Save yourself from my headache and back PhillUp on Kickstarter to get your hands on the first PhillUp hanging cups. They’re now available at the introductory pledge price of $8 for one, $15 for a set of two. There are other pledge levels that include additional Puj products and experiences so if you’re a Puj fan, go see what’s available!
The collection features a beautiful white play table and bent plywood chairs with either rabbit or bear ears. Both adorable chairs come in birch or walnut and can be customized with fun fabric Play Stickers that can be removed and reused.
I’d even just want a set of the stickers ($19) to play with!
The play table retails for $269 and the chairs are sold in pairs for $226.
The Play Collection goes perfectly alongside any other Oeuf collections but it’s a clean modern design that you can be happy to place in any living space.
When we announced Pantone’s new Color of the Year, Marsala, I immediately thought it may be difficult to find diaper bags in this particular shade for those who find it fun to stay on-trend with their baby gear picks. Surprisingly, I found a lot more than I had expected! Let’s take a look.
1- Oemi Baby Diaper Bag in Wine- $340
2- LeSportsac Large Weekender Handbag in Marsala Entwine- sale $110
3- TWELVElittle Allure Convertible Satchel in Plum- $230
4- TWELVElittle Allure Weekender in Plum- $310
5- TWELVElittle Allure Tote in Plum- $210
Oemi Baby’s bag looks so beautiful, and the LeSportsac would be the perfect travel bag; I’m going to look into that choice to have in the car and for quick trips. There is no question that TWELVElittle is going to be a heavy hitter in the popular bags category for gear this year.
If you’re not 100% committed to Marsala for the season, here are a few options that offer more of a pattern or hint of the hue.
6- timi & leslie Dawn Diaper Bag in Burgundy- $149
7- Skip Hop Duo Special Edition in Plum Sketch- $64
8- Tory Burch Convertible Nylon Baby Backpack in Cabernet- $375
9- Babymel Satchel Diaper Bag in Cherry- $85
10- Storksak Tania Bee in Burnt Orange- $210
11- Tory Burch Nylon Baby Bag in Cabernet- $395
12- Petunia Pickle Bottom Society Satchel in Plum Tart Cake- sale $226
Now… Drumroll please… If you have an expanded budget for bags (I would love that), here are my two personal luxury favorites for the season. I wish I could find these in person to run my hands over every seam — they’re gorgeous.
Surprise! I just found one more while writing this post, so I will add it here. I’ll have to keep this a growing list for the year.
15- timi & leslie Hannah Diaper Bag in Burgundy- $262.17
What do you think? Are you feeling this trend for winter? Do any of these diaper bags stand out as one you would like to throw on your shoulder immediately? Let me know if you find any others that were not included in this list, and stay tuned as I know a couple of companies will be launching a few more late in the season!

One thing I love about etsy, is that it makes products from all over the world available for easy shopping and purchase. Designs from anywhere in the globe will ship right to my doorstep through a familiar shopping platform.
First, the GOODY Rocking Horse from Slovenia comes in two sizes (large for $450 and small for $330 + about $70 shipping) and you can select brown, blue or gray.
From Emanuel Rufo Toys, the C03 Eco Friendly Wooden Rocking Horse is a beautiful wooden horse from Portugal. $110 + about $80 shipping
Finally, Ringo is a rocking rhino from Izugi in Israel. You can choose your favorite fabric for the sear cushion. $130 + about $65 shipping
These are great opportunities to have something really unique and special in the playroom.
With color changing LED, the thermometer shows whether the bath water is too hot, too cold, or just right. It features a suction cup for hanging when not in use.

As if Alia Grace Dolls aren’t cute enough on their own, their collaboration with Baby Jives Co makes them extra special. The beautiful pairs make spectacular gifts. Can’t you just imagine the sweetest little doll corner built around these?!
Your choice for $155.
Every day I see someone has repinned this wonderful image of these Swedese Wall-mounted Tree Coat Stands. The image comes from a beautiful house tour on decor8 but I did manage to find some US sources for these. The cheapest I found was at Century House Inc. at $530 for the small one and $665 for the tall one.
For some, the drama provided by these beauties might make it worth the cost, but I can understand that for most, $1200 is prohibitive.
Swedese also makes a free standing version of the tree coat stand, but the price of that isn’t any easier.
A less expensive alternative is the Little One’s Clothes Tree from P’kolino.
I know, it’s not quite the same look, but it is a cute little decorative coat rack nonetheless.
For a more grown up version, try the Adjustable Branch Coat Tree from The Container Store. $60
A more rustic version of the wall mounted Tree Clothes Rack is this one from Urban Outfitters from $98.
I also like the idea of using a simple tree wall decal and attaching wall hooks over the top.
Or even simpler, how about a washi tape tree with hooks?!
So, who’s inspired for some creative storage?
