Social media is abuzz with excitement over Target’s latest nursery offerings from celebrity designer, Nate Berkus. His home decor accessories have already been offered at Target for several years, but now, inspired by his daughter Poppy, this is the first time that we can enjoy a line specifically for the nursery.
Target really makes it easy with a full line of coordinated accessories including crib bedding and blankets,
decor pieces, a nightlight,
and even wall decals.
You can already find these items in stores or order them online at Target.com for delivery this week.
The “eco-chic modern teethers & toys” from LexyPexy are creative gifts for tiny hipsters, mini moguls and budding fashionistas.
Baby’s fashion accessories may be your aspirations, but you’ll love seeing them enjoy the most luxe teethers around like the Ava (Chanel handbag), the Everly (Birkin bag), the Sophia (a Céline handbag) or the Wren (Chanel flats).
Pick your favorite or favorites and one day you’ll tuck these into baby’s memory box as a permanent treasure.
shopping guide: bird birds chicken flamingo parrot plush plushie puffin rooster stuffed
leave a comment
January 5th is National Bird Day, which reminded me of the awesome bird plushies I was admiring at Ikea last week.
Part of the ÖNSKAD collection, this colorful Rooster for $4 will be their partner in playing farm.
The pink Flamingo is a Florida favorite so I may have to snag one for $7 on my next Ikea run.
This “clown of the sea”, the Puffin, makes an adorable friend for $5.
And finally, the Parrot is a beautifully detailed soft toy for $5.
These are some of the most lovely stuffed animals I’ve seen at Ikea and I was truly tempted to grab them all.
Also this National Bird Day, help preserve bird habitats and consider donating to the National Audubon Society.
A Blabla doll is a must-have in any modern nursery, so if we expand that logic, let’s say that these Blabla board books are going to be a must-have for your baby’s first library. With three titles by blabla Kids co-founder Florence Wetterwald, I think you’ve got bedtime reading covered. Given with a knit doll, you’ve got a really incredible gift as well.

We’ve had a great time this month exploring how to use Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 in the modern nursery so of course I had to try Greenery out as a wall color in preparation for the new year. I look forward to adding a lot more green into my own home this coming year and so far I’m off to a great start with new house plants!
Lullaby Paints has a custom wall color option that allows you to specify any paint shade while still enjoying non-toxic Lullaby Paints and avoiding dangerous chemicals, so it’s easy to match any Pantone shade. This year however, I found that Lullaby Paint’s Green Gone Wild was remarkably close to “Greenery”– so close that I’ve found representations of Greenery” that are further off from each other than from the shade I’ve chosen below.
Do not be scared to try a rich green shade on the walls. I’ve had a bright green room for one of my kids and loved it the entire 7 years we lived in the house. If such a saturated color seems overwhelming, try painting just one accent wall. Remember that kids will outgrow the nursery after just a few short years so it’s a great place to have a lot more fun with the decorating! You can always change things up as the kids get older.

I’ve been waiting all month for Pantone to announce their Color of the Year for 2017 and finally this morning they shared that Greenery is the tone to look for in the upcoming year. I’m so excited for this bright and hopeful shade of green to inspire the next 12 months!
As they describe it, Greenery is:
“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”
