Modern Baby Gifts from Nambé

I have been known to put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to shopping for just the right gift, but for new baby or first birthdays, the baby and kids gift items from Nambé really hit the mark.

My favorite piece is the Kibo Piggy Bank. It’s a minimal and durable design by Alvaro Uribe done in a modern Stainless Steel and Acacia Wood combination.

The dining pieces make incredible gifts and you should take a look at the Kibo Toddler Flatware Set, Baby Dish and the Baby Cup as well as the Baby Nambé Feeding Set  (shown below).

Another really unique gift is the Belo First Tooth & Curl Box. Many parents save things like this, but this is the way to turn them into a really treasured keepsake.

My Modern Nursery #120: The House in the Night Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For this month I was inspired by the soothing poetry of Susan Swanson and etched illustrations of Beth Krommes in the Caldecott award winning picture book, “The House in the Night.” Even in the darkness, the light shines through this soothing bedtime story.

In only black, white and yellow, the images are rich and textured. Even though the pages are mostly black, a light glows through it all and there’s nothing to fear in the night.

With Perfect Gray walls, I’ve made the room a bit lighter than the book but used similar dark tones with yellow accents. There’s nothing to fear at bedtime in this glowing modern nursery.

Nursery Trend: Oversized Florals

The bold, girly trend showing up more and more in modern nurseries this year is oversized florals. This really does make decorating the nursery simple. You just keep things basic and let the walls do all the talking.

This Floral Pastel Nursery on 100 Layer Cake-let is incredible with one hand-painted feature wall.

Unique Felted Mobiles

There are theme mobiles and felt mobiles but Gulnara Kydyrmyshova does themed felt mobiles really well.

I love how the pieces hang off the large palm in the Pink Flamingo Mobile.

Owls and stars are common mobile motifs, but Gulnara’s Owls and Stars Mobile has a fresh and original look.

In addition to stackers, there are a few new puzzles to consider for your toy box. Fred and Frida Robot Puzzles have pieces printed on the front and with a chalkboard back. After toddlers have mastered the puzzles, they can get creative and design their own robots! ($30 each)
