My Modern Nursery #103: Frosted Veil, Black and Gold Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I’ve been playing around with ideas for decorating the house we’re moving into next month. We’re starting off with light warm gray walls throughout, so I loved working with this shade. Frosted Veil from Lullaby Paints is really close to the color in our new home and it’s a perfect neutral that’s really easy to use. In this glamorous modern nursery, the paint color is a background for black and gold.

We assembled an exciting combination of fun accessories for this space, but there are SO MANY MORE items on the Frosted Veil Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board including additional rug options, different lighting ideas and more art pieces to make this black and gold scheme work for you.

New From The Land Of Nod

Oh my.  I have come to get really excited about those days of the year when The Land of Nod (one of my favorite affiliates!) comes out with their new products for the season.  I can’t wait to share them with you.  At the same time I know I’m in for a marathon blogging session, because there’s SO MUCH I’ve got to post for you to see!  Here goes…

1) Furniture

This new low-rise crib made by El Greco Woodworking exclusively for The Land of Nod is an incredible new addition to their furniture collection and an excellent option for any nursery.  The crib is shown here in grey but also comes in white and white with espresso base and white with maple base.  They are all beautiful.  $900

I love the raspberry and azure Jenny Lind beds.  The fun colors really make it!  $549-$649

And the As You Wish Upholstered Bed is a simple design with a lovely curved headboard.  This can be upholstered in a number of different fabrics but the one shown below is pretty fabulous.  $899-$999

As You Wish Storage Benches are seating and storage in one.  Pick your color for $350.

2) Bedding

There a a few beautiful new crib bedding sets that I love including Not a Peep, In the Mix (pink and khaki), Counting Sheep, and Bazaar.

There are lots of cute new decorative pillows as well.

My favorites are the Freshly Picked Apple Pillow and the Head in the Clouds Pillow. $19 each

There is also a huge collection of new kids bedding but there’s too much to share, so just take a look.

3) Decor

I’m quite sure these Spell Ya Later Letters are going to be a huge hit.  The letters of the alphabet (about $3 each) are available in girl and boy colors– but you could totally mix and match them.  Then you buy a 3 yard shoelace ($4) and voila, you have yourself a super cool name banner.  Really thinking of getting this for my boys, and maybe for all the kids I know!

There are a few cute lamp shades and I can see the new pennant shade and woodgrain shade being super easy to integrate into fun modern nursery designs.

The new (faux) leather poufs would function as bright pops of color as well as a seat or ottoman. $79

I also really like these stacking floor cushions.  22″ for $29, 27″ for $39 and 32″ for $49.  These come in pink and blue.

One final thing I’ve got to share is the Dot Matrix Gumball Rug.  4’x6′ for $350.  We’ve been seeing this here and there on blogs over the past year, but now you can buy one too!

I hope you’re inspired and go take a look at all the stuff I skipped.  Kudos again to The Land of Nod for their excellent choices and always keeping it fresh.

Oeuf Snake Giveaway Winner!

You all have lots of great ideas for new Oeuf Goodies.  Sounds like a doll and a teddy bear would make great additions to the collection!  As a Floridian, I love one commenter’s idea for a stuffed alligator.  If it were even half as cool as this snake, I’d have to have one!

The randomly generated winner of Oeuf’s Snake is Shannon W. who loves the mask and tail sets and would like to see more of them!

Congratulations Shannon!  Your Oeuf Snake will be on its way shortly.

Now we gave away one of Oeuf’s Goodies, but there are lots of beautifully soft decor items in the collection.  I love all the pillows ($68): Ghost (with removable mask), Guitar, Apple (comes in other colors) and Pirate.

And their knit garlands ($56) are totally unique and fun.

Hearts, Flags, Clouds, Light Bulb

The other decorative Goodies that I really love from Oeuf are the Shadow Boxes.  The Hand Crochet Alpaca Sea Life and Hand Crochet Alpaca Butterflies are incredible art options that will last a lifetime.  They are just as beautiful and appropriate in the nursery as they would be in any part of a home.

Sets with 2 are $60, sets of 3 are $80 and the full sets of 6 are $120.

Ever since I ordered our Classic Oeuf crib 6 1/2 years ago, I’ve been a huge fan of Oeuf and I thank them for participating in our giveaway series!  Don’t forget that you can keep up with all the latest from Oeuf by follow them on twitter and liking them on Facebook as well.
