It seems that everything Joy Cho touches turns to gold (sometimes literally!). With her graphic design background and through her mega-popular blog, the Oh Joy! brand has just exploded. From early designs like the Hygge & West Petal Pusher wallpaper to her current party collection at Target, it’s been exciting to watch the collaborations she’s developed over the years. Now with the new Oh Joy! for Nod collection, it’s clear to see that there’s just no limit to the goodness we can expect from Joy.
There are two bedding designs– Pattern Party and…
I like that the pieces mix and match easily between the two so there a lot of room to take the patterns and create your own unique look. My least favorite parts of the bedding are the crib quilts, but without them I really love the sheet and skirt combinations. The sets have matching changing pad covers as well as toddler sheet sets and twin versions.
As part of the Oh Joy! for Nod Collection, Joy curated an art collection for the Nod Institute of Art. Mix and match your favorite art pieces for the perfectly lovely and coordinated gallery wall.
In addition to the bedding and art, one of the most amazing parts of the collection are these lamps…
There’s also this giant Dotted Glow Floor Lamp that would add a stylish glow anywhere in your home…
The Pinwheel Rug is a colorful statement,
I love how you can just pick and choose your favorite pieces throughout the collection and you’ll come out with a perfectly decorated whimsical and eclectic space that will be totally blog-worthy. Let me know if you try it!

I love these colorful, modern, organic cotton quilts from Bunch & Rosa. They’re just as perfect for wrapping up your little one as they are hanging on the wall as art.
There are a few designs with a more tame color scheme, so check those out as well. The quilts are handcrafted in North Carolina and retail for $150 to $250.
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.

Aren’t these screen prints from KLTworks sweet?! I’m a big fan of Kristin’s thread drawings, so these colored serigraphs of her original animal images are a wonderful addition to her etsy shop. Of the Penguin, Raccoon, Deer, Swan, Rooster and Blue Footed Booby Bird, which is your favorite? Or would you prefer the whole collection?
Each of the above prints retails for $30.
I’m also scanning my walls to find a home for this Heron Serigraph. They’re equally at home in Kristin’s Pacific Northwest as they are around us here in Florida!
This limited edition print retails for $60 and there’s also a version with two birds.
This Kickstarter project is nearly there so get in on this one asap! The Tangram States Poster by Midnight Umbrella is a colorful and fun US map with the state shapes made up of only squares, triangles and parallelograms.
Choose an 24″ x 36″ poster with a $29 pledge or add an additional smaller limited edition 18″ x 24″ version for a $49 pledge. For just a $3, download the special edition wallpapers for your desktop, tablet or mobile device!
For more tangram fun, I highly recommend Tangoes Jr. for your toddlers and preschoolers. It’s excellent because the shapes are magnetic and everything fits into the hard plastic case. We’ve had this for years and it’s still fun!

There’s an alphabet that’s perfect for any nursery space. Here’s my latest handpicked collection of alphabet art prints and posters.
I love the colors and illustrations on this Rubber Stamp Alphabet Print from Lisa DeJohn.
Science and space buffs will go crazy for the Space Alphabet Poster from Fifty Five Hi’s.
It’s a little more cartoony, but this English Alphabet Poster from Pukaca comes in a few nice color combinations.
With more neutral colors, this Animal Alphabet Print from Wetpaint Art is full of the most creative illustrations.
And if you want something minimal and with graphics only, this poster from Confettie Love might be just the thing.
Is an alphabet print part of your nursery design?
I keep up with my favorite TV shows on Hulu while I work at the computer, and every so often I spot some of our favorite things in my favorite shows. Last week’s episode of Modern Family featured some Deglingos (quirky plush toys) quite prominently.
I also spotted a print of Monsieur Hulot Mon Oncle by Matte Stephens in an upstairs hallway.
Anyone else a Modern Family fan?

My favorites are this series of silkscreen prints by Luzelle van der Westhuizen.
Shown are “Deer“, “Mouse“, “Sheep” and “Whale“. There’s also “Swallow“, “Bigger Boat“, “Mountain Cabin” and “Polar Bear“. Some of them come in other color combinations and they can be found on cushions as well as apparel items.
I’m also a fan of the “Love” prints. Keep these in mind as Valentine’s Day approaches.

I’m a long time fan of the ladies of Ampersand Design Studio but I was sad when their alphabet prints weren’t available in their etsy shop anymore. I understand that after a few years, old designs are likely to be retired, but these were really good– like staples in my mental list of alphabet posters. So I was overjoyed when I discovered the designs (and more) are now available from Oopsy Daisy, a terrific source for art for kids.
