I’ve been waiting for these new collections of Stuf to come out and here they are–
The Circus Stuf collection (Elephant, Ringmaster, Lion, Clowny)…
and the Robot Stuf (Green V26, Yellow 8, Blue X3, Red V8.2) collection…
My little one wants all the robots!
They’ve also updated their Bird Stuf with the new Owl and Greenbird.

“Contemporary wallpaper for the modern child”? Yup, Lopoloup has got my number. Just get a look at their designs and you’ll be sold too. We’re talking show-stopping inspiration here. Loboloup’s papers are hand screened with eco-friendly water-based inks and made in the USA. How can you resist?

Patrick Hruby is a young artist who is making a big splash. His bright and bold graphic works are just so rich and fun that I can’t get enough. Appealing to both kids and adults, we’re going to be seeing a lot from Patrick. Let’s start with these:
From blik, the Imaginary Castle decal comes in 3 foot wide ($45) and 6 foot wide ($110) sizes. Let your imagination go from there.
Patrick has done a number of books with Ammo Books, including this stunning board book, ABC Is For Circus.
There’s also a beautiful Patrick Hruby Memory Game that goes along with the book.
And if you still need more, how about these colorful glasses. They’re a bit more sophisticated than the Burger King collectible glasses we used when I was a kid.
I’m inspired to add more color to my life. You?
My great love for the blog with two cats is no secret. Lauren’s posts have been featured at least three times in my “links to love” and I’m grateful today to share her talents and creativity with you. You’ve probably already seen her daughter Violet’s nursery as it was featured everywhere under the sun (and deservedly so!). I’m excited to have Lauren filling in for me today. Hopefully my family vacation isn’t as much of a circus as this fun mood board! Just add your favorite crib, dresser and rocker and you’re good to go.

I’m so excited to share this gorgeous boy’s nursery with you. It has such a unique eclectic feel where there’s history and personality, yet it’s completely clean and modern at the same time.
Starting with Oeuf’s Sparrow crib in Espresso finish, you can see a modern heirloom in the making. The rag style rug is country and casual, but in this space it adds warmth and texture. The felted wool mobile from Sqrl & Bee Studio on etsy is adorable with the little hedgehogs!
I’m loving using antique or traditional storage furniture painted in bright, unexpected colors, and this dresser is topped perfectly with the polka dotted changing cover. The artwork in the room, the Notre Dame Football posters, and the Chicago poster obviously have a personal connection.
The caned bentwood rocker is a stunning focal point in the room. It is made totally modern with the red side table and Tord Boontje Garland Pendant (which looks ultra-expensive, but isn’t!).
Thank you Kari for allowing me to share your photos of this space. You did an absolutely incredible job with the nursery and it’s a room I’m sure that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.
(If you would like me to feature your nursery here as well, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org)
