It’s rare (actually nearly impossible) to find a crib mobile that is cute and modern but also has all the bells and whistles of the battery operated versions.
In addition to this Cloud design, there’s also the Safari version, but I like this one best.
Crib sheets are $55 each.
Illuminated, they have the look of lighting in a storm cloud, one of those spectacular sights you get to experience maybe a couple times a summer for a few seconds at a time. The clouds come in two sizes for $73 – $95 each. An array of three clouds is pictured above.
Formerly known as Flink, KidWild is re-branded, refreshed and full of new modern organic kids bedding options.
Crib sheets like this Trees pattern retail for $46.
Halfway through April already?! It’s true though, we’ve really started having some rain around here lately. Ahhh, who doesn’t love a good rain shower?

With darker tones and a masculine flavor, I wasn’t surprised that this baby boy’s nursery was created for a first time, single dad. With dark wood floors and trim throughout the house, Amy Sklar had her work cut out for her when looking for a way to add some fun and light to the space.
Amy explains, “If we had started painting out the trim to make it lighter to work with the majority of the nursery bedding on the market, it would have really impacted the continuity with the trim and floors in the rest of the house, so we set out to find a bedding that would have the sweetness that the client wanted, but also work with the fixed dark elements of the house.”
The bedding she found, Ferm Living’s Mountain Friends, achieved the perfect tone and tied black and brown in with light blue. Amy used Farrow & Ball’s “Parma Gray” on the walls and the amazing wispy clouds were done by decorative painter Olivia Raeburn.
Apparently Amy reads BuyModernBaby too, so it’s no wonder 😉
In addition to his nursery, this lucky little boy enjoys playroom perfection as well. With an Expedit full of Ugly Dolls, the play table that’s on my personal wish list, and some colorful art and accessories, this room will be fun and functional for years to come.
Thanks for sharing the photos of this incredibly dramatic yet super sweet nursery and the sophisticated but fun playroom, Amy! You do amazing work.

Sharpen your pencils, you’re going to be adding lots of Ferm Living to your wish list. Their fall 2013 catalog came out today and my head is spinning with the possibilities. Here’s a taste of what’s new for kids this season. It will all be available shortly.
The new kids patterns this season are Kite and Cloud. You can find them as wallpaper and bedding in two different colors. Here you can see the Kite wallpaper in rose/mint/aubergine/wine with a cloud lamp and one of the new kids pillows.
Pair the character pillows with your choice of Dots cushions or use them on their own.
Finally, the new Kite Mobile is adorable and kinda ties the whole new collection together.
Are you going as crazy for this collection as I am?!
The Airplane and Clouds Mobile, the Birds on Branches, Bus Car Bike, and Cloud and Rain Drops Mobiles are all $39. There are three other mobiles currently from Trendy Peas– the Deer Fox Bunny, the Flock of Birds and Stacked Owls.
As far as themes and subject matter go, I really love the Airplane and Clouds Mobile and the Bus Car Bike Mobile because there isn’t anything simple and modern to rival them. We’ve got owls and birds and other animals, but these really clean white transportation themed mobiles are something different to keep in mind.

March will be roaring in at the end of the week so I want to be sure you have plenty of time to order a selection of Easter Bunnies from Cecil & Clyde.
But that’s not all you can find in Margaret’s etsy shop. My favorite selection from Cecil & Clyde is the Sun and Cloud Pillows. This cute set is available with either blue or pink piping, or you can request a custom color.
And there’s a whole variety of cute animals in different color and fabric combinations that you should definitely take a look at. There’s bound to be something the suits your nursery perfectly like these Elephants, Sheep, Whales and more.

Here are a few great cloud posters. I love clouds as a theme. They’re art and science and emotion all wrapped up in something we get to see most every day.
