I admit that Winnie the Pooh is generally the opposite of what the modern nursery world is all about, but today I’m going to make a few exceptions.
I took my boys to see Winnie The Pooh yesterday afternoon and was reminded just how cute, charming and innocent the world of Winnie the Pooh is. Having read the books to them (and of course myself as a child), I felt like I had already seen the movie. It was like a brand new pair of shoes that’s comfortable from day one.
In honor of this new modern classic, I will officially be falling in love with Winnie the Pooh all over again.
Start with your very own Pooh bear and a set of the books by A. A. Milne. The modern Pooh Bear is the Organic Cotton Eco Plush. You can get an organic Pooh as well as his friends Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore from Giggle for $25. Even more importantly, every nursery should also have a complete Pooh Library. These are timeless classics that will be passed down through the generations.
If you’d like to take it a step further and add the world of Pooh to your decor, you’re going to need these Winnie the Pooh cushions from Atsuyo Et Akiko. This is one of the most delightful Disney collaborations I’ve ever seen. (first spotted on Paul & Paula!)
Finally, because I am one of the biggest Lego Duplo fans around, you can’t go wrong with the Lego Duplo Winnie the Pooh sets.
My 5 year old wants to get the Lego sets for his little brother for the holidays. I’m pretty sure he’s going to make sure his brother shares.
Have you seen the new movie yet?
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may have spotted one of these pillows before (My Modern Nursery #15). They are so adorable that I thought they deserve a little extra attention.
Visit Amy’s etsy shop to see the bird, owl, rooster and cow as well.
One of the reasons I added buymoderndecor to my buymodernbaby guides was so that I could share the collections by ferm living. I’ve recently added their kids pillows to the list. These fun pillows fit with some of the most popular modern nursery themes and color palettes.
Okay- there’s a lot more but you get the idea. See their entire collection at ferm living. They also have wallpaper, wall decals, textiles and toys to coordinate with the pillow collections.
Don’t be afraid to look at their adult pillows as well. They may start in the kids’ rooms but migrate on to yours!
I’ve shown you plenty of alphabet posters, but if you want to get up close and cuddly with your ABCs, here’s your chance! This ABC Animals Deluxe Pillow ($38) from mymimi’s etsy shop is too cute to not add to your cart.
The ABC pillow is by far my favorite but there are so many adorable items to choose from. These cuddly characters are great for babies, kids and even teens (and their parents!).
Some of my favorites include:
I found these lovelies on flickr and traced them back to etsy. Carla of FabLAB Atelier makes these beautiful dolls in Portugal and if you’re ever in Ericeira, be sure to visit her shop. Thanks to etsy however, you can order these right from your desktop!
Giraffe Chocha Doll– $48
Donkey Chocha Doll– $74
Chocha Dolls– Choose your style or have one custom made- $61
I have to admit I just got lucky and spotted these on etsy’s front page under handpicked items.
Jane Foster’s etsy shop is filled with Scandinavian style screen prints and cushions made with fabulous vintage fabrics. These bright prints and patterns are really inspiring. I’ve added this shop to my favorites so I can see what she’ll come up with next. You can also see what she’s up to on her blog.
My top favorites are these screen printed designs. They measure 14″ square and zip along the bottom for $37.
Jane make a variety of these cat cushions with screen printed faces and bodies made with vintage fabric. These sell for $21.
The vintage fabric pillows range from $22 to $50 depending on the fabric.
