Etsy finds: Nursery Art from Leo Little Lion

We are in the transition period between our nursery and new toddler room right now with our little guy. I am on the hunt for a few new things to add to his updated big boy room and I came across some adorable and imaginative prints from Leo Little Lion on Etsy.

With art ranging from bold sets of animal prints to personalized art and even wall decals, this shop stood out to me.

This Royal Safari Set ($75) comes with four prints and your choice of colors. I love the clean bold look of these prints.

The whimsical yet modern tree and bird wall decals (prices vary) are fantastic and would make a huge impact on the crib wall of a nursery or on the blank wall in our toddler room.

Real Room Tour: Finn’s Nursery by Sissy + Marley

The talented ladies at Sissy + Marley have put together another dreamy modern nursery.  Completed in their signature style, baby Finn’s nursery is crisp, clean and full of versatile pieces that will grow with him.

This gender-neutral space is sophisticated enough to blend with the adult areas of the home, but the animals (and giraffes in particular) add enough fun for Finn to enjoy.

The Little Darlings Prints from The Animal Print Shop are as cute as can be.  Every time I visit the site I start looking around the house for empty wall space.  I could look at those sweet animal faces for years and years, I’m sure of it.

Unfortunately, this faux taxidermy elephant head from Anthropologie is no longer available, but this trend is so widespread that if you were looking to achieve a similar look, I’m sure you could come up with an alternative that you love.

I’m a big fan of white on white textures and I think it’s done really beautifully in this space without being monochromatic.  The wood tones (and of course some of the toys) are the pops of color that keep the space from looking cold.

Finally I’m a little envious of anyone with a chalkboard wall.  The possibilities are endless.

Thanks to Sissy + Marley for sharing these incredible photos!  There’s a lot of inspiration here.  Check back tomorrow for more information on how to re-create this look in your own home.

Animals Playing Sports by Liz Starin

One cool think about Kickstarter campaigns is that you can help an artist or designer produce their work and then be one of the first ones to get it!  You might want to clear some space on your walls for these bright and whimsical posters of animals playing sports by Lize Starin.

For a $45 pledge, you can choose an 18″ x 24″ poster.

With 9 days to go, this project is close to fully funded already, so you can feel confident that the it will go forward and you’ll be getting the poster you want.  I’m partial to the swimming giraffe!

Real Room Tour: Tori Spelling’s Nursery for Little Finn

I love when celebrity nurseries are full of products and ideas that we can all purchase or emulate.  In this, Tori Spelling’s fourth (and my favorite) nursery, she and her longtime friends Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (aka: The Guncles) put together a space for Finn that looks “collected” rather than “decorated.”  This isn’t a space full of custom furniture and built ins.  You can really achieve this stylish look in your own home without hiring a decorator and a carpenter.

Tori was inspired by a vintage giraffe figurine that she spotted at a flea market early in her pregnancy.  She decided to execute the giraffe theme in a modern regency style with vintage touches.  Because of some unexpected complications during the pregnancy, Tori oversaw the details of her little one’s nursery from a hospital bed.

The Regency Crib and Savannah changer from ducduc nyc define the modern regency style and are the foundations of this glamorous nursery.

The bold turquoise and gold walls are a dramatic backdrop.  Amazingly, this look was achieved with Tempaper‘s Marrakesh Honey Jade temporary wallpaper.  The Guncles discovered the pattern and Tori’s husband Dean hung in her hospital room for her 2 1/2 months stay.  It was such a part of her and Finn’s journey together that she had to use it in his nursery at home as well.

The beautiful orange Beckett dresser from SPI Baby adds a great pop of color in the room and is a perfect home for a collection of vintage (and modern) giraffes.

On the changer you can see a custom orange ChangePad from Nook and Finn also enjoys a Pebble mattress.  Of course the Ubbi diaper pail is orange to match as well.

The comfy vintage looking rocker from Anthropologie happens to be named “Finn” so Tori took this as a sign that it was the perfect chair for her little boy.

Tori and the Guncles trolled Etsy and eBay for all the vintage giraffe artwork and figurines that appear throughout the room.  I’m kinda jealous of the awesome giraffe collection they gathered together!

In addition to some fancy furniture pieces, this nursery, like so many of yours, includes DIYs, crafts and sale finds.  Tori made the rug by sewing together some vintage place mats from an estate sale.  The yellow bookshelf was a yard sale find that Finn’s older siblings helped paint to match his chair.  Tori worked with a friend who taught her how to macramé to make the mobile with paper mâché giraffes.

Congratulations to Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott on Finn’s safe arrival.  He’s a lucky little boy to have his special space and loving family to come home to.
