New Mobiles from The Modern Baby Co.!

It’s been a while since we’ve seen something fresh from The Modern Baby Co. Does anyone out there remember when they used to do crib bedding?  But I’m so excited that they’ve come out with three more designs in their collection of laser cut birch mobiles.

Joining the Butterfly, Whale and Lion, are the new Owl, Elephant and Giraffe. $40 each

I hope this is a new start for The Modern Baby Co. and that we’ll be seeing more from them in the future!

If you hurry, you can get any of the mobiles on The Mini Social (until 3/6) for $22 each!!  Feel free to use my referral link if you haven’t joined yet.

Real Room Tour: Blue But Gender Neutral Modern Nursery

Jodie Okun of Jodie Okun Interiors (also the mother of twins!) designed this beautiful space for her good friends– and what lucky friends they are!

I love the color combination with the aqua blue and the persimmon orange of the notNeutral Season rug and the back of the bookcase.

Just a quick comment about the Jenny Lind Crib.  While it is in no way “modern,” I fully support anyone who loves the ultra-traditional Jenny Lind style crib.  The style comes from before the era of the sleigh style crib that drives me batty, so it’s a great choice for something affordable and that will give you an eclectic look.  I think I might have to start a pin board just to show you Jenny Lind cribs in more modern nurseries in case you still don’t believe me.

The reading corner here is cozy and bright, and the art wall around the changing area is totally wonderful.  You may have noticed that it’s all about art walls these days and Jodie has executed it perfectly.

Speaking of art, her daughter did the series of pig drawings that hang over the crib.  It would be a great idea to have older siblings contribute to a new baby’s room with a great project like this.  The mobile is Cyclephants from Flensted.

Since I know you’re going to ask, Jodie and her friend found the giraffe at Homegoods.  How come I never find anything cool at Homegoods (except in other people’s carts)?!

I love when there’s an inspiration board to share with a nursery tour.  It’s a great opportunity to show how these images translate into an actual space.  Jodie really brought her vision to life in this project.

Thank you to Jodie for sharing these wonderful photos and her creative design.  I look forward to seeing any nurseries you put together in the future.  Go ahead to Jodie Okun Interiors to see more of her work and read more about this nursery in her original nursery reveal post!

Crib Bedding Options from Carters

If you’re looking for fun and inexpensive crib bedding, Carters has a couple of new options for you to consider.

The crib sheet from their Bumper to Bumper collection features cute (but not cutesy) graphics and great colors.  The Safari Sky collection features a jungle motiff and is a good inexpensive option if you really want jungle animal bedding.

Just be careful not to go crazy buying lots of pieces from the collection.  I’d recommend getting just the crib sheets ($16 each) and then layering in other items that you collect to go with it.

Thanks to My Mom Shops for the info.

New From DwellStudio: Papier-Mâché Head

Taxidermy style trophy heads have been popular for a while now with cardboard, knit and other more modern and animal-friendly variations.  Now DwellStudio has come out with a brand new set of papier-mâché heads that would add a ton of fun and color to any nursery wall.  My favorite is the giraffe but I think you’ve at least got to go with a set of three (Giraffe, Gazelle and Sky Zebra and/or Petal Zebra).  They are $76 each and only available on

Hats off to MomFinds for beating me to this one!

Etsy Find: Vintage Team Guzzini Lucite Giraffe and Lion

If you would like the most chic nursery accessory ever, I found it today from thevintagesupplyco.  The lucite giraffe and lion sculptures by Team Guzzini are so fabulous, I find myself quoting Rachel Zoe, “I die.”– a phrase which usually makes me wince.

Giraffe Sculpture– $150
Lion Sculpture– $150

Get them before someone else does… At the very least, it’s a must have if you’re getting a Vetro Crib!
