Ferm Living Kids Spring Summer 2017

There is so much cool new stuff to show you from Ferm Living’s 2017 Spring/Summer Kids collection.

I’ll start with the big stuff, and work my way down from there. So last year, Ferm Living started to grow beyond home decor into furnishings, and this year the furniture has spread down into the children’s collection!

The Little Architect furnishings include a table, chairs, bench, desk and storage pockets (large and small) that attach to the desk or table.

In these furniture photos, you can also see the Braided Lampshades (Medium above and Tall below).

The Little Architect collection comes in 5 muted colors– Bordeaux, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Rose and Gray.


Shown with the chairs above is one of my favorite new pieces, the ABC Wall Deco. This is the most fun and kid-friendly woven wall hanging I’ve yet come across!

Also perfect for the nursery wall is this adorable Rabbit Mirror!

You may also consider the simple hanging Kids Growth Chart. It is available in Rose, Mint and Off-White.

If you like the Braided Lampshades, you’ll love the Braided Baskets as well.

I was excited to see the two new wallpaper patterns. Swan comes in Rose and Gray.

Terrazzo wallpaper is also available in Rose and Gray and can be used well beyond the nursery. And you thought Terrazzo was just for the floor!

There are lots of cuddly new textiles for spring. The Stripy Snake (blue, rose) and Blanket (blue, rose) make a perfect pair as decor and are wonderful to give as gifts.

If you like the Terrazzo pattern, you might love the Knot Bean Bag in Terrazzo Rose or Terrazzo Blue.

The beautifully textured Popcorn Bolsters (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) and Pillows (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) can be mixed in with any of the new kids bedding.

And speaking of bedding, last season’s Seaside and Party patterns are now available as bedding. Check out the Cloud Lamp in Dusty Rose as well.

If you love the Swan pattern, it comes in bedding as well! Choose the Rose or the Gray.

There are also more neutral Milkyway bedding patterns in Rose and Cream as well as solid color bedding that can be mixed in with your favorite patterns or used on their own.

Finally, to add to last season‘s Seaside and Party dining collections, you’re going to want to grab the Seaside

Ferm Living Seaside Dinner Mat

and Party Dinner Mats. These really round out the sets.

The new collection won’t be available until March and ships worldwide via their website. If you wait a little longer, you’ll find the pieces for US ordering on Clever Spaces.




Wood from the Hood Growth Chart

It’s been ages since we’ve shared a growth chart, but these beautiful pieces from Wood from the Hood are a timeless version that you’ll treasure for always. These measure from 18″ to 6’4″.

Found via pacifier where you can order the unfinished version for $50.

Growth Charts from Numi Numi Design

New from Numi Numi Design, these powder coated steel growth charts are off-the charts cool.  They’re among the few growth charts that are as functional as they are beautiful works of art.

As a Florida girl, I can’t decide between the Flamingo and the Alligator, but I’m sure most of you will go for the ever-popular Giraffe.  $200

Etsy Find: Interactive Growth Charts and Modern Art Prints by PaperRamma

With so many sweet growth chart options out there, it can be hard to decide which one is right for your child and your decor style.

I recently came across PaperRamma on Etsy and instantly fell in love with their beautiful nursery art prints and even more in love with their interactive growth charts in several colors and styles.

The growth chart ($55) gets filled out as your child grows. You can record more than your child’s height on this unique option.

There is a spot for all kinds of memories. Everything from milestones to a map for recording baby’s travels to specifics like birth date and eye color. This growth chart is like a baby book but it’s put on display in a lovely way.

The chart is customizable. You can pick the colors, customize with your child’s name, pick a world or US map and can pick almost anything to put at the top for design from flowers to a graphic that fits your nursery decor.

And while the growth charts definitely had my eye, I couldn’t help but share the Golden Slumbers Art print duo ($35). These prints come in the color of your choice and would make a lovely set above a crib. After all, what beats a Beatles quote?

And the Somewhere Over the Rainbow set ($52) would cover a larger wall as the rainbow moves from the first print through the second and into the third.

Another favorite option is the Here Comes the Sun set of two ($35).

And if none of these quite work for your room, one of the other art options from PaperRamma might just do the trick.

Growth Chart Decals by Miki Mottes

One of my favorite uses for wall decals is as a growth chart.  The vinyl wall decal growth charts from Miki Mottes are adorably illustrated and a lot of fun.  The Giraffe, Dinosaur, Eiffel Tower and Cake are just a few of the wonderful choices his etsy shop.

These decals retail for $50 but you can get 10% off with the discount code “BUYMODERNBABY”.  Learn more about Miki Mottes at his website.

Etsy Find: Personalized Growth Chart

As usual, when shopping for wooden teethers, I stopped at one of my favorite etsy shops, Little Sapling Toys.  I love giving their state teethers as gifts!  Today I was excited to find a new product in their lineup however.  If you’ve been reading along with me since the beginning, you might remember that for a while, I was slightly obsessed with growth charts.  It’s no surprise that Little Sapling Toys has come up with a beautiful version of their own.  The Personalized Growth Chart is a modern Maple yard stick with inlaid Walnut tick marks and your child’s name at the top.

This would make an incredible shower, baby or birthday gift that would be appreciated by both child and parents! $120

Growth Chart Wall Decal

Way back (two years ago) when this blog was in its infancy, one of the things I often posted about was growth charts.  In particular, I thought that one of the best uses for wall decals was as a growth chart.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen one that I had to share, but this Wee Gallery Growing Like a Weed Growth Chart from Blik is unique enough to pass along. $38
