I know 2014 is coming to an end because Pantone just announced the next color of the year. For 2015, they’ve chosen Marsala, “a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul.” Sounds like a delicious way to start off the new year. If you’d like to add this “hearty, yet stylish” pinkish brown to your home or nursery, here are my best suggestions.
This was not an easy task, as wine shades aren’t typically used for kids products. While office chairs in shades like Marsala are plentiful, it may take a while before we find this tone in more higher-end design. Once we do however, it’s a really easy color to work with.

After furniture, my favorite booths at the ABC Kids Expo are full of decor pieces and design inspiration. These were my seven favorite decor booths and the great new products from some really cool and fun brands.
First were the adorable soft goods from blabla.
I’m crazy about the new Sun Pillow and the Flower Pillow. These are already available on blabla’s website.
Their two newest dolls are Marigold the Flower and Bluebelle the Flower, and they also had some fresh bedding patterns for preview.
Manny & Simon is another great source for modern decor and toys and their booth was fantastic.
I’m especially excited about their new line of banks.
The mini vehicle collections are sweet…
… and the Police Car is the latest edition to their line of push toy vehicles.
Finally, I think their new wooden teethers are going to be a huge hit.
Pearhead has a great selection of personal gifts items like frames and photo albums, but I thought their new line of photo milestone accessories is crazy cute.
My favorites were the Photo Prop Talk Bubble…
… and the Age Block Sets. These are fun to use and make great gifts.
You can find these earth-friendly organic products on their website or at some great shops throughout North America.
There were lots of exciting new products from Wee Gallery including these incredible Merino Baby Blankets,
and ceramic dining pieces.
We’ve recently become fans of Lucy Darling and I was excited to take a look at their product lines in person.
From the art prints to the monthly photo stickers and closet dividers, everything is as sweet as can be.
Last but not least, it was fun to see Petit Pehr‘s collection and new designs.
I’m in love with the adorable character pillows…
… and the new bug bins are adorable.
So many great designs for your storage needs.
There is no shortage of great new decor accessories for the modern nursery going into 2015! It’s always exciting.
You know I always love to keep you up to date on 3 Sprouts, so you’ve got to take a look at the new offerings shown at ABC Kids Expo 2014.
First, and most excitingly, a new product! Lunchboxes!! These insulated lunchboxes are cute as can be with a silver background. There are six lunchbox animals to start.
Two new bath caddies are the snail and lizard? iguana? chameleon?
Two new storage bins are the snake and the rhino.
And the shark and polar bear are the newest (and cutest!) bath storage pieces.
I should have introduced you to Chloé Fleury’s shop long ago, but since she’s having a moving sale this weekend, I thought now’s a good time to make up for the omission.
Her inspiring nursery was shared online far and wide,
but her 3D paper art has really stolen the show.
Pop & Lolli have just introduced a new designer collection of their wall decals and wallpaper featuring the work of popular childhood illustrator, Sarah Jane. I’ve followed Sarah Jane’s work for years and and thrilled with this great collection for Pop & Lolli!
The decals include On Parade,
as well as this Custom Family Tree.
While the decals are incredible, I think the wallpaper is even more stunning. The inspiring designs include Summer Night Lights,
and this incredible Balloons design!
Long a symbol of wealth and hospitality, the pineapple has been creeping into fashion and decor as we’ve been approaching this summer season.
Inspired by this perfect beauty that grew in our yard,
I’ve got a few great pineapple designs to consider.
Bottom Row: La Piña Print by Katie Gastley, Arteriors Arcadia Lamp , Little Woolf Fitted Crib Sheet in Golden Pineapple
Finally, my favorite pineapple accessory is this tropical pineapple bunting.
Unfortunately, you’ve got to be a little craftier than I am and make this one yourself with the free crochet pattern on By Hand London.

We’ve featured their paper mobiles before, but Frazier + Wing is branching out with new materials and shapes in 2014.
Don’t worry though, they haven’t given up on their colorful paper mobiles, they’ve just moved on to these 3D paper spheres.
I am a little sad that the older styles are gone from the website, but if they didn’t have anything new, I wouldn’t have had a reason to post about them again. Shop all the styles and colors on the Frazier + Wing website.
Looking for a banner but want something more permanent than paper and more substantial than fabric? These sweet custom name banners from Botanika Studio in Poland are the perfect personalized decor for your nursery.
These range from $20 to $29 depending on style and name length, plus $7 for shipping to the US.

As usual, Skip Hop has a plethora of items to add to their impressive lineup in the coming year. Here are just a few of my favorites.
The Giraffe Safari Wood Toy Collection is full of fun and affordable baby gifts. It includes the Crocodile Xylophone ($25), Nest & Play Blocks ($20), Stacking Animal Blocks ($15), Fold & Play Book ($10), Peek & Play Giraffe ($10), Spin & Play Rhino ($10), and the Flip & Play Turtle ($10).
These are already available on the Skip Hop website.
If you thought Skip Hop’s bath collection was already complete, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. They’ll be adding two new essentials. The Waterfall Rinser keeps sudsy water out of sensitive eyes and the Floating Bath Thermometer features a digital readout to ensure the perfect temperature in your tub.
Skip Hop’s Playspot has a new color scheme. The yellow and gray is a great new addition that will suit so many more modern nurseries and play spaces. In the photo, you can see one other addition to the Playspot line and that is the Funspot! Three inserts turn the Playspot into a spot for tummy time fun.
And your other tummy time option is Treetop Tummy Time Mat. As far as tummy time mats go, this one is pretty cute.

Target is a great place for almost all home items. I can happily get lost in the home section for hours. But honestly, the kid and baby sections are often lacking in good modern decor for the nursery or toddler bedroom. Particularly in store, I have a hard time finding anything that would work for our modern aesthetic in the nursery or toddler room.
With that being said, I was excited to come across several modern crib bedding sets on Target.com recently, all under $140 and most under $100.
Bananafish Poppy crib set ($99.99)
Black and white dots. Need I say more? The bold flowers mixed with the clean look of black and white makes this set a favorite of mine. While I do love the set, the less than modern crib is a turn-off and I would love to see this on my current favorite budget-friendly crib, the Babyletto Hudson.
Room 365 Globetrotter crib set ($69.99)
I have a thing for airplanes. This set is simple yet bold, exactly what I love in a bedding set for a child.
This sweet, yet still very modern, set features soft pink birds and flowers mixed with bold black making this set a stand out for me.
First Trike crib set ($99)
Bicycle, bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle. I love the clean bicycle print in fun color palette of orange, blue and beige.
Bananafish Linden crib set ($99.99)
With three simple patterns, this blue, yellow and grey set is fun and simple.
Room 365 Hot Air Balloon crib set ($79.99)
Hot air balloons plus orange dots plus chevron is a winning combination. This set could be playful and sweet in any nursery.
Bacati Baby and Me Giraffe set ($139.99)
The cute giraffe print plus a bold dot pattern make this a fun modern set.
Most of these sets are not available in store but are available online. Would you design your nursery around one of these crib bedding sets? Which is your favorite?
