Decor Favorites at the ABC Kids Expo 2014

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.

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

Pearhead also makes the cutest banks. Check out the wooden piggy bank with the bow!

Chloé Fleury

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,

ChloeFleuryNursery

but her 3D paper art has really stolen the show.

The Paper Bunny Kit and Paper Fox Kit are $40 each, but through this weekend you can take 15% off with the coupon code BYESUMMER15.

Summer 2014: Season of the Pineapple

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.

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.

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.

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 New Bath

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.

I’d also take a look at the Plush Animals ($18).  These are a nice big size that are great for use as decor.  In addition to the elephant and bird, there’s also an owl and giraffe.

Modern Crib Bedding at Target

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.

Bananfish Poppy set 2

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 set

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.

14694666_201308161632

Birds and flowers crib set ($99)

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.

14137994_120722043000

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

Bananafish Linden crib set ($99.99)

With three simple patterns, this blue, yellow and grey set is fun and simple.

Hot air balloon

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.

14310558_121216110000

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?
