P’kolino Clothes Tree, Green– $110

My Modern Guest from Spearmint Baby

Shari, from the must-read blog Spearmint Baby, took care of the red, white and blue for me this week while we’re celebrating summer and Independence Day in Colorado with family this year.  Nursery inspiration is just the tip of the iceberg on Spearmint Baby.  There’s so much more to read and explore on her amazing site.  Thanks Shari!

Red, White and Blue in Your Nursery

Hi Buy Modern Baby readers! It’s Shari from Spearmint Baby & I’m super excited to be guest posting today while Esther enjoys some quality family time on her vacation.

Since it is the week of the 4th, I’m sharing a fun dose of RED, WHITE, & BLUE today! Wouldn’t red, white, & blue be a fun/unusual decor theme for a gender neutral nursery? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a nursery decorated in these colors before, have you? If you prefer just a small dose, there are so many cute red and blue accessories/accent pieces that would be fun to mix into a white nursery.
