My Modern Guest from Coos & Ahhs

The very lovely and talented Amanda of Coos & Ahhs is pitching in today to inspire you while I’m on vacation.  She shares both decor and fashion ideas for boys and babies from her home base in Brooklyn, NY.  As a mom of two boys, I appreciate this rare boy-centered, or gender-neutral perspective.  If you’ve got boys or are expecting one soon, you’re going to have to start following Coos & Ahhs.

My Modern Nursery #27: Rich or Reasonable

I’m so excited about Kalon Studios‘ new Caravan Crib that I had to try out a nursery design using the crib with such beautiful, brightly colored rails.  Ikea has some colorful new cribs this year as well, so I made two versions of this room.  One retails for $4744 and the other is only $1557.  Which do you like best?
