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.

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

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

We visited with rouxroo last year, but their products are now available for purchase. There are decor pieces like the small canvases as well as great bold blankets, toys and accessories.


You can find these earth-friendly organic products on their website or at some great shops throughout North America.

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.

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.

New Toys Chests and Hamper from 3 Sprouts

Three new products are joining the 3 Sprouts family.  New on the Toy Chest are the Crocodile (in Florida we’ll pretend it’s an alligator) and Elephant.


You can also already find the crocodile on a Wall Organizer and Stroller Organizer,Elephant_Toy_Chest_1024_grande

And I’m digging the new Orangutan Laundry Hamper ($25).


It’s always fun to see when 3 Sprouts expands their collection.

Petit Pehr at Giggle

It’s fun to see most of the Baby & Kids collection from Petit Pehr available at giggle.  Their fun patterned sheets, pillows, blankets and storage pieces are an easy way to decorate and add fun color to a neutral space.

Rich or Reasonable: Building Bookcases

The Amsterdam cabinets from This is Dutch are spectacular, large, and guaranteed to add whimsy and drama to any space, but maybe the Brownstone Bookcase from The Land of Nod would do the trick in your home.

Building Bookcases: The Land of Nod vs This is Dutch

If the price difference doesn’t sway you yet, keep in mind that the $1300 price tag is for EACH cabinet and THREE are shown in the photo.  Either way, both cabinets are a lot of fun and a great way to store the mess behind closed doors.

Some affiliate links included.

Coming Soon: New Products from Oeuf at ABC Kids Expo 2013

Oeuf has some really cool new additions to its collections coming in 2014.

The first item that was getting a lot of attention was this beautiful toddler table and chair set.  I love the style of the legs.  The table will come with two chairs.  There are also two styles of chairs– with a plain straight back…

… or with bear or rabbit ears.  In the photo above you can also see Oeuf’s new fabric sticker collection that can be used to decorate the chairs, your walls or any other smooth surface that could use a silly face!

Oeuf will also be offering this new toddler bed as a less expensive alternative to the Classic Toddler Bed.

The amazing Perch bunk bed (which I’m obsessed with) will be available as a full size loft to better suit older children in need of more space.

And check out the new additional storage accessories.  This shelving just hooks over the bed frame.

And this cabinet can stand alone or be hooked to the bed as well.  I want one of these as a bench under Mr. 4’s window!

Thanks to Oeuf for the tour and I can’t wait to see these pieces come out.  I hope to own some soon!

Coming Soon: New From 3 Sprouts at ABC Kids Expo 2013

It’s always fun to see the 3 Sprouts collection in person, and play the “which animal is new?” game.

You can never have too many storage bins ($30) and my most recent favorite is the dinosaur.

3 Sprouts Bins

I was excited to find new toy boxes in the mix.  These are some of the largest containers offered at 3 Sprouts and are a great new addition to the collection.  I particularly love the whale.

The newest laundry hamper is the Swan and it’s already available online. ($25)

The stroller organizers have been a hit, and being from Florida, I hope to see the alligator out asap!



Thanks for the colorful visit 3 Sprouts!

Aurora Contempo Collection From Arm’s Reach Concepts

Arm’s Reach Concepts is known almost exclusively for their line of co-sleepers.  While they are the experts when it comes to functional co-sleepers (bassinets that attach to the side of an adult bed), the designs of their products thus far haven’t been quite blog-worthy.  Coming next month however, ARC is branching out in the the world of nursery furnishings and their first collection, the Contempo Crib and Changing Dresser are worth sharing and taking a look at.

The Aurora Contempo Designer Crib can be pre-ordered now and is expected to ship in October.  It is a 4 in 1 convertible that transforms from crib to toddler bed, daybed and a full-size bed (with additional conversion kits).  This new crib retails for $726.


To round out your nursery set, the Aurora Contempo Changing Dresser is available for $526.  After diapering days are over, the changer makes a good bookshelf or TV stand and the changer can be reused as a coffee table tray.


I hope this new style transfers back to their co-sleeper line.  What do you think of the new pieces?

Gorilla and Rabbit Storage Boxes from 3 Sprouts

3 Sprouts just debuted their newest animals- the Gorilla and Rabbit.  These cute creatures are featured on their ever useful Storage Boxes ($26).

Fill your Ikea Expedit with 3 Sprout Storage.  So far there are a total of 7 different animal Storage Box designs.

Top 5 New Furnishings from The Land of Nod for Fall 2013

One of my important stops over my vacation last week was my first visit to The Land of Nod store.  You may have seen some photos on my Instagram feed if you follow me there.  Obviously I’m a fan of their impeccable curated collection of goods and their new additions for Fall 2013 are no exception.

Here are my top 5 furniture picks from The Land of Nod for Fall 2013.

First and foremost are the Oslo Crib ($1400) and Dresser ($1500) by ducduc for The Land of Nod.  There are a few great color options for this set and I just adore it from the contrasting framed top down to the tapered legs.

Also part of the ducduc for Nod partnership is this elegant Verona Crib ($1600) and Dresser ($1500).  This comes in 4 chic color combos to dress up your nursery.

Acrylic furniture and storage is all the rage right now and the Now You See It Acrylic Book Cart ($250) is a perfect new way to store and display a colorful children’s book collection.

The Numbers Pouf ($100) is a fun room accent piece.  I’m always on the lookout for great new poufs and this is something just a little bit different.

And finally, on the border or furniture and decor we have The Land of Nod’s Four Story Wooden Wall Shelf ($150), which is a perfect place to display little collectible treasure that children tend to accumulate.
