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.

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!

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.

Woodland Mod Collection of Toy Boxes from Mod Mom Furniture

Mod Mom Furniture keeps rolling out new items and right now they’ve got three new toy boxes as part of their “Woodland Mod” line.

The Enzo Toy Box is perfect for kids or adult spaces and features a slow-closing lid.  It’s made from solid oak and stained Onyx. $400

The Wes Toy Box is part painted plywood and part Onyx stained maple hardwood.  It features a slow-closing lid as well and locking gray casters.  $525

Last but not least is the Gigi Toy Box made from sycamore quarter-saw hardwood.  The styling on this one is rather traditional but the straight lines are very modern.  $400

These three designs are available now, but keep an eye out because there’s more coming soon!

Hanger Buddiez: Cuteness in the Closet

My toddler son just recently started picking out some of his own clothes. We definitely spend more time in the closet since this new interest has come about. We received a sample of Hanger Buddiez from SillyBranz Global recently and the new hangers definitely made my son one happy boy in the mornings.

The hangers come in several styles including zoo animals, pets, farm animals and monsters. My 2-year-old son, who requested a cow themed 2nd birthday party, of course chose the farm animals as an instant favorite.

The hangers look great and colorful in his closet and have held up his clothes well. They are definitely the right size for his 2T and 24 month clothing but would’ve been too large for most of his under 1-year items.

Packs of 16 hangers retail for about $14.

Monster Storage Bins from P’kolino

Expected to be out May 1st, you may want to hold off on your storage bin purchase until you consider the new Monster Storage Bins from P’kolino!  They feature rope arms and a big zipper mouth.  I like that unlike most toy or laundry bins, these can be zipped shut. $30 each

Great job P’kolino!
