Joining the Family: Welcome Our New Sponsor 41 Orchard

Today I’m happy to introduce you to a wonderful new sponsor of our work here at  It’s a thrill for me to see the pretty little ads running along the side of the page with the opportunity to explore all their great products just a click away.

I have only recently been introduced to 41 orchard and am really impressed with their line of beautifully designed modern wall stickers (aka decals).  Coming to us from Australia, the fabric decals from 41 orchard have a style all their own.  The Australian dollar converts to about $1.04 here in the US and $1.05 in Canada, so the prices you see aren’t too far off and I consider their shipping to be quite reasonable (Australia wide: $6.00, North America & Canada: $10.50, New Zealand: $9.00, UK & Europe: $11.00, Asia Pacific: $9.00).  Find them on Facebook.

Please be sure to visit and support our sponsors.  We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.

Real Room Tour: Modern Bird Inspired Nursery

Taryn, of the blog Design, Dining + Diapers, designed this gender neutral nursery around birds and trees to create a peaceful space for her little one.

The birds and trees decal combination is a very popular, and wonderfully impactful, focal point.  Taryn fell in love with the Madison Crib from Eden Baby, and I’m surprised that this is the first time I’ve seen this crib in a nursery.  I actually photographed it last year at ABC Kids Expo and think Eden Baby designs are an interesting option at a reasonable price point.

The birdhouse in the corner is an adorable detail in the room.  It was a craft store purchase that was spray painted white.  Who knew those craft supplies could look so chic?

Now, I haven’t been to Pier 1 for a long time, so I had no idea that they sold cute plush toys like the gray owl!  He’s totally awesome, and the bird is perfect in this room as well.  You can get one of the bird pillows from The Land of Nod.

The most wonderfully original idea in this room is the birch branches that Taryn picked up at a craft store and uses as a nightlight.  Functional and beautiful!  And the frames are custom made fabric art.

The biggest splurge in the nursery was the Charleston Upholstered Convertible Rocker from Pottery Barn Kids.  It looks perfect in this comfy reading nook.

Notice the little extra branch detail by the window… so cute!

Finally, the mobile was a DIY project and ties the entire space together.

Thank you so much Taryn for sharing the photos of this sweet room!

Colorful Graphics from Patrick Hruby

Patrick Hruby is a young artist who is making a big splash.  His bright and bold graphic works are just so rich and fun that I can’t get enough.  Appealing to both kids and adults, we’re going to be seeing a lot from Patrick.  Let’s start with these:

From blik, the Imaginary Castle decal comes in 3 foot wide ($45) and 6 foot wide ($110) sizes.  Let your imagination go from there.

Patrick has done a number of books with Ammo Books, including this stunning board book, ABC Is For Circus.

There’s also a beautiful Patrick Hruby Memory Game that goes along with the book.

And if you still need more, how about these colorful glasses.  They’re a bit more sophisticated than the Burger King collectible glasses we used when I was a kid.

I’m inspired to add more color to my life.  You?
