The photo of this quilt immediately started inspiring all kind of nursery ideas. I think you’ll see what I’m talking about. From HandMeDown”s etsy shop, this 100% cotton quilt measures 41″ by 52″ and features a fun floral and a strawberry print.
Pick up the Hermelin crib at Ikea for $129 and the adorable petit poof from zid zid and you can see how things can get rolling.
If we DID have another child (I am certainly not saying that we will) we would have to put the two boys together to share a room. In this house, with the small bedrooms we have, that would mean we would need a bunk bed. After seeing this post ->stacked<- from Minor Details, about the products from ASPACE, I had to put together this Shopping Guide.
So these first two are from ASPACE in the UK– sorry!
The Coco Bunk Bed and the Farringdon High Sleeper:
Argington has the Uffizi Bunk Bed.
DucDuc has the Austin Bunk Bed and Alex bunk or loft.
Nurseryworks have the duet bunk bed.
Room and Board has the Moda Bunk and Riley Bunk.
Ikea has a few of lofts that you can add beds under.. Stora and Morrum are the nicest.
If you haven’t looked at P’kolino’s website lately, you need to visit it. They have recently expanded their product line and there are so many fun and fabulous things including toys and art supplies. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about more of their offerings in the future.
For the time being, I couldn’t ignore their kid sized seating options and added my favorites to buymodernbabyseats.
The Little Reader is available in blue, green, orange, purple and red. It is made of high-density foam and upholstered in faux-suede. The seats are light and easy to move around and feature pockets to hold favorite stories. They retail for $70. ($63 through my amazon affiliate link) There is also a larger Little Sofa/Sleeper for $98. ($88 through my amazon affiliate link)
The Little One’s Table and Chairs set is a great play and art area for toddlers. It retails for $140 for a table with two chairs. ($125 through my amazon affiliate link!) You can also get chairs separately for $33. They are available in Orange/Natural and White/Natural. I added this set in white to My Modern Nursery #15.
My niece recently had a birthday, and while I live far away and don’t have the funding to redecorate her room for her, if I could, this is what I’d imagine for her. My inspiration was the photo prints and I built from there. There is a hint of a jungle theme but I had to throw in the bunny lamp for the fun and the colors of it. If you can find something as fun and funky to replace it with please do share!

Part two of my reader’s request is a room for her four year old son. He likes his ice blue walls and has a light color twin bed. He, like his baby sister, already has Play Spot tiles from Skip-Hop so I started with that as a base and worked my way up. He loves his Dr. Seuss sheets (I love ’em too! very cute and fun) but I couldn’t help replacing them with Dwell Studios Chocolate Dots set. I just love they way they work with the tiles (sorry :-/). Storage is of great concern in this room as well and I’ve included storage options in as many ways as I could. As in his sister’s room, a custom closet could go a long way. Bins, baskets and buckets in brown, blue, gold or green will work great in this room and of course getting rid of excess clutter is of upmost importance (as I must keep telling myself as well).
