Inke Wallpaper Silhouettes and Textiles

2 Jun

Out of the Netherlands, Inke bring these funky little wallpaper designs.  Each animal is handmade and comes in a do-it-yourself kit including the brush and eco-friendly wallpaper adhesive.  You can choose your animal’s wallpaper from a variety of vintage designs to make your room truly unique.  Great idea for a nursery! They also carry a nice range of textiles for children’s rooms.

Let’s hear it for bunting

15 May

Whether inside or out, as a permanent feature or just a way to seasonally spice things up, bunting can create a lot of visual appeal.

I used to always hang red, white and blue bunting from the upstairs deck at the house in Boston every 4th July. I thought it suited the house and the neighborhood so well and it’s fun to be patriotic.  

Here’s a little bunting eye candy to inspire.

Great online shop for baby stuff

3 Apr


I’m probably very behind on this but I just discovered this great website for baby gifts and nursery items called Fawn & Forest.  http://www.fawnandforest.com/ There are so so so many cute baby decor and gift ideas on this site.  I think it will be my go-to site for future baby gifts.  Lots of great stuff and all very design-y — like modern nursery furniture and a very trendy dollhouse with floor to ceiling windows and LED lights – how cool.

Letterpress Bunting

Here’s a fun little Christmas decor idea — some easy-to-make bunting using vintage images available  from Hello Handmade http://www.etsy.com/shop/hellohandmadepaperie

Last year, Molly and I made a similar bunting for Jessica’s baby shower. We scanned a swatch of the striped fabric that Jess was using for the nursery and then added a letter in Photoshop to each flag saying “Great Expectations” (which we thought was oh so clever given that Jessica and I became friends through the bookclub). It turned out very cute but sadly, I didn’t take a picture of it.  But bunting and papercraft are such a fun and easy way to spiff up the house for Christmas.

Funkified silhouettes and a fun poster

3 Dec

I came across this fun little silhouette duo a few weeks ago and saved it into a folder hoping that I’d remember to do a post on it because I thought they were so fun. I don’t actually know what they’re made of but they look like they’re silhouettes of mom & dad in a baby’s room.  I love the fun pattern incorporated into the art and the colors are so happy.

And speaking of happy colors, I love this heart poster.  It’s just simple and fun and could brighten up just about any room.  The simplest ideas are sometimes the best when it comes to making a room work and I think this is a case in point.
