Nursery: Set the Tone

Next up: the baby’s room. I did a posting on nurseries a little while back, but here are some rooms I find inspiring. Now if only I could keep our baby’s room so neat.

Below: I love this nursery, care of Covet Garden. I am also thrilled to see some great online magazines now on the scene – this one in my own backyard. Yay.

Below: If you have a nice crib, the rest of the room seems to come together. And the Leander crib is seriously nice. The price is steep, but if you figure it can be passed on to siblings and turned into a toddler bed as well, you might just talk yourself into it.

Below: Photos care of Coochicoos. Is the top one perhaps on ad for Oeuf? Not sure – but it does look nice. I’m still not tired of their furniture.

Below: Okay, not everyone can splurge on a Rug Company rug (or an Oliver Yaphe for that matter) – but check out how they make these entire rooms! Photos and furniture care of DucDuc.

Double The Fun

I’m a proud new Auntie! Twice over, in fact – and not even from twins. Both of my sisters had babies in the past week. Little Molly was born on the 20th and my nephew Charlie came a week later on the 27th. I am so excited. In honour of their arrival, I wanted to dedicate the next few posts to kids related stuff.

Here’s a start with some gorgeous looking nurseries and kids rooms.

I’m drawn to grey walls for kids rooms. Here’s another example of how it can really work in a darker shade. Photo care of Bloesem Kids.

For slightly older kids, here are some inspiring designs

I love the BDDW rug featured below. This room is a great example of how to add some sophistication to a space for kids. Beautiful. The photo is from book Brooklyn Modern and was taken by photographer Yoko Inoue
