One Print, Three Rooms Part III

Alright all of you lovers of traditional spaces – here’s one just for you! You’ve seen both a modern space and vintage-inspired space based on this group of prints from COSAS MINIMAS by Blanca Gomez on Etsy:

Here is the final space – it’s got a traditional vibe with stripes, plaids, and wood tones. The orangey-red pouf is back as well to round out the series:

Pouf – cb2

One Print, Three Rooms Part II

On Monday I kicked off my second One Print, Three Rooms series with a very modern space inspired by this group of colorful prints from COSAS MINIMAS by Blanca Gomez on Etsy:

For the second space in the series I went for a more vintage vibe. The orangey-red pouf has made a second appearance, but warmer, earthier tones are replacing the graphic black and whites of the previous room.

One Print, Three Rooms

Let’s hear it for the boys! After my first One Print, Three Rooms series (which was decidedly girly) I promised to create a series for the little guys. We’ll kick it off today with a modern space inspired by this adorable group of prints from COSAS MINIMAS by Blanca Gomez on Etsy:

The colorful nature and graphic shapes in this print made me instantly lean in the direction of a modern children’s space, but I’ll mix it up in a few days and go with a more traditional and maybe a more vintage-inspired space as well.

The Perfect Mother’s Day

For Breakfast: Free Mother’s Day breakfast printables from the genius Jordan Ferney:

Card from Baby: Our babysitter made us this adorable card for Valentine’s Day, but it would work equally well for Mother’s Day:

Card from Dad: Rifle Paper Co. – You can’t find prettier paper products anywhere else.

A Family Portrait: Etsy has a ton of great options. Try out The Paper Mama Shop, Pop Pop Portraits, or for something more abstract visit Cozy Blue.

The Flowers: These dried flowers from flores del sol will last a lot longer than traditional fresh flowers and are just as pretty:
 The Gift: A pin from Emerson Made would make any mom smile, or if all else fails, sending her to the spa for a mani, pedi, and/or massage is always a winner.
At the End of the Day: Give Mom the night off. Put the kids to bed, make yourself scarce, and let her read a book, take a bubble bath, or just veg. Hang this adorable sign on the door from Twig and Thistle to make sure any wandering little feet find dad instead of mom:
Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

Cinnamon Ink


Check out Cinnamon Ink for darling wall art for the nursery. My 3 faves are Take Flight in red, Fly Away, and Red Rover.

I was obsessed with Red Rover when I was a little girl. You can actually have this print customized to say “Red rover, red rover send Harper right over!” So fun!

One Print, Three Rooms: Part 3

On Monday and Wednesday, I introduced the first and second design in my new series – One Print, Three Rooms. In case you missed it, I’m using a painting or print as a source of inspiration to create a series of three different spaces. This week, I’ve been working with this amazing alphabet print from Etsy seller Ampersand:

In the first design, I used mossy greens and muted blues with just a few pops of pink and yellow, while design number two was full of creamy yellows and peony pinks. For the third and final design I went with pear green walls and vintage accents:

Sources:

Bunk Bed – Oeuf 
Rug – Dwell Studio
Paint – Behr Citron
Macaron Photo – Etsy seller magalerie
Vintage Linen Storage Basket – Etsy seller polka dots and blooms
Vintage French Linen Pillow – Etsy seller homemaker movement
Textured Linen Pillow – Pottery Barn
Brass Quail Set – Etsy seller AM radio
Feed Sack Teddy Bear – Etsy seller AM radio
Quilt – Dwell Studio
Mesh Lawn Pillow Case – Dwell Studio
Crochet Pear Toy – Etsy seller California Sweet Peas

Per reader request I’m listing the total price for each idea board for comparison. This version comes in at $2344, although a large portion of that is the Oeuf bunk bed. A less expensive bunk bed can be found here, which would make the total price $1164.74.

And finally, here are all three spaces side by side:

So that wraps up this series of One Print, Three Spaces. Stay tuned – the next series will be all about snips and snails and puppy dog tails!

One Print, Three Rooms: Part 2

On Monday, I introduced the first design in my new series – One Print, Three Rooms. In case you missed it, I’m using a painting or print as a source of inspiration to create a series of three different spaces. This week, I’ve been working with this amazing alphabet print from Etsy seller Ampersand:

In the first design, I used a lot of the mossy greens and muted blues with just a few pops of pink and yellow. In the second design, I’ve turned the tables and creamy yellows and peony pinks are now the main stars of the space:

Sources:

Paint – Behr Stardust
Shower Me With Love Pillow – Etsy seller Pepper Glenn
Slice Pillow – cb2
Crib – Pottery Barn Kids
Bumper Fabric – Hawthorne Threads
Fitted Crib Sheets – Land of Nod
Theodore the Knitted Bear – Etsy seller Yarnigans
Rug – Dash & Albert
Sunny Cloud Mobile – Etsy seller The Butter Flying
Curtains – Pottery Barn Teen
Whale Rollimal – Etsy seller US Wood Toys
Vintage Globe – Etsy seller Little Dog Vintage
Industrial Metal Wall Shelf – Urban Outfitters

Per reader request I’m listing the total price for each idea board for comparison. This version comes in at $1151.954, although a large portion of that is the Pottery Barn crib. A similar and less expensive crib can be found here, which would make the total price $812.94.

Stay tuned for the next space on Friday, and don’t worry all of you mamas of boys – this print definitely calls for a decidedly girly space, but the next series will be all about the little guys!

One Print, Three Rooms

I often get asked the question, “How do you come up with your idea boards?” And it’s actually not as difficult as you’d think. Most of the time my clients have a few items that I can use as inspiration for the rest of the space. One of my favorite jumping-off points is a great print or piece of art. For example, this amazing alphabet print from Etsy seller Ampersand:

I actually feel like I have trouble focusing my finds because there are so many different directions I can go with any given space, so I thought it might be fun to show you how one piece of art could belong in three very different rooms.

To kick things off here is the first space in the series:

Sources:

Paint – Behr Billowy Down
Seaglass Pillow – Crate & Barrel
Fern Pillow – Etsy seller Deid Goods
Crib – Pottery Barn Kids
Bumper – Little Auggie
(not a fan of bumpers? They have a great crib skirt as well!)
Fitted Crib Sheets – Little Auggie
Fox Plushie – Pretty Little Things
Rug – Crate & Barrel
Mobile – Etsy seller Lil Sprout Creations
Curtains – Land of Nod
Lamp – Etsy seller Helen Rawlinson
Hand Knit Squishies – Etsy Seller Sheila Likes to Knit

Stay tuned for the next space on Wednesday, and don’t worry all of you mamas of boys – this print definitely calls for a decidedly girly space, but the next series will be all about the little guys!

Edit: Angela requested a total price for each idea board for comparison. This bad boy comes in at $1338.95, although a large portion of that is the Pottery Barn crib. A similar and less expensive crib can be found here, which would make the price $1014.94.

it looks easy enough. wouldn’t it be fun to do the entire alphabet in colorful yarn?

no sew paper garland


i get so excited when i find a beautiful and super easy DIY project. my creative time is so limited with 2 children under 2. isn’t this garland beautiful?


supplies:
*Paper, preferably thin paper, as it´s easier to glue together.
*Scissors
*Thread (you can use embroidery thread in a fun color or any other string)
*Glue



fold your paper in half and cut out triangle shapes. and don’t worry, the triangles do not have to be all the same size- irregularity makes it interesting!


fold together over your string and glue

Mod Podge Letters


To decorate these paper mache letters, I simply traced them onto the back of cardstock, cut out the tracing, and used Mod Podge to paste the paper on top of the letter. After waiting for it to dry, I lightly sanded the edges of the paper so that it would neatly blend in and then slapped on a few more coats of Mod Podge over the top. When the letter was dry, I added a cluster of scrapbook embellishments including paper flowers, decorative brads, and ribbon.

these are so cute! why spend money on letters when you can DIY??
