This week I’m excited to be partnering with Honey & Fitz over on my blog, with two cats to offer you a series of six vintage bomber airplane paintings, perfect for your little guy’s nursery, bedroom, or play space!
It’s part of a little project shop owner, Dina is calling ‘Art for Boys’. Dina says, “It’s my way of helping moms of boys out there find cute, boy-appropriate and not overly baby-ish art to decorate their little mens’ rooms.” She was originally inspired to create the bomber series by this image from Domino Magazine:
I think it is a fantastic idea and am so excited that she is partnering with us on this great giveaway! The series of six is a 79 dollar value and one lucky reader will get his or her choice of your favorite six vintage planes.
Does anyone elso love watercolor artwork as much as me? Laura Trevey sells these beautiful dress prints of her original watercolor paintings. Perfect for your little princess, don’t you think?
Here they are displayed as a group on the wall:

…I also have my eye on this Peppermint Watercolor Print. Isn’t it fun? Perfectly playful for the playroom:
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:
Crib – Pottery Barn Kids
Pouf – cb2
Mobile – Bits of String n Things on Etsy
Rug – Dash & Albert
Lamp – Crate & Barrel
Crib Bedding – Pottery Barn Kids

So that wraps up this series! Anyone have an idea for a theme for the next one? I’m open to ideas!
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.

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.
Rug – West Elm
Bumper Fabric – Kiitos Marimekko
Skirt Fabric – Kiitos Marimekko
Yellow Pillow – cb2
Knitted Pouf – cb2

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:
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!
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:
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!
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:
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.
this is a really fun DIY project that Ann from whitehouseblackshutters.com sent me back in February. i love her pretty cursive writing!
all you need is some scrap paper, yarn, and Mod Podge!
it looks easy enough. wouldn’t it be fun to do the entire alphabet in colorful yarn?
if you try this project send me pics please 🙂
budget nursery wall art! i love these mix & match wrapping paper prints – the possibilities are endless. via Loving White
p.s. i always have leftover wrapping paper after the holidays and it used to get torn and wrinkled in my storage closet. i purchased this a few months ago and no more wasted paper!
a mini print to add to your nursery wall of art! i love this Winter Wolf…he is perfect for those of you expecting winter babies. he looks sweet, but fierce enough to protect your little one 😉 i think he could work well in a gender neutral room. Alice Rebecca Potter
p.s. this one is adorable too!
i first saw this beautiful room on Made by Girl – LOVE the gorgeous blue walls and ceiling. my absolute favorite idea is framing children’s artwork. i love that that she covered an entire wall with adorable handmade artwork. it is definitely the cutest (and probably the least expensive) part of the entire room. for more visit brookegiannetti.typepad.com
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?
*Paper, preferably thin paper, as it´s easier to glue together.
*Thread (you can use embroidery thread in a fun color or any other string)
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
project from Pickles
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??
sold out in stores, but you can still find them on Ebay. starting at $.99 each plus $6.50 shipping.
i just got around to framing a new print i bought for the nursery. i think the orange is going to look really nice with the bookcase i am painting orange. (this has been taking me forever, but i promise to post photos once i finish with the minwax topcoat and sanding!)
here are a few new pieces of wall art for our little boy’s nursery. i finished the first coat of paint today. i will get some photos as soon as i finish the trim and second coat. so stay tuned….a lot more to come!
