Crochet Circle Rugs… I’m seeing them more and more in children’s bedrooms as well as in the nursery. They come in a variety of diameters, and you can find one in pretty much ANY color combination. In fact, a lot of Etsy sellers will take custom orders. I love how circle rugs look placed near the bed, a perfect place for his/her feet to land first thing in the morning. The bright pink circle rug in the first photo (above) just makes the bedroom, don’t you think? Here are a few of my favorites to get you started:

Hello Wire Signs

Wire signs have been around for a LONG time, but the trend seems to still be as popular as ever! The “hello” sign in the photo above is one of my favorites. It is by Down To The Woods, a really fun children’s shop located in Melbourne, Australia. If you have the budget for this one, it really is beautiful + nice and big.

There are some other options on Etsy, and if you are crafty you may even consider making your own!…

Atelier Sans Souci Collection

furniture

I just discovered the uber cool 2014 collection of Atelier Sans Souci (better late than never!) Their beautiful wood furniture is handmade by local carpenters and cabinetmakers.

My favorite piece, ‘Ofelia,’ is a doll house with room to play. I love that it can double as a nightstand. Wouldn’t it be darling in a little girl’s bedroom. Although I kind of want one for myself! ’Mr. Pea’ is an interesting piece that evokes an old story and holds a surprise under all those mattresses. A beautiful piece indeed, I love the mixed legs.

Sans Souci atelier also has a darling collection of dolls and wooden wall hooks in fun, vibrant colors. Visit sanssouciatelier.com for a retailer near you.

Seven Tips to Designing Your Nursery

Hi again, Irene from designstiles today.

I wanted to share my tips to designing your baby’s nursery. It’s such a special and sweet time, I’m hoping that these seven tips will help guide you in creating a unique space for your baby to come home to. These are typically the steps I use to guide me in the designing process for clients. Enjoy!

7_tipstodesigningthenursery

one – gather inspiration: Deciding on an initial design can feel overwhelming, but I suggest start visiting baby sites and stores to begin taking notes on items that catch your attention. Look through magazines or easier, start a Pinterest board and save images that you are drawn to. Determine what mood, style and vibe you’re going for.

two – pick a starting point: once you’ve figured out the look you’re trying to achieve, pick an element and branch out from there. This could be a statement fabric filled with color, a wallcovering or a piece of art. It should be a piece you absolutely love, which makes it easier to continue to select inspiration from. If starting with a theme, careful not to get carried away and take things too literal.

three – assess the space: walk through the nursery and determine best furniture plan according to your needs. Measuring is crucial!

four – furniture selections: avoid furniture sets. For a unique look, a modern crib paired with a traditional glider or dresser looks far more interesting than looking like your nursery came right out of a catalog. Making adult-like purchases such as buying a dresser to use as a changing table is a piece your baby can grow with as opposed to grow out of.

five – personalize: Accessories are a great way to add personality. They’re what differentiate from other nurseries and help make your baby’s room feel extra special. I like advising toward adding meaningful pieces from both parents. This could be displaying baby books that once belonged to the mother to incorporating texture with a blanket that was used by the father.

six – lay it down: don’t forget the area rug. Crucial in a household with hard surface flooring. Buy the biggest you can afford. I find that rugs wide enough to the reach the perimeters of furniture are ideal for a crawling baby. Soft, cozy rugs work well parents to lay on as well.

seven – enjoy the process! The list of baby needs seems endless but I actually think the design process should be a nice break from all the rest of the must haves. This is your opportunity to let your personality come through and express a playful, youthful side we wish we could do with our grown up spaces. Create a moodboard to get a better sense of how things will all look together visually.
