Seeing Stripes Nursery

Hi there, Irene from designstiles today. I’ve been working on a little boy’s nursery since the end of last year and we’re just waiting for furniture to be delivered and paint to go up and we should be ready for a reveal by the end of March, just in time for baby’s arrival.

Mom wanted something soft but not too babyish, to give the room some interest and depth, we’re painting some blue horizontal stripes, inspired by this room:

And here is our interpretation


Mom also new she wanted the Larkin changing table from Pottery Barn. The side cabinet is ideal for hiding the diaper pail and since it’ll be the first furniture piece people will see when they walk into room, it made perfect sense.

To offset the white changing table, we picked this beautiful archway crib in a grey wash to add some warmth.

To ground the space and give the room some visual interest and soft texture, we chose this wool rug.

Picking up some of the grey tones in the rug, is the sloped arm glider which mimics the curved lines of the crib. We’re also doing the matching ottoman.

A crinkled linen pendant to coordinate with crib will add pretty casual simplicity.

Incorporating deeper hints of color are the bedding and side table (navy no longer available).

To add personality and an overall extra layer of cuteness is the artwork. All from Minted, my go-to for cool but affordable art.

And last but not least are just little details like this adorable little giraffe. We’ll also be doing a bookcase for toys and personal mementos.

And soon enough I will share the end result.

Happy Wednesday!

Natural Teethers

Hi, Irene from designstiles today. Feels like I haven’t been here in forever!

At my age now, everyone I know seems to be having babies and aside from gifting things on their registry, I also try to include at least one item that is a little unique and different. I saved the wooden tooth teether as a possible gift, which then inspired me to try and find more options. The pizza one might be my favorite.


pizza :: taxi cab :: elephant :: bunny :: giraffe :: tooth

Teethers are made of non-splintering maple, which are anti-bacterial, non-toxic and non-allergenic.

Eco and cute.

Barbie Storage


LOTS of new Barbies arrived from Santa this year. Harper is collecting both new and vintage. I was able to find some beautiful Barbies from the 90’s that were new in box on eBay. As the collection has grown we needed a place to store… preferably out of our puppy’s reach! I picked up this over the door shoe holder at Bed Bath & Beyond and it works beautifully!
