Navy For The Nursery

I received a collection of prints from Lindsay Letters earlier in the week. (if you follow me on INSTAGRAM) you already got a sneak peak!) I was so inspired by this bold/NAVY Adventure print. I want to repeat this message OUT LOUD to Harper & Rex every day!

Anyone using NAVY in their nursery? NAVY is a fab color for boys, but would work really well for a gender neutral room as well. If I was using a lot of Navy I’d paint the walls crisp white for an amazing contrast. Here are a few of my current NAVY faves:

1. Be Brave Print
2. Navy & White Stripe Cylinder Light
3. Oliver B Crib Sheet, White/Navy
4. Navy Moon Pillow
5. Appaman Hockey Jersey – Galaxy
6. Navy Kånken Mini
7. Blue Dress w/ Neon Yellow Bow (not exactly NAVY, but this dress is on clearance at Target for $8 & I just LOVE it!)
8. Blue Wooden Bead Teether
9. Navy Greek Key Blanket
10. Navy Striped Tube Socks for Baby (i’m loving that tube socks are back in style!)
11. Polka Dot Bear

Little Leggings


<<<<<<< 123456 >>>>>>>

I am so into the baby legging craze right now! Leggings are great for little boys and girls because they are comfy, easy to put on and ADORABLE! I had a hard time finding cute inexpensive leggings for boys until I started looking in the girls section at stores! LOTS of leggings can be gender neutral so don’t be afraid to shop for your baby boys in the girls section!

Good morning! Today I wanted to share some of my favorites from Serena & Lily. Instead of picking random things, I decided to make a mood board…

Everything in this mood board is from Serena & Lily except the orange painting. The inspiration for the room was actually the orange/blue stripe baby sleeper. ORANGE and BLUE seem like the perfect colors to incorporate into a gender neutral room. Because these are bold colors I chose to tone down the rest of the room with furniture & accessories in light neutrals. Don’t be afraid to mix whites, creams, greys, and beiges. They can actually compliment each other nicely!

Inspired by Wallpaper

POÄNG rocker, SUNDVIK crib, blue nightstand, print, faux sheepskin rug, elephant lamp, cat dish, kitty ornament, Striped Wallpaper in Canary, mustache pillow

We were shopping at IKEA over the weekend & I was so inspired by all of the inexpensive (& cute) furniture choices for the nursery. One of my FAVORITE new cribs is called the SUNDVIK. It comes in this dark chocolate color & is only $119! The POÄNG rocker is also a steal for only $139.00!

Do you have any IKEA furniture in your house?

The mood board above is a soft gender neutral option. Is anyone expecting a “surprise baby?” If so, what colors are you using to decorate with? I really love this grey & yellow wallpaper with the furry white rug.

BTW, IKEA has a FREE playroom for children that are potty trained. We dropped Harper off for an hour while we shopped with Rexford. She had a blast! Afterwards we decided to have dinner, then $1 ice cream cones & cinnamon buns. My husband & I are convinced that IKEA cinnamon buns are better than Cinnabon! Have you tried them? What is your favorite thing to eat at IKEA?

p.s. if you’ve used wallpaper in your nursery/children’s room, I’d love to see it! email shari @

Inspired by Wallpaper

Josephine Grey Wallpaper/cloud bookshelf/chartreuse polka dot pillow/mobile/giraffe pillows/elephant pillow/LOVE print/Elephant Crib Sheeting

Because I am so “inspired by wallpaper” I’ve decided to make this a series of posts. This week I was thinking of a really soft gender neutral room with cool blues and greys. I think ANY white crib would look great in this nursery. Possibly a Jenny Lind or IKEA crib for budget-friendlyness sake?

Be sure to check out the adorable crib sheet. If you zoom in you’ll notice the subtle elephant print.

& I’ve included 3 of my favorite books that would look cute on the cloud wall shelf:

And Tango Makes Three

The Skin You Live In

crochet apples/wallpaper/hug the dog print/black & white stripe pillow/whale tissue holder/Black Basset crib (used to be sold at Target)

There is a BIG sale at Anthropologie & this amazing wallpaper is on sale. I always thought it would be darling on an accent wall in the nursery…possibly behind the crib? Anyone else planning on putting wallpaper in the nursery?

Modern Nursery (No Pastels)

Happy Friday! I have so many gorgeous nurseries, baby bumps, & birth stories to share with you in the next few weeks. This morning I discovered this refreshing gender neutral nursery in my inbox. So lovely, don’t you agree? I love that Mary used a “REAL” tree on the wall! & her rug makes the nursery feel very outdoorsy.

a bit more about Mary’s vision, and challenges:

Hi Shari,

I have been reading Spearmint Baby these past few months and thought you may be interested in my nursery.

I am an Australian writer/editor living in Shanghai with my husband. I’m currently 37 weeks pregnant (will it ever end?!). Outfitting a nursery in this city has had its challenges! It has taken a lot of shopping around to gather all the bits and pieces I wanted. A mixture of Shanghai buys, online shopping and picking up bits and pieces while on holiday in Australia, Japan and Singapore. I didn’t want a theme as such, but did want the nursery to be bright and happy with not a pastel colour in sight.

I have plenty more high-res pics, but here are a few here:

All the best,
