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

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,

Gender Neutral Nursery

This nursery was part of the Parade of Homes Utah & was photographed by the girls of Hiya Papaya. I am not sure what is more beautiful…the nursery or the photography!

Gender Neutral Nursery

This nursery became much more beautiful once they added some interesting patterns…the vintage style leaf wallpaper, geometric pattern rug, and black contrasting doggy bulletin board! See the before on

BTW, I love the mini toadstools. I was just browsing toadstool ornaments over the weekend!

Play Rooms are for Fun

Hi, I’m Susi, a blogger for Arcadian Lighting, where I write about lighting and interior design ideas. I’m so happy to be here at Spearmint Baby today as a guest blogger! My post is all about fun play rooms. There are some amazing play rooms out there filled with lots of creative ideas for furniture, light fixtures and wall art. I hope these inspire you to create one in your home. Enjoy!

Children Play Rooms

Color, color and color makes for a fun play room. This play room is filled with creativity, from activities to the colorful garland.

Color is so important for creating a fun play room. This play room has a travel theme to inspire young travelers. From globes and maps to suitcases and souvenirs, the travel theme adds color as well as interest.

Chalkboard paint is a great idea for the walls of a fun play room. You could choose classic black chalkboard paint or from a wide array of chalkboard paints in everything from pink to orange to brown.

A window seat or bench provides a comfortable place to hang out, read a book or even nap. This gender neutral play room uses red, blue and white in cheerful patterns.

Cleverly designed shelves become steps to a nook and slide. Great for older kids, this play room has great open space for expending energy and a nook for quiet time. Track lights and spot lights are perfect choices for this well-designed room.

Fun in the play room means lots of toys. Lots of toys means there is a need for clever organization, like these various size cubes on the wall to hold books, toys and tiny treasures.

For older kids, this two level play room is a fun idea. Bright colors and tons of visual interest engage young minds.

The ultimate fun playroom has a swing… and a slide. Great creativity makes this play room one of our faves for multiple ages. Recessed ceiling lights provide good illumination in this cool space. I love the tree with the swing—it’s so charming!

Nursery Paint Colors

Someone wonderful got me a subscription for House Beautiful magazine recently and I get so excited each time I see a new issue in the mail. In the latest issue, there is an article about paint colors that look beautiful in every light. I had an idea of the direction I wanted to go for paint colors in the nursery, but this article came at the perfect time to solidify two great possibilities.

One thing I wanted to keep in mine while choosing paint colors was that they should go well with the rest of the house. Remember our living/dining room color? It’s a dark purple. Our entryway is now a light gray and our kitchen and hallway will be the same color. Our master bedroom is staying white, due to the paneling, and my husband can’t stand painting another room, so our office will stay sage green. I remember when we were looking at houses to buy and there was one with a PINK room, a BLUE room, and a YELLOW room. Each one screamed it’s designated color and the whole effect was a bit nauseating. I’m hoping to avoid that same vibe, but I still want to have fun decorating.

For a girl, I wanted something with a peachy-pink hue, but I didn’t want it too girly. This is one color that was featured in the House Beautiful article and I really love it. It looks a bit different in the magazine, so I hope the name is correct!

Benjamin Moore’s Sheraton Beige

For a boy, I wanted something light with a grey-blue hue. This color could easily work for a girl as well, but since I’m going gender neutral with so many baby items, I’d like the paint to be a bit more feminine if we have a girl. This color is so calming and serene – it would be perfect for a baby boy’s room.

Benjamin Moore’s Lily White

I’ve also decided that we’ll use the cowhide rug from our dining room in the nursery, since it is a bit small and awkward under the dining table – the chairs catch on it all the time due to it’s curvy shape. Cowhide rugs are everywhere lately, so I feel like it will bring a fresh modern feel into the space.

Now I need to start making inspiration boards! I’ve tried polyvore, but does anyone know of a better site for making interior design inspiration boards? I don’t have photoshop, so it has to be something free online.

Do you like the colors? What about the cowhide rug idea?
