Bee is becoming more and more toddler-like by the second, so we’re already starting to think about big kid bedding and the like. How sweet are these design from Rafa Kids, a Netherland-based husband and wife team?
I don’t recall ever having visited a circus, but I also have the spottiest memory in the world, so you never can tell with me. (Heck, I could have starred in the circus and wouldn’t remember – truly, my memory is that bad.) So when my girlfriend asked me to design a circus-inspired space for her new baby, I knew of a few things: striped big tops, magic shows and animals. And boom – a nursery was born!:
I’ve been helping a few friends design nurseries and big kid bedrooms for the littles in their lives, and my goodness – is there anything sweeter than seeing tiny eyes light up in a space that reflects their truest passions and interests? I thought it might be fun to share a few of the designs here in case you’re looking for virtual inspiration for your own kid’s space – and please let me know if you’re stumped with a particular theme in your own home. I’m a big believer that it’s always possible to create a space your kid loves without compromising style!
Today is a big kid bedroom for my friend’s son, Beck, who is obsessed with his favorite Three Musketeers book. Sources below – enjoy!
How perfect is this kid’s space for a girl with loads of personality? With so many patterns, textures, colors and shapes, I’m imagining this to be a lovely spot for a future mini graphic or fashion designer…
I’m crazy excited to share the grand tour of the nursery today! For new readers and friends, my husband and I have been renovating a ranch in the midwest for a little over two years (you can follow the entire process on HGTV.com!), and the nursery used to be a spare room for ongoing projects, tools and miscellaneous storage. But with our little girl’s arrival just a short month away, we transformed the space in the nick of time! Enjoy a photo tour with peeks of details, sources and much, much more! (and don’t forget to check out the full video tour on Mom.Me!):
This sweet little boy, Paavo, is a lucky one indeed. What a bold, geometric (yet still surprisingly soothing!) bedroom!…
Some of my favorite rooms are the ones that look effortlessly pulled together – no design plan, no measurements. Just pure personal style showcased in every color, pick and piece throughout the room. The kids’ space above reflects this thought perfect – full of style, but far from meticulously planned (which is a nice little recipe for a life well-lived, yes?).
Get details on the above kids’ room (plus other beautiful interior design images!) at Skona Hem.
I’ve got a ways to go before it’s time to buy child’s bedding, but how adorable is this paper doll bedding for a little girl’s room? I’m in love!
Purchase this sweet little set for $73 at Rafa Kids.
Baby registries can often look so convoluted – does a tiny baby really need that much stuff? And with a slew of showers coming up next month, I’m doing my best to register for the best basics – and little else. Naturally, I’ve been chatting with experts and real moms to help guide me in my own registry, and I thought it might be fun to share with you for those of you who are as confused as I am!
Over the next two weeks, I’ll be creating The Ultimate Registry – one step a time. Up today? The nursery (one of my favorite topics)! Here are a few of the best finds to build your baby’s happy little nest (and some surprising “essentials” you won’t need!):
