get the look: animal print

Trend: Animal print, in fashion and interiors

Touches of animal print seem to be everywhere, and it’s a fun trend to incorporate into a nursery for a sophisticated touch.  Here is a take on a nursery with a few exotic details for a polished yet feminine look.  I really love the prints that  are a little more abstract, like the black and white spots, rather than the literal leopard, although that can be quite fun, too!  Green velvet is a natural pairing with animal print, and would be great for recovering an old chair, or on a pouf or ottoman for an extra luxe detail.baby room ideasSources, from top left: (1) Flower Drum Shade; (2) Paris; (3) Bunny Watercolor; (4) J is for Jaguar; (5) Little Darlings Bobcat; (6) Paris is Always a Good Idea; (7) New York Map; (8) Little Darlings White Tiger; (9) Vintage containers; (10) Century Crib; (11) Brass Tiger; (12) Black and White Pillows; (13) Hot Pink Dresser; (14) Charcoal Spots Sheet; (15) Green Velvet Chair; (16) Gold Branch Lamps; (17) Yellow and White Rug; (18) Let the Wild Rumpus Start; (19) Basket; (20) Charcoal Dots Fabric; (21) Freestyle Fabric

sharing a room: cheery cherry

Recently, I received a request from a mom who wants her toddler daughter to share a room with her baby brother on the way.  She wanted to use her daughter’s red Pottery Barn play kitchen as a starting point, so here is a palette suitable for both.  It’s lovely on the light blue, but would also work well on a white or neutral shade of wall.  This pretty red also has me thinking about the holidays . . . shared kids bedroomSources, from top left: (1) Pink & red Print; (2) Flow Print; (3) White Pendant Light; (4) Say the Word; (5) Matchbox Collection; (6) Red Print; (7) Monarch Bed; (8) White Table Lamp; (9) Wonder, Explore, Play; (10) Radio Flyer; (11) Pedestal Table; (12) Ebony Jenny Lind Crib; (13) Red Triangle Pillows; (14) Red Ombre Dresser; (15) Retro Rocker; (16) Gray Dot Rug; (17) Flags Pillow; (18) A Little Peacock; (19) Red Retro Play Kitchen

so happy together: a shared room

I receive frequent requests for shared room ideas, and I can understand the dilemma, especially with age and gender differences involved.  Here is one look at a room for a big sister and a baby brother to happily co-exist.

favorite modern botanical art sources

I covet gallery-style art displays–do you? They look so casual cool and say so much about a person. In my head, a woman with pretty botanical and floral prints on her wall is slightly traditional, feminine, maybe a little scientific, and definitely up on trends because nothing could be hotter right now.

Here are 10 sources for botanical and floral art I’ve been browsing (and loving) lately.

1: Flowers V by Helen Covensky
2: Leaves print by Leah Duncan
3: Going Where the Wind Blows by Budi Satria Kwan
4: Reindeer by Frances Ooi
5: Morning Frost Meadow By Anna Emilia Laitinen
6: Dandelion print by Double Merrick
7: Flowers for Gabriella by Lulie Wallace
8: Green Poppy Pods by LupenGrainne
9: Autumn Fern by unitedthread
10: Wild Fennel by Jean Lurssen

london love

Have you been enjoying the Olympics as much as we have?  With all the exciting events and the corresponding footage/history/details about London and the UK, I can’t help but be inspired.  (And on that note, did you know that the name “London” is now in the top 100 baby names for girls and it’s climbing the charts for boys, too?)  In that spirit, here is a board paying tribute to that fine city.
