science baby room inspiration Be sure to check out Honest to Nod today, and the post about the Little Rockstar nursery!  I love how this room came together!  It’s a space and science baby room with an edge.  And I think it would work great for a girl or boy – extra bonus!  Ahh, how gorgeous is that campaign dresser?  Go here to see more photos of the space, and the inspiration board behind it all.

(Also, be sure to check out Timothy’s Nursery, the Candy Kisses Nursery, and the Baby Bear Nursery with the Land of Nod!)

ballerina baby nursery inspiration

Vivi has been really fascinated by ballerinas lately, and I have received a few requests for a ballet board, so here is a little inspiration!  I am loving all these vintage black and white ballerina photos.  They would look lovely scanned and printed at a much larger scale (FedEx Office and Staples have super affordable printing options for black and white!) and the black and white keeps the room from feeling overly sweet.  And how sweet are those glittery ballet shoes?  I’m having a hard time not buying a pair for Vivi.  This would also make a beautiful toddler room; just put in a big girl bed and go!

black and white nursery inspirationA little nod to the season: some Harry Potter, imagination, and crisp black and white. I think these tree decals would also be pretty cute as a pattern on one wall, and  I love that giant (24″ x 36″!) feather photo!


Kitty"I some how managed to miss this one. I love the black and white with the tan colors. …"

john wayne - courageWe added this print to Ashley’s nursery.  Thought I’d share it in case anyone else finds it inspiring for their little (or big!) guy’s space.  Find it here on Society6.  I love how it looks in that vintage frame.
