yellow and blue baby nursery inspiration

I feel like I’ve been seeing jackalopes here and there lately.  Such strange, cute little critters.  It has always stuck out in my mind that Chip says when he was a kid, he always believed them to be real.  Guess it’s sort of the unicorn of the desert, maybe?  Anyway, I’m loving that Nan Lawson print above.  I’m also pretty crazy about those candlestick pendant lights.

Tonight, I’m participating in a pin party with Project Nursery and RH Baby & Child – join in here!  Above is some inspiration centered around their collection.  Most of their line has a very traditional, heirloom feel, and is perfect if you want to go for a very serene and sophisticated look.  I mixed it up a little by adding in some aqua – sources below!

thundercat nursery inspiration (Note: Sources are listed below – having some technical issues!) Have y’all seen that the new Land of Nod collection has just been released?  It’s perfectly awesome, per usual, and I can’t want to share some collaborative projects here soon.  For today, here is a little inspiration featuring a few of their new items – I’m pretty crazy over that new rocker.  It looks super comfy, and a high back is essential, in my opinion!  It’s the perfect blend of modern + traditional, so it would fit well in any decor, and last quite awhile.

nautical nursery ideas

Brooke was kind enough to send me some photos she took of her client Sarah’s nursery she created for her baby Hank.  I thought it was so perfectly sweet and had to share!  She said Sarah used a lot of Lay Baby Lay inspiration, and I love seeing how it all came together.  This room has such a perfect vintage feel with all the wood trim, which ties in with the nautical look so nicely.  I really love that she used the Jenny Lind crib; I think it’s easy to be hesitant to use this style in a boy’s room, but I think it works so well, especially in the cherry or ebony colors.

Sarah’s sisters hand painted that sweet banner with Hank’s name on it, and aren’t the anchors sweet on the wall?  You can find similar ones here; such a great way to make a statement wall affordably!  That vintage helm clock is also such a great accent.

This is such a great collection of nautical inspired art, and the natural wood frames in varying finishes make it feel cohesive.

Love that rocker – it looks really comfy!  That license plaque on the wall is from Sarah’s great grandfather’s auto garage; Hank’s middle name is Coulter.  What a sweet nod to his heritage!  (Moustache pillow from here.)

The rug is from ikea, and that organizer (also from ikea!) makes the perfect little piece for storing odds and ends and keeping them close at hand.  I love that she put the books next to the rocker within easy reach for bedtime stories and cuddling (similar shelves here).  Seriously, I just love all that wood trim.  It’s the perfect complement to the nautical look.

Thanks so much for sharing, Brooke and Sarah!!  I love the space, and I’m sure little Hank does, too!  And speaking of, here is a pic of the cute little guy:

woodland baby room ideas

Today I’m excited to introduce you to a line of beautifully crafted children’s art called Eclectica Kiddo (and they are based out of Atlanta – yay!).  Laura and Emily are both mamas who left careers in art consulting and wanted to create a line of children’s art that parents can appreciate and that is quality enough to be handed down to the next generation.  They have collaborated with artists to create gorgeous pieces (many of which are printed on birch panels – my favorite!).

Aren’t those pieces the sweetest?  The colors and the illustrations are so darling.  Laura and Emily also recently introduced a line for Eclectica Kiddo called the Itty Bitty Collection which is made up of smaller 6″ x 6″ and 5″ x 7″ panels (and they are only $20 apiece – such a steal for those little gems!) for the perfect little punches of art where you need them.  Below are a few of my favorites from their whole collection, although it’s so hard to choose!

Laura and Emily are also kindly offering 20% of to Lay Baby Lay readers with code laybabylay20 until this Sunday, May 25th!  If you are looking for some special pieces for your nursery or little one’s room, be sure to check out their darling collection!

 

Thanks so much to Eclectica Kiddo for sponsoring this post!
