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!).

eclectica kiddo

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!

Henry Otto’s Nursery

THEMES   |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |  

boy nursery inspiration

Happy Friday!  I’m excited to share the nursery my talented friend Erica put together for her adorable little boy, Henry Otto.  This room is just so perfectly boy.  She says they wanted to keep his room comfy and light, and also fairly neutral.  They kept the gender a secret from everyone until he was born!  That takes a lot of self-control.  I don’t think I could contain that information for so long once I knew it!

Don’t you love the mural?  She found the inspiration on Pinterest, and her husband worked on the design and she painted it while 8 months pregnant.  That kind of makes me tired thinking about it!  I love how it turned out, and it looks pretty great on the shades, too. (White Hudson Crib by Babyletto).

She found that vintage ottoman at a local antique market, and her mother reupholstered it in that fantastic aqua.

The beautiful alphabet print below is available in her shop (love the colors!) and the red metal basket is vintage (will be super great for toy storage as little Henry grows) as well as that amazing chair.  She recovered it herself in mustard covered vinyl.  So perfect.

And how awesome are those animals?!  She scoured thrift shops for months to build the collection.  She painted them gold to make them work well together, and added a few pops of aqua for fun.  Erica custom designed all the artwork in those frames, and that awesome giraffe is a custom paper (hand!) cut based on Charley Harper’s baby and mama giraffe illustration (amazing!).

I adore that dresser.  It’s a craigslist find that she painted a very light teal.  Below is a little more of it.  I really love that hardware!

I love all the pops of yellow everywhere.  It looks like little Henry adores his space!

Thanks for the tour, buddy!  (And, hey, Gingiber pillow up there in the rocker!)

How cute is that little goat up there on the mountain top?  And just because I am sure you want to see a close up of those animals like I do, here is some more detail (they are so fierce!  So perfect for a little guy’s space):

Erica cut out his name for the door.  She says he points to his name every morning and they say “Henry’s room!”  He loves it.   (She offers custom ones here, and check out the gorgeous calligraphy version here.)

Hope you are inspired!!  Be sure to check out Erica’s shop to view all her awesome prints, cards, stamps, and more!
