a big girl room for vivi

THEMES   |    |    |    |  

pink big girl room

(sources below) For awhile, I’ve been thinking and planning about some changes to Vivi’s room.  We have moved things around a few times, but as we recently became officially done with the changing table and she has been adjusted to the big girl bed for awhile, it seems a good time for a refresh.  Her rug is also in need of replacing after three and a half years of toddler love, and all the moving around of artwork and such has left quite a few scars on the walls.  We are (attempting) to work on stopping the thumb sucking – it’s so hard!  She really wants to paint her room pink, and we have promised once she stops sucking her thumb, we will repaint it.  I’m also hoping to move Brigette into Vivi’s room once she graduates to a big girl bed (cue tears!), which is still a little bit away.  Vivi tends to have a lot of bad dreams, and I’m hoping having Brigette close by might bring her a little extra comfort, not to mention fun.  Also check out my pinterest board of inspiration here.

(By the way, anyone have any tips on the thumb-sucking thing?  It’s a challenge!  We are trying to be very encouraging, but it’s a tough habit to kick!)

mermaid baby room inspiration (Sources listed below.)   I’m loving this bright and happy inspiration for today!  I came across the Hooray Today etsy shop. and I’m loving all the bright and quirky prints!  So fun – especially the kitty cone.  Also, who is going to purchase that awesome vintage Copenhagen travel poster?  Comment if you get it and send me pics of how perfect it looks in your space – wish I could snag it!  It’s also quite a statement piece at 24″ x 39″, so it would really anchor a room!!  Seriously, someone needs to grab it!

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!

(pictured above: Reaching High, Littlest Birds, View From Above I (I love all of Ekaterina’s pieces!!), Our House in the Woods, Growing a Garden, Cotton Candy in the Clouds)

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!

The Littlest Mermaid

THEMES   |    |    |  

mermaid baby room ideas

This board seems to be one of your favorites, and the links have been broken since we re-launched the site.  I’ve been wanting to update it for awhile, and finally I was able to get it together!  I changed a few things out so that they are currently available (except that minty green dresser – but the color is so divine that I left it as inspiration should you find the perfect vintage piece that needs a little extra love!).  I love the girly mermaid idea re-imagined with a more nautical and natural feel.  That Mermaid Banner from Three Potato Four is just the best!
