grand budapest hotel baby nursery inspiration

So, have y’all seen anything about Wes Anderson’s new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel?  Chip and I watched the trailer the other night, and we had to watch it again and stop it at every frame just to take in all the gorgeousness.  It’s perfectly beautiful.  I adore all the pinks, reds, and rich purply indigos.  The movie poster is just lovely with that pink confection of a hotel juxtaposed with a breathtaking rugged mountain backdrop, and it’s such fun inspiration for a room.  I was going back and forth between that dresser and this one, but I love the punchiness of that pink.  That beautiful rug is a bit pricey, but this or this or the Minna Rug would be a good substitute for much less!  (And someone needs to snatch up that vintage birth certificate from the ’60’s that is still blank!  Would be so fun in a nursery!)

And, if you haven’t seen it, below are a couple of images, just to give you an idea (from here and here).

Breathtaking, right?  And just look at these colors:

As I was looking around, I also found SF Girl By Bay’s recent post on the movie.  I love her collection of imagery, too!

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!


lesley"this board brings tears to my eyes. beautiful. "

Ashley Nolan"Oh I love this one Joni! I just told Jon you did this one for me! Heehee! Thank you! "

Ashley Nolan"YAY! I just told Jon you made this board for me-or Vivi possibly but I am super pumped! P wears …"

Katie"My 2yo "big girl" is also enamored with ballerinas. We just added a few ballerina touches to her room …"

goody gumdrops baby room ideasSome brightly colored, candy coated inspiration today since Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  Vivi is also really into this stuffed camel she found at my parents’ house, so I thought that photo above was really sweet.  One of her favorite babysitters studied abroad and went to Morocco last summer, and shower her a picture or herself riding a camel.  Since then, we are all about camels and going to Africa!


Joni Lay"I know - that pendant is beautiful! We are getting it for our bedroom! "

Joni Lay"Aww, so glad, Emily! Happy to know you are inspired.:) "

Emily Wignall"just stumbled on your blog today and so, so happy i did! i spent at least an hour perusing …"

Brianne Heape"Oooh, I love that Jenny Lind chair. And i've been eyeing that Marmont Pendant since the first time I saw …"

neutral baby room ideasI have really been focusing on neutral nurseries here lately.  Today, though, I can’t help but be inspired by the beautiful state of our snow laden backyard, so more neutral it is.  I adore those new prints and pillows by Ferm Living (although it seems they are now out of stock?  Hope they get them back in quickly!), and how gorgeous is that pendant light?  That chair is a bit pricey, but I’m loving the look I have seen lately of this rocker plus a fluffy throw to achieve a more nursery appropriate look for less.   And yes, I can’t get enough of those lamps.  They are just perfect.



Amber @ Wills Casa"Beautiful! I love all the pieces in this room! "
