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!)

Today you can find me over at the Better Homes & Gardens Style Spotters blog, where I have featured a nursery design inspired by Jess’s bedroom from The New Girl.  I’ll be posting twice a month with interior inspiration, and I’m thrilled to be posting alongside some fantastic bloggers.  Click here to download the 8″ x 10″ image of a line from one of my favorite She & Him songs, also featured on the board!

rainbow baby room ideasSome sunny inspiration for the sunny days we have been having.  I have been attempting a rainbow board for awhile, but it’s been a challenge to curate just the right items that are happy and not cheesy.  This feels like a good mix – if you know of any fun rainbow art, feel free to comment.  I really adore that night light – it is so precious!  Might have to snag one for myself . . .

(First, thanks to Donaville of Dearest Nature, who featured a a little tour of our house today.  Check it out here if you wish!)football baby room ideasThis post is for those of you who aren’t into geek chic nurseries.  I have received several requests from those of you trying to appease sports minded men, so I hope this will be of some help.  If you are trying to feature a specific team, try to find vintage programs, photos, and pennants, rather than current items.  It will lend the room much more character, and I was able to find a ton of options for lots of teams with a google search.  Etsy, ebay, and all posters all have great options available, and the covers for some of these old programs are really great.  Scanning in photos of your husband or other family members in their uniform and printing them out large in black and white would make really sweet custom touches.  If you are trying to highlight the colors of a certain team, maybe try to bring them out in places other than artwork or posters, such as stadium blankets, striped fabric, or even on a refinished dresser for a fun pop!


Coryann"Can you maybe adopt me? So I can live in your house haha ; ] "

MegVassar"I love this board!  Well done! "

Happiness is Eva"Great tour! You have such a lovely house! :)  "
