(First of all, congratulations to Gwendolyn, who won the Small Talk Studio giveaway!  Be sure to check out Alyssa’s awesome work if you haven’t.)airplane baby room ideasThis board is a re-visit of one I did quite awhile back, but I keep getting requests for it!  Love that vintage looking propeller and the super shiny pendant light.  These would also be fun to hang over a changing table or crib to keep baby’s attention.

star wars baby room ideasI keep getting emails from some of you who are struggling to compromise with daddies who insist on certain themes, so here is my take on a happy solution for a Star Wars nursery (or toddler room!).  It has just the right amount of humor but limits the cheese.  This room is great for a girl or boy room, and would even look fantastic on – dare I say it? – a light pink.  A fun project would be fun to find vintage Star Wars fabric or sheets to make floor pillows.


Liana"So, so fab. Love. "

Jamie Seibert"This is awesome!  No compromise needed, since we're both Star Wars geeks over here :)  This is geeky and stylish …"

Trish Brunner"this is awesome! (i also work at lucasfilm...and have a bit of star wars art in my home too.)  "

Rose"Would be great in and office too. Add Lego and you've got both kids and my husband right there. "

baby boy room steve mcqueen inspirationBy far the most frequently visited style board on Lay Baby Lay is the Steve McQueen vintage.  Considering some of the links are now out of date, I thought it was time to revisit it (I know, two car boards in one week!).  If you want something less dramatic, a light blue or aqua paint color would look great as well.  I love that Great Escape poster – sort of reminds me of vintage G.I. Joe.

trains boy nursery ideas baby roomSomething about the great rumble of a train passing by with its sharp, loud whistle makes me happy. Maybe because it reminds me of my childhood, or maybe because these remnants of yesterday’s great engineering feats have a timeless and consistent quality, but either way I find this a fitting focus for a nursery.  And besides, what little boy doesn’t like trains?


katie"So cute! I love this. I definitely need a baby now. :) "

Lara Bowditch"Another fantastic layout that is very suitable for a little boy. "

Kitty"Love this!  Wish you were around as a resource when my boys were born :-). "
