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.

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!).

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!

My friend Stacie of the awesome shop Gingiber is celebrating the launch of her online store (outside of Etsy!) this week and next week, and she is offering a 20% discount on purchases made this week and next week with the code NEWGINGIBERSHOP.  She has the cutest prints, animal pillows, tea towels, cards, and more.  I love her adorable animal illustrations, and they are perfect additions for a nursery or kids’ room!  Above are a few favorites (although it’s hard to pick – I am crazy about all the sheep, too!).


Stacie"Oh Joni! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I cannot express my thanks enough! "

neutral niceties

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.

nature baby room ideasI was listening to some old music I had this weekend, and “Ripplin’ Water,” a song by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band felt especially inspiring with the change in seasons.  It captures the feel of a crisp fall day spent outdoors in a pine forest with your favorite person in the world and no one else around for miles.  I love the warm red tones above and the vintage nature photographs.  They remind me a little of my parents’ honeymoon photos, and this entire board makes me want to drive to the mountains for a hike up to a waterfall amongst the changing leaves.

Stay posted for a fun giveaway from Darling Clementine tomorrow!  Also, check out this fun roundup of shared kids’ rooms by Apartment Therapy – Vivi & Brigette’s room is featured along with several other great inspirations!
