Nursery Decor & Baby Room Ideas

playhouse inspiration

I’m working on a playhouse project with Home Depot, and I’ve been gathering up inspiration and drawing out some plans.  I’m really excited about building this for the girls.  I’ve been wanting to do a playhouse for some time now, and finally it’s going to happen!  It’s going to be a fun space that will hopefully spark lots imagination and delight, and I think it’s going to appeal greatly to Vivi’s current dramatic flair.

Pineapples seem to be the fruit of the season – here is some inspiration centered around them.  Go to BHG Style Spotters to find the sources to everything above!


twin nursery inspiration

A little twinspiration today.  Loved that “rebels with a cause” banner, and thought it perfect for a shared room.  I also love that pendant light – modern and playful at the same time!  Sort of has a tinker toy look.

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!

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!


Lanise"Love this collection! Thank you for including my minty blue ombre pillows. I adore those baskets "
